I love freebies...especially when the item goes right along the lines of a project I`m working on.
The other day on the way to the store I stumbled upon this freebie sitting at the end of a driveway. What a sweet little table set! Now I` m not really in need of any more patio furniture (thus my husbands *sigh* as I drove up with this in the back of the truck)...but can`t you just see these painted white, antiqued, new fabric cushions and a sweet little fabric table cloth! Perhaps a vase of fresh flowers and an adorable little photo album with photos of Kandy Kisses designs. Yep...you got it...after a fun little makeover, this little number is headed right to my commercial booth in July!
So heres a little treat for YOU. Head on over to my website for a customer appreciation sale. Enter the code thanks to receive 10% off your total order!
Since my 4-H sewing girls finished their projects today and are heading to fashion review on Saturday...I thought I`d take a second to put a plug in for 4-H.
If you`re looking for a wonderful organization with endless opportunities for your kids...4-H is the place for you to be. And best of all...it is totally affordable. To sign up there is usually a $7 to $14 insurance fee for the year...and THAT IS ABOUT IT. Yes...for the YEAR. I`ve had my kids in activities and sports that range from $45 to $100 per month....its so hard....especially if you have more than 1 child.
Now alot of people are under the impression that 4-H is for animal projects...NOT SO! Yes, there are the beef, swine, sheep etc projects. But there are hundreds of other projects that are offered. It all depends on whether there is a volunteer to lead the project! (maybe YOU...LOL) Some of the fun projects my kids have taken part in are...sewing (of course) arts and crafts, entomology, rocketry, science, cooking, community service, dog grooming, gardening, child care...the list is SO LONG. In addition to the projects there are endless opportunities for demonstrations, speeches, essays, scholarships, outings ..... that are so educational and so good for acquiring "life skills".
Good grief...all for about $14 per YEAR! Come on now.....thats ALMOST a freebie!
Okay....so head out to your local club and check it out. The 4-H year is usually Sept through June. As I mentioned in a previous post...I`m the sewing leader for our local club. My girls made pajama pants for their projects this year and will be modeling them on Sat. GOOD LUCK GIRLS!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
