We received the following special request; you know Scrappersaurus is always happy to help out, particularly when it is for something near and dear to our heart!
PS37 is a self-contained Special Education School for Children with Disabilities (such as Autism, Congenital Heart Disease, Down Syndrome, and Cerebral Palsy).
On January 18, 2014, the PTA of PS37R is planning to hold their 3rd Annual Crop for Our Kids Scrapbook Event to raise money for much-needed equipment, which the Department of Education cannot pay for. Approximately 150 scrappers, mainly from around the New York area, will be attending.
Any, and all, donations made to help achieve the goal will be greatly appreciated! Items are needed specifically to raffle off to raise funds needed for equipment purchase, as well as for inclusion in the goody bags for croppers. All proceeds go directly to the children, and are tax deductible.
Please mail donations directly to:
Attn: Katy Shelkowitz
Scrapbook Event Chairperson
15 Fairfield Street
Staten Island NY 10308
Thank you, in advance, for any support you can provide!
Please consider donating items for Goody Bags, Door Prizes, Raffles, or Auctions! What better way to pare down, and make room for what Santa will be bringing you?!
I believe the Raffle/Auction items could be anything (not just craft-related) that someone would want to bid on or buy a ticket for a chance to win.
If you will be in the New York area, or just want to get away for some "me" time after the holiday madness, you could even attend the crop, yourself! Their Registration Flyer is included at the bottom of this post, with all the info.
If you are unable to mail donations directly to the school, please contact me to find out when and where you can drop it off, and we will mail them with our donations. Scrappersaurus will mail all donations Saturday, December 21st, so the organizers will have enough time to prepare.
Thank you in advance, Scrappersaurusonians, for all your caring support and assistance with this very worthwhile endeavor!

Do you own a Cricut machine, or want to? The following brief video shows how easy it is to use: http://www.cricut.com/home/learn/machines/expression-2. However, there's nothing better than a hands-on trial, and the next Cricut Expression 2 Test Drive at Michaels is Friday, 12/20/13 from 6-8pm - just in time to let Santa know you want one! The cost is only $10.00, to come try it out for yourself!
In case you haven't heard about the Cricut Craft Room - where you can now go online to design your Cricut project, using their software - you can see what it is all about here: http://www.cricut.com/home/craftroom. Be sure to check out the FREE cuts they have available for you this week - 12/11-18 - http://www.cricut.com/home/free-images.
Y'all be safe driving around out there in that crazy holiday traffic!
REMEMBER: Holidays are a time of giving and forgiving, so let's please avoid the road rage!!!
If someone cuts you off, or steals that parking spot you've been circling 10 minutes to get, instead of cursing them out, BLESS them and move on. Yes, that may be difficult to do, but trust me, God / Karma / The Universe will take care of any real injustices. One can truly never know what another person is dealing with that could blind them to realizing they even did anything wrong. Just let it go, and go on about your day. You will be repaid in kind!
Until next time, happy Scrapping, Stamping, and SHOPPING!!!
