Flowers to start a mission

I’ve been thinking a lot of how I want A Little Hut to evolve and grow. Part of that includes what my mission is – sharing my creativity with you and for you to share yours with others. As I said years ago, on the old blog, I still believe that creativity fills the heart — it truly does! So, why don’t we spread it even further?

From now part of A Little Hut proceeds will be donated to Donors Choose, an organization that provides public school teachers with materials for their classes, needs that they can’t meet otherwise. Initially, I will be donating to art and music projects.

Taking this step makes me so happy! What I do and your support of my work will allow teachers to continue to spread the joy of making art. Yay! I hope that you can join me in this cause. I’ll report once a quarter on what we’ve accomplished together. I can’t wait to get started!

We can start with the Floral Lattice Collection. It’s based off a sketch that I drew when it was the end of the day and I just needed to draw something to relax. It’s so interesting how some of my favorite work happens when I’m not overthinking it.

I like the idea of making these gift sets so that you can share what you make with your favorite people. We shouldn’t keep it all to ourselves, right? Which makes this more of a fitting project to start with A Little Hut’s latest mission. Don’t you think?

Happy Monday everyone!

    What a great thing! I have just retired from teaching high school special ed, about 6 years ago Donors Choose provided binders for my students to create portfolios in which to store their personal information and a pictorial resume of their skills to share with potential employers after graduation. Once I was able to demonstrate to the administration how these worked, the school had no problem continuing the purchase for future students. This is a great way to support teachers and students! Thank you.

    what a great idea. I know quite a few teachers and my granddaughter just became a teacher. They are always having to buy almost all of their supplies with their own money. Even with stores donating supplies and having a store here that keeps those supplies and give the teachers a special day to come and get the supplies they need. It is never enough and they still pay so much out their pocket. Teacher don’t get paid enough to do that. Bless you heart for this effort of yours.

      Thank you so much Donna! Yes, I have friends that are teachers and I guess that’s where the idea got started. Hopefully we can all make a great contribution!
