21  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Spread the Crafters Love to Difference Makers for the Holidays on: April 09, 2016 06:14:12 PM
OMG!!! We had a very successful auction thanks to all of you!!!!  I'm only posting 2 shots here, but if you go to our Facebook page you can see closeups!  The smaller items I used for a BIN table for the kids and the larger items went into the auction.  Everyone went bonkers over the hand crafted stuff.  I kept hearing responses like, "No way!  Someone made this?"  They were even more jazzed when I told them that you all are professionals and doing this for fun.  They loved hearing about Craftsters.  It was an amazing night.  Thank you  all so much for your love and support.  I truly couldn't have done it without you.  We had nice donations from restaurants, etc., but the art stuffs were very much appreciated by everyone.  I won Bonnie's resin pendant and the tee that Summer made!  Yay!!  Everyone LOVED the chicken and they petted it to death!  It went to a very nice home, but unfortunately the media teacher got outbid. Deanna's and Abigail's jewelry, Emma's screenprinted and sewn items (my friend got your Dr. Who scarf for her daughter); Linda's chapsticks and Bea's crocheted balls were also a huge hit, as were Ashley coin pouches and Nikki's felted items.  I wish you could have been there in person to witness how much everything was loved and oo'd and ah'd about.
Thank you all so much!  Your support really means the world to me!




The monies you helped raise are going to be used for craft supplies/tools, and van maintence. 

Lana is running 2 craft-a-longs with her chorus on Mon/Tues.  Check us out on Facebook to see what we're doing.


What kind of craft supplies/tools?  Some of us might be able to help out there as well as giving finished items.

Aw, thank you Kathy!  You have such a big heart!  Smiley  I will let you know once plans are more firmly in place.  Bryan just discovered that I can craft a little.  LOL.  The first thing we are working on is pinatas for Extraordinary Birthdays.  I will help them with that on Wed. Lana is  a pinata pro so I'm sure they really won't need my help.  After this they are probably going to focus on making stuffies for a while.  I'm going to see if they want to help with my pillows for the NIH Children's Inn.  They only need to be stuffed with fiber fill and sewn up.  My personal thoughts are that DM should learn how to make jewelry that they can use to help charities like Extraordinary Birthdays and either sell or auction off.  If we go that route then simple jewelry tools are probably the most need item.  I have fabrics to share with them if they aren't too picky.  I would love to teach them how to make bibs for their Newborns in Need projects.  Smiley  There are so many fun possibilites, tie dyed/bleached tees to sell, knitting/crocheting hats for vets/babies, sewn items.  I can't wait!!!  Smiley

Thank you TBA!!!  I already feel that it is with great friends like you helping us.  BTW Bryan really likes your chicken!  I am hoping that the media teacher who is a big chicken fan (has a awesome chicken outfit and a rubber chicken that he "hits" the kids with) will win her.

WOO HOO!  Today is the big day!  Thank you to all of you for sharing your wonderful talents with us!  I can't wait!  I know everyone is going to go crazy over all the handcrafted items!  Smiley  The monies you helped raise are going to be used for craft supplies/tools, and van maintence. 

We have a very big week coming up.  Global Youth Services Week!...well it is actual GYSD, but there was so much the kids wanted to do that they made it a week.  Lana is running 2 craft-a-longs with her chorus on Mon/Tues.  Check us out on Facebook to see what we're doing.

Thanks again and have an awesome day!

Smiley  It was pretty crazy.  Basically you put the stabilizer in the hoop and then pin the hat to it.  It's hard to get it flat.  Mine wasn't 100% flat, but when it stitched it everything was fine.  Smiley

What a great design!

I know kids love collecting buttons, so this hit the mark!  This is a wonderful service organization...it is great to read about kids doing good things...positive things...we need more of this kind of news!

Thanks Always!  DM is wonderful!  Thank you and to our other Craftsters for your support!  BTW Lana is really getting good at designing things in Photoshop.  She is opening up a button making business called Small Things Matter.  It will be used to continue to fund raise for DM.  Stay tuned for her website.  Smiley

Congrats Freakie!!!!  Lucius is ADORABLE!  Smiley

This isn't my craft, but I wanted to share.  Smiley Lana designed 2.5" buttons for Difference Makers Global Youth Services Day on April 16.  Youth from around the world are united in community service on this day.  DM has a huge list of organizations they'll be supporting for this day and throughout the month of April.  All students participating will be receiving a button.  Smiley
