The Comfort Doll Project

on January 2, 2018

Happy New Year!

I always like to start the New Year off by reading a couple inspirational business books, setting some goals and intentions and cleaning out the office.

This year cleaning out the office has a whole different meaning as I moved this past fall and am still working my way through getting things set up in the home!

One of my intentions this year is to bring more meaning to my work and that includes my hobbies that inspire my work of art journaling and sewing.

As a part of that intention, I’ll be sharing ways that you can get creatively involved too. Sometimes people ask me, “I want to do something but I don’t know what to do.” Hopefully some of these ideas will work for you!

This month, I am showcasing The Comfort Doll Project. The Comfort Doll Project is a group of artists who create and donate their beautiful dolls to be delivered specifically to women in domestic violence shelters. Each doll has a card attached that reads:

“I am a comfort doll. I was made especially for you. by a woman’s heart and hand who cares. When you need strength or just a smile, hold me and feel the love I send. Like me, you are unique and worthy, beautiful and deserve all the good things in life. You have the strength within yourself to be extraordinary. Find the strength and shine. ” Comfort Dolls–Created with our hands–given with our hearts.

Anyone can sew one of these dolls and give them to either your local shelter or mail them to the project for donation to their shelters. There are patterns available on the website

Comfort Dolls also has a Facebook page here.

If you decide to sew a comfort doll, I’d love to see your finished project posted at Mindy Hardwick Romance Author Facebook Page.
