| In 2003, while sitting quietly after her daily meditation,
Valynda heard a clear and gentle voice guide her to make Angel cards for
children. Not being sure she was receiving divine guidance, she focused
deeper on the quietness within.
| Again, a very clear and gentle voice guided her with the
same message..... She immediately began to hear the key words that would
later become the Angel Kidz cards.
| After writing out all the words, she began doodling on a
page to draw the pictures she felt would express the feeling of each
word. She laughed at drawings, and then started to draw stick figures,
but nothing worked.
| In calm desperation she said aloud, “If you would
like me to do this please help me draw the pictures.” Again the
gentle voice came back and said, “Call Wendy.”
| Wendy, Valynda’s friend, painted children’s
wall art. It was unmistakable that she was to be a part of this project.
| Valynda called Wendy to meet for coffee and told her what
she had experienced. At first Wendy wasn’t sure about what to do
or how to do it. But Valynda told her she had to be the one, as her
guidance had been very exact. As they talked more, Wendy saw the vision
of the cards and the unique collections that would follow.
| Wendy excitedly began the drawings. Later she said, that
drawing each child was like giving birth. And, picture by picture the
Angel Kidz came alive. It took Wendy nine months to finish the drawings
for the card deck.
| Valynda then sat with the pictures that now represented
the feeling words she received and line-by-line, the messages came
forth. As she gazed at the colorful pictures of the angel children. The
Angel Kidz Cards and concept had been fully born.
| So we say, with firm belief in our connection to the
Angels and guides watching over all of us, that Angel Kidz were inspired
by the Angels and created with love by Valynda Dupre’, Author and
Wendy Konick, Artist.
In 1991 Valynda left the corporate world to develop her work as a
Transformational Healer and Teacher, specializing in Energy Balancing,
inner Child Healing and Emotional Release Work. She creates a special
environment where clients and students can experience the total power of
transformational healing and unconditional love.
| Inspired to create Angel Kidz Cards in March 2003, Valynda’s
aim was to nurture and support the child within each of us... from ages
3 to 103.
Wendy is a self taught artist who has been working her magic by
transforming bare walls into whimsical and colorful spaces for babies
and children’s rooms. Since 1999, she has taken great pleasure in
the smiling faces of each child as her creations come to life. Her love
of children and the wall art she creates made her the perfect artist to
illustrate the Angel Kidz Cards.
