Harvest for Hunger Contribution

Shew ... have I been busy!!!

Here's the story ...


Most of you know that my DH is soon to be off work for awhile having a stem cell transplant. Well, in the meantime he's feeling pretty good and has been going into the office everyday. Last week one day he mentioned to me that his company, in support of Harvest for Hunger, was setting up different tables/booths throughout the building, selling baked goods, jewelry, etc. and he thought he would, as he put it "put me to work!" He thought I could make up boxed sets of cards to sell, similar to the ones I have at my sister's shop, and that would be our contribution to the cause.





HE, of course, will NOT be the one sitting behind the table selling my creations ... (not his cup of tea) ... but he did pitch the idea to one of the ladies in the office and showed her samples of my cards and she was THRILLED about the idea. Evidentally she's not a crafter because she didn't understand at first that I "made these myself" ... after a little explaining, she was REALLY excited and said YES, I'll do this!!! At that point, I had provided him with a three boxed sets for her to see ...



WELL ... he tells me FRIDAY night that he needs 20 boxes of cards (that's another 102 cards YIKES!!) to take into the office by Monday!!! Guess what I've been doing all weekend ... LOL!!




She is also going to take orders for anyone who wants to purchase a personalized monogrammed set which will be made & delivered later. (This will give me something to do while I'm sitting at the Cleveland Clinic ...) The sets consist of either ALL thank-you cards, ALL notecards or three of each. A box of 6 will sell for $10 and again ... all monies will be contributed to the Harvest for Hunger. That means that if all 20 sets sell, our contribution will be $200 ... not too shabby! And of course the money from any ordered sets will also be contributed.




I've kept the layout pretty much the same on all sets (mass production) ... but each set is also different in color, image, and border. You can click on any of the photos if you'd like a closer view. Okay ... I'm tired now ... going to go watch a little TV with DH then it's off to bed!!! Thanks so much for stopping by today ... hope you had a wonderful weekend!!

  4. Hmm, I seem to remember telling you a few posts back that you would soon be in the card-making business! It's wonderful that your DH drafted you into such a great cause, and you make him proud! All of these sets are beautiful, Dar. My fav is prolly the black/white/red but I'm sure they will all sell! You'll be taking orders and spending many more weekends like this one! Wish I lived close enough to help, i.e. laugh together while we create!
