What kinds/sizes of crafts were you hoping to auction off? I'd be happy to make something, or a few somethings; I just like to have a starting point! Would home dec items like quilted placemats/table runners sell, or maybe iPhone cases, or a hoopla with a funny saying on it? It's my guess that the hooplas would be something that most people outside of crafting circles don't see too often. Around here, we've all made a bunch and probably received a few in swaps, so we're a bit burnt out on them; non-craftsters still think they're innovative.
Love these ideas RA! The auction will be open to the kids at the middle school all week and will culminate in a night time event where parents/friends will be invited to come and bid as well. I think anything you want to make would be loved.
I'll happily donate anything that's left in my STS, UTM - anything strike your fancy? The wood-burned spoon or necklace? Cork burned magnets or coasters?
I can also make something else if none of this works/is big enough.
Hi Abbee! I love these! I showed them to Lana and she loved your necklace and thought the kids would too. We're new to this school so we really don't know how their tastes run, but it is a very artsy community so I'm sure anything would be great. I loved your wire wrapped pendants you offered in our STS.
Since students are bidding, would something like hats in school colors be something they would like? Or can those be purchased at school already? I am so out of touch as to what kids would want...maybe parents would like aprons? Can you find out from some of the kids what sort of stuff they would like?
Hi Always! I think aprons would be a hit! The hats would be good, except that it's being held in April now.
Anyhow any of your sewn goodies would be loved. Their mascot is a blue devil if that helps.
The magnet program has a science, math, computer science focus so nerdy things are also good.
Me too - I was thinking household things too, but now I am thinking pendents, bracelets, bookmarks... shipping small things would be easier on me too.
Hi Onyx! Anything will be loved...and definitely go for things cheaper to ship.
I think I'll send these four coin/card purses:
I could do something else, though, if that would be better? I just figured they're small, and could be kid or parent friendly...good holiday gift card holders.
Thank you LovelyMiss! Those are adorable!
Thank you all so much for all the energy and thoughtfulness you are putting into this. I am deeply touched and I'm sure the kids will be too.
