Dear Ivy Friends,
The Kickstarter Event has officially launched and you are invited to journey along.
I have reopened my studio. I welcome you into my humble place where Ivy began, ready to expand the line with new designs and stories.
Setting the duration of the event to 60 days will bring the end right up to the holidays. I wish to gift you joy and promise this season. Joining together to bring Ivy back will be the best present ever, there is nothing more I could ever ask for. I hope to gift the young patients at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital some special Ivy wonderment in the upcoming new year, adding hope to their lives gives the return a higher meaning. With grace, we can make it happen. I am here on borrowed time ready do as much as I can with my remaining life. I wish for Ivy to inspire you to find happiness and joy.
Ivy’s hidden messages encourage children not only to dream, but also how to deal with life’s ups and downs, giving them a huge advantage as they maneuver through life. Scientific studies have proven a positive mindset will reduce depression, stress and anxiety in their daily activities. It will improve their resilience throughout their adult years and significantly enhance their ability to cope with adversity.
The Ivy & Innocence storybook is filled with stories portraying an optimistic message that leaves an uplifting impact on the reader, young or old. Hope is a key aspect of optimism. Life is an exciting gift and each day holds something new. This creates an exciting future not only for you, but for your children… becoming the adults that go out exploring, inventing, and discovering ways to make our world a better place.
Let’s encourage our children to dream. Inspire them with uplifting, positive stories so they are filled with wonder. Who knows what amazing things they will aspire to do in the future.
