💕This pair... you guys, this pair of ears was one of my most challenging, but also a pair I'm most proud of...
When my friend told me she was wearing her late husband's favorite Disney tee on our trip, I knew I HAD to make a pair of coordinating Waffle and Bacon ears. Her husband, Chris, an Air Force Veteran (🇺🇸), was an amazing and brave soul who found humor in everything... through good and bad and many years of heartache, pain and loss.
He thought this shirt was HILARIOUS. He wore it on their trip in February, [their last before he passed away in March]. Ash wore it on our trip as a tribute to him and we had the funnest trip ever....we thought we might have laughed off ALL the calories we ate, which probably would have made Chris shake his head and laugh even harder. He had the most amazingly exuberant and contagious laugh and was so fun to be around. That laugh could get anyone to crack a smile. 💕

✌🥓💙... PS how funny is it that @xoashleyvictoria
and I actually ran into Cody at Blaze Pizza last night? He was so friendly and kind (even though I was a little bit #awkwardpanda
because NERVOUS 😂🤤😬).
I was so excited to put my creative juices to work on such an awesome pair. The creative process is something that can't be forced or pushed, you just have to let it come and this one was a tough one! I played around with this design for days and days before I finally decided it was perfect... the double trim, the sparkle accents in the bacon ... I just absolutely love how Chris's shirt, Ash's story, and my creativity came together to create a meaningful momento for Ashley on this trip. 💙
