How are you? ...
I'm busy getting things organised for another night with my group ... Sometimes it is hard to keep coming up with ideas that I can present for them ... being that they are limited in their abilities it takes a fair bit of work ... And what would I do without the internet and you wonderful bloggers out there who share your creations, your ideas and your tutorials? Lots of my inspiration come from you ... and I am able to adapt most things so that my group of mentally and physically challenged can create something nice to take home ... So I thank you ...
To see their progression each week is a blessing ... I have no training at all ... either in teaching craft or with special needs ... but we seem to gel ... maybe because I find it so simple to see beyond their disabilities ... and because I have taken them to my heart and they in return bring me such joy ... So as time consuming as it is ... preparing each week is worthwhile ... and this week we are going to make brooches and of course cards ... here is a little look ..
This will be the finished article ... I still have a lot of cards to cut and bows to make
I had a lot of felt in my stash .... and I got the badges for 5p each ages ago in a sale
Some of the supplies ... the pretty papers were a gift from Jak
Now I need to cut card and tie bows ... I hope to be back with you soon
Have a wondeful day
