This colloration arose from grief and loss but is now helping to share love through little simple colourful dots - Abi's Dots.
This is the story behind them:
In May 2014 I lost my goddaughter, a father lost his bubble ball of energy, a mother lost a precious daughter, brothers lost their beautiful silly sister, friends and family lost a caring, warm and funny buddy, a community lost a shinning star. Abi Hone was more things to others than she would have ever guessed. She was simply ’Our beautiful girl’.
In the same tragic accident that took Abi’s life, we also lost two other dear friends, Mother and Daughter, Sally and Ella Summerfield. Two unbeliveably beautiful souls that left us too early. A stupid loss that came out of nowhere and ripped our hearts to pieces.
We greive and we remember our three beautiful girls.
Abi was larger than life, she was infectious and she showered all who knew her in love, laughter and silliness. She was a twelve year old girl that was excited by life and you couldn’t help but feel that too when you where around her. We were so lucky to know her.
I wanted to do something. But what?
I was honoured to be part of the celebration of her life, her funeral. It’s not right but you just had to push that aside and honour her zest, her energy and her life. I did that through colour and dots.
The amazing girls from KM2 Creative came the party and donated hundreds of coloured dots (all in Abi’s favourite colours) and we decorated everything in them – even Abi’s Dad builders truck. They made us smile even on the saddest day. A silly little colourful dot made us smile on the darkest day. The power of colour hey.
I have had these dots made up into a pack of 90 (each pack contains 15 dots in 6 colours) and we are selling these packs through the AFD Store (Based at The Vines Village in Blenheim) or the online AFD Store. They retail for $38 and $12 from each sale goes to the families chosen charity – the ‘Make a wish’ Foundation.
They are called ‘Wall Confetti’ but you can decorate anything in them, let your imagination run wild and honour Abi’s life in colour and fun.
If you would like to buy a pack you can come into the AFD Store here in Blenheim and we will send them out to you anywhere in the world.
