Wow, its almost the end of school holidays, I'm so sad about that, I have throughly enjoyed spending quality time with my cherubs, but happy at the same time, because it was great. And just think in about 10 weeks time we get to do it all over again for Christmas break. Yay.
Today I thought I'd share two things with you, both which I'm excited about. As you can see above I created a little banner for my studio, for 'In the Scrap' I love banners and I have them in every room of the house. This one was really easy to make, I just used some Studio Calico templates I already had in my studio, traced around them on some left over pretty paper from Citrus Twist Kits and cut them out, it really is that simple.
This week I read Maggie Holmes blog post here and wow it really spoke to me, it was how I have been feeling for a while now, I'm so fortunate compared to others but I wasn't sure how to reach out more and to spread some kindness in any way that I can. So last night I was up late, researching, not my usual research on Early Childhood, but research on reaching out, I found this website here and then that website lead me to all kinds of other websites and groups to long to list. Where am I going with this? Well part of what I have been feeling for a while now is that something is missing in my life, sure I have a wonderful family, I'm creative, I have a lovely home, nice things but there was something missing that I couldn't put my finger on till now.... learning how to believe in myself, have hope, gain faith that everything will work out. So rather than working on #31minutesfor31days I'm working on #31daystoarechargedlife. I'm so excited, I can't tell you. It's personal and I can't express in words where exactly this is leading me. But I can't wait to see.
So to start off my kindness campaign, which I have Maggie to thank for, any sales of my December Memories Kit is going straight to A21 campaign, you can find out about it here. And this wont' be the end of it, once my store is up and running, the money collected from sales in my store will go directly to A21 and other charities.
