Welcome Claire!

I made this welcome set of letters for the NC Scrapbook Crops and Retreats auction for Camp Tekoa!!  How exciting that the vendors were able to raise $1750 for the family camper's weekend.  I am getting ready for the next auction, Close To My Heart's charity, Operation Smile!

The Idea Book is Just That!!!

I am a vendor at all of the NC Scrapbook Crops and Retreats.  Every retreat the vendors choose a charity to support.  This event in Wilkesboro was for camp Tekoa in Hendersonville, NC for mentally challenged adults and children.  They have a family weekend so that family members get a chance to just relax while their "camper" family are involved in a variety of activities.  I totally took this idea from the CTMH Spring 2013 Idea Book and it sold for over $100!!  Whoop Whoop for CTMH.  We raised $1750 for camp Tekoa and sent 20 campers to the Family Weekend.  NC Scrapbook Retreats & Crops is not just about preserving family memories but about helping where we can.  I am so honored to be part of such a special group.  ANNNDDDDD... Our next auction is mine - Close to My Heart and Operation Smile.  I can't wait to see what we can do for these children.
