This isn’t going to be a typical blog post for me, but it has been something on my heart and mind for a while now, and I would love your feedback.
I love to do crafts. I am a creative and I enjoy the process and freedom of making something beautiful. I am also fairly new to doing crafts, but I really want to learn more.
I think about all the things that we do with our hands, and I think there are endless possibilities of how we can use our hands to bless other people and bring joy to their lives. So often it is easy to get stuck on ourselves, but in my experience, some of my greatest joy has come in serving and loving others in whatever way possible.
I really want to create a community of people who enjoy making things for other people, who want to use their hands to bless their community and bring hope to people in need. Whether that would be making baby blankets for the crisis pregnancy center, or making greeting cards and sending them to hospital patients, or painting pictures to put in nursing homes…really, the possibilities are endless…I want to do this more in my personal life, but I also want to bring others with me. I want to inspire a movement of people who think beyond themselves and CREATE in order to bring joy to others. I want a place where we can share ideas of things to make and how to bless people, and share stories of how we ourselves and others have been blessed in the giving.
I don’t know how to go about this. Do I start a group on Facebook? Do I build onto my website? I need ideas, and I need your help. Would you comment or send me a message? You can contact me here on my blog or on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/chelseamaxineallin
Thank you so much!
