My little sis made hat #2, an infant hat. I think this started out as a hat for a friend (one of those bearded beanies), however, I am so glad she "accidentally" followed the wrong size pattern and made it for <3 Hats from the Heart/My Journey Journals <3 instead! :) I love the little pompoms on it, and I attempted it for my Valentine hat, but no can do, I didn't like how it looked on mine. I think I need to invest in a pompom maker or something. LOL
I received several donations in the last week. My beautiful Mother-in-law donated lots of scrapbook paper for the inside of the Journey Journals for which I will be forever grateful, has anyone priced scrapbook paper and embellishments? That stuff is not cheap!
And I received an awesome donation of all kinds of yarn from her boss on the same day! The balls of yarn will make so many different flowers and the skeins of yarn will make lots of hats!
And the last donation received, was today from a wonderful lady I work with. She donated another 6 composition notebooks for Journey Journals. She has donated before, a scrap booking kit with all kinds of paper and little things in it. :) I have a total of 31 composition notebooks now that I can turn into Journey Journals! I feel a trip to my older sister's is in the near future so maybe she can help me with some creativity.
Donations make me HAPPY!!! Now I don't want that to seem like it is selfish and greedy to my reader's, it is definitely NOT meant that way! Without help from friend's and family with donations of supplies and help with the crocheting of hats, what we do would not be possible. I know I sound like a stuck record also, but I just can't explain the feeling you get when you know what you are doing and giving is bringing a smile to someones face and joy to their heart! <3 We CAN make a difference by scattering kindness! Come help me scatter the seeds of kindness so they can grow and we can be the change! Until my next update, may the light of God's love help you to Glow from Within...<3
