Mini Clipboards For a Great Cause

Hi There!
Finally getting back into the swing of posting! 

A Blog Friend of Mine - Coley - asked if I would create a little goodie for some very special ladies that she works with at   BirthMom Buds, which is a not for profit organization that provides support to birthmothers (women who placed children for adoption) and pregnant women considering adoption. Each year on the weekend before Mother's Day they have a big retreat in Charlotte, NC for birthmothers and they needed items to fill goodie bags for these ladies! COUNT ME IN!

Anyhoo...this is what I cam up with for the lovely ladies...hope they enjoy their retreat and a little "spoiling" as well! These are Mini Clipboards made out of blank coasters with an altered binder clip and a matching "Pebble Magnet" for the frig! So cute but so easy - and useful as well! These are a great way to get rid of all those DSP scraps that you have laying around your craft room! These are always a big seller for me at my craft shows. Check out all the details for these below....

I'm Baaaaaaack!

Hi There!
Sorry I have been gone so has been hectic! Kaity and I have both been busy with club volleyball and then fighting a bunch of creepy crud around this part of the country a couple times this winter too!

A friend of mine is hosting a benefit for a little boy who was diagnosed with a form of cancer recently and asked if I had a donation that I could send in.  Well....I bought this paper from Jellybean Soup and had to PLAY!!!  So cute! I decided to make a gift basket filled with all kinds of handmade items...also some gardening items as well.

Enjoy, and I will be back with more later this week!

Thanks For Looking!
