Filling Buckets With Handmade Kindness

by jennifer

My daughters are an endless source of inspiration. I wrote this column published in today’s edition of The Grand Rapids Press after witnessing one of their recent backseat conversations in my review mirror. We were on the way home from school and I was very pleased to see my oldest applying the day’s lesson to “fill a bucket” for someone in her life. I was even more pleased to see that the bucket she chose to fill was her little sister’s.

You can read the full story here.

I will be doing a TV segment with a handmade Valentine theme on WZZM Channel 13’s “Take Five” morning show on Tuesday. There’s still time to add some more projects to the mix, so tell me all about your favorite handmade gift ideas. And, yes, I will credit all my sources.

And in semi-related news, I added CraftSanity Magazine bulk packs to the shop last week so you can buy all five issues at once an save money on the magazine and shipping, too. These packs would make great V-day gifts for the crafters. I’d rather have a collection of patterns, stories and recipes than a diamond necklace any day, but maybe that’s just me. :  )

Have a good one. I’m off to test some patterns and edit a podcast.
