It's sorta like Girl Scouts..for big kids!
For the past year and a half, I have been posting on the forums at MaryJanes Farm and have met the most amazing women who are actually trying to make the world a better place on a daily basis. So this year, it has become possible for us to have our own chapter (or group) as a computer group instead of having to have meetings in person. Our group is called Bees Without Borders because most of us are seamstresses who get our thrills with sewing and crafting. The without borders part is because most of us do not live near one another, yet we still "meet" regularly online to discuss projects, ideas and issues. Great for a person like me who works all of the time and has little time for a formal group.
The coolest part, in my immature opinion!, is that we get to earn badges for different activities and projects that we complete. Now, for me, this is the best thing of all because I never got to be in the Girl Scouts when I was a kid, even though I was desperate to join! Long, sad, really sappy story about that...but I am over it finally! (Ha, not really!)
So, the one badge is for my group and the other one is for the larger group at MaryJanes Farm. We get to embellish them any way we want and then put them on our denim jackets. How cool is that? I know people will look sideways at me and say, "Ok, whatever," but this is just another time that we get to feel young, involved and vital again. Not bad.
I did not do anything to my badges, yet, but when I do, I'll post them.
