I kept the envelope simple. I just trimmed the edge of the (flap of the) envelope with the red rick-rack. This was extra fun to make. It feels good to know that I am part of a greater good. The money from card sales is going to Elder Craftsmen, a NYC-based organization that brings craft workshops to senior citizens. How cool is that? I had no idea an organization like this even existed until recently. This just touches my heart to its depths. I am now considering volunteering at this organization one day a week during my summer vacation. I've been thinking about volunteer work for a while and how important it is to me. What a blessing to be able to share one's time, heart, and creativity with others!
Next, I thinking about entering this one, just for fun. There's no way I'd ever win any of those prizes. I know how many super talented seamsters there are out there, and I'm just getting back in my game and all...But it's all about playing, right?
