This week I had a zoom chat with my friends about the new OCC year starting. We have made some plans to hopefully make this year a little more smooth going than last year. 🙂 Like deciding on trying to stick to the monthly gift list most of the time. We don’t have to stick to it all the time. Because if you see something that you think would be good to go in a box sometimes you have to just get it then.
We also are going to sort the stuff we collect over the year differently. Instead of having a ton of different boxes and then sorting them later, we decided on having three big storage boxes instead. One for each age group. Each one of us will have one container at our house. When we go to fill the boxes for a age we just need that one storage container.
We also hope to work on a least one thing at a time during our get togethers. We have some ideas like:
Turning little tins into fun games or first aid kits, doing car tracks for the boys getting hot wheels, and making cloth dolls for some of the girls. I also hope to make sewing kits, hygiene bags, and school kits later in this year. One of my friends is going to make cards for all the boxes as well. So we are hoping to take a picture together with maybe the cats Sunny, Acadia, and Albus to go with the cards. We will have to wait and see. Albus likes to hide under my bed when people come over. Because of this my friend teases that he is just a myth. 🙂
We hope to get together next month for the first time this year and start on making some fun stuff.
