A while ago (about a year to be more specific) I posted a picture of us with a blanket that my sweet cousin Chrissa made from Emilie’s clothes. I said that I would make another post about the blanket later…. and it is now later! To tell Chrissa thank you for making this amazing quilt, I decided to make her a book that showed her a piece of the memories we had associated with Emilie’s clothing. I was surprised how difficult making this book turned out to be for me. Digging through old pictures and reliving those memories were both sweet and bitterly painful. I then made all the layouts for each page and leaving space to write in any text for later. I then took about seven months to think about what to write. Yes, seven months. No matter what I wanted to write, it just came out wrong. Then one night (at about 3 am to be even more specific) it hit me how I wanted to write it out. I felt like I should write it to Emilie. And that is exactly what I did and the words just flowed out of me. Finally I could finish it! I wanted to share the pages with you and again tell my cousin, thank you!!!
