I do believe crafting heals (along with conversation, long walks, and mother nature) and I saw this idea in the news and on Pinterest this morning. We talked about it last night at dinner, and everyone’s in. We have paper and scissors, and we still have hopeful hearts with a need to do something more. Yesterday I committed my first of 26 acts of kindness. I struggled all day with what would be significant enough. But when I got to the grocery store and was asked to make a donation to the local food bank, it occurred to me that all I had to do was simply say yes. So I did. And it’s a tiny bit better this morning. Onto the snowflakes and the next 25 acts. Here are some tutorials: Making Snowflakes and of course, a ton more on Pinterest.
From the Connecticut PTSA:
When school resumes for Sandy Hook, it will be in a new building. Parent-volunteers are working to ensure that the students are welcomed back by a winter wonderland with the entire school decorated with as many unique snowflakes as possible. We encourage senders to be as creative as possible, remembering that no two snowflakes are alike. Please make and send snowflakes by January 12, 2013 to the Connecticut PTSA at:
