CTMH National Scrapbooking Day Event

Two days ago I shared Close To My Heart’s announcement that they were going to host an all-day FREE Virtual Craft Day to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day.  Since 1994, National Scrapbooking Day has always been the first Saturday in May–making it May 2nd this year.  For many, going to a traditional all-day crop or other crafting event is out of the question.  From basic social distancing to Shelter-in-Place Orders this just isn’t possible.

Crafting During Social Distancing

I Love Crafting Sign

Things are changing rapidly these days.  The world we once knew is definitely not the same.  From day to day, things are changing so much.  Friday my kids’ school was shut down for 3 weeks (and likely longer) and now today they announced starting at midnight we’re ordered to shelter in place, only leaving our homes for essentials like food or medical needs.
