As I'm sure you've already guessed, we are unable to attend events right now because they have all been cancelled. When it was just a few weeks that we would be out of work, we thought, hmmm maybe we can catch up on some house projects we've been wanting to do. This could be a nice change of pace since we typically work every weekend at farmer's markets or festivals year round. That line of thinking did NOT last long at all. After about three days of house-projects and planting a spring garden, we were ready to get back to work! We miss our events, we miss leaving our house, and most of all, we miss interacting with all of you on a weekly basis! With that said, this whole thing is out of our control, and we are practicing social-distancing whether we like it or not. Currently, our events have been cancelled through the Shrimp Festival which was supposed to be held the first week of May. As we are made aware of schedule changes we will relay them to all of you.
On a brighter note, earlier this month, we took all of your donations for the towel drive we hosted down to the Jax Humane Society. With your help we were able to donate 50 towels, and we matched your generous giving by supplying the shelter dogs with 50 Lucy Lou's collars. We are so thankful for your assistance in our first "Live to Give" project. You guys rock!
We've been prepping for our next project, and although it isn't specifically related to pets, we feel led to share our skills in a different way. A friend of mine, who is also a sewer, recently shared that hospitals are running out of masks, and asking for people who know how to sew to make them with fabric, flannel, and elastic. With all of the spare time we have now, we thought this was the perfect way to help. We have ample fabric to assist, but we haven't been able to find very much 1/8-1/2 inch flat elastic. If any of you have any and are willing to donate it or would like to make some masks yourself, I will provide the fabric and instructions for you to sew them at your own house!
Lastly, although we don't know what the future holds, we do know who holds our future. We believe that as uncertain as things may be, God has a plan in all of this. We want you all to know that we think of you as our extended family, and we hope to see you in the very near future. In the mean time, you are in our thoughts and prayers, and we are here if you need anything!
Stay Healthy <3
