I have a few projects I'd like to share but video taping them is becoming a pain in the butt. I do not like that little flip cam - I do much better with my phone cam. At any rate I wanted to wish you a joyous, love filled, blessed holiday season! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! Whatever you celebrate I hope it is everything you want it to be :)
So I went to Michaels on Thanksgiving and bought a bunch of the jetmax cubes - then I spent 3 days in my craft room redoing it - again. I know, I know... it's an illness. But I thought you would enjoy a tour so here it is!
Hubby is a restoration tech - the company he works for handles Floods, Fire, Mold, structural damage, etc. He comes home from time to time and tells me about this job or that job. He came home a few days ago telling me that he has a very tough job that is troubling him.
Last weekend, a family in Crofton Maryland named Neale (only info I can release) lost their home in a fire. When they (hubby and crew) got to the basement he discovered a large craft area. Many many scrapbooks. Some they were able to salvage in hopes of cleaning them up for the family. Much of the items were destroyed.
The mom in the family lost her mother recently and 2 of her brothers in 2011. They lost 2 cats in the fire and Allen (hubby) couldn't help but feel horribly for the family. He asked me if I could get some of my 'crafty friends' to donate supplies to the lady so she can rebuild her craft area. I put a shout out on Facebook and had a few responses. I also talked to provocraft and they are donating an expression! yaaay.
Anyway - if you would like to donate there are 2 ways of doing it. This is only for craft goods.
You can mail them to, or drop them off at:
Hampton Inn BWI
829 Elkridge Landing Road
Linthicum, MD 21090
Please be sure to put your name and address and perhaps email and blog info in with the items you are donating. I'm sure Mrs. Neale would be grateful and want to thank you.
Or, Someone suggested paypal but to be honest, I don't want to be responsible for money/cash. If you would rather go that route how about a Michaels, Joann or ACMoore gift card? I'd feel more comfortable passing those on to her. They also can be mailed or dropped off at the above address.
I've sent up a January 15, 2012 deadline. If you have any questions, please let me know kricut krazy at gmail dot com. Feel free to share this on your blog or facebook. Anything we can do to help a fellow crafter would be most appreciated!
Hugs & Chirps!
