Ready to Give Hope ~ 371 times!

| Animals, Blanket, Crafts, Crochet, Knit, Sewing, Vintage

We have finally finished opening the last of the Project 19 boxes. Those boxes kept coming all the way into February, and I wanted to wait to show you the final pile ‘o hope until they were all here and opened and hugged.

Tiniest-package-ever

Here is the tiniest package of hope that we received, and its inhabitant. Isn’t she the cutest?

whooo's-too-cute

Kyla was very excited about the Rainbow Unicorn!!

Rainbow-Unicorn!

We had been in contact with the Boys and Girls clubs of Hobokin and Jersey City. It turns out we have more softies then they need!!

still-unpacking

So we contacted the United Way of Bergan county. They are very excited about the extra softies we have!

emptying-boxes

Once the roads are a bit safer ~ Tuesday or Wednesday I am hoping ~ the girls and I will take a little field trip after school to Hobokin to drop off the softies for the Boys and Girls clubs. I will try to get some photos of the critters with their new owners.

cute-and-sleepy

It may be a few more weeks before the rest of the softies make their way to Bergan county, we are still working with the United way to find the right group to hand them off to. We want to make sure they go to the kiddies who need them because of Sandy.

Pink-plushy-monster

It sure has been fun opening all these boxes and giving every little critter some extra love.

mustache-man

The spare room (which will one day be Kyla’s room) will be so empty!

Pile-o-monsters

It seems like the last batch of boxes was heavy on the monsters. We love the monsters in this house! The girls used to have imaginary Monsters who lived in their closet and came out to play with them at night.

yummy-from-Hawaii

Look at this! Sometimes there is extra love just for me in a box. Oh, my, these were yummy! I shared a few with the kids and the husband, but only a few :^)

monster-love

As I said, lots of monsters.

Strawberry-girl!

And a strawberry girl as well!

adding-more-love

Everyone is given extra love and hugs to bring with them to their new kids.

circus-elephant!!

This elephant is pretty high on my list of  “it’s~really~going~to~be~hard~to~give~this~one ~away!”

363-softies-full-of-love

We opened another 131 softies

pile-of-Craft-Hope-19

That makes 371 all together!!

It’s been a blast! Thank you

Here is the list I promised for Project 19 to all my Craft Hope peeps! Links to various free patterns for softies. If you have more links you think should be added, just let me know. I hope this helps inspire you all to create some love for child victims of Sandy. I have done my best to only include free patterns, in the spirit of Craft Hope, however, if you know of a paid pattern or a coupon code that others may be interested in, go ahead and share that info with each other on the Craft Hope Facebook page.

Once again I have teamed up with the amazing Craft Hope! The new web page is still under construction, but the Facebook page is running smoothly. So hop on over to the Craft Hope Facebook page and give them a “like.” Then check out Project 19 :: Dolls, Animals, and Monsters. Oh My! Share it with anyone you know who may be able to make handmade softies for kids who lost so much from Sandy. There are two people collecting for this project, the lovely Katrina up in NH, and yours truly.

Celebrate cyber week, and extend small business Saturday by shopping at my on line stores! *plus, I could use some help with the bills ;^)* Use coupon code “Holiday” to receive 15% off your entire order in my Etsy store. ALSO: all patterns in my Craftsy and Ravelry stores will be marked down 20%, there is no way to make coupons for those two sites, so I have changed the prices for the patterns for the course of the sale. This sale will run through New Year’s Day. That way you can take advantage of the sale for Holiday gifts, or you can buy yourself goodies with your Holiday money.

There are lots of new goodies at JessieAtHome.com. There will be more coming in the next few days as well. (more…)

I love it when Vada does her own hair.

Vada-does-her-own-hair

She’s so proud of her creation!

so-darn-cute

So darn cute!

Vada-the-stylist

Kyla was a little sick this week. We had a pajama cuddle day on Wednesday.

Kyla's-not-feeling-well

She was very cuddly and very sad that her tummy wasn’t happy.

Kyla's-sad-tummy

Vada once again entertained us with her self~styled hair.

Vada-the-hair-stylist

She even got the back this time.

back-of-Vada's-hair

I found this beauty at a consignment shop by InsaniTea. (I talked her down to $40 as it had been in her window for a year, and the bobbin cover is missing)

my-new-pretty-machine

It was made in 1923.

my-new-pretty-machine-close-up

So beautiful. I just love it.

my-new-pretty-machine-details

Apparently it worked a year ago before she put it in her window. I’m not trying anything until I replace the power cord.

my-new-pretty-machine-head-plate

They just  don’t make ’em like they used to.

Well, I guess it’s going around. Yarrrn Club at InsaniTea was rather sparse on Sunday due to people being sick. It was just me, Jenn (yea!!!) and Jenn’s daughter Katrina.

Ingrid acquired a new mug. I fell in love! It’s even a little dimensional. 70’s fun! (more…)
