Hi fellow craftsters!

I've been wanting to do something to help a local orphanage (http://www.bariumsprings.org) and thought that having  a "homemade drive" would be a lot of fun. I'm looking for people to help reach my goal of donating 1000 handmade bibs and/or receiving blankets (which is on their list of "needs".) Deadline is July June1st June 22nd - so there is plenty of time to make a bib (or two!) or a blanket. If you would like to join in on this fun adventure please let me know! You can check out my blog at http://mamasamess.blogspot.com/2009/05/drop-dead-deadline-for-bibs-blankets.html for more info and for the reasons why I chose to do this. Thank you so much!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Hi Scareplane! Thanks so much for offering to help! I sent you a personal message with my mailing address. No special packaging needed! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! THANKS!  Smiley

New Deadline!

Tomorrow was the deadline that I posted for bibs/blankets/other handmade items to donate to a home for children. Since I'm getting closer to my move date I have a better idea of my time frame to get things done. SO! If you'd still like to participate you can!

The absolute no-later-than due date to get things in to be is:

June 22nd

Message me for my shipping address.

If you're not sure what I'm talking about see my post here: http://mamasamess.blogspot.com/2009/05/drop-dead-deadline-for-bibs-blankets.html

I've already had a couple of Craftsters help out. Thank you all so much!

Sad! I think it's too late for me to get it to you in time. This is a wonderful idea, though. Let me know if you do it again?

String of Pearls -

Thank you so much for your interest and offer to help! I will definitely let everyone know if I do this again! Smiley
