Craft donations can seem daunting to the novice crafter. Here is a simple idea that is super cute and easy to make. Book marks are a new and exciting addition to our Annual Craft Challenge. There is something about escaping into a book that brings relief from the stress of the real world.
Stacey has sent us 33 of these lovingly made bookmarks, we are looking forward to gifting these as part of our Crisis Care bags.
Thank you Stacey, these are delightful!
So this is a big thank you & virtual hug to everyone that has contributed in some small way to the overall success of Angels for the Forgotten and our Annual Craft Challenge.
Turning your crafty thoughts into action is appreciated more than you will ever know.

Marie Campbell from WA is quite new to the wonderful world of the Annual Angels for the Forgotten Craft Challenge, but she is certainly off and racing! We were thrilled to receive 7 hand crafted beanies from Marie in April and just wanted to say a big THANK YOU!
We are firm believers in the old adage 'Many hand make light work'. Thank you for taking the time to create the beanies for children. They will be so much warmer this winter with beanies to warm them!
GREAT WORK MARIE!

Myshelle aka Mamma that Makes has been so busy during this year's Annual Craft Challenge. She has been whipping up a crafty variety of items to donate to charity. Myshelle has even made these lovely taggie softie animals from her own designs!
Myshelle has also had some help from her older daughters in researching and designing some cards. The idea of kids helping kids is just awesome! Please pass on our thanks to the girls!
Thanks so much Myshelle!
