Cards for Sale

I have friends from my Killeen Retired School Employees organization who are "mad" at me ... there weren't enough cards to go around at the Annual Auction on November 8, and "shame on me" I didn't make any cards for the SENIORS STILL CAN craft show last weekend.  So here goes ... for my retiree friends, a SPECIAL OFFER!  Packs of 5 handmade cards for $7.50 (includes envelopes)  - from that $7.50, I will make a $1.00 donation to KRSE scholarship and book fund!   Each of the 5 cards will be handmade and different.  Packs may include these cards OR similar ones.

We're making plans ...

 We're already making plans for 2011! 
We're doing a SWAP book, a RECIPE BOOK!

In January, we will create the cover at TECH Squad (plus work on Scor-pal Design Line book, and start our Ink Sample book.) The book will hold 6 x 6 page protectors.  I was able to get 10 packs of the page protectors at HL last week when they were on sale.   Participants may purchase them from me at my cost ($2.16 per pack of 10) when they need them. My best guess is we will each need 2 packs!  I plan to re-stock when they are on sale again!

RECIPES for the book will be due every other month, beginning at February TECH. If you join the swap (you don't have to, but we hope you will!) you will be expected to complete all six of the recipes, and make sure they are delivered on or by TECH Squad day – 2nd Tuesday of each month. You will make the same 6 x 6 recipe card for all of the participants in the swap. (If there are 5 participants, we make 5 cards each time!) poki will design the divider card for appetizers, and have it ready when you make your books in January!  The other 5 divider cards will need volunteer designers!  Your recipe/divider card can be done with paper, hybrid (digi & paper mix) or all digital, whatever suits your fancy!
     February - Appetizers
     April - Salads
     June - Vegetables
     August - Main Dishes
     October - Soups
     December - Desserts

Just for fun I thought it might be nice to host a dinner and have each participant cook one of their recipe contributions.  (We'll have to decide which category each one will do, so we don't end up with only DESSERTS! Yummy, but ...)   We'll talk more about that as we get closer to the end of 2011!
