This is a picture of their family on their "Gotcha Day". The day they met their son for the first time 3 years ago.
Angela from Radiant and Bright sent me a whole package of goodies. Angela sent a "Hug Bell" which you just have to read about in her shop. She sent hair clippies (so cute), adoption bookmark and the wonderful meditation CD.
I am not someone that knows how to relax at all and I put this CD in and couldn't believe how easy she made it for me to relax. I will let Angela explain it more for you below.
Radiant and Bright also has some very cool suncatchers. When I was a child my mom had one of these in the kitchen window and we were so excited everytime the kitchen was filled with rainbows.
When did you open your Etsy shop? February of 2010, when we decided to start the adoption process again.
Can you tell us about your adoption fundraiser? Three years ago we adopted a little boy from Korea and he has been such a light in our life. He is such a blessing to our entire family. When we adopted him, we never thought it would be possible for us to adopt again due to all the expenses. Well, a few months ago my little man told me he wanted a brother or sister and it just about broke my heart. That is when my husband and I decided that we would not let money come between us and another child. We will find a way to bring home a brother or sister for Cy!
That is when I decided to open Radiant and Bright Creations. About a year ago, I started making suncatchers for friends and family and have gotten so many compliments. They make great gifts and really brighten up a room. My son just loves the rainbows from the suncatchers and he inspired me to create one to go along with an adoption poem that I wrote.
I work as a Massage Therapist a few days a week and many of my clients are under stress. I am always being asked for relaxation tips and my number one answer is meditation. With my clients in mind, I decided to create my Serenity meditations. This is a wonderful system for beginners to find serenity.
My Lily Love Hair Clips were just something that jumped out at me. Since we already have a little boy, I thought oh how sweet it would be to have a little girl to put dress up with these precious hair clips. We would be more than happy with another little boy, but if we have a girl, her name will be Lily.
I also plan on adding an Infant Massage guide to my Etsy shop very soon! Who knows what else we will come up with. We are having fun!
All the profits from the handmade items in this shop will be used towards our adoption. Thank you for supporting our adoption journey. We are so grateful!
Do you take custom orders on your clippies? Yes!
