What do you think?

Post by Shutterbug » Sat Dec 09, 2017 7:55 am

I have a friend who lost her husband two months ago. She lives in assistant living and does not have room for a tree.  Not even a tiny one.  I created a tree she can hang on her wall it was made from a sheet of 12 x 12 paper.  She is going to be getting rid of all her scrappy and craft supplies. So with that in mind... Do I decorate it  with stickers, ribbon etc. or send it to her to decorate It?  Thanks for your ideas and feedback.

I would take it and tell her you thought it would be nice to visit and decorate it together.

That is awesome of you! Yes I agree with Linda. She would probably really appreciate it and enjoy a little company.

I love this idea. She lives about 2 1/2 hours away if it take the para transit. We have been planning to try and meet have way. Maybe I will have to just wait. I really love this idea. Thanks.

What do I think? I think you are a pretty amazing friend. That's so kind of you. She's going to love it. I also think it's neat to let her decorate it with the stuff you put together. I'm so sorry she's going through such a difficult time. Maybe she could keep a little of her crafting stuff if you guys could make a few little project kits together? I hate to think of someone having to completely give up her craft stuff.

Thanks you are so sweet.  She has not scrapped for about 6 years. Yes it breaks my heart too. Thanks for the idea.

What a sweet thing to do!!  I agree...let her decorate, unless one of the reasons she is getting rid of her supplies is because it is too difficult for her.

Let her decorate it. Maybe it will spark something in her to get started crafting again.

Does she have any of her scrapbook stuff with her that she can use to decorate it? If not I think it would be nice if you decorated it for her. 
What is she doing with her scrap stuff? Do you know if she has thought of donating it to a school or Girl Scout troop or even to the Assisted living place? They usually have various activities that they can do together right?
