After the holidays, we have time to relax and tackle some necessary projects around the house. DD2 has gone through her closet and removed the clothing and shoes that she no longer wears. And what to do with perfectly good clothing? The New Beginnings Center takes donations. The New Beginnings Center is a residential, coeducational group care facility licensed to serve children with behavioral, emotional and educational problems. There are currently 17 girls staying there. Some are there because their families cannot provide proper care. The youngest is 12. Oh, how I wish we could afford to bring them bags of brand new clothes...instead, the best we can do is donate these bags of gently used items. Perhaps, they are having just a little fun going through and trying on the shirts, jeans, sweatpants and pajamas that we left there this afternoon.
Greetings. My name is Natalie. Scott and I have been married for 36 years and we have two beautiful daughters. They have both finished college and moved away to follow their dreams. We have two faithful kitties, Lucy & Jasmine. I just retired after my 38th year teaching Family & Consumer Science at our Public High School. I have been creating things since I was a little girl. I hope you have time to stop into my Etsy shops to see how I spend my leisure time. Thank you for your visit. Be sure to say Hello. I love to read your comments.
