My Mind's Eye has graciously donated two great prize packs with over a $50.oo retail value each! My choice of what to use them for, and my choice is to raise money to feed the homeless at the Corner Stone Rescue Mission. $1.92 buys a meal for a person in need, raffle tickets will be $2.00. Buy has many as you like between now and Friday, December 17 to win one of these great packs.

Each pack has nine doubled sided papers, a diecut sheet, chipboard shapes, ribbon, brads, stamps and each pack comes with a stack of My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas papers.

The first one pictured is I Believe...photos of the paper did not load, but there are nine double sided papers that go with this line, too. This one is Holly Jolly.

One of my favorite parts of this store is your amazing generosity and the will to help others in need! We all have been blessed with so very much in our lives, that this is such an easy way to give back. $11.52 feeds 6 people, $23.04 feeds 12! How amazing and easy is that!

Thank you!

I just wanted to say "Thank you" to all of you who came in and donated to the Food Drive. I really appreciate all that you do for me and it is so wonderful to give back to the community! The kids had fun loading up the KOTA Food Drive Shopping Carts at the Parade of Lights, last night. They loaded over 40 pounds of food. Pretty cool!
Again, thanks for all you do!
