With the economy being in the shape it is in, I know that quality handmade gifts are becoming a difficult thing for so many to afford. If you are not a crafter or artist you may not know that it cost more these days to make something than it would cost to purchase it. (Not to mention selling them for what they are really worth.) But don't give up on a hand-made holiday season.
I have spent the year making hats and scarves (to donate to charity) from my supply stash... which has dwindled down to one small shoe box of yarn. I am ready to send them off to warm the heads of people who need a blessing. I am very thankful I can do something with my nothingness to help others. I hope all of my creative friends can find a way to use their skills and talents to give back to the world this season. I know that when I do I get very introspective and so very grateful for all that I have. (It really isn't much but it is so much more than others.) This thought process stirs up a form of creative inspiration and strength.
This year I think we all NEED that holiday magic more than ever.
Creativity is the Change we Need!
Thank you for following me, supporting me, and encouraging me to continue to be creative. You feed my soul enough to keep me going and hopefully spread the inspiration back to others.
Let's make this a creative, magical and thankful holiday season.
