Hello Friends!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Monday and it is a GREAT Monday!!!!  The Craft & Tag Sale for Pups is over and we raised over $6,000.00 to help needy animals!!!!  It was an exhausting weekend, but thankfully we were able to commit days before the sale to clean, prepare and tag the majority of the items.  We were outside at 7:15am Saturday morning setting up (and even charged early birds $10 to shop before 9am!).

The weather turned out to be great and I think everyone was happy!!!!!  Here are some pictures!

Crafty Cre8tions table (graciously {wo}manned by my mom and aunt Vickie)

And.....we had some special guests come too! 
Here's former foster dog! He and his mommy Sarah came down to support the cause!

And Jimmy - who was adopted as a puppy from our shelter came to say HI too!

Here are three final pictures:

First - my mom being silly wearing a 'scarf' that could double as 'dreads' of the CSL's (Crazy Shelter Ladies) with her new duds from the sale
Matching Jacket and Shoes!

And finally......the rest of the CSL's
(Eileen, me, Patty, Cindy & Gretchen)...missing Beth H.

We have so many people to thank for our success this weekend! Too many to list here for sure,
but we couldn't of done it without all the 'spring cleaning' that was done and donated to the sale.
We had friends donate tables, tents, clothing racks, post flyers, share flyers on Facebook, bake items for sale, help set up, help work the sale, help breakdown the sale, etc. I could go on and on!

I'd also like to thank those crafty friends who I've made through Blogging and who were generous enough to send cards, stamps, other craft tools, one of a kind art pieces and monetary donations!!
I so appreciate your generosity to the CSL's and needy animals!!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!
