Announcement   10% percent all proceeds will go towards the Hydrocephalus Association to help fund research and raise awareness of this life-long condition. It IS brain surgery!!!

Hydrocephalus or "water on the brain", as it is often referred to, is a chronic condition without a cure.  The most common treatment option is to surgically implant a medical device called a shunt in the brain. A shunt is NOT a cure as many revision surgeries tend to follow due to complications and/or blockages!

More than one million Americans live with the challenges of hydrocephalus every day.  Anyone, at any time, may be diagnosed with hydrocephalus. 
For each purchase from my store, I will donate 10% to the Hydrocephalus Association, which continues to raise awareness and support research. 

Please visit http://www.hydroassoc.org/ for more information

Thank you for your support!

Blanket is so soft! Size and color are perfect! Gave this out as a gift, with name embroidered. Kelly did a great job, and I received the item very quickly.

About

Creating unique pieces while raising awareness

Our daughter, was born pre-maturely, but healthy, in the summer of 2006. When she came home from the hospital, she was having trouble eating and had to be readmitted the following week due to dehydration (that summer was up over 90 degrees every day!) and feeding issues. She was observed in the NICU for a week and determined doing well enough to go home.

Unfortunately, when we went into get her, my husband and I were brought into the "back room" where no parent wants to go with the doctor. We were told our sweet little girl had hydrocephalus and had to go into the city hospital to have a shunt placed to help the pressure subside. The ambulance to take her in was on its way!!!

Throughout the years, we have had very little complications due to her shunt placement, but we have had many other medical concerns with Kaylee, stemming from her hydrocephalus. I have always had it in my mind to figure out how I could "give back" and support those that have helped our little girl survive and thrive, and that is how I came up with the idea for my business.

Each piece is handcrafted and put together by my own hands and therefore, no two pieces will be exactly alike, just the way no two kids with hydrocephalus are the same.
