FREE Paper Pumpkin Kit In Memory of Sister Corda

Today is Sister Corda’s heavenly birthday. If you’ve been following my blog for awhile you’ve heard about Sister Corda! She was an amazing woman in so many ways! At 90 years old she was my oldest “Paper Pumpkin Player”, still made her delicious homemade candy to give to others, volunteered each week at the homeless shelter, helped out in my Pre-K classroom, walked daily, and was completely devoted to her faith. She taught for many years and made a difference in so many lives! If you couldn’t remember something, you’d ask Sister Corda…she had a mind like a steel trap! She was truly a blessing and had such an impact on me and my family!

I had the pleasure of introducing Sister Corda to card making. I still remember the excitement and joy on her face when she made her first card. She continued to have just as much joy with each and every card she made. She donated many of her cards to the nuns at the convent so they could share them with others. She followed my blog daily (and would have something to say if I missed a day or two).  Often she would be waiting in my classroom in the morning with a list of items she needed or to show me something she created. I keep her photo in my craft room so we can still create together. She continues to influence my life and makes me strive to be the best person I can be.

Sister Corda loved Paper Pumpkin and enjoyed getting together each month to put our kits together. Her great niece, Liz Hott, reached out and wanted to donate a Paper Pumpkin kit in her aunt’s memory.  What a sweet and generous offer to honor Sister Corda and her love of creating and sharing kindness!
