Crop for a Cause!..Rowan House Emergency Shelter


cropforacausebanner.jpgOn March 17, 2018, in Turner Valley, Alberta, a fundraiser crop will be held for a cause that is very important to the Foothills of Alberta.  Years ago there was a larger scale crop held in Okotoks in support of this cause, this current crop is not connected with that group, it was started completely separate and by some great ladies in the Turner Valley area. It was brought to my attention a few years ago, and I was all over supporting this great cause! I have helped a team of volunteers in the area of registrations and donations for the big day, and continue to do so, year after year, and am happy to do so!


What is Rowan House? 

Rowan House mission:

Our Mission at the Rowan House Emergency Shelter is to provide crisis intervention, long-term support and education for those affected by family violence in rural communities.

Rowan House is an emergency shelter for women and children serving the Foothills and area.  It is an important resource to the community, not only as a shelter, but also for their prevention education programs.  As a past teacher in High River, the ladies from Rowan House had come to my high school classes to educate our students on the different types of abuse and what a healthy relationship should entail.  They have education programs for all ages and are a valued part of our community.  As a woman, a mom, an educator, I, like many others in our communities, whole-heartedly support this organization and the amazing work they do.

How can you help?

Contact me to register, click here for the Facebook event with all the details of the day!  Fee $65 for a full day crop, including two meals, make n’takes and prizes.  Registration closes on February 5th, or when you max to capacity, whichever comes first.

#CoffeeBreak card class in July!


Join me for coffee and to make some #coffeebreak cards!! I’ve never offered a card class in the summer as it’s a crazy time but by request for this beauty of a suite, I couldn’t resist!! I’m also offering the class on a Monday night, which I don’t usually do either so hoping I’ll get some newbies and we can enjoy a relaxing evening together!

This suite is value for money! The sentiments in the stamp set are so awesome, three different variations, who doesn’t love coffee and there is a bundle deal!! The bundle, including the stamp set and the framelits is 10% savings and $59.25.  My class includes making 12 cards, 3 designs at 4 each for $25.  For you bundle and framelits lovers out there, you know who you are, you can attend my class and pre-order the bundle to be waiting of you for only $75 all in! that’s more than 30% off the class fee for the combined deal!  RSVP required and prepay by July 10th.  Also, all orders in June are entered in a draw for a $25 gift certificate from me, so you could get in on that too, order today 🙂

Cards are not necessarily as shown above, photo for inspiration only.  I will post samples as we draw closer to the date (and I actually get my supplies to do some creating first). 🙂

My classes are all in my home and you can find all the details for this class on my Facebook page, be sure to like!
