Some of you may know that I love to papercraft in my spare time. During the course of last year I discovered Jennifer McGuire's YouTube channel and blog and became an avid follower. Her videos are so clear for newbies, her tips are easy to implement and bring great results, even for those just testing the waters.
During the course of November 2015, she challenged the community to participate in her Share Handmade Kindness campaign. Being that November is one of the busiest months for me and TG Bears and anything cardmaking still needed my undivided attention and longer time than the average person, I was not able to participate. But I decided that one thing I could do was make a teddy bear and you know that the ones at TG Bears meet the "handmade" requirement of Jennifer's campaign. And so Jennifer Bear came into being and was entrusted to USPS as a surprise.
I do think the surprise was successful, given Jennifer's Instagram post
Oh my heart! A sweet blog reader named Monica sent me this bear as a surprise! It has my logo on the belly and says "share handmade kindness" on the paw. How cute is that?! My kids are in love so I am sharing it quite a bit. ? Such a sweet gift! And it turns out Monica does a lot of good things and shares lots of kindness with her bears. I love it. @tgbears (www.tgbears.com) ❤️
