Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Wow - you guys did great - I did not realize that it passed already!  Too bad the jewelry did not do as well this time around, but it sounds like you had a good variety of things.

If there is a plan for one later in the year - maybe pre-Christmas, and I get enough notice - I could contribute some handmade ornaments.

Sounds like everyone had a great time raising funds!  What a fabulous experience for all involved...BTW, I got a lovely email from Brian...I just know the food truck will be used for good purposes!

I think I will start a basket of miscellaneous items for charity work...you are so right, Rox...there is no rhyme or reason why some thing sell some of the times and not others...with most craft fairs, you have to sort of have a mix of everything at all times!!!

Yay!  Glad it raised so much money and it will be going to such good use!  Sounds like you'll have a good stock pile of extra handmade items for other random sale opportunities throughout the year, too!  Go you, and go DM!  Smiley

Thanks all!!!  BTW our food distribution starts this weekend!

Bryan let me name our food program Kokua Foods.  Kokua is a Hawaiian word, that translates as "extending loving, sacrificial help to others for their benefit, not for personal gain..." and I thought this was a nice way to explain what we are trying to do, show kokua.  Smiley

So excited to see how it will all work out. I'm going to try to take some photos and hopefully some video as well and will share it so that you can all come along on this exciting journey.

Thank you all again for your wonderful support!  Smiley

Gah, the school threw in a wrench yesterday so Bryan has decided to postpone it until May 7.  It's ok because we can use the time, but the kids are off on Spring Break next week so those that are in need of food support would really have benefited from this program.  Sad
