Pre-need and a Work of Art...Cheers to another 40 years!


Upon ordering a Winged-Heart YURN, "Fierce Robin" wrote:

Pre-need, preparing for cremation urn



It isn't too often that we get an order for pre-need arrangements... so, it was a different kind of experience to connect with Robin regarding her memorial artwork...rather than a mournful event.

She had come across our YURN listing previously.... So, with an approaching heart surgery and the encouragement of her daughter, she decided to go ahead and purchase the urn she wanted for herself. And, Lord willing, she would would be able to enjoy the piece as a work of art in her home, for many years, until the time comes to utilize it as a functional cremation urn.

We love the thoughtfulness she put into her decision, for her daughter and her outlook regarding our "art".  It's so touching to know that our art brings value and comfort to those grieving, and also to those who can enjoy them as artful home decor, prior to needing them for their intended purpose.

We enjoyed getting to know more about Robin through this experience.  Her career in healthcare and God-centered passion for helping others, her love of traveling, and her overall fun personality and zeal for life.

While working on her piece, we were surprised to wake one morning to read the sweetest five-star review on our Etsy store.....we hadn't even completed or shipped her memorial yet, and still she gave us a glowing review!  How awesome!

We received postitive review before the item was completed.

We completed Robin's Heart sculpture and she received it prior to her surgery.

We are happy to follow-up on the status of Robin's open-heart surgery...

She pulled through it like a champ!  Now, she'll heal and prepare herself for a vacation to St. Lucia in April.  :)

Live it up! With love! ~
