Good morning – again! This is my second post of the day – if you’re looking for the fun fold card I shared this morning – here ‘tis!
THIS post is to give you the final results of our one-day amazing Fundraiser to benefit the folks and their pets who are struggling mightily right now after Ian did his number on Florida!
Bottom Line Up Front (ak BLUF – it’s a military thing. It’s also means – just get to the danged point!) – between your orders yesterday ($416) and Direct Donations (#320) – we’ve given $736to help out. Whoo-hoo! We didn’t quite get to the $800 mark but…not too shabby for ONE DAY, I’d say!
T-5, y’all! And – I have some wisdom to impart. It’s about…lists. So – you make a list. You do the first thing and check it off. Then you do the next thing and check it off. Keep doing that and the list gets smaller until finally – you’re DONE!
Unless. Unless when you check something off the TOP…you add another something at the BOTTOM!
Another gift card needed. Another batch of cookies – “just in case”. Quick unplanned trip to the grocery. You get the picture. It becomes a never ending list!
On a brighter note – it’s gonna be Saturday pretty quick and then…the list will no longer matter! LOL
For today’s card, I decided to look ahead to the NEXT holiday/occasion coming down the road – Valentine’s Day! And I used a new bundle, called Sweet Conversations, from the Jan – Jun – 2022 Mini Catalog to make it for you. Take a look-see:
For the last week or so I’ve been running a Fundraiser to help the people and animals so badly impacted by the tornadoes that swept thru Arkansas, Kentucky and Illinois last week. Most of us can’t go help in person. But we CAN help to fund the folks on the ground who are doing just that! I made a small donation and realized that WE could – together! – make a LARGE donation! 🙂
As we stand right this minute – between Direct Donations to Great Good and the 20% of the merchandise total that I’ll be sending tomorrow – our total donation will be $646.50! Whoo-hooo!!
Happy Sunday, y’all! Hope your weekend has been going well. I think – THINK! – all my need-to-mail things are…mailed. Mostly. Okay – so there’s one more package that’ll need to go tomorrow. But I’m SOOO close…I’m calling it good. And I got pretty much all the baking done. Unless I come across a recipe I just have to make. I always forget how much I enjoy baking until I’m back in the kitchen. How about you – is baking a happy-place for you? Or…? 🙂
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live, I appreciate you spending part of your last-weekend-before-Christmas with me. If not, but you’d like to watch the replay on YouTube – here ’tis!
Good morning and HAPPY HAPPY HAWWWMP DAY!! I hope your week is going well!
Before we get going, I’d like to remind you about my Fundraiser for the folks so dreadfully impacted by this week’s tornadoes in AR, KY and IL. Scroll down to see how YOU can help – and see how to maybe win a brand spanking new Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine!
So for today, I’ve got a sweet little gift set for you – with a gift box and three little notecards & envelopes. I used the Heart & Home Memories & More Card Pack and the coordinating Heart & Home Memories & More Cards & Envelopes for the note cards. And I made a gift box for them by decorating a Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxwith a Blessings of Home Bundleimage, sentiment and some foliage atop Heart & Home DSP. Take a look-see:
Good morning again! This is my second post today – if you’re looking for the card I shared this morning and the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop – here’s a link right to it!
I know we’ve all been watching – or living – the devastation that swept thru the mid-west on 10-11 Dec 2021 with the long-track tornadoes. It’s hard to watch without wondering what we can do to help.
I know I can’t go help in person. Can’t load a truck and make in-person donations. But I CAN help to fund the folks on the ground who are doing just that! To that end, I recently made a donation to relief efforts for families and pets thru the Greater Good Organization. As I hit Submit on my small attempt to help, I realized that if a BUNCH of people make a SMALL donation – then it becomes a LARGE one!
So…like the fundraiser we did for the derecho in Iowa last year, I’m coming to you again to gather up some help for the folks in the Arkansas, Kentucky and Illinois areas most affected.
Good morning and happy Saturday! I hope it’s starting well! I got all my food made yesterday – Texas Sheet Cake, Frosted Maple Bars and Deviled Eggs! So I am ready for the baby shower this afternoon. And – thankfully – there are no REAL showers in the forecast!! Whoo-hoo!
I am fully anticipating being home in time to get together with y’all this evening at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FBpage! If something happens to change that – I’ll post an update ON THE FACEBOOK PAGE (not here!). I’ve got a sweet Fall card – my fave! Take a sneaky Peek:
