Woot...Woot....another great success!

The 2010 Crop took place yesterday at the Little Chute Civic Center yesterday (February 6th, 2010). We had a blast and raised around $3000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (I have to recount and wait for the online crop to wrap up....and then I will have an exact total for you :) )

Some of the highlights of the day were:
The Make n' Take provided by Shelley Olson was a big hit.  She had these cute little paper milk cartons that we made and filled with candy.  I think everyone made one.

Another big hit was the generous donation of a 6"x12"piece of vinyl donated by Expressions Vinyl to every goody bag.  Some ladies were not sure what it was for.....but.....once one lady came up to the cricut and we cut out a fun design....when word spread....we had a line waiting to cut out a vinyl decal for family rooms, bathrooms, outdoor signs, car windows, and more!  Enjoy ladies!  If you take a photo of your vinyl sign or hanging on your wall, I would love to add it to the blog!


Here are a few pictures from the crop:
