Say thank you.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I don’t know about you but I love when the littlest things get a thank you.

If you didn’t go to Bingo on Friday you missed out. The food was decent, the company was fun and light, and I didn’t win at all. But the 29 Community Food Pantry did and that was the point. And after all was said and done and I was back home I got a text from my beloved friend that was coordinating this event. It was simple yet elegant. “Thank you for coming. I hope you had a good time.” She always remembers.

My point is this, don’t forget the little things. The thank you makes all the difference.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂

P.S. Unless you haven’t heard it from me recently…THANK YOU! Thank you for reading this blog and being an integral part of this crafty family.

Giving back locally.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Last week I talked about the quilt raffle and bingo on the 15th benefiting the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. These tickets are still available. Contact me if you want to go or get tickets.

But this week is another opportunity. Today I am bringing you the Parade of Homes coordinated by Reach Out Morongo Basin. It is on Sunday, February 17 of Presidents’ weekend. You will get to walk through 5 eclectic homes starting in Morongo Valley and ending in 29 Palms. One house even has a wall that spins. Your $25 ticket includes the tour of the five homes, lunch at the Park Rock Cafe, and live music. If you have any questions you can contact me or Robin at Reach Out Morongo Basin (760-361-1410).

Remember to look local first before driving down the hill or shopping online.

Happy Crafting!

Two ways to give back!

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I have been approached by a dear friend, mentor, and fellow crafter. Lori is President of the Board for the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. Currently the Food Pantry is holding not one, but two, fundraisers. So here are the details for each.

The first fundraiser is a night of Bingo at the Elks Lodge here in 29 Palms on Friday, February 15. Would you like to go with me and have some fun? There will be stamping (hopefully a blackout) and prizes!

The second fundraiser is less expensive and it is not an event. If you would like to purchase tickets for a chance to win this quilt please let me know.

The quilt was handmade by Susan Lunn and donated for this drawing. It is approximately 4’X4′. Tickets are 6 for $5. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Board Meeting on February 25.

All proceeds go to the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. If you have any questions or would like to purchase tickets for either of these fundraisers please contact me.

I love when my fellow crafters make it so easy to give back. If you are a Red Door Crafter and involved with an organization that would like to be featured on Friendship Friday please contact me. I am always looking for new ways to give back and encouraging you to get involved. Our ripples become waves.

Happy Crafting!

Today is craft fair day!

Some days I wake up and try to remember what day is which.  They all seem to run together.  Pay bills, get the mail, cook dinner…  Well, today is different for me at least.  I get a chance to hopefully see you!  I will be at Yucca Valley United Methodist Church on Onaga until 2:00 pm today!  Come by and see what’s new, get a voucher, and a chance to win the raffle!

There’s also plenty of promotions going on.  There’s the two for Bingo (which is tonight) as well as the $100K one.  Please comment if you want more information on any of these.

If you would like to order please use PWFNAJ3Q or contact me.

Well, I am off to set up this craft fair!  Don’t forget to post your creations for points.

Happy Crafting!

Bingo, promotions, and more!

As I sit to type this the smell of taco meat is permeating the walls.  I am getting ready for the first Christmas Stamp-A-Stack of the season.  There will be two this year, today’s and another on October 28th.  We had three last year and a few crafters said that was too much.  So, two it is.

Now to get on with the promotions going on right now.

If you would like to order (not anything in the Holiday Catalog) then please use host code NZC66EF7 or contact me.  This code is good through Monday night at 9 pm.

I am taking orders (beginning today) for the Holiday Catalog.  There is no host code until the 1st and know that nothing will be submitted until the 1st.

If you would like to play Bingo on Saturday, September 16th at 5 pm please let me know.  Pre-pay tickets are $10.  If you are out of the area and want to try your luck I will play for you.  We will make this work.  Here is the promotion part of this.  If you buy a ticket for Bingo or donate $10 then your shipping is FREE for all orders for all of September.  So, if your wish list is over $100 it is cheaper for you to buy a ticket for Bingo then pay shipping.  Also, if you donate at least 5 non-perishable food items then you have your choice of one pack of either dimensionals or mini dimensionals.  Limit of one.

I hope that’s enough to keep you going.  I am off to finish for today’s Stamp-A-Stack!  Happy Crafting!
