Haven’t posted in about a month or two, but we’re back!

Standard

Hello everyone reading this,

Haven’t posted in a while, haven’t had much to say until now.  So here’s what’s been going on:

  • Georgia has a new chapter as of a couple of weeks ago.  The leaders’ name is Mechelle Dixon, she’s very nice, and founded her own organization on top of volunteering for us.  Graced Place is the name of her organization.
  • Last night (July 28, 2013) I received two bags of silken fabrics from a friend of my mothers’ who works for Duralee in Bayshore.  Now comes the sorting by color, and area of usage part. Browns, and Black with Teddy Bear Materials Bin…  the rest in uncut fabrics bin in Living Room area.
  • Going to a volunteer fair in September for MOTB.
  • Still working on the magazine… In fact I found somewhere that will publish for free!  Now how amazing is that?

Plenty has been happening lately!  Keep checking back…

Yudu Publishing possibly on the move this weekend with our mag!

Standard

Okay, so that about sums it up!  Not to count our chickens before they hatch, but we may or may not have our FIRST official CHAPTER!!!  (AGAIN!)  Third time’s a charm!  Anyway, the Magazine…  (…it’s a Friday night and I’m at a bar with Mick…it’s so loud in here, I can barely hear myself think…) ANYWAY!!!   MAGAZINE TIME!  I paid the 75 dollars (finally) for the non-profit status (through NYS), and now another $25 per page (through YUDU).  Hopefully we can get the $/page lowered, once the papers come back, from NYS, approving us!

Little Bears

We are Little Bears! We are from Poland, a wonderful Human lady made us! We were given to March of the Blanketeers, in the United States, so we can put smiles on sick kids faces! There are twenty of us, and we are all friends!
A very nice human lady here in the US said that we’re going to a place called Huntington Hospital.

Got the LIEBSTER AWARD on Google Plus!

Standard

Okay, so I didn’t know what this meant until I read the previous post who got it.  It’s a game!  Liebster is a German word for Darling, it’s not anything mean or nasty, nor offensive in anyway.  It’s just nice!  

So here are the Rules I feel are appropriate and acceptable, thus the ones I’m going to use:
  1. Acknowledge the person that gave you the Award and follow their blog. (see above ^_^)
  2. Answer the 11 interview-type questions from your gracious presenter. (available on their blog; see, you have to visit their blog!)
  3. Visit the blogs that received the Award along with you.
  4. Grant the Award to 10 other bloggers that are just starting or have less than 500 followers. (200 is a bit low for me and remember to send this award to someone other than the person that sent it to you)
  5. Award the “report” to each of your winners, ie: tag them somehow or post on their blog letting them know about the Award.
  6. Link back to your site so they can answer the interview-type questions you have posted for them. You can use the questions that you answered or ones that you come up with on your own but please do not ask questions that might be considered offensive; someones religious/political practices or sexual preference is not your business to ask about.
  7. Remember, this is for fun and virtual foot traffic. You are under no obligation to participate. There are no judges, no “special” rules, and no official site and/or team coming with a giant check and balloons to your doorstep. If you receive the Award you can do one of two things; Accept and pass it along or don’t.

  6. What motivated you to start blogging?  Orignally, cuz I needed a place to vent, but now years later…  I own a small business (Sam’s Crazy Crafts), and run a charity, that I need to keep traffic up on.
  7. Do you play online games of any sort? If so what kind?  MMORPG’s (Runescape)
  8. If money was no object what would you like to do?  Cure Cancer
  9. What do you want to accomplish with your blog?  Get some more volunteers
  10. Do you feel connected with DAY or NIGHT more? DAY!
