We're Back!!!

I know Craft 4 Change has been on hiatus for a long time, but to be honest...I needed a break from a lot of things and unfortunately this was one that I needed to put on the back burner for a while. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Craft 4 Change, but felt that I wasn't giving it the attention it deserved, so decided to take some time off and regroup. I was trying to do too many projects in a year and felt I was rushing them and YOU.

I want to be more intentional with the projects and mindful of YOUR valuable time. By this, I mean that I will only be selecting projects and organizations that truly are on my heart, instead of just trying to come up with things to make and charities to help. I hope that makes sense, as I feel it will be much more meaningful and productive.  I am planning only doing 3 projects a year, beginning in 2017.

There are a few things that truly break my heart so I will be concentrating on those groups of people in the future. It's not that I didn't before, but I think that I was just trying to help everybody instead of really thinking too much first.  What this means, is that we might be repeating projects or organizations. (as we have in the past).  We might not choose a local group, as we have gone beyond our state lines and borders before and you didn't seem to mind. It will depend on the need. I hope you understand where my heart is coming from and continue to support and participate in our projects. I can't do this alone and appreciate each and every one of YOU that step up and have no idea how much you all mean to me.

Love you all,

So, I betcha' wondered what happened to all of those pillowcases, scarves and hats we made LAST year, right?

Sparks of Hope Update:

Stripes, checks and stars. Flowers, cowboys and cars!  Just some of the colorful and creative pillowcases that were delivered to Sparks of Hope this past November...just in time for their Winter Camp. I can only imagine the smiles on the faces of these very special kids as they got to choose "just the right pillowcase" for themselves.

I am once again, blown away of how generous YOU are when it comes to our projects. Once again, YOU came through for kids in a very special camp for survivors of abuse.  Are you ready to find out how many?  Drum roll please...

101 pillowcases!!

Loaves & Fishes Update:

Knitted, crochet and no-sew fleece scarves took over my kitchen island, along with hats, gloves and even socks! So many beautiful colors, patterns and was amazing!  Plenty of love went into making these treasures. Our local homeless folks were truly blessed by your caring hearts and generosity.

Sister Libby at Loaves and Fishes was so excited to receive these gifts of love.  She works with our homeless community, or as she calls them, "guests" on a daily basis and knows each one by name. Each person is treated with respect and dignity.

Oh, how many? 

191 scarves and 43 hats!

So, now that you have been caught up on all things Craft 4 Change, look for our newest project real soon!  (hint: one of our favorites!)

God bless you all!
