I learned more than paper crafting at 4-H though, we did all kinds of crafting. Each month my aunt had a different project ready for us to make. She wanted us to make things throughout the year so we had projects to take to the fair. We also did fund-raising and volunteering to help give back to the community.
This year my 4-H involvement has gone full-circle. A couple of months ago I was asked to give a demonstration at a local 4-H meeting. I taught the girls how to make greeting cards and gave them some time to play with all the supplies I brought. It was fun watching them create just as I had done many years ago :)
And today I will be judging the historian book category at our county fair. I was proud that they thought of me and thought I would do a good job at this task :) I am fortunate to be able to give back to the organization that gave me so much :)
How did you get started crafting? Have you been able to give back to those that helped you along the way? It really is a great feeling :)
