Helping others… and a giveaway!


Just a few “great-way-to-help-others-out” links… and a fun giveaway.

First, we haven’t recently updated everyone on the kids from our former Card Drives. I wanted to let you know we are in the process of gathering the latest updates on each and will share them with you as soon as we can. I am sad to say we did lose Karli to her battle with the horrible disease. We continue to keep her family in our prayers. However, Kennedy is in remission! So glad to hear. (A big thanks to Michelle for her help with contacting the families.)

I also had mentioned next doing a card drive for the elderly. This is still in the plans for this summer. For those who volunteered to help, I have you on a list and will contact you. (We do plan to return to collecting cards for kids in the future.)

In the meantime, you can still do good with your cards! Please be sure to check out my friend Heather‘s card drive… a Card Drive for James.

This little boy could use our encouragement! Heather is also offering great prizes for those who send in cards.

My dear friend, Kristina, has started a new site called Caylin’s Cure.

This fundraiser is in honor of Kristina’s gorgeous daughter Caylin, who was diagnosed on March 2, 2011 at age 5 with type 1 diabetes. My brother also has this insulin-dependent diabetes – it is a horrible challenge in life. I hope you will check out her site and see what you can do to help. She also has great prizes… and many GREAT ones are coming soon.

I have another great way for you to help a good cause… and shop at the same time!

Lawn Fawn will be donating 20% of profits from May 1-7 to the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization. Kelly, the owner of Lawn Fawn, lost her grandmother to breast cancer and her mom is a two time survivor. This also hits home with me – my Grandma beat breast cancer at a young age and lived to 100. We must beat this cancer! So, head over to Lawn Fawn and do some shopping. :)

Next, I have a little housekeeping to do.

Remember me telling you all about the fun event called True Scrap? It was a huge success – so much fun! Well, if you were one of those folks who signed up for the event through my link, I promised a private video after class. I have emailed everyone who had emailed me with some information. If you did not get this email and did sign up with my link, please email me ASAP. Don’t want to miss anyone! And if you didn’t get to do True Scrap, you can still get all the videos HERE. It was fun!

Now… how about a giveaway!?
My dear friend, Britta Swiderski, recently released a e-book called No-Stress Distress Inks. This class is great. There is a ton of information in the class, along with video and many perks. You can find out more about it HERE. (By the way, Britta is a young thing – a college student. LOVE seeing those younger gals scrapbook!) For a chance to win a free copy of this e-book and such, just leave a comment by Tuesday night.

Have a great weekend…
