Garage Sale Fundraiser

Dear Crafting friends;
The following was sent to me to pass on to anyone in our papercrafting community.  We all know that when a fellow crafter is in need of help, there are no better people to come together than crafters!  If you are able to contribute, fabulous;  if you are able to help out by attending the garage sale, tremendous!  If you are able to help out by doing both, stupendous!  Thoughts of healing, health and happiness going out to Stephanie!
Hello ladies.

We have planned another fund raiser for our scrap booking, card making friend, Stephanie, to help defray some of the outstanding costs of the Multiple Sclerosis liberation therapy she received.

We are hoping that you will help us by donating your unwanted, unused, good condition items that we could sell at a garage sale. Remember, it  does not have to be scrapbook or card related but those items will be welcomed too. We'll take anything that will bring in $$$$.

WHAT:        garage sale fund raiser
WHEN:       9 a.m. Saturday June 25th until 1 pm ----  EARLY BIRDS PAY DOUBLE.
WHERE:    247 Cadillac, off Tillicum at Linda G's driveway
WHY:          fund raiser to reduce outstanding costs of MS liberation therapy.

We would appreciate it if you  could bring your donated  items to Linda G's on Friday 24, after 12 noon so that we could have everything set up for early Saturday morning.

If anyone has a  table they could spare for the day, we'd appreciate it if you'd let us use it too. Please put your name on it.

This is an all round win win situation: You get rid of your unwanted, unused clutter (and make room for more stamps and papers!), we get to help our friend pay down the medical bill and, you could go home on Saturday with some newly purchased treasures.

Please e-mail me if you have any questions. (

Please feel free to forward this message to everyone you know to ask if they have any donations and to ask if they'd come out and support us.
We hope to see you either Friday with your donations and/or Saturday for your support. Unsold items will be donated to a worthy cause.

A really BIG thank you all in advance for your support.

Linda G and Linda R

Hello Scrapping and Stamping friends!

This evening and into the wee hours of the morning (yes, until 1:45am), my friend Nigel and I designed the logo for my business.  Let me know what you think!  You don't know how excited I was to create this.  This is my version....and Nigel made his version.  It was quite hilarious as it was like we were in a designing contest!

Well, from here on in, you will see this your e-mails, on documents that I produce, on business cards, labels....and the list goes on.

If you are on my e-mail distribution list, there will be a complete document of all of the product I have in stock.  Thank you to all of my members who joined me today.  They had the first sneak peeks at the new product arrivals.  Although the product was minimal, the response was good and the best part is that there is more on the way.

Happy crafting (and designing too)!
