Valentine Sale-a-Bration & So Much More!

Hi Everyone,

Well we’ve been at it again. We (some of my Team Members) held a Valentine Sale-a-Bration here in Jacksonville, Florida. When we host these events we have a charity that we help in the area. This time around we did an event for the Jessica Green Foundation here in Jacksonville. Jessica Green had Autism and passed away a the age of 28. Her Mother wondered what would have happened to Jessica has she outlived her. So she started a foundation to help families of children with Autism and to build group homes for children that outlive their parents or caretakers. So we decided to pitch in and help as best we could.

Here is our stamping event called Valentine Sale-a-Bration!!!

Front row from left to right…..Roberta, Susan, Lisa, Janet, Lee Karen, Gina and Christina.  What a great team of girls this is!!

Notice the mural in the background? That was done recently at the Storage facility where we hold the events. It’s called Bluewater Storage and the folks there are just the best!
