Scrapbooking, Documenting Your Charity Crafting

Blogged under Charity Crafting,My College Craft Club by Tammy on Wednesday 18 April 2012 at 4:11 pm

My college craft club had its last meeting for spring semester Thursday. I have been taking photos for the past year and a half as we have taught members how to do various crafts, like jewelry making, crochet, rubber stamping, and book-making, and we have used many of these skills and other crafting techniques to help those in need. At our last meeting, we worked on putting together a club scrapbook to help document all of our accomplishments:

  • We have made fleece blankets for Save the Chimps (a chimp sanctuary) and Miss Inc. (a women’s and children homeless shelter).
  • Along with blankets for the chimps, we ran a donation drive at the school to help collect many of the other items like food and towels that are also needed at the sanctuary.
  • We have made crochet cotton wash clothes also for Miss Inc. and collected travel soaps to go with them.
  • We have made baby hats and blankets for Healthy Start. Have I missed anything?
  • Oh, yes, and there was the craft fair that we participated in, and we have also been selling our hand-made greeting cards through the college’s print shop (who is nice enough to help us with that).
  • Then there were the animal blankets, both fleece and crocheted, that we made for Dogs and Cats Forever and Domino’s House, which are two local no-kill animal shelters. Shew!

Putting together the scrapbook was fun, but it also was a great reminder of how much we have done!
