Spring Challenge Wrap-Up

The two weeks are over and it’s time to wrap up the COVID-19 Spring Challenge. I hope you all had a fun time! Quarantine isn’t over yet, though, so I hope you’ll continue to challenge yourself and use this time for good! If you want to take another look at my list of ideas, click on the link above.

For those of you who participated in the challenge, THANK YOU! I really enjoyed hearing from you and seeing all the pictures! I hope you had as much fun as I did.

How to Enter Info

Those of you who participated in the challenge can tell me what you completed and how many symbols you filled here. It shouldn’t take long, and I’ll find out the winner from there. I’m so excited to send off the prize! (submissions must be entered by Friday, April 10th 2020)

Once you’ve submitted that info, sit back and relax while I share what we’ve all been doing for the challenge!

Pictures from Readers

Thanks to Moriah and Hadassah for the photos! If anyone else didn’t get a chance to send their pictures in, don’t worry; I can post those on Saturday when I announce the winner of the challenge.

My Photos

I wasn’t too proactive with photography, but here are the food pictures I was talking about from the last two weeks!πŸ˜‚

It’s been so nice out lately, and I’ve loved getting outdoors and just slowly enjoying life. I’m hoping to sew some masks over the next month and work on service-focused projects as well.

I can’t wait to hear about what you all did for the challenge!

Stay healthy!

    1. We used white chocolate melting wafers for the petals and icing for the middles. We melted the white chocolate, dipped the backs of plastic spoons in it, and then let it set.


  1. Yes! I vote for the podcast! Thanks for posting my pictures! This challenge has really helped me stay productive and creative! Through this challenge, I have connected with old friends through letters, explored writing and crafting more, and spent more time in God’s Word! Thank you for giving me stuff to do!

    1. I am so happy that you had a good time!! Thank you so much for being so excited about this challenge and being such a good participant. ❀️


  2. Rachel, you should totally do a podcast!!!! I think that would be so awesome!!! It’s good that you have been keeping yourself busy and by the way, that food looks so good! πŸ˜€ Although the “shelter in place” has been kind of weird (you know, not being able to go out), it has given me a chance to do things I normally cannot do. And now with being on Spring break, I have more time to do more stuff!


    1. Thank you, Heaven!! ❀ Yeah, quarantine is strange, but I think I’ve needed this break. Of course, I don’t like the circumstances that brought about the rest, but I’m thankful for this time to slow down.
