Calling All Crafters!

I love being able to use my "craftiness" to help someone else, and I know many of you do too--that's why I'm writing this post.  

Deanna, a Craftster friend of mine (she's known there as bunny1kenobi ), is looking for crafted donations for a silent auction to be held August 3rd in Canada.  The money that's raised will benefit Deanna's cousin Lauri, who is fighting cancer, because her treatment is not covered by insurance. 

You can find a Facebook page about this cause, created by Lauri's daughter Candace (who is spearheading this effort), HERE.

If you would be able to make and send something for the auction, please contact Deanna at for the mailing address.  If you will be mailing your crafts from outside Canada, remember to allow extra time for the package to arrive before August 3rd (it usually takes about 2 weeks from the U.S.)  

If you send something, I would love to hear about it in the comment section, below.  And if you send me a picture of what you make, I will post it on this blog.

I will be sending these two zippered totes for the silent auction.  I hope this fund-raiser will be a huge success!
