Last month’s Spark a Smile happened to fall on a very special day – September 11th, Patriot Day. To celebrate our continued freedom, we decided to make red/white/blue postcards to send to the military. Our local school kids will be writing greetings and notes of thanks on the back of the postcards and we’ll send them overseas! We had two new faces – Miss Joy and Sylvia – and they were GREAT!! Joy noted that it was so therapeutic to make cards Here are a few of the amazing designs.
We had quite a few hand-made flags!
We were all able to share the positive and negative shapes of the punched stars – it was fun to see how we used each others’ “trash”!
We had such a fun time creating these cards for the hard-working men and women who bravely serve our country! Will you come join us in October as we make cards for other “fighters”? We’re making PINK cards for breast cancer awareness month. We meet on the second Wednesday of every month (October 9, 2013) at Yang and Horsley Dentistry (325 E. Cottonwood Lane) from 5-7PM. Hope to see you there!
We kicked off our first SAS of the New Year by saying “Thanks” to the employees at the Casa Grande Regional Medical Center. We had another new face: Miss Valerie! She fit right in, doling out silly craft jokes. And, she loves glitter!! We like her already!!
It was a sparkling New Year celebration… lots of sparkly paper! Check out some of our creations below (click here to see the rest!).
