Free Digital Word Art | Love In Action

I received a request a couple week's ago from a woman in Alabama who has been living through the recent tornado devastation. She's doing Project Life and wondered if I had any hand-drawn packages that included words related to disaster and devastation. I didn't.

I emailed her back and asked her if she had a list of words she'd like to see. This set is a compilation of her list and a couple I added. I loved that her list included both words of loss and hope.

I'm offering this set for free in the hopes that it will encourage more people to tell their own real life stories.

    Thanks Ali, these are wonderful words for all sorts of disasters. Our part of the world has had devastating floods and fires over the last few years. You are very generous.

    This gift brings me to tears this morning. My mother went into hospice care this week, and just reading your words brings so many feelings to the surface that I have not been able to express. Thank you Ali.

    Thanks so much, Ali. We suffer hurricanes and fires in South Florida and unfortunately, I have had use for these words. Thanks for your kindness and giving them to us for free.

    Oh Ali you are too much. Thank you so so very much for this gift. My family and my husband's family have gone through horrific flooding and a massive cyclone (tropical system bigger then Hurricane Katrina) and these words will for sure be in my PL for these weeks. Thanks again so much and lets hope that we don't need to use them too often (no offence to your talent and work). Bless you.

    Thanks Ali.
    I am from Christchurch which currently is recovering from two major earthquakes and happened to be in Japan at the time of the earthquakes and tsunami there. I have lots of images I would like to incorporate into my scrap booking and these words will be a great starting point!

    Thank you for creating and sharing these Ali. I just completed my PL pages from the week that those tornados came through our area (I am in North GA). I have not uploaded those to my website yet but they will be there soon. I may go back in and re-edit some of the images to include your words... Thank you for sharing these with everyone.

    Thank you so much Ali. Many years ago we experienced a devastating tornado here in Illinois and know that helpless feeling. But there is hope and healing.

    Ali, thank-you so much for the words! April 9, 2011, 17 tornadoes struck NW IA(up to EF4's). Our acreage was spared with only hail damage, but 11 of our hog confinement buildings/nurseries nearby were completely destroyed. This storm struck after dark, took out towns, hit rural areas with no sirens and yet,amazingly no loss of life in IA that night. With only a couple of minutes to get to the basement after electricity went out, I grabbed our scrapbooks & SD cards. Everything else was replaceable. Oh yeah, of course I grabbed my 4 kiddos & hubby as well.:) I have hundreds of photos of the aftermath to scrapbook and these words will be perfect. Thanks again, Ali!

    My sister just passed away suddenly after beating leukemia. (She died from pneumonia as a result of having no immune system from the chemotherapy) on March 29. She left two kiddos behind; ages 16 and 11. Some of these words will most definitely be used in layouts I create for her kiddos and for myself. Thank you for your generosity.
