Our Purpose

Posted by Jessica Mastin on


Have you ever had a hard time knowing what to say or do for a friend who is going through a hard time? If you have, you aren't alone.

I have mentioned before, the story of how Sunnyside Creations started. But as I've examined it more, I've realized the true purpose and mission of this business. I want to help empower you to reach out to your loved ones no matter what the circumstance is, even if you feel nervous or unsure of what to say. I want to help you find the joy in gift giving and love the connection it brings. 

The need for heartfelt and meaningful gifts became apparent during one particular experience in my life. I was at a complete loss of what to say or do for my friend. She had had a stillborn little boy. As I read her social media posts tears came to my eyes, and my heart ached for her. A little while later, I had a cousin who experienced a miscarriage. Again, I read her social media posts and I could only imagine the pain she was feeling. But I could not think of what to say or do. I did text them to ask how they were doing, but my words felt hollow. I wanted something more. 

These experiences inspired the pieces I have created. I have always had a great love for inspiring quotes, and I believe most people have been moved by words at some point or another. I feel that these gifts can truly say the words that you can't think of.

I want you to find the peace I felt on the birthday of my friend's stillborn baby. She asked us to light a candle to remember her little guy. I was so excited to be able to take it a step further and send her the Angel Baby Necklace, the piece that her little boy had inspired.  

There is a tenderness, joy and peace that comes from true, meaningful gift giving. The kind that brings tears, hugs, shouts of joy and strength to a relationship. 

So, the next time you feel the desire to reach out to a loved one, I challenge you to take that action. If you feel lost, explore our collections to find the gift that will speak specifically to her circumstance. Don't wait, you can support her in a way that nobody else can.
