My buddy beta-Blogger tells me that this is my 100th post, and what a fun ride it has been. I have seen people celebrate similar milestones with fun competitions and amazing give-aways, but I wanted to ask all of you for something instead.
The craft fair that I've been banging on about is in a little over a month. It is a charity event in aid of Home Start, which deals with families in times of difficulty or distress. My table fee and 10% of my takings go to the charity. But I wanted to do something extra and had been racking my brain for a good idea.
I'm sure you've seen plenty of Minimoopies inspired by Carly's pattern floating about blogland (only I can't show you any, because Blogger's on a picture free jag right now). She has very kindly allowed me permission to use her pattern for a 'Minimoopy love experience'. This bundle contains a copy of the minimoopy pattern and the materials to make a minimoopy of your very own. I want the whole price of the 'Minimoopy love experience' items to go to the charity.
If I can get enough volunteers, children may be able to help make their own design there and then on the day. If not, I plan to have a big basket of fabric so they can at least pick out their own colour combinations for the pattern to be completed at home.
Oh - fabric - and that's where you sweet generous bloggers come in. Now I have some scraps, but probably not enough (because believe me, I'm going to be selling the love experience for all I'm worth and I'm a good salesperson!). As a little 100th post gift to me I wondered if I could ask you to sort through your scraps and send any Moopy-limb-sized bits my way. Please e-mail me if you might be able to help.
And Carly, a huge thank you to you for your generosity in giving me permission to share your pattern, which is generally only for personal use, but in this case may get to spread a little love and raise some much needed funds.
Now I'm off to bake a little something to celebrate 100 posts.
