Well I've had a very busy weekend, but I'm really happy with what I've accomplished so yay! It started with the craft sale yesterday, went to drawing the raffle this morning and entertaining some children this morning to spending some quality time with friends that it's been way too long between visits this afternoon.
The craft sale, just wouldn't have happened without some wonderful friends who just arrived without my even asking and helped clear the area and set it all up for the sale (massive thanks to Heather, Graeme & Catherine) and then Heather continued to spend the rest of the day in the kitchen doing all the refreshments with another friend Susie (who felt the need to bake some amazing scones), before all feeling the need to help clean up and put everything back at the end of the day - love your work guys - I owe you!
This is what the day looked like (yes I even forgot to take a camera so thanks again to a friend who took some via her phone for me!). Between the rain breaks we had lots of lovely people stop by and visit.
We were all safely snug indoors so we were fine. There were lots of bargain boxes to rummage through and many awesome bargains to be had!
This was one lovely lady (right) filling in her details after buying raffle tickets - thanks so much to Stampin' Up! for donating 90% of the raffle prizes such a great company that I'm very proud to be involved with as their charity work is fantastic - massive thanks to everyone who bought tickets - you're all wonderful. The raffle and refreshments mean that I will be able to donate the fantastic total to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation of:

Thank you again to everyone who helped out on the day, came along as a seller, a buyer or just for moral support. Rumour has it I'll be organising another one for next year - thinking mid March - any thoughts as I'd appreciate all feedback on the day as there was lots of good bits, but also areas for improvement! Have a good weekend and I'll be back to regular blogging tomorrow with the Last Chance List - yes not long now until we get our new catalogue!!!!
