Here we are at the end of February already! Another exciting and busy month!
My most exciting news and opportunity to share is that I have applied to become a foster care advocate through The Forgotten Initiative. As part of the application process, I will be completing a project for our local foster care community, and making over the Visitation Area at our DCS office. We are super excited to have this privilege and would like to invite those of you who might be interested to be a part!
|Current room we will be "warming up"!|
The goal of this project is to make this area a more inviting place to encourage family healing and bonding. We also want it to be a warm and cheerful place for all who use it. I have created a Target wishlist with items that will help do this. Additionally, I will be shopping at Hobby Lobby for "family" decorations and Home Depot for our paint and supplies if you'd like to contribute Gift Cards. Here's a LINK TO THE WISHLIST which includes items from $5-$350 and all are equally needed and would be put to good use! I will of course share photos here so you can see any gifts you have given, in action! If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me. Thanks in advance for your support and encouragement. 😊
On the alternatively creative front, I have been steadily pushing my way through a stack of projects and clearing room on my cutting table for easier productivity.....at least that lasts until I start work on the next project! It's the thought right???
I finished a second dress for my oldest daughter, and this one was to her satisfaction with all my kinks worked out. Now on to the final and original requested prints for her graduation dress! I am so very honored that she asked and trusts me to make this special dress for her, that she will always remember. 💗
I haven't started sewing any yet, but have cut out even more stuffed friends for the FLUFF Project. I've got mermaids coming out my ears! My hope is to have the largest delivery to date this year....something I'll share more about soon! I'm going to be sewing these piles for MONTHS I imagine! Truly, wouldn't have it any other way! Such a blessing to get to send love and hugs to so many children facing tough times. Fairfield World has once again shown their incredible generosity and support by sending over Poly-fil to help stuff all these handmade friends! We are soooo grateful!
ANNNND..... I'm about to BURST to share the adorable new mascot and logo a dear friend created for the FLUFF Project! Squeeeeee!!!! Perfection I tell ya!
|My latest FLUFF Project finishes!|
I also have a stack of family PJs to get finished. These were started before Christmas. Yes. That's all I've got to say about that.
And, we had a very special project date with our homeschool group and created Valentine's gifts for the elderly, at home members of our church. Each one included a fleece knot blanket the kids helped make and a bag of treats. Delivering these was a special, special day!
So. How about you? What sewing and/or creating have you been up to? What plans do you have for the coming month? Share with me here or on any of my social outlets linked at the top of my sidebar. Thanks again for being here!
#SewToShare and bring hope and happy to others!
