February Ronald McDonald House

Crafters -

Once a month, I am blessed to craft at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House. Did you know that the Columbus (Ohio) Ronald McDonald House is the LARGEST in the WORLD! (http://rmhc-centralohio.org/who-we-are/history/)

We meet the THIRD SUNDAY of each month. Stampin'Up! is a corporate sponsor of Ronald McDonald House Charities (Stampin'Up! donates time and money to support Ronald McDonald House Charities. To date Stampin'Up! has contributed over $1.5 million to RMHC and their network of local RMHC Chapters. Visit www.stampinup.com/giving to learn how you can help.)

Each year, Stampin'Up! produces an RMHC stamp set. This year's is the Sharing Sweet Thoughts Stamp Set (available in wood or clear mount). Stampin'Up! donates $3 when you purchase that set too.

Well, yesterday was the third Sunday. It's been a little dreary and gray here in Central Ohio. Matter of fact, we even had some SNOW on Saturday! It didn't hang around long, just enough to make it COLD!

So, I pulled out some fun springtime-y colors (mostly Soft Subtles), including a few retired colors!, and some old kits that had some GREAT stickers with them! Grabbed my Magical Day stamp set and stamped a few unicorns, mermaids, knights, wizards, and even a few dragons! Placed my coloring pencils into my bag and away I went!

Check out the wonderful creations that were made!
This is how the table STARTED!

This card was made by a beautiful young lady!
AND she waited until everyone had made his or her card and came back to make an extra one!
What a sweetheart!

Talk about a wonderful young woman!

The Volunteer Coordinator, Amy, made this for one of her co-workers.
I LOVE how sweet, bubbly, and POSITIVE Amy is!
She brightens my day with her hugs upon my arrival!

This little girl sat right down and KNEW she wanted the mermaid AND the unicorn!
FABULOUS coloring job!

One of the moms made this for her 15 year old son, Z.
She told me that her other son, whom they lost when HE was 15, had made a card about 2 years ago at RMHC.
Z talks about that card and his mom wanted to make him one.
She shared that the memories are the best...

This card was made by the mom of an 8-month old.
She told me that she just took down the Christmas ornaments that we made in December.
They were really cute AND fun AND cheery!
So glad she and her son are able to enjoy the crafts she makes for him.
What memories they will have...

Mom, her two kids, AND Abigail from RMHC.
Abigail wasn't even working today but still stopped in.
I'm telling you - WONDERFUL people at Columbus RMHC!

This little girl even held up her card so I could get a good photo!
What a sweetie!

He had the BEST time coloring with the pencils!

Mom's card for a new baby.
You KNOW the family is going to LOVE this card!

Please lift these families in prayer. And if you are a local Stampin'Up! demonstrator, we'd LOVE to have you join us. Our next crafting date is Sunday, March 18th, from 12p (noon) to 2p Eastern.
