The month of November can be such a hard time to be still and reflect...
As the holiday season draws near, I want to pause and reflect on what I am most thankful for this year. What a year it has been. As I have gotten older I try to be intentional in how I spend my time. Starting a small business while raising children does present its challenges but it has also brought tremendous joy into my life. I get to spend time working with kids that love many of the same things that I do. Fabric, color, design, fashion, sewing! This is great stuff. I appreciate each little smiling face, hug and class that I get to teach. Thank you for your support.
You may have some time on your hands this week over Thanksgiving Break. I have a fun and easy activity for you to check out. (Though you just might want to save it as a gift for next month!)
The crafty kiddos that I know love to make pompoms and tassels. Everything is better with a pompom! Last week I was invited to participate in a Holiday Shop for Ghent United Methodist Church. I had a table set up to sell my clutch bags and patterns. To pass the time, I set up some space to show the shoppers how to make pompoms and tassels. You would have thought it was 1978 again. A basket of colorful yarn, scissors and these fun pompom makers, was all it took. We had a blast! You can get them in the craft aisle at Target. While there, check out some of their other Kids Made Modern craft items.
Look forward to my 12 days of Stitchmas posts beginning next week!
