Halo Stationery was established after the unexpected and tragic loss of my first grandchild, in the labor & delivery room, on her due date. Our family desired a way to honor and cherish sweet baby Arlee, and I needed to feel like I was doing something to help my daughter celebrate the life of her first born child.
As a Christian with a background in graphic design and illustration, I created an heirloom-inspired art print utilizing Arlee's actual hospital footprints, birth stats, and a custom designed tiny and delicate little halo. I also created word art out of the scripture, poems and songs that were part of her beautiful little funeral service. The art prints that I created have become priceless paper to us, to be passed down to future generations to honor and cherish.
Arlee taught us that we are not promised a tomorrow. And although it may just be a "piece of paper" to the world... to us, it's the only tangible memory we have, and that makes it beautiful and priceless and worthy of being called an heirloom.
The name Halo: a nod to sweet baby Arlee, in Heaven, in the arms of Jesus, where He sings her lullabies. Because of Arlee, Halo Stationery was established, and paper family heirlooms have become my business - a true beauty for ashes story. Thank you, God! And, thank you sweet Arlee, Gigi misses you deeply and can't wait to hug you in Heaven.
Enjoy browsing the shop, I do hope you'll create an heirloom for your family to be passed down.
Grace, Peace, and Paper!
