For the past few days I have been channeling my inner Martha Stewart.
My seven year old granddaughter decided to make Christmas cards for the residents of the Memory Care home her mom works at. I am in charge of making snowflakes and stapling one into each card.
The idea came to her after I stuck all the ones she and her cousin made last week on my windows…
I think even Martha Stewart would approve of these. Each one is a surprise as I unfold the paper to reveal what pattern the tiny cuts have made.
She is designing each one of these Christmas cards individually, so each one has her unique stamp of creativity, just like the snowflakes. Each time she gets a break from her online classes, she is at the kitchen table colouring and designing furiously.
I love the fact that she came up with this awesome idea. I saw similar stories on the news recently. In this pandemic gripped holiday season, it is heartwarming to see our children thinking of making others happy.
That’s it for my break, I’ve got to get back to work….four down, lots to go!
