Amazing goodies!!!

Hold one to your hats though it's my time to share...

So I got this wonderful box of goodies from LeapFeetFirst.  It was wrapped in pretty paper that Melanie printed for me (sorry can't show them because I used it to wrap up a little present for Averia's daughter.  Smiley 

When I unwrapped it guess what I found?
A lovely, beautiful, amazing snake greeted us!  He's the perfect replica of Lana's snake Mo'o...her corn snake.  Smiley 

Now Lana can take big Mo'o everywhere!

But wait there's more....
Wonderful handspun yarn!  Those of you who know LFF, know that her handspun is legendary!  This is so lovely!!!  And yes, these are the leftovers.  She spun this up to make Mo'o!!!!

And if that weren't enough LFF made us some lovely cards with her new gelli pad!

Thank you Melanie for all the wonderful goodies.  You really spoiled us!  Smiley

Hi all!

This Friday we had our STEAM/DM Auction.  All the handmade goodies were loved as usual! 

The knit/crocheted items were a big hit this time around.  The sewn stuff not so much.  I don't know if there is any rhyme or reason to it all. The handmade cards were a big hit too.  The jewelry which usually does really well didn't this time around.  Oh well.  The great thing about all these goodies is that I can store them for the next event!  Smiley 

But here is the exciting news....we made over 5K!  Smiley  It couldn't have come at a better time since we are gearing up for the food distribution!!!  And I fear that our van (old) is on its last legs.  It is over 16 years old and from the rewiring Bryan discovered he thinks that it was used to power and haul a trailer.  Today it wouldn't start and he ended up having to rent a vehicle to take them to their convention site visit.  This isn't the first time that this has happened. I am hoping that he'll consider getting another van soon.   

Here is Lana getting set up to make buttons.  I didn't get a good action shot, but you can see Always' machine and some of her preprinted button offerings.  They do well, but the kids really enjoy creating their own images.

We are now gearing up for Global Youth Service Day on April 22.  I'll share Lana's button design for that once it comes together.  Smiley

Thanks again to all of you for helping us!  You all have truly made a difference.

Just wanted to share that our partnership with Wegmans is a go!  I signed papers on Saturday and our first food distribution to the needy in Takoma Park/Silver Spring MD will be on April 8th!  

We also purchased this to do the deliveries.

You can read more about it here as well as see our GoFundMe page.  Smiley

We also need to get coolers and a portable refrigerator for the perishable items and bins to transport the food.

The auction will definitely help pay for these items.  Thanks so much all for your continued support!!!

Bea, thank you again for your amazing donations!   The kids are really going to have fun with the smaller items you sent and I'm sure your larger pieces will do well in the auction.  DM is lucky to have a friend like you!!!  So am I!

And thank you to all the rest of you for crafting for us!  Smiley

I'm hoping to squeeze in some crafting for the auction as soon as I can.  I already have some jewelry pieces done, but I am hoping to make a scarf or two.  Lana is going to put one of her shibori scarves in the auction.  Smiley

Here's my first of the year.  DM vests for the kids.  Smiley  There are 30 here.  My basement was covered in them.  It was funny.  I should have taken a shot of them drying.  Anyhow this was my first time printing on polyester and I had to add a catalyst to the ink to lower the drying temp.  Cool stuff.

1. Difference Makers logos screenprinte on vests (30 vests)

I finally finished the screen for our Canada meetup and will be working on that next....well I will once I dig myself out from under the pile of donation requests I'm putting in for our auction.  BTW if any of you are interested in donating an auction item check this out: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451292.msg5424882#msg5424882

20  Difference Makers Silent Auction March 31, 2017 in Crafty Charitable/Social Causes by underthemountain 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:
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!!!
