Charitable causes

Time flies I have discovered, before you realise it Poof! it is gone...So Easter has been and gone, the weather was glorious and it was so nice to relax at home with the family.
We went to an Ovarian Cancer fundraiser at the Manor Farm Barn on Saturday. One of the staff, Craig volunteered to be waxed for £10 a strip... he was in a bad way...
and for all his bravery he ended up looking like this


 - I would not recommend getting waxed by anything other than a qualified waxer! So sore!!!!
I joined in a swap in the Latest Trends in Mixed Media Yahoo group, my 1st for a while... had to make an ATC which had to have handwriting and ribbon, here is what I created




More goodies to add to the Art Is...You auction
Mind the Gap tin sign...love this
And one of the Brit items was Liberty fabrics so here are a few lots....
 These 2 packets have 10 assorted 12 x 12 Liberty fabric pieces
 2 random pieces


and the 3 smaller pieces have what it says on the label, "30 Liberty scraps" so hopefully they will go towards boosting the funds for the Charity Sarah's House a worthy cause.

I think I have everything sorted now for the donations to the Charity, I now need to work on swap items...
So instead of staying on here, I will head off to my art room.
Have fun and enjoy whatever you have to do today xxx
