We had such a humbling experience last weekend…

Several weeks prior, Kristi met a new friend while painting and became her “Facebook Friend.”

Not too long after that, across her news feeds came the heart-wrenching story of the loss of their two twin daughters, born way too early, and taken WAY too soon!

We had the privilege of being able to paint at the benefit for the March of Dimes team that was formed in the honor of the lost twins, Team Sophie and Sage. The people were amazing, generous and welcoming. The families were sweet and hopeful. We were able to contribute over $100 to the team, with the fundraising benefiting the March of Dimes of course. We painted lots of kids, several beautiful Ladies Eye Designs, and more of our Graffiti Style awareness ribbons – The ribbon for twin to twin transfusion syndrome happens to be pink and blue… Check out the pics below…

And before you do, we want to thank the Hammer and Phillips families from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to be a part of the fundraiser! Thanks so much! ~Kristi and Shelly
