2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Difference Makers Silent Auction March 31, 2017 on: January 07, 2017 02:32:43 PM


Hi all!

Difference Makers, a non-profit student run group that my daughter belongs to is hosting their second annual DM Silent Auction on March 31, 2017 6-9pm at Takoma Park Middle School in Silver Spring MD.  Most of you know about the club, but for those of you who don't I put some information at the end of this post.  Smiley

The auction was a huge success last year not only in terms of raising some much needed funds for our club, but also in terms of building community.  Much of the success of it was due to my generous Craftster friends who donated AMAZING items to our auction.  I wish all of you could have been there to hear all the comments.  Some people have never seen handmade items that look so professional and they were shocked to know that someone actually made it.   Grin  I'm hoping that some of you will join in again to help them!

Here are some photos from last year's event:
https://www.facebook.com/makeadifferencewithus/posts/1116636718380148
  
If anyone is willing to donate an auction item to Difference Makers please send it by March 17 if possible so that I can get the placards, space, everything else made in time.  Please include your name/company name, website, and business card (1 for each item since people may gift them and 1-2 extra for me to share with others that might have lost the bidding and would like to contact you).   I can also provide you with an acknowledgement letter that you can use for tax purposes if you itemize and give me an approximate value.  Smiley  The items will be put on display for 1 week during which time the students can bid on them and will end with a night event on March 31st where parents can come in and bid on the items.

Please send your items to the following address:
Difference Makers
Attn: Bryan Goehring/Craftsters Friends
9295 Maxwell Court
Laurel MD 20723

Please mark it Crafsters otherwise they might open it up and lose the contents and please PM me when you send to him so that I can ask Bryan to be on the lookout for it.  Thanks!   Grin

I have already received some wonderful items from my friends at the Canada meetup. THANK YOU for your continued kindness and support!!!

Details of swap: (thanks to Dulcinea and Sevsonlygirl!)
This is a swap for the geezers.  The idea here is that we've all been crafting for eons, and are pretty good at what we do.

This is also a swap where there is a sizeable commitment, both for time, and resources.  We are going to be crafting one really big, really nice item for our partner.  If you cannot commit to the time or resources, please consider carefully before signing up for this swap.

You'll make up a list of 5-10 large things that you would love if someone made for you.  You'll also make up a list of 5-10 things that you're really good at, that you'd love to make for your fellow geezers.  And if you can make it from your stash, and reduce the stash, making room for more, NEW stash, so much the better.  

What's a large item, you ask?  generally, we're talking something that takes 3 or more hours, is large in physical size, or costs $30 or more in materials (or any combination of those).

You need to post to this thread, so that it comes up as unread replies if I have something to tell y'all.

I will not tolerate flakers.  We all will have 2.5 months to craft and send out.  That should be enough time.  A DC or Customs number is required, if available.  If you do not have a DC or Customs number, you MUST send me a scan of your postal receipt, showing that the package was sent out.

If you are a week late sending (after the sendout date), you will receive a temporary negative.  This will be changed back to In Progress upon proof of sending.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Leaves and Ukes on: August 12, 2016 02:38:16 AM
Hi! Wanted to get back to my favorite crafting medium...clay! so I signed up to take a pottery class last month.  I was hoping to practice my wheel work, but I had to cut my time short since Lana's school is starting so I wimped out and did what was easy.  I made a few slab work pieces and thought I'd share them with you today.  I used some "borrowed" hosta leaves for the platter and a cookie cutter for the ukulele ornaments.  I embellished the ornaments with a dowel to press a hole and my rib tool to make some abstract lines to suggest the strings.  Anyhow this will probably be my last forte into clay till next summer. 
Enjoy! R

hosta leaf plate...you can see my name in kanji at the bottom if you have good eyes.  Smiley


ukulele ornaments that I made as Christmas presents for our halau.  Will probably sign the back with 2016.


Also made a few pendants and mugs...some pendants may sneak into my Shop the Swap Shop once I figure out how I want to put them together.

We are advertising this event through e-blasts, print, and social media.

8  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Craftster Card Swap (SignUps 7/15/16-7/29/16 CLOSED, Sendouts 8/15/16) on: July 15, 2016 07:46:35 AM


CRAFTSTER CARD SWAP
This is the first ever (and hopefully not the last) Crafster Card Swap.  This swap was inspired by the What do you look like thread on the Crafster Off-Topic Chit Chat and the awesome Crafster Canada Meetup in July that made me want to find out more about my Crafster friends!  The idea is to make a card all about you, kinda like a baseball card, but even more awesome.  You can reproduce your card or create new ones for each of your partners.  You can craft it from any material, but make sure that it is sturdy and that it will fit into a card sleeve if you are using different materials.  Please use both the front and backsides of your card to tell us all about you!

BASIC CARD REQUIREMENTS

There are some basic requirements that should be on your card:
Size of the card: Should be the standard ATC 2.5" x3.5"
Front side: should include your image (can be done as a photo, drawing, painting, digitally altered, completely up to you!) and your Crafster name
Back side: can include your interests, your real name, address, etc. ..whatever you are comfortable with; you can even write a poem.  Completely open!

Thanks to rockingbearbranch .  I used her wonderful ATC swap as a template.  Grin

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craftster Trading Cards on: July 03, 2016 08:50:01 PM
I had this idea to make a swap around creating Craftster trading cards a while back and had a chance to float this idea at our recent Craftster Canada Meetup. The idea is for each of us to make a trading card with our info on it.  Each person can decide for themselves about how much or how little they want to reveal about themselves.
 
There would be some simple requirements: a 2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches (64 mm 89 mm) format, it would feature some sort of picture of yourself on it, but it could be done in any way that you choose...photo, painting, cartoon, etc. and it would include your Craftster name.  Other info that it could include would be your real name, address, email, where you're from, things you like, etc...basically any information you'd like to share, similar to what we have in our profiles, but definitely not limited to just those topics. 

I think it could be alot of fun and each of us could produce/reproduce as many as we'd like to trade for.  If others are up for it I could organize it in a couple of weeks.  Smiley

10  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Spread the Crafters Love to Difference Makers for the Holidays on: November 12, 2015 05:07:51 PM
Moved from: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=196.0

We will be holding our auction from April 4-8, 2016.  Please send your donations to Difference Makers by March 16th if possible so that I can get everything ready. Thank you my wonderful friends!  Smiley
Please send me your:
      name
      company name
      website
      business card (1 for each item since people may gift them and 1-2 extra for me to share with others that might have lost the bidding and would like to contact you) to the following address:

Difference Makers
Attn: Bryan Goehring/Craftsters
9295 Maxwell Court, Laurel MD 20723

Please mark it Crafsters otherwise they might open it up and lose the contents and please PM me when you send to them so that I can ask Bryan to be on the lookout for it.  Thanks!  Smiley

I realize some of you might just be donating and not wanting customers, but I thought I'd just put it out there for those that might.  Not everyone is as lucky as we are to be in Craftster swaps.  Thanks! Smiley





Hi all!
Lana is a member of a wonderful non-profit, student run organization called the Difference Makers (http://www.difference-makers.org/).  Their mission is to help raise tomorrow's leaders by giving them opportunities to lead and serve the community (snow shovelling, homeless, etc).  This has grown from a middle school organization in 2009 to including several new 3 high schools this year with plans to expand into more MS soon.  To date their leader has been paying for the operational costs out of his pocket. He's a middle school science teacher and you all know how much I love science!  He is really the most selfless person I have ever met and I felt that I couldn't just sit there and not try to help him.  We are now working on a silent auction to help pay the increasing operational costs as these programs expand.  I am hoping that my amazing Craftsters family will be able to donate a crafted item for this auction.  The items will be put on display for 1 week during which time the students can bid on them and will end with a night event on April  16 where parents can come in and bid on the items.  Please see their Facebook/youtube pages to see all the great things they've been doing and please 'like' it!  
Thanks for considering it! Smiley
