Nothing gets a crafter more excited than going to a supply store and seeing miles of material…full of color, prints and patterns and finding all kinds of things to decorate your project with from buttons, thread, appliques, zippers, feathers, sequins, ribbon or rhinestones to jazz up your project. Friends and family get all excited when they see projects coming out of your creativity…this inspires them to say…sew me something. That is what we do at Its Sew Made. Click the link and take a peek. You might have to click through the display pictures for a few rotations before you can see all of the completed projects…as for some reason it repeats the beginning pictures three or four times.

Well, it seems as though a hobby of mine and some friends has turned into a labor of love. We started making some gifts and accessories at the sewing machine for an upcoming craft show and it has turned into something over and above; as people have been viewing our crafts and then…requesting things of their own.

In America we take so many things for granted. If we get sick, we go to the pharmacy and pick up over the counter medication that can help us get well. Other times, we go to the doctor and get prescription medicine to help us get well from an infection or sickness. We are blessed. We have instant access to information to help keep ourselves well.
The best thing is that we have been taught that washing our hands well with soap can help to keep us healthy. We have access to soap and water on a regular basis. Not everyone is so lucky. What they don’t know and don’t have access to can harm them or kill them. Soap and water save lives and there is a Global Soap Project that you may not be aware of to get soap into the hands of people who are in need of it, to stay well. To continue click here.

Let’s be honest, most children who are told that they must wear glasses will often not be thrilled with the idea of having to wear eyeglasses. For many children, it is the idea that others will make fun of them or, cause them to be viewed as being different from other children their own age. Being bullied because you are visually impaired and have to wear glasses can cause a child to refuse to wear them, out of fear of being made fun of.
No one want to be made to feel self conscious about themselves, especially at certain ages when it is most important to fit in with their peers. We’ve come along way since the days of having a choice between wearing heavy black plastic frames or wire frames that were basically your only choices.
Still, everyone likes to look their best and there are many fashion frames from which someone can choose to fit the shape of their face and their sense of style. On the other hand, if you are looking to change things up so that you don’t get bored with a certain look once you’ve purchased your eyeglass frames; there wasn’t much you could do except buy multiple sets of glasses…until now.

Ok, I am going to rant a bit for a minute. Twice this week the news has hit us with two terrible stories about families that self-destructed through murder-suicide. Two families that were destroyed. One family in particular left a suicide note allegedly saying that the reason they were dead was because both the husband and the wife lost their jobs…were in debt…and were rejected by their employers. The other family’s reasons have not yet been announced. The family members allegedly say that there was no clues to this tragedy. What i want to know is…can we stop families from hurting the ones that they love? Yes we can, encourage them to seek help: http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ Each time something like this happens…those who were lost leave behind friends, family members, neighbors, acquaintances and community members who are hurt, confused and saddened. We have to take care of each other and learn to be more in tune with those around us. (more…)
