Tea Rose Shawl Crochet Pattern

Believe it or not, but a few weeks ago I realized I had never crocheted a shawl before!

It's extremely warm and cozy, and I can't wait to wear it this coming winter!

1920's Snowflake Cloche Hat Crochet Pattern

I've always believed that we are all like snowflakes, different in our own unique and beautiful way!

Sadly I know most people don't realize just how special they are, due to horrible circumstances such as bullying, poverty, slavery or abuse. 
However, whether they feel lonely, unloved or unintelligent doesn't mean they are any less valuable. Every person is precious, and should be treated accordingly. 

As Einstein once said, "The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything." Yes, I agree it's extremely hard to be brave enough to stand up against unfair treatment of another human being, which is why I love how Audrey Hepburn put it.. "As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."
After all, a true act of kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of ever getting anything in return...
