Scrappin' good times!

We're getting VERY excited about next Saturday's Kyrie Foundation Krop! Hope you are, too!

I plan to spend the day making thank you cards. We have so many people to thank for helping the Kyrie Foundation that I might need more than just one day. ;)

Just so you know, if you can't make it all day, that's okay. Come until lunch then duck out. Arrive after lunch for dinner and scrap-time. You can come and go as you please.

In case you didn't get the e-mail, we have some extremely compelling reasons why you should spend next Saturday with us:

• FREE GOODIES! Your goodie bag will be worth $17.00 alone! UPDATE: New donations have made each goodie bag worth $20!
• FREE PRIZES! Everybody is automatically entered for a chance to win a door prize, which includes the crazy-popular, electronic die-cutting machine: the Cricut, worth nearly $300.00!
• FREEBIES! We have a couple of surprises to give away to EVERYONE worth over $25.00! UPDATE: New donations have made the freebies worth $30!
• FREE COOKIES! For those of you who attended last year, you know how great these were, homemade courtesy of Kyrie's great-nana, Norma.
• FREE COFFEE & TEA! Gotta keep going!
• FREE-WILL-DONATION MASSAGE! Take a couple minutes to relax at the hands of licensed massage therapist and Kyrie's aunt Amanda.
• GREAT VENDORS! Another vendor wants to come hang out with you: Check out Scrappy Chicks from Manhattan, KS!

I had an absolutely wonderful time today and I'm definitely planning on coming next year, too. I'm going to post a link to your blog on my blog - and on my grandson's blog. He's PDD-NOS and I have a blog set up for him to track his progress, challenges, and triumphs.

Ugh...I didn't finish my post but my laptop thought I was finished. LOL! In case you don't know who "soapymomponders" is, I was going to also leave my name.
