THANK YOU ladies for a wonderful day

The money has been counted and the official amount raised for Child Wise was $2046.75. Thank you everyone for all your support.
I would like to thank a few people for their amazing effort to make the day possible:

Firstly a HUGE thank you to Melody from The Body Shop @ Home for working ALL day at The Beauty Bar and raising a massive $275.........I can not thank you enough Mel for all your hard work and generosity.

If you love Body Shop products (and seriously who doesn't?) then contact Melody on 0410668105 and book a party. Melody has told me that she will donate $30 to Child Wise for every party booked from the fundraiser, so make sure you tell Melody that you meet her at the fundraiser.

Secondly I would like to thank Michelle from Scrapbook Divas for doing a wonderful job with the shop again this year. If you enjoyed our fundraiser crop why not join us each month for a casual crop day @ Edgeworth Bowling Club? visit Michelle's website and sign up for the newsletter so you know when all the crop days are.....we would love to see you there.

Thirdly thanks to the ladies at Embelles for there amazing generosity in donating so many great prizes. Check out the girls blog here and see what they are up to......they always have something amazing happening
finally i would like to thank my amazing helpers:

thanks Nat for helping us with the lolly bar and also running a very successful make and take

thank you to Reg for helping with everything and listening to me when it all became to much and i needed to whinge like a 2 year old

I am bursting with excitment

Hi Ladies

the planning and preparation is now in full swing. Regina and I spent the day together planning and preparing yesterday and we have a fun surprise for you all but you will have to wait till the day to learn more

The lovely Natalie will be doing a make and take on the day for a gold coin donation. Nat will be teaching us all how to make those wonderful hat pins that seem to be popping up on projects everywhere at the moment. I for one will be first in line to take part. Thanks Nat for your time to make this happen

Yesterday i received a wonderful email from Miss Lizzy at Embellies. The girls at Embellies are donating seats in some of their up coming workshops this year for us to raffle. How amazingly generous is that? To see what the Embellies girls are up to go here

This year we are going to try something new and exciting. We are going to have a Beauty Bar available on the day. The totally AWESOME Melody from The Body Shop @ Home will be doing mini facials for just $10 each, she will also be doing hand massage, soak, cleanse exfoliate and moisture massage (using something that soaks in well so that you can go straight back scrapping also for just $10. Now here is where it gets even more amazing, every cent raised from the Beauty Bar goes straight to Child Wise AND if you take part in a mini facial or hand massage you go in the draw to win an awesome Body Shop prize!!!

Michelle at Scrapbook Divas tell me she has some awesome prizes to donate and she will reveal all very soon

don't forget ladies payment is due before the day and can be done so by going here

looking forward to see you all in two very short weeks

The lovely Natalie is working on a fun make and take which i am very excited about and I for one will be taking part in this. Hope to be able to reveal more very soon

well its not long now and i have to say i am very nervous and excited all at the same time

i just wanted to mention some very kind ladies who are helping out by making donations towards our raffles on the day. Alex is wanting to donate some stamp sets and you can learn more about Alex and the stamps by going here Thank you Alex :)

The Body Shop has been wonderful by agreeing to donate some baskets of goodness, who doesn't love body shop products??

And do not forget about Michelle at Scrapbook Divas who is coming back this year to be our shop...thank you Michelle for your continued support, you can find Michelle's website by going here

I have been asked a few times if we are having classes at this event and sadly the answer is NO. Our usual wonderful teachers deserve a day where they can come and scrap and enjoy the day along with the rest of us. I am planning on holding yet another Crop day later in the year and my fingers are crossed that the lovely Jen and Marion will teach classes at this event for us

Well it's back to planning for me right now, i hope to be back soon with some exciting news

hi ladies

hope you all had a great Christmas and now have the time to scrap all those photos you took on Christmas Day.

I have a some news about the big day which is not that far away....ahhhhhh!!!!

Seats are filling fast, we have the room more than half full already, so if you or your friends are thinking about joining us at Edgeworth Bowling Club on 19.2.11 you had better get in quick so as not to miss out. Numbers are limited.

 Michelle from Scrapbook Divas is coming back as our shop. You should head on over to as Michelle has a big sale on at the moment, lots of great bargains to be found
Thanks Michelle for once again supporting our fundraising efforts
 The Body Shop has pledged to donate 3 gift baskets for our exciting cause who doesn't like The Body Shop??? In recent months i have become addicted to a few of  The Body Shop products.
If you are interested in looking at what The Body Shop has in store the 2 Newcastle stores are located at Kotara and Charlestown. If you are anything like me you will not be able to leave the store empty handed.
Thank you to The Body Shop for their generous support.

this year will be receiving payments online, yes that's right no need to go out and get a cheque made out and then find the time to post it off to me. If you go here you can pay your $20 entry fee. when you make the payment i ask you leave your name in the comments and the amount of people you will be paying for. If you could also email me to say payment has been made. How easy is that? Payments can be made anytime.

I will be back soon with more updates
