The Stratford (Retirement Home in High Point, NC) invited me to work with residents creating Valentine’s Day Cards. All materials were brought to the facility and just creativity was required.

Many beautiful cards were made for family members using colored papers, special cutting tools, ribbons, button, flowers and various stickers.

After leaving The Stratford, I learned a few craft making techniques from the residents. One of their staff members even made a card for her daughter.

The facility is just beautiful with its open atrium, bright light and many windows to view the geese meandering through their gardens.

The Stratford was a pleasure and we hope to craft again in the future making cards for the community, our soldiers and loved ones. It was even mentioned, the activity bus will bring residents to Just a Cloud Away, Inc. ™ Journals, Celebrate Mother Earth event April 16th for some outdoor fun.

The art of papercrafting incorporates a few supplies with mementoes of loved ones. At the first Love Memorial™ Workshop sponsored by Just a Cloud Away, Inc. ™ Journal, the community brought pictures of their loved ones, infants, and pets that have passed on.  The participants expressed their gratitude to have the opportunity to remember and create keepsakes with their own hands. Various vendors provided snacks, drinks, and music; and Rich Brenner helped out at the microphone.

Local businesses will surprise us each month with goodies, music or other. Angela Howard of Take Shape for Life-Fast Weight Loss and Long Term Health, has lost 210 pounds and serves up a fantastic glass of lemonade.

Pressed flowers will also be available.

Please email Diana@justacloudaway.com if you are interested in attending a casual papercrafting workshop on a monthly basis.  Our next workshop will be on Friday, December 3rd, at the Emerald Event Center (2000 East Wendover Avenue) from 5-11 PM.   Just a Cloud Away, Inc.™ Journal will sponsor the workshop by supplying scrapbook papers, stickers, cutters, stamps, adhesives, and more.
