The #2020DecemberFundRAiser is nearing it’s end and the items that I contributed have been sold out. I do not do crafts, never have enjoyed doing them, so cutting, colouring, glueing, folding, drawing, sewing, knitting, jewelry making, etc. etc. are not for me. What I can do, however, is have photographs printed on items, so that is what I did this year for the fundraiser. Compared to all the gorgeous handmade items it all feels a little easy to have only uploaded pictures to a site so that I could have things made; it feels a bit as if I have taken a shortcut in a marathon. However, it did leave me with no mess, it wasn’t too time consuming and I had fun evenings looking at Richard Armitage pictures on my laptop. I’ve been pleased with the results (read here about how the cards came about) and in the end this is all for charity, so I won’t judge my own crafting laziness too harshly.
The deck of playing cards went for a whopping €155,- in the auction and I am so happy it sold so well for charity. Thank you so very much to the auction winner for being so very generous!
I had also contributed nine magnets (3 sets of 3) with Richard Armitage images to the fixed sale of fan items that is still ongoing (check out Guylty’s blog here or her Etsy auction page). Those few magnets sold out way sooner than I had ever anticipated, so thank you very much to the enthusiastic buyers! Should I ever do this again, I must remember to have more made…
Just after noon today I received the final order details for my items from Guytly, so I packaged it all and took it to the post office.
It took me a little while to get everything all written out (including a thank you card inside) and packed up and that was about as crafty as I ever intend to get. I can’t imagine how much more time this must be taking for Guylty to be doing that for all the items she is sending out. My admiration goes out to her for organizing everything so well and efficiently and for all the work she is doing.
Anyway, I am happy this charity fundraising has gone so well, I eagerly await to learn the final the amount that will go to LOROS. Thank you to everyone who participated in whatever way, shape or form! I hope everything arrives safely at their points of destination and I hope the items will give their new owners much joy.
