Description

THANKS + GIVING FUNdraiser!!


Background:

What happened in Butte County is unfathomable. My heart continues to still ache for the victims, and what they have been through and the struggles they continue to face.

In an effort to bring joy and positive energy during this holiday season to the Camp Fire victims, and in light of what I belive to be the main focus of Thanksgiving (giving thanks and giving back), I wanted to organize an event that would give while also encompassing the power of community, creativity and crafts - and having a bit of FUN while FUNdraising!! In brainstorming how to donate - I had this idea of bringing people together in a joyful and spirited way, crafting something for their loved ones to keep for years to come, while also having the proceeds go towards a worthwhile cause.

So - as the idea continued to grow - I thought, what would be better than DIY Calligraphy Christmas ornaments? Something to keep on your own tree, or to give away as gifts to friends and family! Every year growing up, I loved unwrapping these little treasure to hang on the tree. Each one had a story and was meaningful in its own special way.


Event Details:

+ DIY Christmas Calligraphy Acrylic Ornaments

  • Every ticket purchase recieves five (5) blank acrylic ornaments (3.5 x 3.5" - Misc. Shape Packs)
  • Crafting tables will be set up with markers so you can design to your hearts content
  • Templates with holiday sayings will be available - if you would like your ornaments to mimic my calligraphy style
  • Lettering guidelines will be setup - to give you an general idea on how to begin creating your ornaments
  • Ribbons and string will be available to finish your ornaments
  • I will be there all day to help and assist! Please feel free to ask me any questions on lettering and ornament design!

+ Come when you can! This is not a set schedule type of event - please feel free to stop by at your convenience. The holidays - as we all know - are busy, busy times. I wanted people to have the flexibility to arrive at a time that fits into their schedule, and stay as long as they are able to.

+ Light (non-alcoholic) refreshments will be available

+ Definitely kid-friendly!

+ Have fun and make a memory! Follow the calligraphy templates for the ornaments - or make them however which way you want them to be. Completely up to you, the designer!

+ Only have a quick minute that Saturday? No problem! Feel free to stop by during 12-5pm, and grab your blank ornaments. Each package will have a template and instructions on how to design your ornaments + what pens to use on the acrylic. DIY at home, or gift to someone crafty!


Notes:

+ 100% will be directly donated to people affected by the Camp Fire - the ornaments and craft supplies wil be covered by F&Q so that every ticket sold is a donation going towards those in need.

+ Additional donations accepted, but in monetary form only please.

+ More pictures to come of example ornaments! With all the events leading up to Thanksgiving - and going out of town to be with family - I wasn't able to snap a good picture. Trust me - it will be a joyful event!
