pAST COMMUNITY CELEBRATIONS!

We had a super fun two days of Community letter writing (and making)

Scientific findings link gratitude to increased optimism, stress reduction and a better night’s sleep.  Writing a note by hand has cognitive benefits, as well.  As the age of email, texting and tweeting has taken over, many have proclaimed that the art of writing letters is about to disappear forever.  We gathered together (families and individuals) and focused on slowing down, being grateful and using our unique individuality to craft pieces of art to share with loved ones and friends afar!

Check out this article about the art of letter writing and this TED talk by Lakshmi Pratury about the lost art of letter writing

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate our one year anniversary at our Roots + Wings Creative Campus building.  We had an amazing day of hands on making!
