I apologize for being MIA.
It’s been a crazy couple of months and even crazier couple of weeks…How are you coping?
I am fortunate to be able to work from home. I set up my dining room table as my work station. Every morning I get up (5am – my usual time), shower and get ready as I would if I were going to work (only in more casual clothes). Before starting work, I put water on for tea and make myself breakfast. I don’t have young kids at home. My husband, if he is going into work has already left before I come down. Some days he has been home – and he joins me at the other end of the dining room table (that he set up for his work station). It hasn’t been too bad at all. To tell you the truth, I have an endless amount of unfinished projects. Enough to keep me busy for a very long time.
Have you been practicing social distancing….
Are you hoarding supplies like toilet paper? I don’t go out, unless we’re out of something . We do try to support our local restaurants when we can and order take out. People are really struggling and we all need to find a way to contribute and help. We are in this together and we will get through this together.
I know I told you I now volunteer with Bring Smiles to Seniors. It’s a non-profit organization founded by Ron Tyson. Here’s a link to find out more about this wonderful organization that lifts up Seniors: https://www.facebook.com/bringsmilestoseniors/
I’ve been sending out more and more cards each month. It has quickly become one of my favorite things to do. Some of the Seniors that I write to have written me back telling me how much joy receiving cards gives them. They look forward to getting mail everyday. How awesome is that!
Crafting is good for the soul.
I posted this yesterday on my Creative Downtime Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Creative.Downtime/
It’s something all ages enjoy.
During this time of physical distancing, sending cards to nursing homes, those on the front lines and family is a win-win as both you and the receiver enjoy a smile and feel good. Sending cards is so important. As the receiver it shows that the sender cares, that they are not alone. The sender while they enjoy creating the card they can feel good knowing that their creativity and note will bring joy to the receiver.
I create dozens of cards to send to Seniors ever month through Bring Smiles to Seniors.
If you don’t have supplies you can use our card kits to make cards to send. There is no better time than now to start sending our cards.
