I found some more envelopes, so I have about 30 coming your way in various sizes. Also a spool of ribbon. It doesn't tie nicely (comes undone). But it's good if you adhere it flat.

I also punched out some shapes during my scraps clean up.

I will mail it after work tomorrow, so it won't start it's way to you until after Easter.

Take pictures of the event/creations!

am hoping if anyone has a cutting mat or an idea what to do to protect the tables?

just wondering and hoping at the last minute....I didn't think of it, but if we damage one of those tables it would be way too expensive to replace...lol

What about buying some large plastic serving trays at the dollar store or something. It could be their workspace inside the tray. (I'm assuming no exacto knife work for the elderly will be going on - just general wear and tear and chance of scratching surfaces.)

Hi Sande: Don't be nervous - you've had a wonderful idea and they are going to love it. I put my third flat rate box in the mail to you. I hope it gets there in time for your first session. I'll have to wait until I get more supplies to contribute again but you will have all my best wishes. I'll be interested to see how it goes.

OMG~IT WAS SOOOO MUCH FUN...ONLY GOT ONE GOOD PICTURE....GONNA POST IT!
THEY WANNA DO IT AGAIN...LOL

Peeps came at different times which made it a lot easier...some would stay half hour, some stayed an hour, some came and left and came again...

they were so happy! I went through a FULL 3 big boxes of supplies...

I think I will have to ask for all your help again if they want to do it again, if anyone wants to send anymore things they REALLY do appreciate them....they used up almost all the stickers, and images and I had cut like 300 cardbacks, and had like 5 left...that was a lot of people. Used all the glue and dots up so completely...I think I will say bring your own scissors and glue and I think in 2 months would be a better time thing...time to get things together and such and see where I am sitting financially...(dh is going to be laid off so it makes it a really hard time...like I came into it with some things obviously and everyone helping is what was able to pull this off)

Thanks for reporting in! I did send the second envelope, but I figured it would arrive this week. Please let me know.

I am starting a new pile too. Unfortunately, there is no flat rate shipping in Canada, so the postage is adding up. Perhaps it would work better quarterly - for donors and for you to run it.

Sorry that glue is much to heavy and bulky for me to mail from Canada. So, I hope I can help enough with the other stuff so you can save your budget for adhesives (or ask the residents to bring their own like you said).

What did you learn? What would you do differently/more/less of?

See, I said this would work! I'm so glad you had such good feedback from your crafters. I'll be happy to help out again, I can look at Mrs. Grossman's sticker web site - they usually have some great deals. If folks want to donate adhesive items, it will be cheaper to mail glue dots than bottled glue. Cheers to the SCS member Scrapninny for covering the Canadian postal fees!! Since I have access to flat rate boxes, I'll send some cardstock anad other heavy things. So sorry to hear about hubby getting laid off, we will keep him and you in our prayers. There are lots of great folks here on SCS, I'm sure you'll get help from lots of folks. Let us know when you plan your next event. SARGE

I was in my craft room yesterday with my iPod on. I have songs ranging from the 50's to current (well... maybe within the last 5 years current). I was just thinking, you should have a "crafting to the oldies" thing going on if you had ambient music to play. I have an oldies (50's to 70's) station programmed in my car. I'm sure there must be one where you are!

I have a major paper culling project going on right now and would love to give my cast-offs to someone who could use them If you are still looking for paper and such, PM me with an address and I'll start putting a flat rate box together for you. I already have a couple of ziplocs full of papers. I might have some other supplies that I don't need anymore that I could throw in as well.

I stamped with seniors for about a year and know how much they enjoyed it! It was a lot of work, had good helpers and really am glad I had that opportunity. I will send you a box in the next week or so. I have lots of stickers, papers, etc to send! Just need your address. I know this is a real blessing to the people who make these cards. Bless you!!!

Have you thought about writing to the local businesses and asking for donations? I'm thinking WalMart, Shopko, Target. You can say that anything would help but you might even want to be specific and tell them you're especially looking for donations of glue sticks, doublesided tape, or glue dots or other craft adhesives. I think all those stores have panels made up of employees who decide what donations to make to the community. They are sometimes reluctant to respond to requests for gift cards, so I think you might have more luck asking for specific items.

Well that was nice! You should ask the senior's center to write a thank-you note and send a picture of them crafting.

Do you know your next date yet?

Another brown envelope, in the mail. Mostly envelopes, some brads, die cuts and a little cardstock.
