Lynnzcrafters, Thanksgiving

Stamping with Seniors- November

Today was my monthly stamping event at the Atrium, a Senior Citizen Retirement Apartment Complex. I was asked to offer Thanksgiving and Hanukkah items this month. Here’s what I came up with.

Many sincere thanks to Amye, Judy, Sheila, Claire, Ashley, Nicole, and Sophie for volunteering their time today so that these seniors could have some stamping fun. I think the girls enjoyed going door to door to invite people to come stamp and then they went around at the end of our stamping time and delivered hand-made cards and decor to the residents. The girls got a lot out of it, and I heard them commenting “did you see her smile when we gave her that card??” sniff, sniff… this friends is what “pay it forward” means, to be giving of your time, talent and spirit is worth all the gold in the world. I hope we melted a few hearts today, well besides mine that is. So proud of my group of friends who are so generous with their time. Thank you a million!

Well, off to my first booking from book-a-thon at Jen’s house tonight. Will post pictures tomorrow.
Take care, thanks for visiting my blog!

Stampingwith Seniors and more news…

Happy Saturday morning to you!!
Well I have a busy weekend planned, how about you?
Last night we kicked off the new season with our Brownie Troop, did I tell you my sister and I are co-Assistant leaders? We feel confident under the leadership of the awesome Patty that we will have a great year. Mark your calendars for Saturday October 19th for a multi-family Garage Sale (all the families in the troop and I will be donating items to see to raise much needed funds)… More details to come. Oh and the girls are going to make those cute bracelets that are all the rage right now, in the color pink, for Breast Cancer Awareness month. I’ll post pictures when they make them.

This morning I have a bunch of ladies coming over to make this fall frame:



And tonight I am going to a local senior citizen center to make these cards with some lovely ladies. I hope I remember to take pictures this time!





Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend! i LOVE to read your comments!

Stamping with Seniors… simple Stampin’ Up!

atrium cards

Hi there stamping friends! I hope you had a great weekend!

What do you think of these simple cards? I am doing an event at a local senior citizen residence next weekend, to see if seniors like to stamp! My BFF’s grandmother recently moved in there, and I saw their activities line up and thought, “hum, I bet they’d like Arts-and-Crafts”! So, I’m going to give it a whirl.

I’m planning to bring all kinds of rubber stamps, ink pads and our note cards/envelopes. I’m going to let them each make 2 cards this first time. I’ll find out what they like, and see if they would like to step it up next time… I just need to be careful of the level of fine motor involvment, or be sure to have helpers with me.

free shipping

Don’t forget free shipping ends tomorrow night! If you were thinking of getting something (I know you want those dress framelits, right??)- just think you are saving 10% if you order by midnight tomorrow. If you order by 6 pm and use Hostess code Z4AVCU7C in my online store, you will be entered to win a free Spring Array Bundle (punch and clear mount stamp set- a $28 value!) Go to

Well, my dear sweet sister informed me I write too much… so I’m going to try to shorten these blog posts a bit. Let me know if you like reading my (lengthy) posts or not 🙂

Until tomorrow, happy stamping!
