laugher is the best medicine

i've been stressed, which is no secret. but one of the main stresses is my mom's recent breast cancer diagnosis {which is all i'll say about that}
so, true to my family's form, i dealt with the news with craft therapy and humor.
and then sent my mom a little package with this "tasteful and classy scarf", as i referred to it in the accompanying card.

a boobie scarf!
{knit by me}

she laughed so hard she cried. and it arrived just in time to relieve a little stress. and while it's been really hard to be so far away from her right now, i feel like i'm finally there, in spirit if not in body. 
we all need a boobie scarf now and then :)


  1. first, i'm so sorry about your mom's diagnosis. i'm glad you are incorporating humor into dealing with it though. and this scarf is a riot. :] did you make it? xoxo babe.

  2. That's so sweet, Angie . . . I'm sorry you (and your mama) are going through this, but I'm sure the scarf cheered her up, at least for a bit. Last year, I did the 60 mile breast cancer walk, and it was so inspiring to see all the survivors walking . . . sending good thoughts your way!

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your mom. I will keep her in my thoughts. I LOVED how you made best of the situation though. We need more simple moments like that in our life. I'm sure she appreciated you so much when she received it.

  4. this is amazing. i'm so sorry to hear about your mom, but sometimes something like this is the thing that gets everyone through it.

  5. I will keep you and your momma in my thoughts and prayers. In the meantime, keep doing what your doing. The boobie scarf is wonderful and I'm sure it brought her a lot of happiness :)
