Our theme for the week was "Back to Our Future". We had fun playing scrabble with tiles made out of cut pieces of pool noodles. (Your electric knife is the best way to cut these,) and paper hats made out of old newspapers was a real hit .Paper hat creations sure are a fun and inexpensive play. This activity is also good for multigenerational events.
Go, Mark, Go!!
Here are some of the raffle baskets that I finished putting together when I got to Montreat. All the money from these goes to help fund the scholarship auction and keep costs lower for everyone. It also adds a little bit of fun during the auction for those on a tighter budget. The theme this year centered around game show type activities. A great model for a fundraiser.
I thought I'd just go in, pick up the chair, drop off some new fabric designs for more chairs, and pick up some other frames that I had purchased and, of course, buy a bolt of fabric or two. WRONG.
I have plans for all the things I purchased (except the tents and the saddle), and besides, Judy says I'm not a hoarder. She says I'm a creative opportunist! I like that!!
The other fun thing I worked on during the week was a stole for Mark, a friend of mine. It's close to being done and I hope to finish and ship it as soon as I get home. I so enjoyed the beading and stitching. The process was created as I went along and it has just kind of emerged. We sold a custom stole at the auction so I have another one to create for Vicki by December.... now to get it done and not wait to the last minute!! Keep me on task, Vicki!!
