For a Good Cause!

I just shipped off 30 hand-made cards to my office in Michigan for their fund-raiser/craft sale at the American Cancer Society Relay for Life this Fri and Sat in Hastings, MI. I am scheduled to walk for an hour on Friday, and am having walkers' remorse with the weather! But it is all for a good cause. I also made five 12 x 12 scrapbook layouts for cancer survivors and families who don't have time to scrap. All they have to do is add pictures and journal. Everything else is done-photo mats, embellishments, etc. I spent a lot of time to make them nice. I would also have to guesstimate I spent at least 30 hours on the cards. Hope they will help raise some $$. We will also have bracelets for sale and baked goods. Our little staff of 30 makes some great efforts for philanthropy! Here is our team link

Speaking of shipping, who doesn't love their UPS man- bringer of treasures?! Besides, has anyone ever seen an ugly UPS man? I just got the next big Memory-Works order from that everyone has been clamoring for. I've been getting calls and texts, and it's barely been a week! Anyway, all the goodies for creating are here, and now I've got to deliver them and make some happy campers.

I received some gorgeous Lola papers from the Love, Elsie line for Crafts, Etc. I cannot wait to use them. Elsie has a challenge on her blog for "24 things I want to do before I am 25." I would have to edit the age a little (a lot), but the prizes are worth it! She has the best products!

I also got some fabulous vintage bathing beauty clip art from Paula's Kit Club, which I am in and highly recommend- and I don't even have my first kit yet! She's so busy, my membership doesn't start until Oct. Check it out:

Once again, so many things to make; so little time....sounds like art/collage/scrapping could run in the family....a 'shout out' and Happy Birthday tomorrow to my great-niece Abigail Spradlin whose 4H rabbit care poster made champion at her local county fair (Johnson County) and will be going to the Indiana State Fair! Tres magnifique! I'll post a photo if I get one from her dad Terry, my nephew. He's the brainchild/politico of the family-formerly working for the Dept of Ed and now employed at his dear Indiana University.
