It is that time of the year again where a group of talented crafters get together to participate in the Blog Hop Christmas Banners for Special Needs Kids. We all make a banner and send it off to be displayed in hospitals for Children in the USA.
This is my second year of taking part and WOW we have had to extend our hop from 2 to 3 days as there were so many crafters wanting to take part. Below is a little bit about the Hop.
"In the eyes of children, we find the joy of Christmas. In their hearts, we find its meaning."
As joyous as Christmas is for most families, for some, their holidays are filled with worry, medical treatments and tests, and pain -- for their child must be hospitalized or she or he needs long-term care rather than being home with their families.
For these kids, Santa doesn't slip down a chimney but rather, often comes in the guise of community volunteers who help make the season bright.
This is the second Christmas season that our own band of dedicated and loving paper crafters have come together to make Holiday banners for children who are too sick to be home for the holidays. Welcome to the Christmas Banners for Special Needs Kids blog hop!
I am especially pleased that this year, not only have our numbers of generous crafters swelled so our Hop is over three full days, but also, that we have partnered with another great cause and recipient of our banners!
By teaming up with Madison Womack's I FEEL THE LOVE PROJECT, the banners our crafters have handmade will be going to the hospitalized children at Children's Hospital Central California!
First, let me show you the banner I made for today's post. I'll be sending this to Madison and the children at CHCC who are benefiting from the I Feel the Love project in December:
For my banner I have used the adorable Toread Decoupage pack from Crafter's Companion. The pennants I bought which I have stamped holly and snowflakes on. I have added glitter to the little images and threaded with dark green ribbon.
Thank you for stopping by Today
