I have just completed one of these, but the tiny heart at the top is a little different.
This carving was designed for Donna Hall of Mt. Vernon as a gift to her granddaughter. As a grandmother, the design was nearly immediate. I knew just what she was talking about when she said that she wanted something for that special connection she felt with her. In my heart, it is talking about my own granddaughters, Aleah, Abby and Trini.
