This is it! The final auction in Joey’s Auction!
This last auction is a combo one: Meet Joyce McCartney of Fort Wayne, Ind., who also donated the wine goodies and the dichroic jewelry set; and Dana Shaffer, of Stow, Ohio. (Remember, if you’d like to make a donation for Joey’s Auction to Elim Christian Services but not make any bids, you can do so through PayPal — use e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org — or check. If you opt for a check, leave a comment so I can e-mail you my address.)
What: Dana — Two magnets from my The Angry Cupcake collection and two sets of 12 handmade cards.
The angry cupcakes (one boy and one girl) are trained in all martial arts, including karate, kung fu, juditsu and sudoku. They will be the last line of defense between you and that pint of double chocolate chunk peanut butter cup surprise ice cream sitting in your freezer. So next time you’re mindlessly heading to the fridge for a late night snack, WATCH OUT! Cupcake is on duty 24/7. These cupcake are made from stiff felt, Eco-Fi felt (made from recycled plastic bottles) and black regular felt. Fabric glue bonds him tightly together. Magnet is strong enough to hold photos or several sheet of paper.
Each set of 12 homemade cards is made from acid-free scrapbook paper and includes 12 envelopes. A dainty bow keeps the set together and makes them pretty for gift giving. Perfect for that friend you want to keep in touch with the old-fashioned way or to use as thank you cards. All cards are blank inside.
Joyce — What little girl (or big girl with a little-girl-streak) doesn’t need a bag to carry her lipgloss and play (or real) cell phone? This cute little grab bag is made with pink cotton twill and yellow cupcake print cotton novelty fabric that has some glimmer to it. The bag’s longer handle fits through the shorter one for a unique closure, and there’s a lavendar topstitch using crochet cotton around the handles and opening. Machine wash and dry.
How long: Dana — Since birth. I came out with glitter and glue in hand.
Joyce — I started crocheting when I was 8 and just picked up sewing and beading in the last five years.
Where: Dana — I have a couple shops on Etsy: The Angry Cupcake and Button Fuzz. There’s a rumor I’m on Twitter, but I’m most active on Facebook these days.
Joyce — I’m on Facebook and have a blog, j.a.m. Creations. I blog on crafts for work, called Crafty Living, which is also found on Twitter and Facebook.
Why: Dana — I heart Jaclyn.
Joyce — I love creating for a cause. I love how Jaclyn uses her jewelry making skills to do good (i.e. the Joey’s Hot Dog necklaces), and when she approached me to do this, I could not say no. And, I almost instantly knew what I’d make for this auction. Also, I have a great-nephew who may be autistic and anything we can do to learn more about autism is best for everyone.
This auction will be open until 11.59 p.m. Friday, Aug. 13. Each day through Saturday, I will post two to three auctions. If you like the item up for grabs, place your bid in the comments, and be sure to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you should you win. Each item will be a separate post, and each post will indicate when that particular auction is over.
