Ali Edwards Capture life. Create art.

March 30, 2007

It’s Friday.


Giveaway #2:

Today the giveaway includes some of my favorite things right now.

• I love the big chipboard and big stamps from Fancy Pants (your package will include two large stamp sets, one small stamp set, two chipboard sets, + the big acrylic block). The big chipboard pieces have been inspiring me in so many ways this last few weeks.
• My all time favorite stamp "Notes from Today" from Catslife Press.
• A self-inking circle stamp from 7gypsies.
• A 8×8 binder album from Maya Road (used in the Evolution project from yesterday)

Leave me a comment
and we will do the same drill tonight as yesterday: comments closed at 6:45pm Pacific and the drawing will be at 7:00pm Pacific.

And again, remember: encourage just one more person about the badge. Call your Mom or your Dad. I love the idea of chatting up your neighbor. You can even help them through the process online. Make a new friend. One more more…one more.

The contest ends tomorrow night at 11:59pm Eastern. Today and tomorrow and that is it for this particular adventure. After that they will have to go through and verify the individual donations before we will know the final numbers.

Crazy. Crazy good.

One more person.

Go team, go.

    Ali…I posted this in yesterday’s comments, but I don’t think I can ever tell you how much your initiative to get this all going means to everyone affected by Autism. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
    I have been a long time admirer of your scrapbooking and all the wonderful projects you create. Never in a million years did I ever think I would share another passion of mine with you. You see, I too have a son with Autism. He is 6 almost 7 and we had the official diagnosis a year ago. He is our life, our passion and now we have a new passion…Autism Awareness. I am inspired by your openness and beautiful scrapbook pages on your son. Truly inspired. Please know that people like you are really making a difference for all of us out here wading through this “puzzling” condition. The future is so much brighter for our kiddos and I just know that we can all make a difference together! Thank you for taking the initiative to not only raise money for the cause, but to spread AWARENESS, because truly that is just as important. Yes, we need the money for research, but the awareness comes first. If people are educated/aware, that’s where it all starts. So THANK YOU from the bottom of my family’s heart. I am so excited to see that number climbing everyday. Bright future indeed.
