As a stay at home Mumma my primary responsibility is with my girl but I feel so utterly useless. Hubby can go and volunteer to fill sand bags...he has a ute and is ready to aid in the clean up at a moments notice. My Dad can drive a truck...an excavator...a bob cat. What can I do? At the moment I feel my cheerful blogging and crafting is superfluous and in bad taste. But on the other hand I can't sit idle. Hence I'm going to keep sewing and crafting but making things for those who have lost everything.
Thousands of families are seeking refuge in emergency shelters around Queensland. I would love to provide each and every child with a small handmade softie to comfort them in this dark time and give them hope that things will get better. Picture walking back into your home and every single item you own is either washed away or ruined by water and mud...... it really is unfathomable!!! Then imagine that through the eyes of a five year old!
If you would like to make something (it doesn't have to be grand!!) please leave a comment letting me know and I'll email you my address so I can deliver it to where it's needed.
The brilliant (I can't emphasise this enough!!!) ladies of the BrisStyle Team have co-ordinated a fantastic Flood Appeal through Etsy and I have pledged some of my wares to raise much needed cash. Please, please, please head over and ogle (no...not just ogle...buy, buy, buy!!) all of the amazing crafty goodness on sale with all proceeds going to the Premier's Flood Appeal.
The amazing Toni of Make It Perfect is also rallying the blogging troops in an online auction of which I am proud to be a part of. I will be auctioning a heap of mon petit poppet fair again with all proceeds going to my fellow statesmen in need.Our thoughts are with you my Queensland friends....and my hands are busy.
