Day 23 of My 25 Days of Make & Give: Creative time shared


Today’s Make & Give is all about sharing. It was a very gloomy rainy kind of day, weather-wise, but you would never know that by the festive creative spirit that pervaded my home today. I opened up the my studio and the room adjacent, to some of my most beloved local sewing student alumnae. We keep in touch through text, email and social media but nothing beats the in-person connection. Not exactly knowing how creatively ambitious the ladies would feel this afternoon, I set up four different fabric and paper related projects. With Christmas music in the background and lots of yummy confections for sustenance, they pleasantly surprised me by really jumping right in, crafting and sewing all afternoon!  The age range from high school to working professional made no difference whatsoever. All the women chatted about work, school, movies, music and pop culture in general with each other while they created. A couple of their moms even joined in the fun! I so loved seeing each one, catching up on their lives and sharing creative time and space. The gals came and went as we are all so pressed for time during the holiday season. But it was so good to see them all. We are definitely doing this again next year! Love you gals!
