Every now and then I think to yourself, “I’m just NOT doing enough volunteering.” I had one of those moments a week or so ago, as I skimmed and deleted emails from my kids’ schools, each brimming with opportunities to help out.
Well. I am now on flocking duty this week (what was I thinking?)
Each morning before 7:00am, I round up willing and unwilling children and we go “flock” someone’s lawn. We return each evening to collect the required flamingo removal fee. Our family was flocked back in September and I’m happy to report that you have several removal options. We chose the payment that would put us on the “no flock” list and allow us to target the next family.
I probably didn’t need ONE MORE thing to do this week, but I have to admit that it has actually been FUN to be a part of the fundraiser. In my mind, it beats the heck out of buying a cookie dough!
I have to show-off a layout that one of my Twelve students, Veronica Norris created.
This page is inspired by the Twelve journal that students received as part of the Twelve kit (HUGE thanks to Paper Coterie for their amazing generosity!)
Veronica’s page is a 12×12 with a 6×12 companion page and it documents our journey in Twelve and our friendship.
When I saw it and read it, I was overwhelmed with gratitude for ALL of the amazing women that have come into my life because of scrapbooking.
HUGE side benefit of what we do!
And finally … I’m having a blast preparing for The Day at Doodlebug this weekend. After my lecture, we are all going to make two cards from the Create-a-Card product line (Adorable!) I am also going to announce a very FUN (ongoing) Happy Mail campaign.
More on that coming soon!
