This year's weather has just been insane here in the States.
Thanks to a heads up from Lupin over on Bugs and Fishes I found out about Craft for Hope's #14 Project: Christmas in Dixie. You can read more about it here. It's a special project to help families hit hard by this year's devastating tornadoes by bring back some holiday cheer in an unexpected way. The project is making handmade stockings! If you wish to participate the deadline is September 23rd, 2011, that's when your stockings need to be at the address posted on their blog.
There are some basic requirements but the key is they should all be handmade. I'm very excited to do as many stockings as I can, even some pet themed ones, before the deadline.
For those who lost everything this year I hope that we can help you start some new traditions that you can rebuild with, our hearts and prayers are still with you all :)
