Workshop for Tammy - Crop for a Cause

As mentioned earlier the cause for the Mother's Day crop was yet to be determined and as always almost on the 11th hour I am shown someone who will really appreciate our help.  Being in Sydney last week it was lovely also to actually spend a little time with this gorgeous lady too.  If only in a class.  So yes we are going to be holding this fundraisr for one of our fellow scrapbookers. 

Tammy Hawke has been diagnosed with an extremely large tumor/cyst. At first it was thought to be only a large cyst 24cmx17cmx13cm but further investigation has shown that there is also a cancerous tumor growing in it as well. As such Tammy will undergo an operation to remove not only the mass but a full hysterectomy and part of her stomach. This is what we know she will loose, dependent upon what they find there may be more.

Any of us who know Tammy know she is going in optimistic and fighting, this women doesn’t know how not to be optimistic, Tammy is the first person people turn to when they need a friend, would be the first to put her hand up to help someone, even if she doesn’t know them, the first to help the last to leave at crops, nothing is too much for her to do. Tammy doesn’t have private insurance and although her specialist has offered to cut his fee considerably, but she will be looking at quite a bit of out of pocket expenses and this is where we come in. Any funds we are able to raise mean one less dollar she has to worry about finding. The world needs more people like Tammy and we should let these people know how special they really are and I am hoping by helping her in this fashion she will realize the esteem in which she is held. It’s hard for Tammy to accept help, it’s usually her doing the helping, so please if you can support us in some way that will help ease one problem for her.
If you can't make it to Crop for a Cause here in Geelong - 4th May. 
Highland Scrapping in Mossvale, NSW will also be running a workshop and a fundraising day on the 20th April.
If you can't make it to either of these day and would still love to support her in some way then you can download the registration form on this site and deposit a donation into the bank account listed.  If you do this can you please email me and let me know that this is a donation separate to registering for the crop.
Thanks again girls for you love and support.  YOu scrapping ladies are soooo generous.

A Little bit of love for Leanne

THANK YOU  to everyone who came and supported our Mother’s Day crop.  We had 80 ladies (including my little poppet and friends) and raised over $2000 for Leanne and her family.  Right at the moment her little girl is going through another round of chemo and would really appreciate all our prayers for a miracle right now.  Huge thanks for the support from the girls who come down from Ballarat (Megan, Melissa and Brooke) and also Kylie from Lancefield. 
Another awesome effort too was made by everyone who sacrificed a little of their time during the day and scrapped a photo of Daniel for his mum.  Daniel is one of the little boys who died from an asthma attack the other week. 
IMG_1832Not only did we manage  to scrap ALL the photos we were given but a couple of other little gifts were made also.  A special thank you goes to Diane Rowe not only for getting the photos for us but also taking that little extra time and making a frame and also to Sandy Oliver who scrapped a photos display as well.

Congrats to Shelley who won the Sizzix Big Shot and to Leonie who scored the signed  Tim Holtz book.  I know there were a few of you who were after that.  If you are in my classes in Brisbane I have another one to give away.
Thanks to all the girls who helped set up and stayed behind to help clean up.  Its a little part of the day that goes unnoticed but couldn’t do it without you.
Thanks again to the Winters for the most awesome food, it was great again.
An lastly i could let the day go without saying a huge thanks to Chez who came and hopefully inspired us all to keep doing the little things we do for others. (have you all worked out what your talent or gifts are yet???)   To us it may only seem small but to the person receiving it – you may never know how much it meant.


Will let you all know as soon as i have a date for the next one.
