April is National Volunteer Month and there is no shortage of volunteer opportunities in Katy, Texas! Just look around you… schools, churches, libraries, museums, hospitals… all need volunteers.
A “volunteer” is defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as “a person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task.” Being a volunteer will improve your life, as well as the lives of others.
Spend some time giving of yourself in April and all year round: VOLUNTEER!
To celebrate an early 2012 park opening, the SeaWorld San Antonio team and its Animal Ambassadors are hitting the road to invite folks across Texas to visit. Once again, LaCenterra has been selected as stop on the tour – February 9!
Bring the kids (if you have them) or be prepared to be a kid at heart. Join the fun and learn a little something about the amazing animals while you’re at it. Plus, register to win tickets to SeaWorld San Antonio! (You must be present to win.)
Mom Note: As the health and safety of the SeaWorld Animal Ambassadors is priority one, the program will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. and last approximately 30 minutes.
One of Carina’s favorite things to do is color, and it will be nice to have this roll ready to go in my baby bag when we go out. When Carina opened it and saw the crayon surprise, she had a huge smile on her face!
I followed Skip to my Lou‘s instructions carefully, but here’s what I did:
You need three pieces of wool felt 6″ X 16 1/2 (pocket), 5″ X 16 1/2″ (outside), 5″ x 16 1/2″ (inside).
Take the 6 X 16 1/2 piece (pocket) and fold it in half length ways.
Lay it on top of the 5″ X 16 1/2 (inside) piece.
Starting over 1 1/4″ from the edge, stitch from top to the bottom on the pocket piece. Then continuing stitching every 1″. Back stitch at the top of each stitching line to reinforce.
You will end with 1 1/4″ on the other side and 15 crayon pockets.
Place the pocket piece that you just sewed on top of your outside piece (wrong sides together). Gently stretch and pin to keep it all in place.
On the right edge at the middle insert a 30″ piece of ribbon folded in half. Insert the folded end about 1/2 an inch.
Sew all the way around the outside 1/4″ in from the edge.
Dress up the edge using pinking shears – be careful when you come to the ribbon – you will have to do each side separately.
