Pinteresting Party

A sporadic post every day this week.  Whoa. 

Remember that time I met this girl from the internet?  Her name is Kim. You might know her from NewlyWoodwards fame.   I initially thought she might chop me into pieces during our first meeting.  That's what people from the internet do, right?  Turns out she has been an incredible influence on me.  She's incredibly involved, bubbly and motivating.  If you don't have a Kim in your life, find one.

Enough with my love letter.  The point of this point is to invite you to a party.  A party Kim and I are hosting for a great organization!

Who doesn't love a good crafting party that helps empower women? 

I have information for locals and my interweb friends.  Keep reading!

Local readers can join us:


Thursday, Sept. 19, 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Moline Public Library, 3210 41st Street, Moline, Ill. 61265

Get in touch with your crafty side at this fun, creative event. You’ll have the opportunity to try your hand at several crafty projects and take home your own creations – including a rustic chalkboard, fabric flower pin and body scrub.

In lieu of a cost for the workshop, please make a donation to Dress for Success Quad Cities. 100 percent of donations go to the organization, which empowers women toward economic stability by providing them with business-appropriate clothing, mentoring and professional development programs.

RSVP online!

When you RSVP, you will have the opportunity to donate to Dress for Success online through a secure PayPal transaction. Remember – all supplies will be provided. There is no cost to craft, get your swag bag or indulge in some delicious food.  I'm baking.  Get excited.

Not local? Want to help?

Your donation helps women working toward economic independence. Plus, if you RSVP now and donate at least $30 through the link below, We’ll send you a special swag bag and put together a small craft kit to complete the fabric flower pin on your own. (The kit will ship by October.) So you can help women and also participate in the craft night on your own time! 

Fun, right?  I thought so.

To take part, RSVP now online and donate securely through PayPal.

Feel free to pass this along to your friends and family. Share this invite to other women you think would be interested in making their own decorative signs, meeting other women and helping Dress for Success Quad Cities. The more, the merrier! (Please ask friends to RSVP if they plan to attend so I can be prepared with enough supplies.)

Thanks for your support!
