New Hope Christmas Craft Fair

craftsale

I don’t typically do a lot of selling in person. This is mostly because I’m busy with my corporate/non-profit clients and therefore don’t make a lot of stationery that isn’t personalized.

But I’m breaking my trend because my church is hosting its annual Christmas Craft Fair & Bake Sale on November 8, 2014 from 9:00am-2:00pm (8905 Ox Road, Lorton, VA). Parking and admittance is FREE. And the best part is that all proceeds benefit Feed My Starving Children. FMSC is a non-profit organization that sends hand-pack meals, specifically formulated for malnourished children, to nearly 70 countries around the world.

Every 22 cents you spend equals one meal. So if you spend $20.00, it buys nearly 91 meals – how awesome is that!

I’ll be selling the following items:

  • Single Notecards
  • Boxed sets of Thank You and Holiday cards
  • 2015 Desk Calendars
  • Laser cut wooden ornaments (made by my mom!)

AND…to help raise as much money as possible, I have decided that all the money I receive for items sold in my Etsy Shop on November 8-9, 2014 will also be donated to FMSC.  This way if you can’t make it to Lorton, VA next weekend, you can still participate and help a child in need.

Arts on the Horizon

One of the things I love about being a designer, is being able to help young art’s organizations with their design and marketing.  So today I wanted to tell you a bit about Arts on the Horizon.

AOTH_Logo-01I have been working with Arts on the Horizon for since 2011, when they wanted to come up with a new logo.  They specialize in theatre for children ages 0-6 years old in the Northern Virginia and DC area.  When they first told me what they did, I though “Theater for infants?!  No way…”  But, with shorter performance times, morning hours on weekdays AND weekends,  shows specifically recommended for different age ranges and the option for kiddo’s to sit right on mom or dad’s lap during shows – it’s a really great concept!  It is theater for truly young audiences.  Now that I have a 4 month old myself, I am SO excited for us to attend our first performance together this weekend.

Under the Canopy will be having a special summer preview this weekend (August 9, 10, & 11) in Alexandria, VA at The Athenaeum.  It’s a 20 minute, interactive show with music, sound effects and plenty of things to touch and look at.  And with $3.00 tickets, it’s a great deal!
