I have to be honest with you. It feels a little bit weird to be blogging about crafts and recipes when there have been so many tragic natural disasters going on over the past couple of weeks.
I have been watching the news coverage about the horrible destruction of hurricane Harvey in Texas and it is absolutely devastating.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, Hurricane Irma is currently rolling through the Caribbean and making it’s way toward Florida.
Up north we are dealing with forest fires. I am located in Northern Washington State near the Canadian border. When I look outside the sky is completely grey with smoke from the forest fires. The sun looks orange as it shines through the smokey air.
There are forest fires right now north of us in Canada, west of us in Montana and south of us in California and Oregon.
It seems like the whole continent is being affected by one natural disaster or another.
In many ways it feels like I am helpless, but I would still like to try to do my part to help others.
If you have been thinking about making a purchase, this is a great time to do it, as your money will be going to a great cause.
