Art + Animals = Compassion

Let me ask you a question, do you think fundraising for a cause is an unreasonable thing to do during this COVID time? I pondered over this question for the last few months. Watch my video to find out what I decided.

I hope you will join me in this fun and whimsical workshop where we will use brown grocery bags and transform them into lovely gift boxes that can be used as a part of your holiday giving. There is something special about making a gift with your own hands and spreading your love and joy to the special people in your life. Register here.

Register here. See you on December 5th at 11:00 AM!

Keep your eyes open for the next email from me. I will be introducing another unique project to for the “Angels for the Animals” fundraiser.

What Kids Can Teach Us

Was there a time when you realized that you love doing something that you didn’t know until you did it? I had such an awakening after I gave the Halloween Ornament workshop two weeks ago. I have never given a workshop that included kids before. I think it was because I didn’t have enough faith that kids would be capable of making the things I taught. Well, I was dead wrong! Some of the kids sent me photos of the projects they did and I got so inspired by seeing their creativity. I’m planning to do more kids workshops in celebration of the holidays throughout the year. What do you think of this idea?

Watch this Quicktime video of one of the Halloween projects I taught in the workshop. I was so inspired after giving the class, I made 20 skulls and sent them to people in my life who I thought needed encouragement. Doing this kind of action made me appreciate Halloween so much more. I realized that there is an opportunity to share your gifts with the world during every holiday that comes around in the year.

Now take a look at the whimsical skulls and bats Ellie and Maggie made. I love everything about these whacky looking creatures… the crown and the feather boas on the skull’s heads, flowered eyes on the bats, and the beautiful colors they used to paint each of the creatures. This is what I call creativity in action. Aren’t they talented? Thank you girls for sending me your wonderful work and I hope you gave them as special gifts to people in your lives.

Hand-Made Holiday Party!

Let’s get an early start and kick start your holiday season in style! Brew your favorite tea and we’ll have fun creating together in the comfort of your own home. I will give you ideas on how to make your hand-made little treasures into precious holiday gifts you can give to your loved ones and people in your life. Anything hand-made by you and given with LOVE will bring a big smile to the recipients face during this time of isolation and loneliness.

Six Simple Steps to Save Our Home.

Here is an excerpt from an open letter from Bill Gates and his views on the Corona Virus: “It is reminding us that this Earth is sick. It is reminding us that we need to look at the rate of deforestation just as urgently as we look at the speed at which toilet rolls are disappearing of shelves. WE ARE SICK BECAUSE OUR HOME (EARTH) IS SICK.

These simple steps are so easy for you to take everyday to nurture our sick earth back to health.

Six Easy Steps You Can Take to Save Our Home (Earth).

  1. Do not use plastic straws instead, use no straws or sip your drinks from bio-degradable paper straws. Read about how to dispose of your straws here.
  2. When you go grocery shopping, bring your own paper bags in the car. When you check out, refuse the bags. Instead, put all your items back in your shopping cart and roll it to your car, and transfer your products into your own bags that you brought.
  3. When you order take-out food, ask the restaurant if they package their food in bio-degradable containers. Customers have the power to change old habits into new ones in businesses.
  4. Are your grocery bags stacking up in your home? Use paper bags as a base for your creative projects.
  5. Know your recycling and composting procedures. Learn how to recycle everything in your home. Here’s how.
  6. When you dispose of your face masks, make sure to cut the loops off of the masks. This simple act will save the sea mammals and land animals from getting caught up in the loops.

I know that many of you know more than I do in this area. I would love it if you can be so kind as to share with us what simple acts you are doing to save our earth. Let’s do this together!
