sconnieandjam Last week I said "farewell" to a close friend's newborn baby, Leo. Leo was born on 16 April. He looked perfect but he had medical issues with his brain that only one in 30,000 children are born with. And after an MRI my friend and her husband were told that there was nothing to be done. Leo passed away on April 20 and I will never forget that day. My heart broke for him and for my darling friends and their two other sons. On Thursday, we officially said goodbye. At Leo's funeral we were fortunate enough to be able to watch a presentation of Leo's life which included many photos and video taken over the four short days he spent on earth taken by a fantastic organisation called Heartfelt.
Heartfelt is a group of professional photographers who volunteer their time to take photos of still born, premature or seriously and terminally ill children free of charge.
Leo's mum was just so appreciative of all their work. Leo's four days were a bit of a blur for her but the Heartfelt team knew what to do and captured truly touching moments that will no doubt be cherished for the rest of their lives.
I am desperate to help raise enough money to make sure that no family will have to miss out on their services. This will be an ongoing thing for me but as a start and seeing as it is Bereaving Mother's Day today, I have opened up a Facebook Sale album on the Sconnie and Jam page with special deals and proceeds going towards Heartfelt. Over the next week we will be adding more items from some info the darlings in our lives who have been so generous for this cause.
Please check out the album (link to our fb page in profile) and share the album or this post. Every share that we can see will be placed in a draw for a Sconnie and Jam voucher after the sale finished next Sunday.
Thank you xxxx

sconnieandjam If you've ever wondered what a chihuahua wired after a chocolate binge looks like...here it is! Bubbles (left) and Poppy are home now. Not out if the woods yet. Potential heart issues and pancreatitis risk over the next week and a bit. Am supposed to keep them quiet during that time. That's going to be a tough task!
Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers and lovely words. We really appreciate it.

sconnieandjam It devastated me to hear a little 9 year old say "I'm no good at drawing flowers" yesterday at the drawing session at @thenestcommunity so I introduced her to @lisacongdon flowers and she produced something she could be really proud of. Made me happy! 4w

sconnieandjam @kid_coco and I are so stoked to see this picture of some of our new David Lynch collection designed specifically for the @qagoma Between Two Worlds Exhibition. Funnily enough, one of our most amazing friends and die-hard Twin Peaks fan Amanda from @hungrydesigns was designing a Twin Peaks range at the same time. Over the moon to be sharing a picture and shelf space with that awesome broad. 2mon
