When students return to Sandy Hook Elementary the National PTA is hoping their new school looks like a winter wonderland decorated with homemade snowflakes and you can help.
The PTA is asking for people to make snowflakes and send them by Jan. 12. Be as creative as possible, remembering that no two snowflakes are alike.
Please send all snowflakes and donations to:
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514
Hey where is Jami?? no new sketch, no hi-how-are-yous? I hope all is okay and she's just too busy shopping for christmas)))
Sorry to have been MIA so long, but I've been super busy baking tons of treats for friends & family this year in an effort to cut back on spending, and I've been working every night as well so haven't had much time 2 sleep. Thankfully I'm off 2night and got some rest today.
Picking out our final sketch for the month now...bbs.
Melody that is a great idea - I wasn't even sure if they would reopen the school from the news I have seen (unavoidable it snuck up on me as I have been avoiding any news reports on the shooting - it is just too heartbreaking for me).
The children will not return to the old school. It is nearly impossible. According to our local news channel, they may instead demolish it & build a memorial. The other kids will go to a middle school which is not in use now. A lot of volunteers are working to clean & paint that school. I guess that is the place where these snowflakes will go to. It is a truly great idea.
I think that's good!! I think it would be way hard for those children to have to go back into that school!! Can you imagine?? Bless their little hearts!! DD and I will be making snowflakes over Christmas break!!
I read in the lifejournals yesterday that the whole thing is a big cover up of a more serious attack - that the boy being blamed for the shooting could not have physically done it - and there's someone else who got away with it.. scary to think so but it sounds possible (((
Hey Jami, I have been thinking about you. Sorry I have been MIA but I had to finish my classes (2 research papers! UGH!!). We got 8 inches of snow yesterday so I have been snapping photos like crazy. I will post so that I can share the wintry beauty with you. I remember you saying you don't get the seasonal changes in your tropical paradise. Look forward to being back in the scrappy game in January.
I'm still working on mine! have the pics for the #3 but no papers. have the pics and papers for #2 bonus but the third one should come first) Have an idea for the last bonus too - love the sketch! - just need some time) will catch up soon!
I wanted to get all 6 done but it's not gonna happen. No biggie though...I got more than half of them done, 4, and due to other challanges I actually got 14 layouts done this month! That is a record for me! Yay!
