Josephine's Children making crafts...

Josephine has shared some photos of the children making and using the craft items that you all so graciously donated and sent to them. We have had a difficult time getting these photos because Josephine's computer has not been working correctly.  I am so happy to finally be able to share photos of the children as they work on their crafts...

for these children..

 so many wonderful crafting items
for them to use and enjoy..

 As the holidays approach and this season of giving begins,.... 
I just want to thank you all again for your incredible generosity and caring towards these beautiful children.  Their lives have been enriched and touched by your love and thoughtful donations.
On their behalf I want to say how very much that your gifts have been appreciated.  You guys totally rocked this project to  unprecedented expectations ---
 thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Such a happy bunch of children having fun times with craft materials, hope their creative juices flow and they make lots more fabulous items to treasure.

Thanks for the photos of Josephine's Children. It's so gratifying seeing their creations. I spotted some embroidery floss on a girl's lap and I'm not sure it was my donation but I sent a big bag of it. I'm sure they will be busy for a long time with creating some fun crafts.
Thanks again Vicki for your courage in saying yes to this big challenge. You have a generous heart.
Hugs,
JB

Isn't this wonderful. I am so glad that they are enjoying the gifts.

Vicki I had to come by and thank you for the beautiful surprise of a Christmas card I just received in the mail. Your personal words inside are dear to my heart. Thank you precious friend. I will be sending you one too.

I am stepping away from blogging for a season in the new year. But you will still find me on Instagram. Love you xx Kerrie
