Welcome to Merry Make.Do.! This is our first time offering craft kits and tutorials so you can Make.Do. at home. Now you can participate in our mission of creativity, connection, and compassion from anywhere!
This tutorial jumps right in because we forgot to record an Ugly Christmas Sweater introduction. So grab a bundle of green yarn and get ready to make some pom poms!
Coming to a class at Make.Do. is not just about the skill of creativity… it’s also about all the things the creative process itself has to offer. Since we can’t have these conversation in-person at the studio, let us share this createfull benediction instead…
Ugh. Sometimes life is extra heavy and hard. It can be difficult to find the light at the end of the tunnel when today feels like nothing but darkness.
May crafting your ugly Christmas sweater be a practice in choosing joy. Delight in the colors, the textures, the sparkle. Set worry aside as you reconnect with child-like wonder. Be outlandish. Be wild. Let your imagination get the best of you in the best of ways!
And when you feel the heaviness return, when the darkness creeps back, may your sweater be a reminder that you don’t have to wait until you get to the end of the tunnel to see the Light joy brings.
Of course, we miss getting to chat with you in the studio and admire your work. We want to see what you made. Be sure to tag Make.Do. if you share it on social media so we can brag on you.
Welcome! Make.Do. is a nonprofit in Searcy, Arkansas. We use creativity as a way to connect with community.
