Winding up the year.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! As the Catalog winds down with the school year I am reminded to take things one step at a time. It seems to always get busier this time of year and with that comes some extra stress. So this year I didn’t book as many classes since school keeps at a steady craziness. It seems to be a bit better this year. How is it in your home?

How do you cope when things get hectic? Do you eat out more? Do you cancel a few things to catch up? Do you lose a little sleep? What’s your best way of getting through the calendar and checking the boxes?

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Mentoring the next generation.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Today is the day that I say thank you. Thank you for your support and trusting me to lead this crafty group. Thank you for giving not only to me, but also to the community.

I bet you’re wondering what I am talking about. This morning the Rubber Rummage Sale was wrapped up. I collected, sold, and now donated. Thank you to those that brought product to sell and eventually donate. This year’s recipient was the PLUS program at the school district.

The PLUS program helps those students that have learning disabilities and also those that have gone through something traumatic or life-altering. This program allows them to learn in a non-traditional manner. Instead of a classroom setting all day they alternate between classwork and visual therapies. One day they might teach how to paint or another might be sewing. So now they can papercraft as well.

Who knows who next year’s recipient may be. Please keep your ears and eyes open throughout the year. I will ask for suggestions when the 5th Annual Rubber Rummage Sale is announced in February 2020. It will be here before we know it. So, for now, go make an impact no matter how small or big!

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
