Donated Scrapbooks to Siteman Cancer Center

I enlisted my friends on Life on The Scrap Beach to make scrapbooks to donate. My plan was to get 25 mini albums to donate to Siteman Cancer Center. They are distributing to their patients. Kathy was so excited to receive al the books. They were amazing. I showed them off to all my friends prior to donating them. LOL I got rave reviews on each and every book. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time and energy it took to make very special books for the hospital. I plan to make this an annual project. Anyone who would like to make mini albums please leave a comment. It was so rewarding doing this project. The picture is Kathy at the hospital with the albums.

Kimswick Strawberry Festival

Hi everyone,
My friend Joann and I decided to go to a LSS about 30 miles from St Louis in Kimswick MO. We get to Kimswick only to find cars everywhere. It was the annual Strawberry Festival. LOL We had to park about 5 blocks from the Festival. Part of the draw going to Kimswick is to eat at the Blue Owl. They had a 2.5 hour wait so we decided to eat at the Sweet Shop. The food was delicious. They had a gift shop with sock moneys. Then we walked to The Stamp Pad to shop for crafting and stamp supplies. Leanne tries to carry products all the local stores don't carry. It's always fun shopping there. After that we headed home. I was drinking tea in the car, low and behold the McDonalds cup lid came off and I dumped all over me and the car. LOL We made one more stop to Joanns. I shopped with wet paints. LOL  Here are some pictures from out adventure.

Happy crafting,


Stamp Camp at Joann's

Hi everyone,

Once a month I go to Stamp Camp at joann Huber's house. Joann has been a Stapmin Up Representative for over 10 years. She designed 5 cards (we make 2 of each), provides beverages and snacks. It is always a fun evening. I'm posting pictures of our Stamp Camp last Friday, June 1, 2012.

Thanks for looking.

Sock Monkey with knit cap

I have to go to Siteman Cancer Center At Barnes Hospital for an infusion every month for Rheumatoid Arthritis. They have an art room that is amazing for patients and family. I discovered it about 3 years ago. Yesterday I went in before my infusion and Sara (Art Therapist) asked me if I wanted to make a sock monkey. I was so excited. I just love sock monkeys. I'm posting a picture of me with the monkey and knit cap I made. We only had 2 hours so Sara did most of the sewing but I did all the stuffing. LOL I had fun using the nifty knitter by provo craft to knit the cap. I usually always use my dogs for my avatars so here is a rare picture of me.
