What can I DO to help?

This is the question that has been repeating over and over in my head for the past week as a result of these cruel floods.  How can I make a difference in someone's life that is currently shattered?  How can I lighten their load?  How can I make them smile again?  

I think the most obvious thing one could do it to help physically.  Get in there and clean up the mess.  Help them regain order in their home.  

But what if I don't have the time?  (stupid work)

So I have been trying to think out of the box.  I considered joining in with the Craft Auctions over at make it perfect.  I even thought of just giving money to the Premier's Appeal.

Then my thoughts went to the children affected.  What an awful childhood memory to have.  The day your house went under water and you didn't have time to take your treasured possessions with you when you were whisked out of the house.  It must be so frightening for a child to go through something like that.  

And that's where I got my idea.  I don't know where I am going to go with this idea right now, but I suppose I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in helping out in this way.  

Sewing softies for children.  

I'm not a very good sewer yet, so I thought maybe this is something that I would be successful with if I kept it simple.  
It is something quick and simple that could make the world of difference for a child.

What do you think??

The first time in my life I wish I didn't live in Brisbane.

My Madeit store is officially open! Freebies for the first few sales!

Greetings to you all on this strangely cold and rainy Monday Summer's morning!

Well my Madeit store is up and running and has some goodies in it.  To boost sales, more like START sales, I'm offering a little incentive, and it's only for my followers!!  The first 4 of my followers to purchase something from my store will receive an extra of the item they are purchasing.  Now I think that sounds confusing so if that is the case I'll explain it in a different way.  If you buy a greeting card from my store, I will include another free greeting card as a little thank you. 

Remember you have to let me know when purchasing the item you are a follower!!
