The winners are....

Hey everyone! Beth and Laura are the winners of the Easter/spring/summer canvases. Congrats girls! Email me with what you would theme you would like and colors, etc.

Sorry I have beenout of commission for a couple days. I am planning a huge golf fundraiser in Madison, WI for Teen Intervention. I am very passionate about this cause to help teens from at risk behaviors since it has hit close to home with my oldest daughter who is now getting the help she needs in a out of state residential treatment center. There was a time when I wouldn't have even shared that with anyone b/c I would have been embarrassed. But you know how God works in mysterious ways. This has been a blessing in disguise. What an incredible (and extremely hard) journey this has been for our entire family. Drugs, alcohol, and other high risk behaviors have no prejudices--they go after anybody who will embrace them. Soon on the T.I. website there will be a place to sign up for the tournament and sponsor a hole if you would like. We are officializing the date and place. Looks lik ie will be on June 2nd. Pray for sunny and 70.

I am also planning a 12 hour scrap-a-thon here in Madison. It will be May 26th. I didn't know what else to call it besides a scrap-a-thon but anyone is more than welcome to do whatever they want artistiiaclly there. It will be at the Hilton Garden Hotel in Middleton, WI. The nice thing about that is it is literally right next to Archivers (where I work), so if you run out of anything you can hop right over. This is going to be a private fundraiser for my daughter. I am going to put it into a scholarship fund for her tuition. Most insurances do not cover 24/7 residential treatment centers. They would rather just do a "quick fix". I will stop talking b/c I could definitely get on a soap box about that. If you are interested in signing up please shoot me an email. It will be apporximately $50/person which will include food, snacks, door prizes, and other wonderful things I'm trying to work out.

Thank you again, and I will announce the winners of the card idea contest on Monday. So if you have any ideas, pass them along quickly!
