Here they are:
On Thursday and Friday alone last week I accepted 10 courier deliveries and over ONE HUNDRED boxes full of LO’s and albums for the Memory Gifts project.
I have to tell you, I am completely overwhelmed. Seriously. I knew this project was bigger than I expected, but this is HUGE. My entire front room, the hallway and part of the family room are overtaken with boxes.
What amazes me is that there are still more boxes to arrive and that’s not even including the ones from America and Europe yet. I have put together about 100 albums so far, which makes a total of about 200 albums ready to go, thanks to those of you who sent in completed albums.
The standard of LO’s has been superb and I can see just how much time, love and effort has gone into each and every page. Well done. And thankyou to all of you who sent me a lovely note of encouragement, or a card to say thanks for my effort, or sent in a lovely note or card to the families who will receive an album.
I know I shouldn’t be, but I am really suprised and humbled by the generosity of people. I would love to thank each and every one of you personally (in fact, look out for a letter in the post once the busy part of the project is over) but I will have to settle for the mediocre version of writing it up on my Blog. From the Wholesalers, to the Retailers, to the Individuals (yes, you) and to the Grade 3 class from Telopea, THANKYOU from the bottom of my heart.
To those of you who wanted to contribute and missed the deadline, please leave me a comment and we will work something out in order to get your LO’s into these albums.
HERE’S ANOTHER WAY TO HELP:
For those of you who do Digi Scrapping or Hybrid Scrapping there is a way you can help that will directly benefit the Victorian Families. Here it is:
If you visit EIDOU and purchase this Kit for the bargain price of $3, all money raised will go towards a donation from Eidou to the Victorian Bushfire Relief Fund. That is ALL PROCEEDS from the sale of this Kit – 100% of the purchase price.
A huge thankyou to Louise, the big cheese from Eidou for helping to collaborate this Kit and for donating all the proceeds from it’s sale.
The Kit come to you in three downloads because it is HUGE – 22 papers, 24 elements and more! Each paper and element is printable so you could use it in your traditional paper scrapping as well.
Stay tuned for more updates – I’ll be posting with more photos soon!
I just updated this post with more photos of some of the piles of albums we have filled – it took 4 of us 7 HOURS to fill 100 albums the other day and we were stuffed, I can tell you :). A HUMUNGOUS THANKYOU goes out to Debbie, Sherie and Jan who helped me put those 100 albums together.
Take care all,
