At the left is a picture of what Vanessa's gorgeous house looked like last week when we all descended upon her to put all the baskets o' goodies together. Poor girl - she wasn't even fazed by the mess we made.
OOOH! See the big coffee cup and saucer with polka dots on it on the floor?? THAT 'S THE SCRAPBOOKING BASKET! Isnt' it adorable??? I filled it with lots of yummy paper and scrap goodies I wanted to have. Jo from Scrappy Jo's (www.shopscrapbooksupplies.com) even sent goodies for it - wasn't that sweet??? But then, that's just Jo - she is one of the kindest and sweetest scrappers I know. I wish you could all come bid on this little cup o' scrappy goodness. Heck, I may bid on it myownself.
Thanks to Vanessa and everyone's hard work, we are ready for one heck of an event. The chefs are arriving tomorrow morning to start cooking AMAZING food. We're serving mimosas and bloody marys and pink lemonade. We've got a ROOM FULL OF AUCTION ITEMS with everything from spa goodies to sports stuff to the most beautiful handcrafted jewelry you've ever laid your eyes on.
Before I go, though, I have to say one last THANK YOU to everyone for making Calling All Cards for Breast Cancer such a success. Brenda and I carefully wrapped each one of your cards in cellophane and we literally ended up with a box FULL of cards. I can't wait to get my table set up tomorrow and start selling these babies!
Be sure to check out the gallery up to the right. I've had more fun today taking pics of beautiful cards from Ana Peralta, Teresa Davis, Julie Weidner and Beth Koenig - four amazing friends of Kimmy Johnson - who sent a gorgeous array of cards for Calling All Cards for Breast Cancer. Thank you, ladies, from the bottom of my heart. I'm so grateful to you.
Have a great afternoon, everyone!
