April 22, 2022 at 10:05PM

Day 66/100: I made these earth buttons to celebrate the Earth, know more about the environment and promote conservation. Click here or click on the image below to check them out. Proceeds from the sale of these buttons will go to the postage fund of Dress A Girl Australia's dress distributions and education without borders projects perhaps later in the year and definitely in 2023.

Day 3/100 : the100dayproject

 February 15, 2022 at 12:28AM 

Day 3/100 : 'what is a day like for a crafter'...for a few minutes and/or a few hours a day...and for the next 100 days (97 to be exact) the possibilities are endless and limited only by one's imagination.

i enjoy making buttons so for today (Day 3/100 of the #the100dayproject) I made myself these '86K for a cure' buttons. I committed to walking 86km in March for the 86kids who are diagnosed with cancer each month. Any of these buttons pinned on the hat that I wear every morning when i go for a walk will remind me of the 86kids.

Merry Christmas everyone!

 Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas and a very happy, safe and covid-free 2022!

Sharing the Christmas Spirit with Handmade Cards this Christmas

Due to the pandemic, I had to temporarily put on hold any dress distributions but for this Christmas I made handmade cards. A few of the Christmas handmade cards are below which I remembered to take a picture - 61 of them which I dropped off this morning at NSW Meals on Wheels, Liverpool Branch. They will be distributed together with Meals on Wheels' remaining meals for distribution this Christmas.

My heartfelt thanks to MaryAnn Harris of the City of Liverpool Meals on Wheels for giving me the chance to share the Christmas spirit to those who need it the most this Christmas. Thank you.

Support my challenge to restore sight!

 I'm taking on Fred’s Big Run this August to STEP UP TO RESTORE SIGHT! 

My goal is to raise funds for The Fred Hollows Foundation to continue the legacy of an Australian legend, Fred Hollows. 

Because right now, 4 out of 5 people who are blind don't need to be...

For as little as $25, you can restore sight to someone who is blind, and change their life forever!

Please make a donation and support my challenge to give the gift of sight. Click on the image above or click here to make a donation.

Fred Hollows' dream was to live in a world where no one was needlessly blind, sponsor my challenge and let's honour his memory together.

Thank you for your support.
