In Other Fun News.....

I have a fun little project to share that my mom and I are undertaking. In our home town in Michigan, one of my mom's dear friends is heading up a fundraising for Catholic Social Services. It's a non-profit that lends a hand to children waiting to be placed in an adoptive family. This luncheon also sends foster kids to camp -- a much needed respite for those kiddos! So, part of the lunch involves a craft sale. Items are donated and all the proceeds go to help the cause. So, feast your eyes on our project called.... My Pet Fish! So, this is how the project started --- with dozens upon dozens of colorful "fish!"


What are we going to do with all those fish??? Well, how about "dunking" them in some colored water i.e. soap! Here's our scented soap in progress....

The goal is, when we're done, to have the fish look like they are swimming in a bag, ready to find a home of their own!


And, when the afternoon was done, we had this many......


Twenty-some fishies ready to rock and roll! But, we're not stopping there. We decided as these fishes rub-a-dub-dub in the tub, they need a partner. How about some home-made and colorful wash rags too! So, my mom got started knitting.....


And, by the end of the weekend, we were OFF! We have about 7 as we speak!

 
And... we hope to knit up about 23! Luckily, we have until April! ;-) Hopefully we'll get the job done and these little fishies will swim their way to Michigan to help raise funds for kids in need! Wish us luck!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
