Giving back.

It’s Friendship Friday!  This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.  Today’s blog post hits home to me because it affects my own.  Here is what is going on.  The marching band program up at the high school where my daughter attends is in jeopardy of not being able to compete due to lack of funds.  So here is how I am giving back.  Anyone that donates $20 or more from now until the end of September will come to the next Card Class for FREE!  If you donate $50 or more you will come to the next Card Class FREE and be invited to the host appreciation.

So here is what you have to do.  Go to Band Site ( and donate.  When it says confirmed or submitted take a screenshot and send it to me via text, email, or message.  Basically send it to me privately.  This is your “receipt” for Card Class and the Host Appreciation.

Thank you for being part of this crazy crafty family.

Happy Crafting!

Cards and a wash.

Penny is recovering but still has a bit to go.  I am putting together a care package for her by mid next week.  This means cards and gift cards for dinner.  They usually go out so I thought gift cards for places that deliver or have curbside service would be good for hubby to pick up.  That way something would be “normal”.  If you would like to bring a card or contribute to the gift card basket simply let me know.

Here is the schedule.

I will be up at Yucca Valley High School today from 9:30-11:00 am.  If you bring at least a card I will give you a ticket to get your car washed by the kids for FREE.  This is my way of giving back to you and saying thanks.  I have 4 tickets, so the first 4 gets a clean car.

On Tuesday I will be up at the Yucca Valley Walmart for National Night Out from 5-7:30.  You can bring your cards or contributions then.  Sorry, no car wash.

Thanks for being part of this crazy crafty family.

Happy Crafting!

Thank you for filling me up.

Sometimes you don’t even realize when you fill someone up, give back, or pay it forward.  (It just depends on how you want to say it.)  Well, I was filled to the brim last night.  Tara, my daughter, had her concert last night (and first solo) and I was able to take off at 3:30, pick up a friend of hers, grab a pizza, and enjoy her concert.  There was no guilt of what else I was missing.  No thought that I should be home making calls, finishing paperwork, etc. like with the previous business.  Thank you for your support in this.  Here is a photo from last night.


Without you coming to class, ordering, and just making my job enjoyable I wouldn’t be able to have moments like this.  Thank you.

Without you knowing it you gave back.  Now I’m not saying you’re completely off the hook but THANK YOU.  If you have a card to mail go do that.  If not, go create one.  Share a smile, a coffee, whatever it takes.  You never know when you will make a difference.

Here’s to creating impact through creativity!

Radio-a-thon, sales, promotions, and more!

Well, today is stacking up to be pretty full.  There are plenty of promotions to take advantage of and a little to give back to.  Shall we get started?

The Radio-a-thon on Z107.7 is running today from 12-5 pm.  If you donate $10 or more please contact me.  I have a prize for you for giving back to our kids.  If you can’t call in but still want to donate I will get them to the right place and you will still get a prize.

The Fast Fuse Promotion might be sold out but I did purchase a few extra sets.  If you still want one please contact me directly.


The total out the door is $11.85 unless you need it shipped elsewhere.  Please let me know if you are interested.

If that’s not enough I also have my personal promotion for the snail adhesive running through Monday night.


This is not a corporate promotion so you will need to contact me to order.

Sale-A-Bration is almost half way!  If you would like a copy of the brochure for the second release please let me know.

To order online please use host code ERAKCZSR to help Sandy.  If you want to take advantage of these promotions all orders will go to Sandy unless you tell me differently.

Thank you for being part of this fun, and a little crazy, group.

Happy Crafting!
