Every year I create a handcrafted ornament or Christmas decoration for my kids.
In addition I make a limited edition for my etsy shop. While this year is no exception, there is twist. I am calling this years ornament “Elves for Ceekay”.
This is my good friend Ceekay (with my doxie Rudi). She writes the blog “Thinkin of Home”.
Ceekay is currently in the hospital fighting a very bad reaction to her most recent chemotherapy session.
Ceekay and I met through blogging. We routinely get together with our other sweet blogging buddies. Our most recent lunch was held a few days before Halloween.
Oh boy can we talk, laugh, and most importantly share one another’s burdens. My friend Ceekay is many things: cheerful, crafty, smart, kind and sadly she has been determinedly battling ovarian cancer for as long as I have known her. But she never lets her illness define her.
At this luncheon Ceekay said she wished that there was a Make A Wish foundation for adults. Its her heartfelt desire to take her small family to Disneyland. As you know medical care is expensive. So while a visit to the happiest place on earth may seem like such a small thing, I know that her budget does not allow for such things.
I wish I personally knew Bill Gates, but I don’t. However I am crafty and I know blogland.
Together we can make this happen.
In my etsy shop you will find 15 small acorn elves for $10.00 each.
22 large acorn elves for $15.00 each
and 6 pink themed elves for $20.00 each.
100% of ALL the profits will go to Ceekay’s dream.
The elves are all hand painted and hand crafted by me.
No two are alike.
Ceekay’s family is made up of her husband, her son, her daughter, son in law and two grand children. If all 43 elves sell this will be a good start.
But I’ll need some help to make her wish completely come true.
