If you follow me on twitter you may already know about the ‘My Sister The Star’ project, however, here is a little more detail about the project.
Over the past month I have been thinking about my experience and how I could explain to any future children that they had a big sister who we loved but tragically lost. It is so important to me that Ella Rose is remembered and plays a big part in our future children’s lives.
I realised to explain this to a young child could cause confusion – and even fear – so I came across the idea of creating a children’s book which would gently explain the loss of an expected child and sibling. The book would approach the subject with sensitivity, with words and a narrative a young child would understand. Initially this was going to be a personal project for myself until a friend pointed out that my feelings would be felt by many others also. I then decided to produce the book to share with the public. I hope this book will support other parents who want to explain to their children the painful loss of a family member through a stillbirth. [Read more…]
So, I decided I wanted to give back to my fellow bloggers and run a fortnightly interview series. I hope that you enjoy the series and find some amazing new blogs to read.
Our first Interview is with the lovely Sharon AKA Little Painted Lady

Tell us about your blog? My blog is called Little Painted Lady, I started it just over 5 months ago , I wish that I would have started it when I was a bit younger as i have become so hooked,I blog about beauty/lifestyle/crafts and more. I often get asked why I chose that name for my blog, The painted lady part is the name of a butterfly, which I am absolutely obsessed with. The Little part just describes me as i am only 4 ft 11.
