I am absolutely thrilled to be sharing with you a very dear project of mine.
My friend Maria is a very sweet 11 years girl who is very artistic and loves to create things. She has an infections smile and she loves to carefully observe things and people around her.
On numerous occasions I have been gifted unique items from her creations to hang on the walls or on me 🙂 and I have been thrilled to display them in full view and to hear “Oh My”s from many people I knew.
She has been wanting to raise some money to finance a creation summer camp this year and so we have put our heads together and started this ‘Icecream’ (secret code name 😉 ) project. She is going to work on a bunch of beautifying items: necklaces to begin with…can’t wait to see them! and we are going to sell them in order to raise money for the camp.
I really love her initiative, in a world where most of the young kids prefer to play and be carefree – me included obviously, as I remember only wanting to play and goof around when I was her age, she wants to see the results of her work and get more skills and know-how for something she loves to do.
I find it very important to have hobbies and to be able to nurture them and , why not, turn them later into a profession.
So without further ado let’s get started.
The Girls 🙂
P.S. All resemblance of the picture with Maria is 100% intended, but I did not want to share her image on the internet. Many thanks!!!
