A Crafty Way To Make A Difference....

I'm Crafty!

I love to craft. I love everything about it.The thought that goes into deciding on a project.Picking a pattern,design, and color scheme. Changing and re-thinking the original project until I get the final masterpiece.

My husband is always pushing to me to sell some of my crafts, either on ebay or some other web site.Or to sell them here locally in a shop somewhere, but it seems so impersonal. I poured my blood, sweat, and tears heart into my crafts. I have donated a couple of my quilts and blankets to charity's to be auctioned off. It makes me feel like I have done something to help even if I couldn't help financially(which I usually can't).

One of my other favorite things, as you may have read about here are my shoes, and whats better than having two favorite things? Combining my two favorite things and being crafty with my flip flops!

My church is doing a fund raiser right now for Hannah House, which is a residential facility for young expectant mothers, mothers that may other wise have to terminate their pregnancies. We have been collecting money in baby bottles, mostly spare change, that will be donated to help with expenses of running the facility. As I was reading through the site I came across a list of things that are needed right now. Flip Flops. Flip flops were on the list, who would have thought it! I thought about it for a few days, OK really its been a few weeks, about how I could take my couple pairs of flip flops and turn them into more.

An idea started to form slowly, I could sell my flip flops on my blog, so I would have the money to donate more to Hannah House.

So to make a long story short I can take something I love to do, be crafty, and put it to good use. For every pair of flip flops I sell on my blog I'm going to donate a pair to Hannah House.

Check out Aunt Nise's Craft Corner and help me help them.
