We had an intense last week of preparing for the Lima Lads and Lassies 4-H fundraiser. My sister Wendy is the leader and her daughter (my niece) Stephanie is a member of this group.
Cookie baking and packaging were the top priority! A baker’s dozen of families contributed cookies so we had about 150 dozen cookies to package. All trays were assorted except for the rosettes which were packaged in tins due to their delicate nature. Special orders were filled too for those that wanted to pick their varieties. Cookie sales benefit the entire group.
Two members of the group are going on 4-H trips so Stephanie and Lauren had crafts for sale as well to raise funds for their trips. I filmed a few Facebook live videos which are posted to my business facebook page so watch those to get the scoop. Search for Super Awesome Stamper Shirley Merker to find my business facebook page.
Sales were steady for cookies and many crafts found new homes too at the Ho Ho Ho Durand Expo was yesterday. We were thwarted by snowy and slick conditions so not as many shoppers ventured out. Both girls still have crafts for sale so contact me if you are interested in anything you see on the videos. Cookies in mugs are still available too or by the ice cream pail full.

Our booth – The candy cane, purple and gold ball and blue ball and garland trees are for sale too. $25 each tree or decorated window frame. Mix and match pricing, 2 for $45.

Stampin’ Up! made the price tags possible. I share in the cookie packaging video the stamping station. Glorious green which is retired color is the perfect match to stamp the 4-H shamrock on the price tags. Stephanie had an impressive stack of tags stamped and ready!
Thanks to all that baked, packaged, transported, set up and tore down the booth and made purchases during the sale! We appreciate all the efforts to make the fundraiser a success which helps the 4-H members uphold their 4-H pledge.
Hope to see you next year at the Ho Ho Ho Durand Expo!
