First of all, it's good to be back! It has been 4 years since I last posted. I can't say that things have slowed down any, but I have decided that just isn't going to happen! I will find a way to blog regularly. It is always a fun thing when I do.
The biggest reason I decided to re-open my blog is because I have an awesome project in the works and I am ready to announce it! October is Sensory Processing Disorder Awareness Month. Most of us know someone who is affected by SPD. I will go into more about what SPD is tomorrow, and we will have guest bloggers throughout the week who will tell their stories. But today I will tell you my plan. Starting Wednesday, October 16th, my weighted vest pattern will be on sale at Craftsy for $5. All of the earnings from this sale will go to SPD Foundation. SPD Foundation is the leader in advocacy and research for SPD.
But wait! That's not all! I am going to have my first ever Sew-Along! The Sew-Along will go from Oct 21st-25th. If this pattern seems intimidating to you, this is the perfect time to try it. I would like to encourage everyone who participates in the Sew-Along to find a child who needs a weighted vest and donate it to them. It can be your child, niece, nephew, friend's child, neighbor, etc. You can also donate to your local school district or therapy center. I guarantee you will quickly find someone who needs it. I would love it if together we could donate 100 vests! I am going to keep a count through November, so if the week of the Sew-Along is too busy, that's okay!
Let's make a big difference together!
