ISO Senior Living Sponsors

2 19bh2-001

Hello Super Awesome Stampers!

I visit senior living communities during the first and second weeks of the month. Residents gather in the activity room. I distribute greeting card making kits along with punched shapes and bows already attached to glue dots. We chat while assembling the cards. Sometimes we use the glitter glimmer sheets which is always a hit!

Sessions are more like art therapy. I talk about the fun color names and punches used.  The gorgeous ribbons provide visual and touch sensory experiences. I travel with assorted greetings and an ink pad so we can customize all occasion cards to the sentiment the resident wishes. The butterflies shown in the photo above will be featured in the May sessions. Bunnies are on the April designs.

I visit all care levels: independent, assisted and memory care communities. If I am able to speak to an activity director on the phone and secure a session commitment, I am usually booked for return sessions. Not everyone that is interested in a session is able to book one due to limited budget. Would you like to sponsor a session at a community in your area or where a family member or friend lives? Just let me know where you would like me to visit. I’ll call the activity director to offer a sponsored session. Sponsorship is easy with one simple cash or check donation from you.

I visit communities in the Durand, Eau Claire and Menomonie areas during the first week of the month. I’ll be criss crossing the Madison area and surrounding burbs during the second week of the month. I travel within an hour’s time from these areas and also visit communities along the interstate heading north of Madison on my trip up to Durand.

The residents really appreciate me visiting and I enjoy visiting the residents. The senior living sessions have been a part of my business for over 5 years. So I am experienced with leading the sessions and working with resident abilities or limitations.

Thank you for considering to sponsor a session. Please contact me if you or your company would like to sponsor a session. Have a super awesome day!

Fun at Weekend Paper Crafting Retreat

It’s been 2 sleeps since 20 paper crafters converged on Wildwood Retreat for 3 days and 2 nights of paper crafting fun. Lots of good food, conversation and creating papercrafts. We had the range of crafts from party favors, scrapbooks, greeting cards and digital design too. A sewing machine was humming too.

Tammy baked her birthday cake. She treated us to earl gray flavored cake and rich, buttery frosting for the bottom layer. The top layers were lemon poppyseed with lemon curd. Both delicious!

Tricia designed the Saturday night table favor. She did a nice job!

Julie caters the Saturday night meal. Sharon helps Julie with the prep. She featured greek dishes this time: falafel, stuffed grape leaves, greek baked beans, hummus and lettuce salad. Falafel was my favorite.
