Craftstory: Cork Critters
Craft projects, as we all know, take time and talent to accomplish.
Some people have the impression that making crafts necessitates a big budget to make the outcome more attractive. Some think that one needs a lot of practice just to make something that of value. Others think that you must have a lot of passion or a cause to create the "heart"-work.
One young hobbyist didn't need to spend a lot to make her projects. She just grabbed what was available at their home to make her critters.
The young crafter Yanna's family would regularly have thanksgiving prayers at their home and one of the symbols of celebration is a bottle of wine which the whole family would share. Seeing all the cork from the bottle, Yanna had an idea to make some Cork Critters.
For safety, Yanna's mom would help her cut the cork but everything else was Yanna's design.

"...the work of their hands brings them reward."
- Proverbs 12:14
