Create = Therapy...

Does it feel weird to be moving on with things when there is so much devastation on my doorstep? To me, yes. It is so hard to comprehend. Honestly. I know some people are starting to become desensitized to the sight of a raging river, but it still makes my heart hurt. And my head hurt, just trying to understand this disaster.

But Queenslanders are stoic people. We will bounce back. And bounce back strong. Because we have a wonderful spirit as Australians and it amazes me how something such as craft, paper or otherwise, is being used to help others in need.

This wonderful lady, Sharryn Thomson, has started a blog called "The Rising Waters Flood Appeal for Crafters". There's a call out to all crafters to donate their time and talents to creating projects for the people who have lost everything in this chaos.

Kaisercraft has donated a $100 voucher to be awarded as a ticket draw prize, to a person who gets involved in the appeal. Their challenge is "For every item contributed to the appeal, we'll issue a ticket in the draw for a $100 Kaisercraft gift voucher. However to be eligible for the draw we ask that you use mostly Kaisercraft products."

The Toowoomba Kaisercraft outlet was affected by the flash flooding and they are getting involved too. So please check out this appeal and if you can help, I'm sure it will be most gratefully accepted.

It is my blogging week at Kaisercraft and I wanted to share my projects with you here because as my blog title suggests, creating = therapy. (Thanks for that one LJ!)

These projects are created using the gorgeous new "Love Notes" collection.

Beautiful sentiments and creations Leanne.
I am feeling extremely blessed at the moment to be so lucky.
I am also feeling extremely sad for all our fellow QLDers effected by the floods and like Kim have found it impossible to scrap.
Maybe I need to try for therapy too.x

I find it hard to comprehend and I'm nowhere near the devastation.

LOVE what you've created with this range Leanne.
