Oh my goodness, I just had to share this with you guys. The Spirit of the Thing.
A couple of weeks ago I put out an announcement that I was looking for an organization to make a donation to that would not resell the items. I wanted them to go directly to those that could find use in them. In my chaotic resume of Arts is another love of mine, crocheting. Something I love to do but rarely have time for. A few years back during a down period, I crocheted a boat load of hats. Seriously, I was making those things like crazy. All styles, creating patterns as I went, you name it.
Last week I donated the hats along with some Jewelry and some T-shirts (from my Fabric Painting period). This morning I received this email and pictures. My heart is still a little mushy right now :-} Life is good.
Hello friends/follower's of Steph, creator of DIVIACITY. I have been a fan of her many talents for many years. Artist of the canvas, jewelry maker, scrap book creator, crafter, Teacher, journalist and writer, poet and web wizard. A little side love that Stephanie has, she crochets.
She also has a heart for our Seniors and Disabled. This year she donated her crocheted creations to our loved ones at the Arden Rehabilitation Living Home in Sacramento Ca. Her generosity blessed over 20 residents with hats and t-shirts to keep them warm at night and something to cherish and bring them joy during the holidays.
The staff were blessed with Fashionable jewelry by Diviacity.
All of these gifts and stockings were presented to the residents and staff by the Members of Celebration Christian Center Global Impact Ministries, (CCC for short) in Sacramento Ca. CCC members go to the Home every Sunday to give them an uplifting word of encouragement and hugs of love. We also sing with praise and worship. The residents love and appreciate us in return.
Thank you Steph for the wonderful blessing.
Love and Merry Christmas
Thank you for the lovely email Cheryl. And thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures. :-) It makes me so happy to know that they loved and can use them. I wish all a beautiful way and warm Holiday spirit! :-)
Life is good,
