Spreading Cheers In Indonesia

Posted on Dec 14, 2010 in Events and Experiences | 4 comments

Cathy found me through my blog and we have been exchanging emails since then.  She has a son Travis who works for the Peace Corps and has what he calls “little rascals” who follows him around.  When Cathy told me that she is sending paper beads she has made to Travis for the children, I sent her a bag of my own left over paper beads.  Cathy has mastered cutting her beads to precision as evidenced by these necklaces in Christmas colors!

These were made from glittered card stock from Joann’s, and she finds it easier to roll the card stock with the bamboo roller.  And since, Cathy and Tom are Pittsburgh Steeler Fans, she made beads in gold and black.  I think they turned out great!

Travis, wanted to share some photos of the Little Rascals, getting busy making paper bead bracelets and necklaces.

Children does not need much to make them happy, it is nice to see them appreciate the simple things in life.
