I kinda live out in the middle of nowhere, and so getting materials and meeting up with people is difficult at best. So, I volunteer at the local Senior Center. I make a card each week (I have a girlfriend who also makes one, too) and so my style is often controlled by my desire to do something new and different each week, and then, if a particular class member says something like, "I would sure like a kid's birthday card next week for my grandson" and I see nods of approval, that will be the theme of the next week. Last week we did a Big Buckle Card and this week we are doing a File Folder style. I have a teapot card planned for Mother's Day week, encouraging them to make something for a daughter or daughter in law that often goes unnoticed. It makes me feel a sense of satisfaction to help them develop their skills and get better and better at crafting (it's sometimes harder for us older folks).
