Moo Two Designs Chelsea Charity Kit

Oh boy - how are you today? Me, well it's been one of those days!! You know what I mean, right? Had errands to run, did a little Christmas shopping, and found out just how old I am feeling these days!! I was sitting in the truck as dh was pumping gas and was looking in the mirror at my hair!! I have started using this new hair shampoo and conditioner that's suppose to help smooth and shine your hair!! It's doing pretty good so far.....but, it's not taking the GRAY hairs out!! OMG - I looked in that mirror and thought oh my god - there are a million gray hairs in my head..... LOL Probably not, but it sure felt like it!! Notice I said felt!! That's because I went straight to my favorite shopping place Wal-Mart and got me some color!! Came straight home and had dh color it for me!! WOW - do I feel better!! LOL Anyway, I was telling you all before about a charity kit that a friend of mine from Moo Two Designs is doing for Chelsea who has Acute Myelogenous Leukemia!! There are lots of designers, not just Moo Two designers that are stepping up to the plate for this one!! So, I thought I'd preview a few for you - so that you don't forget to get to Moo Two when this beautiful kit hits the store!! It will be hitting the store in late November or early December!! It is going to be one humongous kit!! Check out what has been donated so far:

Just Ramblings.......

Hello!! Been a few since I posted anything!! Been busy and crazy with my little one Caden keeping me so busy and this past weekend was the Annual Seafood Festival here in Richmond Hill!! They had the Swinging Medallions for entertainment on Friday night and Survivor (You know that song Eye of the Tiger) on Saturday night!! Friday looked like it was going to storm and was suppose to so we decided to wait until Saturday night to go!! Boy, was that a mistake!! Everyone must have had the same idea!! They have seafood, of course, entertainment, and rides and games!! Of course with the kids in tow we had to do the rides - well, we did ones that the lines weren't so long!! If I go again I will not take the kids at night - too many teenagers and since we have kids that range from 1 yr - 9 yrs. it's just too much!! We will take them during the day and if we want to go at night we will find a babysitter!! LOL I guess I'm getting too old to be in crowds like that anymore!! ugh....

Great news - I got an email from a good friend and Designer this morning that I have been accepted to be on her CT team - So, I am now also on LeslieH Designs CT team too!! WOOT!! WOOT!! Thanks so much Leslie for the wonderful chance to work with your fabulous designs!!

Calling all Designers or anyone

Well, hello everyone!! Haven't posted for several days, but today is my Birthday!! Whoo hoooo!! Ummmm, kind of just another day - just one year older!!! LOL Anywho, there is a friend of mine, Jeanette from Moo Two Designs that is doing a charity kit for a little girl named Chelsea who has Leukemia. Here are the details for any designers or anyone wanting to help out and get in on this wonderful kit. If you aren't a designer you can help by going to Moo Two Designs when this kit hits the store and purchase it to help Chelsea and her family out!!

This is written by Jeanette Bollinger:

You may or may not know that I am a contributing`author to a book about life as a mother of a child with Down Syndrome. It is a collection of stories from over 50 Moms, and it is a really amazing book!

Anyways, one of the little girls that is featured in the book is one and a half year old Chelsea! This sweet little girl has just been diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia! For those who don't know, this requires many, many chemotherapy treatments and an extremely long stay in the hospital. Chelsea has been in treatment for about a month now, and is such a trooper!!

As you can well imagine, this experience is a very expensive one, both emotionally and financially for the family. Chelsea has an older brother that she can rarely see for fear of Chelsea catching a virus, because she has no immune system due to the chemo. Her mother Cary has been staying with Chelsea most of the time, occasionally getting some sleep at the local Ronald McDonald House.

What I would like to do is create a beautiful collaboration kit and send the proceeds directly to the family. My thought is that it could at least help with meals, transportation, what have you.
I have come up with a color scheme, and the title I would like to use for the kit is "Sweet Butterflies"!

I am so excited to have to opportunity to help this family. Us Moms that contributed to the book (which is called Gifts:Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives) are quite close,so this is hitting quite close to home, especially since children with Down Syndrome are prone to developing Leukemia. I know that if Carter were ever sick like this that I would appreciate any and all help, so lets help this family!!!Who's with me??

And here's the beautiful Chelsea!! Now who could resist helping this little girl out?

Check out the color scheme and more details here

The deadline for this kit is November 20th!! So, let's get busy helping this family out!!

Moo Two Designs Looking For Advertising Person

Ok, you all my not know but I am a CT at Moo Two Designs, as well as being the Newsletter Editor, and hosting the Needle in Haystack Challenge, Layout of the Day, and monthly Bingo and Featured Designer Chats. So, with that said I have to advertise that we are looking for an advertising person!! Don't you want to be a Moo Two Girl? Well, see the details below!!

Do you like being part of a great team? Do you like stretching your creative muscles? Do you want to be part of a friendly, active “down home” site? Then look no more!

Moo Two Designs is looking for a committed, talented, enthusiastic Advertising/Marketing Coordinator. We have plans for a number of exciting events and would love to have someone come on board to help us promote them.

The successful applicant will be responsible for promoting Moo Two through various means including designing ads and posting them on various sites; sending the ads through a number of email groups; blogging; dreaming up creative ad campaigns and seeking out, suggesting and implementing new means of marketing Moo Two. We would also consider a team approach to this position.

We’re looking for a creative person with a flair for advertising; someone who is knowledgeable in the use of email groups, message boards and galleries and is very active in the digital scrapbooking community. You should know how to compose ads, banners, etc. You should be well organized and able to keep track of a large number of email groups, know their posting rules and when ads can be posted.

You will work closely with the site owner, administrator, newsletter editor and challenge coordinator to ensure that all events and sales are thoroughly advertised. You will also need to be active in the site forum. This job will require a fair amount of time and commitment on your part.

You will be compensated with kits of your choice from the Moo Two store. Details will be worked out with the successful applicant. There is potential for this to become a paid position in the future.

Interested? Email us at donna@mootwodesigns.com with the following information:

· Your name

Hugs!! Have a blessed day!!

Finally Done It!!

I have finally done it!! Went and got me one of those blog-a-roonies!! Well, this has been fun trying to get this thing done!! Still needs some work though - doesn't it? Well, this is for my ramblings and to keep everyone up-to-date on the happenings at the sites that I visit!! Today has been crazy - worked a little on this blog here this morning (with Leslie's help) - "Thanks" Leslie, I so appreciate it!! Then I had to run to the famous Wally world (Wal-Mart) to get a tire that had a screw in it fixed, so several hours later and oh so many $ later we finally got home, put up groceries, and I have been working on this thing for awhile. Now it's time for dinner!! Ugh - never ends does it? Well, I will be working on it some more tonight - so stay tuned for more info!!
