The recently released book “Be So Caring – A Collection of Thoughtful Gifts for the Friends We Know and Those We Have Yet to Meet” has been a sweeping success. In this age of social distancing, staying home, and a new normal being implemented the world may feel a little impersonal and a bit cold.
We can help change that one person at a time with how we interact with one another. Kindness, caring, thoughtfulness, and empathy are key. Celebrations of events such as birthdays, births of a new baby, weddings, anniversaries, or just a gift out of the kindness of your heart. Personally made gifts take thought, consideration, and time as well as talent and ingenuity. These handmade gifts mean so much more than just running by a big retailer and randomly grabbing an item last minute.
It has long been said that “it’s the thought that counts” – this really is the truth. Thoughts ARE things. Intention is a tangible vibration. When you create something with love and give it with pure intent to create happiness and joy, it’s felt by the receiver.
Intent and appreciation are powerful. They can change a mood, uplift, and even remind that person that they are thought about every time they wear or use your gift.
I host a livestreaming podcast weekdays on my YouTube Channel called Create Share Inspire Podcast. You can join the audience LIVE and even ask me questions LIVE! I often do a show and tell or quick demo and I always interact with the live audience. It is a lot of fun!
You can browse through over 700 previously recorded episodes HERE: Create Share Inspire Podcast Playlist . Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get reminders when the next episode airs LIVE. I also created a private Facebook group called Create Share Inspire to allow my audience to continue the podcast party throughout the rest of the day. It is a wonderful and safe place to share your photos of finished projects in my knitting or crochet patterns or yarns, and to see what others are making, too.
I would also like to invite you to join this private group Create. Share. Inspire on Facebook where you can interact with me as well as many other members who have a love of knitting and crochet just like you!
