Sometimes easy is what gets it done.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Sometimes easy is the only thing that will get it done when you are in a time crunch. If you need a quick favor for Halloween for your co-workers or for your kid’s class then think about the coffin boxes. With some tear and tape and ribbon you are off to the races. (You will probably need some candy too.)

Just remember to give enough time for them to get here. If you are thinking of doing these don’t wait and contact me to order now.

Happy Crafting!

Sending cards.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I’ve been asking for places to send cards to help out. Well…Carol found a place. Thank you Carol!

The Fisher House is a place located by military and VA medical centers around the world. They have up to 21 suites or private bedrooms with a common kitchen and dining space. The first Fisher House opened in 1991.

So I have talked to the local one in California, specifically near San Diego. They didn’t have a use for cards. But Carol went to the one in St Louis, Missouri and they want our cards. They especially want cards for kids.

Here is the address:

Fisher House

Attn: Vanniecia Brown

1 Jefferson Barracks

St Louis, MO 63125

I will be sending boxes of cards to them periodically. So if you have cards with envelopes please send them my way or to Fisher House.

Happy Crafting!

Hope in a Suitcase.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

Have you ever thought about fostering a child or teen? Have you thought about how they get moved around a bunch and often are packing everything they have in a trash bag? Hope in a Suitcase is helping to solve this. They give a child going into foster care a suitcase with basic essentials and one or two comfort items (teddy bear).

Would you like to help? Let me know if this is something we should do.

Please check out the website for Hope in a Suitcase at http://www.hopeinasuitcase.org/.

Give me some feedback and tell me if this is something that interests you.

Happy Crafting!
