Creating Keepsakes: A Special Glass Cutting Board

Creating Keepsakes: A Special Glass Cutting Board

At River Inspired, we believe in the power of personalized creations to evoke memories and bring comfort. Recently, I had the privilege of crafting a glass cutting board for a very special lady, Donna Hayes, as a surprise gift from my mother. This wasn't just any cutting board; it was a deeply sentimental piece, designed to honor the memory of her late husband.

A Heartfelt Surprise

My mother approached me with a heartfelt request. She wanted to surprise Donna with a gift that would serve as a daily reminder of the beautiful memories she shared with her late husband. Inspired by their story, I set out to create a piece that would encapsulate the love and legacy of Donna’s beloved partner.

The Emotional Impact

The day Donna received her cutting board, she was overwhelmed with emotion. She left a heartfelt comment on our Facebook page that deeply touched me:

"I have gotten things from here and they are priceless. Very, very nice."

Her words and the emotion behind them are why I do what I do. Creating pieces that not only serve a practical purpose but also carry profound emotional significance is the heart and soul of River Inspired.

Why These Projects Matter

These projects, where I get to connect with people on a personal level and create something meaningful for them, are what make my work so fulfilling. Each piece tells a story, holds memories, and becomes a cherished part of someone’s life. Knowing that I can contribute to preserving these memories and bring a bit of comfort and joy to someone's life is incredibly rewarding.

I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Donna, my mother, and all of my wonderful clients who trust me with their precious memories. Your stories inspire me every day and drive me to continue creating pieces that are more than just beautiful—they are priceless treasures.
