Buttons, Elizabeth Davis

Elizabeth Davis


about these pieces.
In Beth's words, "These buttons were made for a memorial walk, held by the pediatric hospital I work for, called 'Hopebuilders 5K' on October 10, 2009, where a team of my coworkers walked for Kathlyn. I made the buttons with her picture, handprint, and some of the scrapbooking supplies and stickers that were meant to go in her baby girl scrapbook. It was soothing to me to make use of the supplies that I thought would only otherwise collect dust until I have another daughter or even IF I have another daughter. I have since made more buttons for people to wear at a candle lighting ceremony, and I have some more ready to be made because I get requests for them all the time. My daughter is so loved and mourned by so many."
