We Have a WINNER!!!!

Thank you! Thank you! so much Suzy for making such a generous donation! Because of your selling cards at work we can now have the first raffle.

It was so exciting to see we have reached the first donation especially tonight. I've just come home from the doctor's with repetitive strain injury and my hand is now in a brace. I've been doing too much of my normal job and just too much blogging/emailing people about Craft Against Cancer. Over the past few days, I had taken a bit of a rest and trying not to use my hand. I'd been worried this whole Craft Against Cancer idea was not going to take off and I'd lined up all these wonderful prizes from such generous people, but coming home and seeing the donations reach our first target makes it worth all the while.

Now onto the raffle. Drum roll please....

This beautiful fairy made by Rita (for more adorable fairies, click here)....
is going to a new home....

in a land far, far away....
and her new human will be...
Shirley of Nannieflash!
It gives me the greatest pleasure to know that this little fairy is going to a wonderful home. It seems especially fitting that the fairy (or as my mother keeps calling her, the little angel) is going to live with Shirley since Shirley the first cheerleader for Craft Against Cancer. To spread the word about the devastating effects of childhood cancer, she revealed her own story in her blog and encouraged almost all of the first donors. Read about it here. My mother thinks it's a sign and you know, so do I.

Wow Michele, what a wonderful surprise, and shall I tell you something really ironic, my mothers name is Rita, I really carnt believe it. Thank you so very much and I absolutely love fairies (and Teddies) so I couldnt have asked for anything more appropriate for me to win. I will email you my address. With love and huge hugs Shirleyxxxxx
