Last week we had a silent Auction for my daughter's school. I hate to call businesses and ask for donations. And each PTA board member is required to bring 10 donated items. Sooo I just make things to donate. I took a bow board for hair bows, a bulletin board that said Jacks which is the peewee team for this area, a towel set that had a football player and a cheerleader that said Jacks (that I embroidered my self, okay the machine did but hey) two Kimberbell dolls one light skinned and one darker skinned each with two outfits, a crocheted bag and blanket with a little doll, a chili pot gift set, and a wheat sack and sleep mask gift set, a size 18 month outfit with a t shirt bloomers and tutu, and a baby bouquet. Plus my mom made a bracelet and two bead people necklaces. Unfortunately not all my things got bids, but we raised over $1000 with all the other things that were sold over the course of the evening. And wouldn't you know I ended up getting 5 or 6 orders from people who saw the things I had made. I had pretty much decided I couldn't keep trying to run my business and I get new orders. Yeah!!
