Default Are you still wanting supplies?

Do you still need those things on your wish list?

I know it's that time of year that many of you are purging your crafting supplies that you no longer need or want. So, I am offering up a win-win suggestion. "The You Matter Project".

As some of you already know I am the founder of "The You Matter" card project here in upstate NY that makes cards for abused women and children. In May of this year we will be entering into our 8th year of the project. It's been a long hard journey for me, but I am so elated that something so horrific in my life has turned into something so enriching to so many people!

Up until 2014 - 2015, I had made most of the cards myself and personally supplied the few supplies we had. Then in July of 2015, "The You Matter Project" was honored to be the featured group for SplitCoast Stampers "Cards for a Cause". To our delight, we received a whopping 982 beautiful handmade cards from generous crafter's all over the world!!!

Because of this, the interest of those we help is ever increasing. All donations for the "You Matter Project" will be used for the storage of and/or making of cards by and for those who are helped by the project. I have a room specifically dedicated for items that people graciously donate for the "You Matter Project". Sometimes the items will be used in the form of group classes and sometimes they will simply be used by a single person or two who just needs a quite safe place to express their emotions through art.

Due to the limited financial situations of most of those that are helped by our project, and because of what we are trying to do with the project by empowering people, we do NOT charge anything to those who use the items. So, I am humbly asking all of you to PLEASE help us build our stash with your unwanted and extra items. I know that anything you could send to the project, no matter how small you think it is, would mean the world to those we serve.

Thank you for your consideration to Pay-It-Forward for a wonderful project!
For those of you wanting to send donations of cards, de-stash items, etc. to help "The you Matter Project", here is the address you can send them to:


"The You Matter Project"

Question Stamping Supplies

Hi Christi -

I am getting ready to retire and will be cleaning out a lot of items - esp. as my interests have gone more toward art journaling. I have lots of DP and embellishments that while dated - think Prima flowers - could still be usable. Would you be interested in these items? Also, I have some old issues of Papercrafts magazines that I've always saved for inspiration - would the ladies like to look through them for ideas?

I won't be offended if you aren't interested, so please just let me know - thanks

Jen

That cool Sweatshirt stamp and 3" zippers from Too Much Fun Stamps
More decoupage sheets that punch apart and layer
Hi Linda,

Embossed images sometimes makes the difference of whether or not some of our clients can color them.

As for the Sweatshirt stamp and the mini zippers from Too Much Fun Stamps.... I personally bought the stamp and some mini zippers for the teens. They love it! It's a rather large stamp though. You can stamp it on either plain cardstock or a heavier dsp if you want a patterned sweatshirt. Then when you cut it out and fold it, it makes a sweatshirt that you can either add the mini zippers to the front of it or you can add the mini buttons. They are really cute. If you check out their website, they show examples.

The decoupage sheets are sheets of a pre-colored image. They have numbered parts that you cut or punch out and layer to make the image 3-D. Sometimes they come as a free gift in the UK crafting magazines and such.

Since that post is only a month old, I'm assuming it's pretty current, right?

A big Thank You goes out to the person who sent the large priority box of various crafting goodies from Woodburn, IN 46797. There was no name. so I'm not sure who you are, but we sure do appreciate everything that you sent and will put it all to good use. May God Bless You!

Hi Everyone,
I want to share some news with you all... I am FINALLY moving back to the good 'ol Southwest!!! This is something that I have wanted to do so badly for many years due to health reasons. So, it's a very good thing for me.

What does that mean for the You Matter Project here in New York? Well, I won't be running the program here anymore. So, I won't be continuing with this thread. However, I feel that I have established a wonderful program that will continue to florish without me. I have worked with others and taught them everything I know...along with a few of them teaching me a thing or two. lol

I want to say a huge, heartfelt, and humble THANK YOU to each of you who have helped to support my You Matter Project here in New York. Through your generosity and kindness you have touched so many lives in ways I can't even begin to describe. It has been such a joy and pleasure for me to have founded and ran this project for so many years. Even though I will be leaving New York, I will take many fond memories with me and know that my time here has enriched many lives... including my own.

So Thank You my dear friends and fellow crafters. Together we have left our mark of letting many know that, YOU MATTER!!!

May God Bless each and every one of you.

Much Love & Many Huggles,
Christi

I was just checking in here because I have a big box of goodies to send you. Saw your posting that you will no longer be involved with this project. Is someone else continuing your project that I could send it to? Happy that you are able to move back to the southwest ....I am sure your project group will miss you! Best of luck.....

I hope we get new contact information! I emailed with Christi the day before she posted her last one about leaving asking if they would like a Cuttlebug (in addition to the other goodies I'm sending) and she said yes, they would love it. I have two big boxes of things to send. I've sent a few PM's but haven't heard back. I tried finding some new contact information online but had no luck. If anyone finds out if this project is still in place, please let us know! Sounds like there are some goodies ready to head their way from a handful of people! This project was so amazing, I hope it's still going strong!

I know many of us have been trying to figure out where to send donations to now that we are unable to reach anyone at the You Matter Project. I sent SCS an email to see how to promote this organization below that I am donating to now which also works with Abused Women & Children in Chicago. It is called Connections For Abused Women and Their Children. I've contacted their director and they would love our donations for the kids and the mom's! Below is the website for you to check out and I've included the shipping address for your donations if you are interested. They can also send to you an acknowledgement letter for you to use for tax purposes. I've got a box ready to go for them already!

PS - They also post wish lists. Right now it's a small list... Hopefully with our purging & de-stashing donations we will expose them to the paper crafting world too!!! : ) On their website under wish lists it says:

Craft sets, Paint and paint brushes, Jewelry-making sets, Sewing kits

I've offered to do free card classes to help spread the love for card making to this organization too. If they accept, I know I will make sure your goodies go to good use!!!

Hello fellow crafters,

Well, I went down south over this past month and I have decided that I am NOT going to be moving down there. So, I will be staying right here in NY and I am going to be going back to what I enjoy... The You Matter Project! Yay!

I have received a couple of packages since I was away. But, my laptop got broken during my travel so it's in the shop getting worked on. Should be about a week or so. I will post more when I get it back. Trying to do things from my cell phone isn't as easy for me. lol

At any rate, I'm home and the original address is still good.

Crafty Huggles,
Christi

Hi Everyone, As promised, I said I would post the "Thank You's" for the packages that came while I was away. (YAY for having my computer back today! Boy, have I missed it!!!)

Heartfelt, Humble, and overdue Thank You's go out to:

Jeanette (Scrapjanny) for her extra large padded envelope full of a variety of goodies.

Angie Hudson (AuntAngie) ??? for her package of Blending Stumps and sandpaper thingy.

Thank you both so very much for your generosity and kindness to The You Matter Project. It sure does feel good to be back home and with the project where I belong. God Bless!

Crafty Huggles,
Christi

Good to know you're back. I'll start getting a box ready to mail. I had a pile of stuff I was building up to ship to you before I thought you were leaving. I'll be darned if I remember what happened to it. I'm sure it will be faster for me to just start a new pile. lol

I came across this post only yesterday, and tomorrow I will ship out three boxes. It seems that it was meant to be. I began gathering these items a couple of weeks ago, not knowing who would get them, but that it needed to be a good cause and hopefully one that appreciates stamping/cardmaking. This one definitely fits the bill. For future contributions, I will keep the wishlist in mind. God bless you...

Hi Everyone,
The You Matter Project has a couple of new heartfelt THANK YOU's to give out....

From our "Secret Gifter" in Woodburn, IN... We want to thank you for the large priority box filled with lots of stamps and dies. We loved the way you packaged them in ziplocks to keep the matching stamps and dies together. There sure are some cutes in this box!


From Lucy Rubin (a.k.a. AScrapofKindness)... We received a whopping 4 priority boxes filled to the brim!!! Thank you so very much for the large variety of stamps, dies, embossing folders, flowers, and for the WRMK stamp positioner! That was something from our Dream Wishlist and the participants are truly loving it! The way you wrapped the items in paper with ribbon was great! The participants said that it felt like opening up Christmas presents in July! I guess you gave new meaning to "Christmas in July" for all of us here. We are going to be utilizing your brown packing/wrapping paper for a project and the ribbons you tied them with have already been pressed for yet another project.

To both of you, please accept our humbly and greatful Thank You's. May God Bless you both in all of your crafting endeavors.

Crafty Huggles,
Christi
