Here in Hartford, CT there was a fundraising march yesterday for Autism. They raised $200,000 to go toward research and treatment. Pretty phenomenal, huh? So I thought I would repeat something I offered before but I don’t think many saw.
I made a wreath for Autism Awareness and offered, and do again, to make a wreath of the interested party’s and my design (in other words, doesn’t have to be like mine). I need to keep what I spend on materials and shipping (materials I have on hand don’t count in the cost). Anything the purchaser wishes to pay above that cost will go to the Autism-related cause of their choice. I will keep 2% for a local support group for parents of adults with autism spectrum disorders. The wreath I made is below.
It was very inexpensive to make, I love Dollar Tree! I bought the floral foam wreath, wrapped it in green felt I had, bought a 24-piece puzzle, of which I used about half, including my trial and error, stencils and paint and flowers I had. Pretty inexpensive, huh? I have blue pool noodles, a lot of ribbon, yarn, the rest of the great size puzzle pieces, hot glue (I hardly got any on me, lol), craft store sales and coupons (love). etc. Your cost for a big wreath with a lot of decoration would be pretty low. Please reply in comments here if you want to get in touch or to my email address at the top right corner of this page. I haven’t been using Twitter. I’ll do a refresher, (we vintage people don’t catch on to this new technology quickly, ya know) but as of now, please don’t use Twitter to reach me, I probably won’t get it.
I have a small group of followers so if anyone is interested in re-blogging this please do!!
I’ve chosen a new, shorter blog name (firstname.lastname@example.org) which WordPress has approved. I’ll start using it Monday, June,10 and hopefully all blogs will switch to that address. I’ll keep both addresses until that occurs. Thanks.
