\Today (as I indicated in my earlier post) I was at a crafting event that I happened to find on Facebook. It was a fundraiser hosted by the American Caner Association. I was a group of ladies (some who have never made handcrafted cards before) getting together to enjoy the afternoon making crafts.
I had a great time chitchatting with everyone at my table and helping out when needed.
Lunch was provided for us, all the items for card making was provided as well, and company of lovely women. All this for a small donation of $30 to help fight cancer. I figure that since it is breast cancer awareness month, that I should do my part.
We made a total of 5 cards, three tags and three card holders.
These lovely ladies have been hosting this even for five years now and hope to continue. This year though the location that we were at, Craft Envy, is closing and will no longer be hosting. This was my first time at this craft store and finding out that they are only open for one more week was a bit sad. On the bright side, the store is selling everything at a 40% discount.
YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!!!! It's time to shop! As you can see, I got this all for 40% off! Of course that means I had to figure a way to sneak this into the house...*whistling to self* I can hardly wait to try this all. :D If you are interested in shopping there, you will find the address in the link above.
Also, these lovely ladies are hosting a spring event for the American Cancer Association in March. See the flier below if you are interested in attending. It's in Santa Clarita, CA. It was a drive for me but it was worth it.
I hope that you join in on the fun. Until next time.
