If you follow me on Instagram I *might* have overloaded your feed with the sketches of the hand-lettering pieces I’ve been working for my #howjoyfulcalendar. And you might also already know that my plan is to send over a big part of the profits to a convalescent home in Chile, to help feed abandoned grandpa’s and grandma’s. But that’s just the summary. Today I really want to share the story behind my project so all of you could know why this means so much to me.
I consider myself a very fortunate and blessed woman, I’ve always had food in my table and a roof over my head, that to me is already a HUGE blessing. My parents did everything they could so that I never experience hunger and cold, but they were not as fortunate as me when they were kids. They were both from very poor families and their stories were embedded in my heart at a very young age.
