Major Announcement!

Keep reading for major exciting news announcement just for you...
...but first, the seventh and last issue of the Extremely Crafty Ideas e-zine is ready for you to read here. Thank you very much to the amazing contributions of Josefa Laura and Bee & Dee Designs. We've included their stories and cards for your pleasure.
This will be the last issue of Extremely Crafty Ideas (at least for the next few months) because of this major exciting news I kept referring to yesterday. (Keep reading.)

You will notice the site has been recently revamped. Instead of writing new e-zines, I will include all content in the first instance in my blog and then it will be added to the Wall of Fun. Check it out here to see new pictures of the English seaside and learn how to make two beautiful shell necklaces.
And onto the major exciting news. . .
Trumpets sounding!
Lions roaring!
Big Ben chiming!
Extremely Crafty would like to announce its Craft Against Cancer challenge for the Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign.
The cure rate for childhood cancers is 75%. Wouldn’t it be brilliant if it was 100%?

The Royal Marsden plans to challenge this and Extremely Crafty wants to help.
Donate (via http://www.justgiving.com/CraftAgainstCancer/) or help us fundraise and we will tell the world about your efforts on our Fundraiser page with a photo and link back to your blog or website.
Suggested ways you can help:
  • Donate a day’s proceeds from sales on Etsy.com
  • Give the profits from a handmade goods raffle or auction
  • Contribute the takings from a cupcake bake sale
  • Organize your own amazing Extremely Crafty Craft Against Cancer event
  • Host a craft fair and donate the door entrance fee
  • Sell tickets to a Speedy Seamstress Contest
  • Sponsor a Knit-a-thon (Last needles up wins!)
Please will you help me to spread the world using the power of the Internet. Wouldn't it be cool if we could unite crafters globally against cancer?

Hi Michele, thank you for the comment on my blog. I would LOVE to be a part of this! I'm just waiting for approval from eBay.ca to list the page that is shown on my blog. I'm giving 100% of the final selling price to the Northern Cancer Fund. I will e-mail you, thanks so much! :)
