Just a few of the donations before I go to bed…
April 21, 2007
I am going to leave the comments on the post for Heather open through next week. Several people have emailed me that they were not able to donate yet, but were planning on it. Also people had emailed asking if they could donate something for the raffle. Absolutely. If you have something you would like to share, please email me.
And now to quickly and hopefully tactfully get something off my chest, If you don’t want to participate in the raffle for whatever reason then just don’t leave a comment. As much as I am sure Heather appreciates that you would like the items sent to her I don’t think that a) she would really want ALL of it, (unless she really does want all of it in which case we can make that happen too I am sure) and b) It shouldn’t be viewed as a reward for donating, rather as a token of thanks from strangers untied for a common cause.
I like to think of the raffle as donations of love. People who have come together as a community to share kindness. I know if I were to win one of the items, which obviously I can not, but if I were to win every time I looked at that item it would remind me of the goodness of strangers. It would remind me that small things can add up to great colossal unimaginably large things. It would remind me that in this vast world we as individuals can make a difference. And most of all I would be reminded of Heather.
And so it is in that spirit I hope the raffle is perceived.
I am completely in awe of all these talented crafty people.
Quite a few people are still busy working on their donations and don’t have a photograph to share yet, but when they do I will be posting them also.
Keryn does not have a blog. I know shocking isn’t it? That there are still people who exist that don’t detail their lives on the internet. Keryn is donating a matching mother/daughter bracelet set AND another bracelet. These bracelets are simply stunning.
The beautiful Karen, of chookooloonks has donated one of her photographs, matted and framed. All you have to do is hammer a nail into your wall and hang it up. Don’t even tell me you don’t have somewhere to hang something this gorgeous.
Katie, from Ramblings of a SAHM, is so incredibly talented that it kills me. She makes her daughters’ matching Easter dresses, knits all FIVE of her children matching sweaters, quilts, sews, scrapbooks and probably cooks the partridge in the pear tree. Katie has donated this red felted pocketbook, or purse, or handbag… whatever term you use in the part of the country you live in. I call it a pocketbook and I also drink soda.
Look at these blankets! Don’t they just look so soft and cuddly? Lisa, who does have a blog, Three Beans… and a sprout makes these baby blankets. The winner can choose either the pink or the blue one. So cute they almost make me want to have another baby. Oh how I am laughing. Seriously they do make me wish I had a friend having a baby.
Here is the description of the blankets she emailed me.
1. Cute, custom made ’snugli’ blanket made with a girly Paris theme print measures approximately 26″ x 33″. It is made with super soft flannel and backed with luxurious minky fabric in light pink. ‘Snugli’ Blanket has a beautiful scalloped edge that makes it unique and is top stitched for durability. It’s size makes it great for the stroller, car seat, nap time, or even for dragging around by a toddler. Fabric is pre-washed to reduce shrinkage. Machine wash cold and dry on low heat.
2. Cute, custom made ’snugli’ blanket made with an out-of-this-world alien print measures approximately 26.5″ x 29.5″. It is made with super soft flannel and backed with luxurious minky fabric in bright blue. It’s size makes it perfect for the stroller, car seat, nap time, or even for dragging around by a toddler. Fabric is pre-washed to reduce shrinkage and top stitched for durability. Machine wash cold and dry on low heat.
Alli, from Adventures in Imperfection, makes these adorable aprons. Seriously I think maybe if I had a cute apron I would enjoy cooking more. because I am all about the accessories. Not only is Alli donating a handmade apron, but she will let the winner decide what colors/fabrics to have it made in. Don’t want you to clash with your kitchen while you are cooking!
