WE'VE REACHED OUR GOAL! 
BUT WE ARE NOT STOPPING YET!!
As you can see from the color chart - most of the donations are from straight up donations, not connected with sales, so this thrills our souls!

I am donating 10% of every order you place through me, and we am also taking outside donations.
You may send your check payable to:
Christi Waite

Happy Veterans Day!

Monday, November 11, 2019
Please scroll down to see how much our fundraiser thermometer has increased over the weekend with our craft sales and donations.
My daddy is my hero! A WW11 Navy veteran
He was featured on our local news channel by Newscaster Brian Sterling
This is what they wrote:
The year was 1944 and World War II in the Pacific theater was inching toward its violent climax. 
“A suicide plane came in and it hit one of the transports and it threw a bunch of sailors in the sea. And we couldn’t save them because we had to take care of the fire … on the two ships that was damaged, got hit by the suicide plane,” Joslin recalled, pausing as he became emotional. “That was my first realization that war was war.”
Twice his ship was hit by torpedoes that did not explode. Another time, a bomb hit the ship but miraculously didn’t detonate. 
Joslin’s ship escorted the battleship USS Missouri to Iwo Jima for the monthlong battle that claimed nearly 7,000 American lives. He was there to see Marines raise the flag, as depicted in the Iwo Jima Memorial, a monument Joslin has visited to pay tribute to those who didn’t come home.
You can view his video interview HERE
This is the card that I made for him this year and it is a picture of the SS Bauer, the destroyer ship that my dad was stationed on.
My brother-in-law is also a veteran who served in the Vietnam War. We are so very proud of him too. We thank them both (and all of our veterans & current servicemen) for their sacrifice and service to our country that we love so very much!
During the month of November we are doing a fundraiser for our grandson, Sawyer.

New Craft Sale Items and a Fundraiser Update!

Saturday, November 9, 2019
Today, Dale and I are at the Fremont Middle School for a craft sale. This is probably the biggest sale we are involved in. We hope you will stop by to see us. We are located in the gymnasium.

I've added s few new items (since I sold so well at the Georgetown Bible Church Craft Sale)
These adorable boxes filled with wrapped Hershey Nugget Chocolates have a snow globe dome on the top. Darling! and Delicious!! I cased these from Brenda Quintana
Product used:
Stampin' Blends: Crumb Cake Combo, Cherry Cobbler Dark, Shaded Spruce Dark
Card Stock: Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White Thick, Gold Foil, Gold Glimmer

This sweet M&M treat jar features one of my favorite poems
M&M Christmas Poem
As you hold these candies in your hand
And turn them, you will see
The ‘M’ becomes a ‘W’,
An ‘E’, and then a ‘3’.

They tell the Christmas story~
I’m sure it’s one you know.
It took place in a stable
A long, long time ago.

The ‘E’ is for the East,
Where the star shone so bright.
The ‘M’ is for the Manger,
Where the Baby Jesus slept at night.

The 3’’ is for the Wisemen,
Bearing gifts, with which they came.
‘W’is for Worship,
Hallelujah! Praise His Name!

So as you eat these candies
Or share them with a friend,
Remember the meaning of Christmas:
It’s a love that never ends.

During the month of November we are doing a fundraiser for our grandson, Sawyer. Click HERE to see the introduction video.
I will donate 10% of every order you place through me. I am also taking outside donations.

Green indicates donations through my Stampin' Up! sales.
Blue indicates donations through Dale's hand made soaps sales. He had a really good day in sales yesterday and it's exciting to add the color to our thermometer.

Last night we had our team meeting.  I just love this night with the gals on my team! 
Anna is in my second level and she agreed to be our guest demonstrator for the evening for our Make & Take project.
Anna chose to use her favorite penguins from PLAYFUL PENGUINS and shared a cute story about penguins when she was a little girl.
This is the card that she prepared for us to make
I love the break from the traditional green and red color scheme that goes with Christmas.
The colors that she chose are Pool Party and Mint Macron

During the month of November I am doing a fundraiser for our grandson, Sawyer.

Our fundraiser thermometer is still growing with a little bit of sales from yesterday. Thank you everyone who came out to the COME STAMP WITH ME CLASS on Tuesday. Every little bit helps! Can you see that little bit of green?  So exciting!

Red indicates outside donations.
Green indicates donations through sales.

This is one of the cards that we made at yesterday's COME STAMP WITH ME CLASS.
It features the newest product suite CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE.   
I cased this card from Melanie, but changed up the card base color using Mossy Meadow instead of Old Olive and I also changed up the sentiment so that it did not need to be a Christmas card. This sentiment is from Good Morning Magnolia.
I think this paper (Christmastime is Here Specialty) is absolutely gorgeous! I fussy cut the flowers out and popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I love the gold embossing on the designer paper and the added accents with the Gold Shimmer Ribbon and the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots. This card is a true stand-out!

Baby Shower

Tuesday, November 5, 2019
During the month of November I am doing a fundraiser for our grandson, Sawyer. Click HERE to see the introduction video.
I will donate 10% of every order you place through me. I am also taking outside donations.
You may send your check payable to:

Each day (so far) our little fundraiser thermometer is growing.
I received this lovely fall card in the mail yesterday with a generous check towards Sawyers care. We are so extremely thankful!

Red indicates outside donations.
Green indicates donations through sales. I would love to see a little more green on the thermometer! But we are so very thankful for generous hearts.

Recently I went to a baby shower and was asked if I would make the cupcakes in lieu of a gift.
It has been over 3 years since I have made cakes because of my trigger finger repair, and frankly, I would so much rather spend time on making cards and holding classes.
 Of course, I had to make some thank you cards for the new mommy to send out to her other guests
I used a retired stamp called Baby Bumblebee and teamed it up with Daisy Lane Stamp Set and Medium Daisy Punch, and our new Rococo Rose card stock and Ink from our 2019-2021 In Color Collection. All made in the same size as our note cards (7" x 5" - Scored at 3-1/2") so that I could use the envelopes. Then I took the note card and cut it down to 3-1/4" x 4-3/4" for the front and one for the inside. The stem is stamped in Garden Green from the Delightful Daisy Stamp Set

Everyone who places an ONLINE ORDER  *cannot be combined with a free class offer*(minimum $50) during the month of November will receive TOILE TIDINGS GLITTER ENAMEL DOTS
