Hey Scrap Bosses!
As you all know, the world has been rocked by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Many towns and cities all over the world have issued quarantine orders or citizens are voluntarily practicing social distancing with the goal of reducing the spread of COVID-19. It is easy to get bogged down with daily reports of this virus and it’s social and economic impact on individuals and our communities.
My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones to this virus, to those who are currently being treated by medical professionals, to those who are on the front lines of this virus, and to everyone who has been adversely affected (i.e. laid off from work, etc.). We are all at risk and it is so important that we continue to stay informed, consume information from reputable sources, and practice social distancing.
While we are in the midst of battling this virus, it can be easy to feel anxious, nervous, and scared. There is so much uncertainty and it is important to take a break from the news and to engage in healthy activities, to relax, and to remain as calm as possible. With that being said, I truly believe that there is power in engaging in creative hobbies – from music, to crafting, drawing, or simply coloring. And it’s also important to connect with others.
So, grab your scrappy supplies and photos, and let’s have an online scrapbooking crop!
