Hello! Grace here.
I hope this finds you all well, healthy & happy.
This time last week, my precious Oma (German for Grandmother) was getting ready for her second hip replacement… A surgery she should have had back in May, but due to obvious global circumstances was delayed for months. How grateful we are that she was able to squeeze into this very small window. As you likely know already, the surgery went smoothly! She was back home by Saturday and is in full recovery mode as I type, surrounded by flowers 🙂
In the meantime, we asked you (though it was not mandatory) to post and share online some ‘Hip Hip Hooray’ artwork. And boy, did you!
We will be sharing all of these with Hilma soon!
Not only is it wonderful for someone to receive or see artwork made for them, it also gives us (the creators) purpose!
And on top of that… the collective positive thinking/energy created when you’re crafting with a purpose all adds up… surrounding my Oma last week when she really needed it. It all plays a part.
I found this photo online and it honestly summed up the word pretty perfectly…
There’s a reason why the PTC’s, the SHAC SHAC & the Groovi SHAC all have been so popular this year. Many of us get a lot more out of doing something with a PURPOSE. Whether that be because of accountability, a deadline or simply for someone else’s benefit.
So thank you again for crafting with such purpose for my lovely Oma. I truly believe it played a big part in how smoothly everything went for her 🙂 Literally hundreds of people thinking of her whilst they make something with love… and then her dear granddaughter spending time gathering them all together.
Positive positive positive.
I’m sorry if I missed any! It’s bound to happen. If you’d like me to add your missing artwork, or some new Hip Hip Hooray artwork please email it to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lotsa love, Grace xo
