What is a Scrunchie?
A Scrunchie is a elastic hair band covered in fabric.
Although they are more commonly worn in the hair, 
they can also be worn around your wrist or 
ankle as a fashion statement.
 3 Styles:
1. The Regular Scrunchie
2. The Fancy Scrunchie
3. The Fancy Scrunchie With Beads

"Live With Sara" Crochet Discouragement | Posh Pooch Designs

"Live With Sara" 
Dealing With Crochet Discouragement 
With Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs

 Channel At This LINK




Dealing With Crochet Discouragement

I received several messages, emails and comments from People who crocheted a gift for someone, and it wasn't received well.
 The Crocheter/ Giver was so hurt and discouraged.

This has happened to me, and I want to help you through it
.
1. Most people who do not craft, do not understand how
 much thought and emotion goes into deciding what 
we will make for each person.


2. Most people who do not craft, do not under stand 
the time and energy it takes to make something.

3. Most people who do not craft, do not understand 
that we put ourselves, and our heart, 
into everything we make.


4. And Lastly, Because
 we put so much of ourselves into 
everything we make, 
Most people who 
do not craft, 
do not understand how
 much it hurts when
 the item is not 
loved and appreciated.


But.....We Know.

That is why it is so important to encourage each 
other.
If a gift is not received well, make a note not to make 
that person anything.

But... Don't stop giving.
There are many who would love and appreciate it the
 things we make.
Hospitals, Adult and Children's Cancer Charities.
 Rescue Centers and Homeless Rescues.
Many, Many Causes and Charities.
