Hope for Japan - CTMH fundraiser for Red Cross!
Close To My Heart founder Jeanette Lynton had the Design Team at CTMH working to create a new stamp set (pictured above) to offer with 100% of purchase price - just $5 (plus shipping and tax on a regular A-sized stamp [$7.95 retail value]) going to the Red Cross to support relief efforts in Japan. I love being associated with a company that takes action to help!
If you care to get one (or a few) of these, click on the "Shop with Me" link to the right and place an order through my website. As long as you are there, check out the While Supplies Last section. Those little 3x3 Kraft mini albums I made into ornaments are now down to $1...I would love a whole tree with different little albums all over it at Christmas!
That puts me in mind of a Shel Silverstein poem called "Merry":
No one's hanging stockings up
No one's baking pie
No one's looking up to see
A new star in the sky
No one's talking brotherhood
And no one's giving gifts
And no one loves a Christmas tree
On March the 25th.
I know I'm a day late with thinking of this, since it's now March 26th. Still, I've always loved that "Where the Sidewalk Ends" poem!
