As I have been searching sites for ideas and inspiration I stumbled upon this thing called Craft Hope. Its where people craft for a cause. This months mission is to make bracelets for orphans in russia. I am totally into this, and it is my new obsession for the next month.
I want to do this in order to be a part of something bigger than myself. Its a great way to do something small, but know that it will make a big difference to those children who have nothing. I am trying to think of new ways to create bracelets so that not everything is the same.
I stated this yesterday, and I have made three bracelets already. Of course, my conviction may waver through the month, so I am not sure I will be able to keep up such a pace. But I like the idea of coming together with others and working toward a common goal.
It's like an independent activity that connects you to many people all at the same time.
I hope that maybe through this others will join and this can make an even bigger impact. I have decided I am going to focus my bracelet making on making ones for the boys. Its easy to use pretty colors and shiny beads, but I am taking a different path, wanting to make sure that everyone will be included.
