The past couple of post I have written about exploring different design techniques and tools. Here is a simple 3d house that I created using Google Sketchup, Adobe Illustrator and patience. The patience was need in order to figure out the best way to place the glue tabs. The end product is this great building block of a 3d House.
My last post I mentioned that I had some thing share from the comment section in my File Library Form. You may wonder if I read them and the answer is YES!! I have some wonderful creative people visiting my blog and downloading files from my file library. In fact, I will be creating a page to share website/blogs that people have shared with me. These are websites/blogs that have some amazing talent.
After sending a short email for permission to share Memories By Anna Dawn by Anna Dawn. She has allowed me to write a few lines of gratitude. As you can see from the photo of their family there appears to be visual differences. In particular the little girl sitting on the lap of Anna Dawn. After reading the profile of Anna Dawn, I found that her daughter has a rare genetic skin disorder called Netherton Syndrome.It’s a genetic disorder, so you can’t “catch” it, she was born with it. I was very touched and moved by the level of education/information Anna Dawn expressed in her blog about how people her daughter as being visually different. Her approach of sharing not only the medical needs of her daughter but also the emotional issues they experience as a family.
As a father of a son, nearly close to her daughters age, I would not want him to shy away from interacting with someone that may be visually different. I believe this is always the drive we have in raising our children. So, in the end of reading the post on the side of Anna Dawn’s blog I have become better informed on those that suffer from Netherton Syndrome. When asked, “Dad, why does that little boy/girl look different” I can reply with the correct information as to why. More importantly, I can also give the advice that he should not shy away, but embrace them with the same amount of love and compassion as any other human being. We may be different but we all have the same needs of “Love and caring.”
Anna Dawn is a great crafter and designer. I encourage you to check out her Etsy Shop, links to tutorials she has created as well information about Netherton Syndrom. If you haven’t gotten a chance to see her post on Teacher Appreciation I encourage you to do so. This idea and design is so CUTE!!! I would list it as one of my many favorites.
More importantly, I hope you take a minute to give a monetary donation for items that are not covered under insurance. Her Paypal Donation button is located on the right hand side of her blog.
Thank you Anna Dawn for your time and allowing me to share your story. This file is dedicated to you!!
