I spent the better part of the day setting up this Christmas tree and display for the PCMC Festival of Trees. It's a fund raiser for our local children's hospital, Primary Children's, and every dime raised goes to pay hospital bills for charity care. There are no administration costs.
The ornaments are ideas I found on Pinterest, with a bit of theme tweaking.
This year the theme was Peterpan.
The ladies in my service group, 'We Can' did the ornaments ...
At our monthly meetings. This one took one lady 2 hours to produce, after our meeting I tried to beat her time. It took me two hours too. That's why there are exactly 2 on the tree!
Everyone's favorite were these peeking Tink in a lantern ornaments
My friend Joanne donated 3 Tinks to the effort!
Of course I managed to work some banners into the decor!!
Johns bed. My friend LaVern made and donated the darling quilts and matching pillowcases!
Here's Tink number three reading one of the half dozen copies of Peter Pan ... My friend Carolyn donated half of the books!
... and here's the girls who helped me make it happen!!
I'd also like to thank my hubs for putting the beds together, assembling the tree and framing the window!! He's the best.
It was craft day again today ... And very little makes me happier than crafting with friends. We are making smash book pages to share with each other for a Christmas book this year. This page is Joanne's.
We really dig in and spread out. We tell stories and share embellishments! Jann hosted us again, and her imaginative decor sparks wonderful creativity!
Jann did these two pages ... Who knew digging through scrabble letters for elusive 'K's could be so much fun!!
We are saving space on half our pages to add our favorite holiday photos!
And we have chosen to use a vintage theme!
These are my two pages...
I thought I'd share our inspiration. Jann and her sister-in-law Laurie used the share method to make this Halloween smash book ....
It's not hard to see why both Jann and I were enchanted ...
These girls are just amazing.
Laurie will be contributing pages to this project too!
We will meet her next month when we get together to share pages and make our covers!
So much fun!
And I'm learning so much from these talented girls!
Thanks for coming along on yet another crafting adventure!!
