Contest:

In June and July we are focusing on charitable crafting! 

Charity is simply about meeting a need. There are so many needs in our great big world but we don’t need to fix the whole world to make a big difference. One act of kindness is more than enough if you are the one to receive it.
You must link to a project on your page and tell us who you donated to and any other interesting information you have to share. For instance, does this charity hold a special place in your heart for some reason?
Multiple entries are allowed but you may only win once.
Two prize winners will be randomly drawn from qualified entries there. You must be a group member to win.

The first prize is a skein of Anzula Breeze (donated by Brianne). And the second prize is a beautiful bag from On The Dock Knits (donated by TrishaC).



In August and September we are going to cast on things for Christmas! Let's start working on our Christmas gifts early!

We're not limiting this to fiber arts. Any kind of art qualifies!

You must be a group member to win. You must post a picture of your project to win.


Gooseberries:

* Linda is loving her artistic journaling! She has found all kinds of fun stuff to use. She has discovered Washi Tape, Journaling Bible, Studio Oh journals, and Watercolor paints



Bless your Heart:

The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped. 
Proverbs 11:25 (MSG)
