The 5th Christmas Love Campaign starts tomorrow!
The FIFTH one! WOW! I am so SUPER excited! I have to admit, as a sat in a doctors office again this week it was really hard to find much excitement in much of anything and then I had a perfect stranger come up to me and tell me that she recognized me and that she liked my writing and my work, which was cool. But then she went on to say how much she really liked the “that Christmas Love thing’ that is do every year. That made my day and made me realize how important this campaign is. It and WE ALL can make a difference!  And with that I am SO proud to say that our Christmas Love Campaign starting tomorrow, November 1, is going to be out of this world FANTASTIC!!!

So, What is The Christmas Love Campaign?

The 'CLC' is a very dear event that I started five years ago shortly after losing my father to cancer.  My dad had lived a life of always doing kind things to ANYONE & EVERYONE. When he passed away suddenly I didn't know what I could do to continue spreading his kindness and love that he showed and gave everyone.. One day at a scrapbooking crop I noticed how kind scrap bookers can be to each other even though most of the time they are total strangers. I noticed that even happens on the internet. Crafters reaching out to other crafters with words of encouragement in hard times and in good times. After seeing this, I approached The Canadian Scrapbooker in the Fall of 2009 and I asked Katharina Doyle and Jackie Ludlage if I could write an article for their magazine on a topic that was very important to me, entitled 'Scrap Matters'. It talked about the awesome power of arts, crafts, and scrapbooking and I asked people how they brightened other peoples day by being creative? I know my Dad, and my Mom would have loved this!

'Simple Acts of Creative Kindness is an AWESOME TOOL!'

  This is the 5th Annual Christmas Love Campaign.
