Yippee! Cover Stockings!
Yes, I’m honored to have designed the stockings (and the tree skirt that is barely peeking out from under that bounty of beautiful packages) for this year’s Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Ideas.
And oh my, Sarah Macklem’s home! Sarah (The Yellow Cape Cod) ordered 5 of my stockings last year and guess what! Yes, her home and her set of stockings are on page 100. And I have to tell you Sarah is as genuinely nice as her home is gorgeous.
Stocking The Pantry 2013
My Holiday Giving Campaign is again fighting hunger by Stocking The Pantry of Harvesters, the nationally recognized food bank in Kansas City that feeds and educates the hungry throughout NE KS and NW MO. Every stocking ordered includes a $2.50 donation to Harvesters. Through Harvesters’ amazing leverage power, every stocking results in 12+ meals (yes, incredibly they are able to turn $1 into 5 meals)! Jump on over to The Harvesters website to learn more about this incredible organization and their mission.
And check out last year’s results below: 6,137 meals!!!
Woo! Hoo! My Banners are chosen by Country Living!
Among the thousands of products submitted, my chalk cloth banners were selected to be featured as a fun, innovative product the editors would recommend to their readers.
Oh The Joy!
I am sooo very thrilled to announce our annual giving from Christmas Stockings Sales 2012 – $1227.50! Yes, that’s 491 Christmas stockings during the 2012 holidays. Every stocking sold includes a $2.50 contribution to a worthy cause. This last year we fed (and educated) the hungry through Harvesters – the food bank located in Kansas City that services NW Missouri and NE Kansas. Through amazing leveraging, they are able to provide 5 meals for every dollar donated. Quick Math: My amazing customers provided 6,137 meals! U.N.B.E.L.I.E.V.A.B.L.E!
