The Card-a Thon plans are in full swing...and people are starting to ask about it..so I thought I'd post about it here....to let you all know what's happening..what it's all about..and how you can donate if you wish...
I have been quietly working on this Card-a-Thon for a few months now....and it's moving forward...taking shape..and looking more and more like what I dream it to be...
Here's what it's all about:
The Card-a-Thon will be a one day event (Fall '09..Spring '10..and hopefully...every Spring and Fall thereafter)The Fall date is October 10th, 2009
This will be a card making event...set-up like an all day crop/wokshop...opened to any and all who would like to participate..
no fee to join in...
Volunteers/participants will work in teams of 6 card makers (volunteer participants of all ages) set up and working assembly line style on a particular card...each team member will have a task to do towards completion of that card...each team will make a particular card for one hour..after each hour..the card will change..
Volunteers can be a part of this event for the entire day...part of the day...come alone..or bring their own team...
In other words..we will be cranking the cards out that day!
The fall cards will be sent to US soldiers...(domestic and abroad)
The Spring 2010 cards will be given to a local hospital
SO many donations are needed...anything and everything for card making...
There is a BIG need for a wide asst of card making supplies...
all things SELF ADHESIVE..for easy embellishing
brads..(not eyelets..have gazoodles of them already)
mat sized card stock
mat sized prints
OR..full size cs and prints (i will cut them down)
primas or other flowers
prescored A2 cards and envies
ink pads..full size or spots
all sorts of embellishments suitable for cards
cuttle bugged card fronts
There is a HUGE need for:
**Self adhesive embellishments, gems etc
**images that already colored....painted etc...and punched out or nestied.... and matted ....and ready to roll...
**images that are all ink..no coloring needed..punched out/nestied and matted and ready to roll
Anything that you may have and would like to pass on....would be appreciated.
and can be mailed directly to me...
so when you clean out and reorganize your craft space...please consider donating the things that you have not...and will not use...
Supplies that are not completely used at the Fall event will be stored and held for use at the Spring event..and so on.......for all future events.
If you would like to make a donation, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a local and would like to be part of the Card-a-Thon, please email me as well.
With your help ...whether it be participation in the event..or a donation that you send in....these Card-a -Thons have the potential to be a tremendous success!
