Crafting with kids is awesome!

Recently I returned to the classroom to make a couple of cards with a few students.  I must say that this was so much fun!  The students had a wonderful time and were so excited that their cards were going to be making a plane ride from California to Alabama where they will find their way to Flower's Hospital in time to greet the children who will be spending their time there for the holidays.

I think they did a fabulous job putting together the embellishments that were given to them to create these adorable cards!!!  They also each wrote a special message on the inside.  Thank you so much kids!  You were awesome!!

This is the card I showed them as an example, and below are the cards that they created!!

If you would like to join us this month and make cards for the children who will be spending Christmas in the hospital, click HERE for all the details.  Thank you so much.  Each card represents a selfless act and puts another smile on a child's face!!  We appreciate you all so much.

Have a fabulous day.

I Feel the Love Project- Nov./Dec. 2013

Honoring a past recipient by creating 
cards for children who will be 
spending Christmas in the very 
hospital that is treating her!!

For those of you who are new to this site and project, Trin is an amazing 11 year old young lady who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in January of 2012.  The I Feel the Love Project fell in love with this darling girl and honored her as the March 2012 recipient of our handcrafted cards.  We have been following her progress since then and providing medical updates from time to time.  The latest update provided on her Facebook page states that: 
---Sweet Trin has been admitted to the hospital once again to receive platelets.  Her mother wrote that "this beautiful girl's platelets may be low but her spirit is high!"  Trin has had her ups and downs battling this brain tumor.  Trin has returned home from the hospital. 

Look at the photo of this victory!  Trin dresses for school this October!!  This captures her fighting spirit!!
So with the holiday season upon us once more, we decided that we would send cards to the children spending the holiday at Flowers Hospital.  This is the hospital where Trin receives some of her treatments.  If she is feeling up to it, we are hopeful that she even be able to see some of the kids receive their cards.  We will be praying for this to happen.
If you would like to participate in this month's project, we are looking for Christmas/holiday cards for children.  These will be distributed to children spending the holiday in the hospital.  These will be signed cards, or if you would like to make multiple cards, we can have our staff sign them.  It is always fun to include the state or country where you are from.
We are allowing for an extra week this month's project as we want to collect as many cards as possible for the kids who will be spending Christmas in the hospital.  If you would like to be a part of this month's project:
