Assisted Living Valentine Fun


Hello Saturday Friends!

This past week I had the privilege of making Valentine projects with some wonderful older folks at a local assisted living facility.

As always with any new and different experience, I was nervous and wanted to back right out...but I had no reason to fear.  The men and women (12 of them) were all so sweet and loving.  My friend Jalayne and I spent a few hours with them and we all had a blast.  And they were so very appreciative, which was nice.

These were the two cards I helped them assemble.  I wasn't sure what type of skill level we might encounter, so I pretty much made all the parts and pieces to the point where they could just peel off a sticker backing and add the pieces to the cards.  They loved it.  And what I loved was watching some of them create their own design.  Creativity is for all ages!!!!

Was all the prep work time consuming?  You bet it was.  Was it worth it?  A thousand times over!  And we are going back next month by special request.  I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity!

I'll see you again tomorrow for more Valentine fun!

Susie
