Here's something I crafted out of many little parts. Lana shot some of the video as did other Difference Makers, plus me and John.  Smiley  It shows the heart that went into our recent Global Youth Service Day/Week/Month.  Please check it out!

Hi Bea!
Thanks for letting me know.  I think I fixed it.  Our Facebook had problems so we had to redo it and now have a new address.
Anyhow please watch the youtube to see what we did for GYSD!!!

Check out our Global Youth Service Day/Week/Month in this video that I put together. Lana helped me shoot the footage and wants to do their videos next year.  Smiley

If only I lived close (yeah right) and was in good health (yeeeeaaah right), I would love to help you out!
I am a difference maker by heart.

You are DEFINITELY a difference maker!!!  Smiley

Check out our latest Facebook post.  Lana got to lead.  The last photo shows Lana and Mr. Goehring.  Cute!

Mom = Busy Smiley Seriously they are in a hole and I'm trying to help them out of it.  Most of the DM parents don't contribute anything to the club and are happy to let Bryan treat their kids to lunch/dinner when they help out at an event on top of paying for all the crafting supplies and driving their kids to and from events.  Lana donated $100 to the club after her first time out with Bryan after he treated all the kids to a snack for helping him with the flyers.  She said it wasn't right that he paid for everything. I was really proud of her because she has been saving for her wedding/college since she was little and this was the first time she'd ever spent any of it. 

Onyx, I got your pendant!!!  Happy Dance!  It was fantastic thanks to all of you!!  All of your things are great.  Don't worry about it.  That goes for everyone.  The shoppers really varied in age/tastes and everyone fell in love with something.

Yes, I meant to make a picture frame with wires strung from end to end to pin up your items.  I still have some leftover so I will do that next time.  I just ran out of time.  I was literally printing things to the very end and even got there late for setup.

You sure did a lot of projects for the charity auction!!!  It was fun to be part of the gang that helped out!

Craftsters rock big time!

(Sounds like the title for an amazing swap doesn't it?!)

Thanks Bea! Smiley  Everyone had such a wonderful time.  It was good community building in addition to helping us with our financial woes.  Oh, and Lana and I were lucky enough to get 2 of your crocheted key rings!  I missed out on so many fun things like Always' lipbalm holders and LM's coin purses because I wasn't quick enough. And I got outbid on PW's felted hat, etc. Grr. Next year I should find someone to end the auction for me...like John so that I can get in some last minute shopping.

Our next and last fundraiser for the year is a band concert on May 20th that my boss's band UnCommon Core is helping us with.  They are a cover band for 80's music. https://www.facebook.com/UnCommonCoreDC/
We will get 10% of the drink sales which hopefully will be $200+ according to the Barking Dog Bar owner. To make a little more money I'm collecting restaurant cards for a raffle and I'm thinking of asking for a $5 donation at the door.  I hope it goes well.  Any thoughts on how to do this better?  I hate feeling like I am stumbling along.

Anyhow that is a long way away.  Today Lana will be helping her chorus craft for the Thoughful Treasures Program at the NIH Children's Inn. The idea is to put a small something in each child's mailbox for every day of their stay. I've been crafting simple pillows for them since Lana was 2...in fact she started then too.  I would let her draw on cardstock and make them into bookmarks by writing happy phrases on them.  Today she'll be helping our Training chorus and Young Men's chorus make origami.  We made little thank you messages on lollipops for the choruses.  I'm combining it with a Snack & Mingle event so it should be lots of fun.  Lana is doing this as part of their Global Youth Service Week.  It culminates on Sat with a huge crafting event (pinatas for Extra Ordinary Birthdays, knitting/crochet for homeless and Newborns in Need), collecting supplies (toiletries for Totes for the Homeless, bikes for Africa), running a Farmers Market Lemonade Stand for hunger awareness, and a Bag Lunch Campaign for the homeless.  I'll be posting events as they occur on our Facebook page.  Smiley
