Pandemic Resources

These resources were made available as a first response to Lockdown when it seemed like sheltering from a blizzard. Hunkering down and waiting for it to blow over.Thy were adapted as the ongoing situation seemed to become more like a mini ice age.

I'm going to keep them update, just in case things get worse again this winter, and because I think crafts are a great way to get together with friends and do something that helps build community with some crafting, and game playing - low tech!

 Eventually, I'll need to work out a way to make this sustainable in the long term, but until then please enjoy this free gift!
