We Have a Winner!

You all know that I recently did another Close To My Heart Gathering as a benefit for Deputy Shannon Key, and that I was going to do a drawing, giving one entry for every $25.00 spent (before tax/shipping). Well, with this gathering, we raised $73.43 for Deputy Key’s fund! 🙂

As promised, I asked one of Deputy Key’s children to draw the winner for the contest.

Here is Deputy Key‘s eldest daughter with me, getting ready to make the draw . . .

Rose has chosen a set of note cards for her prize, and as soon as they are completed and given to her, I will post pictures so you can see what they look like.

Stay tuned, there will be a drawing from my next gathering, later this month, as well!

All of that said, let’s get on with the news about the last winner, and pictures!

You may remember my post back in May when I told you about the online Close To My Heart gathering which was a benefit for Sheriff’s Deputy Shannon Key. Well, because of my surgery, it took a little bit longer than I anticipated to do the prize drawing and make the winner’s cards. The winner was PJ Pearson of Rio Rancho, NM, and her name was drawn b Sheriff’s Deputy Shannon Key’s daughter. I tried to get good photos of everything, but some are a little blurry, sorry about that, I will do better next time!

Preparing for Surgery and hosting an online benefit . . .

I’ve been working a bit each day at getting things in order around here, because one week from today I will be having surgery on both of my feet, and would really prefer not to have to worry about keeping up with tons of work after that. My theory is that if we can get things in order now, it will be easier for my kids to keep up with it until I’m “back on my feet”, lol!

I have extremely bad hammertoes, three on one foot, two on the other, and they will all be dealt with in one surgery, so as to avoid going under anesthesia twice, or having two surgical and two hospital co-pays.

I’m also working ahead on making cards. I have a little ministry in which I make a card every week for some ladies at church who need encouragement for one reason or another. So far, I have five ladies. I do a card for them each week, and I pray for them every day. We also have three kids at church graduating this weekend, so last night I got one of their cards done, and today I’ll work on the other two. We have one other graduation coming up, but that isn’t until the beginning of June, which is good, because I have to go buy more grad themed paper for her card. 🙂

Another thing I’m working on: for those of you who don’t know, I am a consultant for Close To My Heart (http://lorimoffit.ctmh.com), a company that produces BEAUTIFUL, high quality, easy to use products for scrapbooking and card making. I am currently hosting an online party as a benefit for Bernalillo County, NM Sheriff’s Deputy Shannon Key. He is a deacon in our church (http://www.mesabaptist.org), and is going through his second battle with brain cancer. Because it is so bad this time, it is inoperable, so the only treatment available is mostly experimental, done at Cedars-Sinei Medical Center in Los Angeles, and not covered by insurance. You can read more about Deputy Key at http://www.krqe.com/dpp/features/nm-deputy-faces-another-cancer-battle .

To help build the Shannon Key fund, I am, as I said, hosting an online Close To My Heart party. 100% of my commission from this party will go to the Key family. Some incentives for you: if your order reaches $50.00, you are eligible to purchase the May Stamp of the Month set for only $5.00. This will also make you eligible for the exclusive, only available this month, special paper pack called Dream Pop, which was created especially for National Scrapbooking Month. But wait, there’s even more! Every order that is at least $25.00 will be entered into a drawing for a set of notecards handmade by me. For every $25.00 you order, you will get one entry. If, in addition to your order, you book a party of your own, I will give you an extra entry. When the party closes, I will ask one of Deputy Key’s children to draw the winner. At that time I’ll consult the winner for their favorite colors before making their cards. 🙂 If you’d like to participate in this very worthy cause, you may order anytime between now and May 26, 2013, when the party will close. When you order from my website http://lorimoffit.ctmh.com your order will ship directly to you, and you don’t have to wait until the party closes to receive your order. I hope many of you will choose to help. Even if you aren’t a scrapbooker or card maker, I bet you know someone who is, who would LOVE to receive a gift of products to use in their hobby. Close To My Heart products are top quality, beautiful, and very easy to use. Even *I* can’t mess up when using them, lol!
