I’m a bit overwhelmed today by the unfairness of life. By the inequality of opportunity. By the way our fate can be determined by the place and circumstances of our birth.
And I look through the posts of the blogs to which I subscribe, and I think, really? We’re worried about having sparkly shoes when others, even our neighbors, lack enough to eat?
I don’t have anything against sparkly shoes, by the way. There’s a good possibility I’ll make some for myself at some point.
I love crafty blog land. I love the people here. I love the inspiration I receive. I love how my little projects enrich the lives of my children, or help me stay organized.
But I want to do a little more. Maybe you do as well. Here’s a glimpse of what I’m thinking:
One for you, and one for me.
If I make something for myself, or for my children, then I will also make something for someone else to give away. I will likely make duplicates of most of my projects, and use the second to bless someone else.
It’s very small, and very simple.
But I think it might make a very big difference.
I’m beginning with a simple crayon wallet. I’ll post about that soon. If you’re interested, I’ll include the tutorial; I had a hard time finding a free pattern online.
In the meantime, I’m going to work on a button. I’m thinking something similar to the Process Pledge you’ll find on the right-hand side of my blog. That way, anyone who wants can join in, and we can all be part of something a little bigger than ourselves, utilizing the talents we’ve been given to bless others. One for me, and one for you.
