Craft Day here in Klamath Falls for OCC

I am in the beginning stages of planning a crafting day for Operation Christmas Child here in K-Falls... and I wanted to take a minute to share the vision and then invite comments and suggestions.

I am hoping to have a crafting time around every 2-3 months where we can gather and make things for our Operation Christmas Shoeboxes and extras to be provided to area packing parties for Operation Christmas Child.

I will supply materials for a variety of projects but may ask for people to bring additional items for use such as scissors or hot glue guns if they have them available. People would also be able to bring items to show or share that they have made so that we may learn from one another. The crafts would vary in difficulty but NONE are going to be ones that require you to be particularly crafty. :) A willing heart is really the only prerequisite.

I am tentatively considering a Saturday perhaps the first in May??? The last Saturday in April might work as well. And would consider morning or afternoon?? If you prefer not to have it on a Saturday please let me know that too.

Ideas I have for possible crafts include:

Jewelry making  (various kinds)
Ribbon twirlers
Decorated notebooks (probably wait til summer or fall when I have discount supplies for this)
hair clips
sock puppets and/or finger puppets
peg dolls
toy tops
egg shakers

You can look at the craft tab or at pinterest for more info on some of the above. 

Please share here in the comments or by email ( lambofhisflock @ gmail . com ) if you are interested in coming and if one of the days would work for you and if so what time.

Also share if you have other ideas for crafts.

I would love to meet with those of you who love Operation Christmas Child... and work together to make items with love and prayer for these precious children.
