Care Packages coming soon!

The baby drive was fairly successful, but now it's time to move on to my next project. Are you paying attention? I know I'm changing directions all the time, but it's working! Just so you know, I am STILL crocheting a gazillion hats and scarves with your donated yarn. They are just going into a trunk, to be given out NEXT winter. So if you still want to donate yarn, I'm still accepting it!
My next project, meanwhile, is to create some "care packages". I'm going to make a large amount of crocheted items that I can sell (spread the word) and with the profits, I will make care packages fro the homeless. The will include soap, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a comb. So, keep watching my blog becuase soon I will have items up for sale. REALLY CHEAP, TOO!!! I promise!!

Results of the baby drive

I held a "Baby Drive" this last weekend, within my neighborhood. I initially tried to place flyers on the community's mailbox. Those got torn off. So then I shoved the flyers into the individual mailboxes. I guess a few people saw them, but am asuming most of them were tossed intot he trash. On the day before the drive, I made a huge banner, advertising the effort, on my garage door. The wind blew it to bits. The day of the drive, I placed a huge cardboard sign in the front yard, that advertised the baby drive. The wind kept blowing it over and then it rained. It was so pathetic! But in the end, I did have a few neighbors give very generously to the homeless babies of San Antonio. I wish I had more to give, but I'm very excited to deliver everything to the San Antonio Metropolitan Ministries on Thursday. Every little bit counts, right?!

PS Don't forget that if you EVER have ANYTHING to give away, send it my way. I'll take it to SAMM's homeless. Thanks!!
