getting a cardmaking setup for the senior/disabled
i am looking for supplies for them which can be kept on site.

looking for things that you just dont want anymore and would be willing to donate to the elderly/disabled...i am trying to start a cardmaking seminar thing at the local elderly/disabled home so they can make cards for theri faimilies and such...and they cannot afford a lot for supplies...i am trying to get whatever i can get together for them...and i was hoping some of the peeps on here at scs would be able to help...i was thinking of charging for some supplies so it could continue on like once a month but many are on such strict incomes they can only afford their pills and dr copays...which leaves the cost to me and i can do some but its a lot if 20 ppl come and make 5 cards a month....am looking for stamps that if they get dirty filthy won't matter/cs/ink/cleaners etc etc....but will matter to the ppl making the cards for their families(may be a treasured memento to someone if their grandpa passes)...plmk if you have any type of things you can just give away to them as the items will also be stored on site that are given to them.

needing many many things...plmk

I have some patterned papers, 2 sentiment stamps (for you and make a wish) and some stickers I could send.

Message me your address, please. To make the paper fit in a smaller envelope, mind if I cut it to 9 x 12 or 8 x 8? (Still big enough for cards.)

Did you get the permission to get started, Sande?

sek111sbc 03-19-2012 09:38 PM

oh yes...lol...it was just a sign up sheet....we are using the whole dining room! :)
it's unbelievable there are 43 now signed up!

Scrapninny 03-20-2012 07:40 PM

Thanks for letting me know the stuff arrived! I should have asked: Do you need envelopes too? I get a lot of printed cards from charities that I donate to. I usually toss the cards to make my own and keep the envelopes, but some are too big for my preference.

sek111sbc 03-21-2012 07:33 AM

definately need envies...one of the many needs...lol

sek111sbc 03-27-2012 09:32 AM

we are doing it the Sunday AFTER Easter...so if anyone else can help on things, it would be greatly appreciated. And there still is time to help out.

Scrapninny 03-27-2012 07:48 PM

I hope it's a hit. I have cross posted this thread to another paper crafting forum where people are in "purge" talks.

sek111sbc 03-27-2012 07:53 PM

thank you! everything will be loved til it can't be loved anymore...

and I hope its a hit too, because it could mean sooo much to a loved one...and then it can continue on from month to month...and then maybe something for them to look forward to.. :)

sek111sbc 03-27-2012 07:54 PM

and if it goes well there is still time for others to send things...because i think it will be good...

48 signups right now...

Sarge 03-27-2012 08:16 PM

I have a bunch of stuff I can contribute to such a great cause. I'll send a flat rate box full. Just send me an address when you have a minute. Sarge

sek111sbc 03-27-2012 08:29 PM

pm'd you sarge!

anything is appreciated...

still need lots of things...

embellishments are needed too...as well as a couple more ink pads...(i think there are a couple...but black would be awesome too...I am figuring a couple ink pads per table and there are 8 tables) need cleaner so we can salvage as much as possible for the next time...I will be busy cleaning I am sure...any stmaps you don't want...scissors....still in need of envies....if each person makes 5 cards...(which I am just estimating) that would be 240 envies....

I think it is going to be big and fun!

sek111sbc 03-27-2012 08:29 PM

of course cardstock and glues...glues glues...rrrr...lol

Sarge 03-29-2012 06:18 AM

Hi Sande: I sent one flat rate box yesterday that should be there by Saturday and I am mailing another this morning. The second one should get there by Monday or Tuesday via priority mail. I'll see what else I can continue to scrounge up for you. Have a great day! SARGE PS: It is supposed to be 85 degrees here in Central Florida, what's the weather way up there?

sek111sbc 03-29-2012 06:23 AM

Scrapninny 03-30-2012 08:21 PM

I have another envelope to send with 20 card envelopes in it and a handful of handmade ones from leftover papers. Also some die cut ovals for frames.

I just re-organized my scrap storage and I think I need to have a punch party in the summer and punch out lots of embellies for your group later in the year.

I'll keep looking over the weekend and ship next week.

sek111sbc 03-31-2012 07:08 AM
