Hey, guys! Just a monthly update here, to let you know how I and cheerycraft are doing as a whole.

I'm pretty busy myself lately. I just had a birthday not too long ago and so I wasn't on the computer as much as I would like to have been! So today or tomorrow I'm going to be full-out updating the profile page, as well as recognizing our first Cheeriest of Them All! I will also be putting that Livejournal calendar to use, to let you know when I won't be as available as I normally would (such as when school kicks in).

Cheery Craft itself is doing great! We're a bit slow, but that's just fine. We've actually got 70+ members! Is that not truly amazing? I'm so proud! We seem to have a big load of lurkers though, so I would just like to prod you guys right now into some action. I know you're all just itching to participate.

So, to all of you cheery crafters out there, I give you a big e-hug! Thanks for joining, thanks for lurking, thanks for participating, and thanks for your time reading this announcement. Have a great day, you guys. Happy crafting!

♥ Joa

Subject: a mentor & friend
Security: Public
My name (Note: First names only!): Jessi
Their name (Note: First names only!): Mark "Wags" and Kathy
Their relation to you (i.e. best friends of five years, bummed co-worker, stepmother, etc.): former swim coach and all-around good egg & his wife
Age/gender/location (state/province/country): 50's?/ m & f/ Iowa, USA
Their story: Wags was the coach of our swim teams in high school.  I never swam for him, but I managed the boys' team for three years.  Wags is the guy who inspires everyone- he gets high school boys to swim & run & lift at 5am, convinces the slowest, fattest person on the team they can win their race, and reminds everyone they're swimmin gbecause they love it.  Wags constantly said "IIITBIUTM" (if it is to be, it's up to me), "if it were easy, everyone would be good," etc.  
  In high school, having Wags dissapointed in me was more devastating than my parents' dissapproval.  Conversly, when he was proud, I might have well won the Olympics, Nobel Prize, and Tonys all at once.  Wags is now fighting a rare cancer on his spine.  It's scary to see someone I always considered so strong strucl down.  He's traveling from Iowa to University of Nebraska for new treatments, with Kathy, his wife, at his side.  They are devout Christians who continue to see God in all of this, but could really use some cheeering up!

Favorite hobbies: Wags-anything to do with water or his children/grandkids.  Kathy, I don't know.
" color(s): Our school colors were orange and black.  He's coached a couple of other schools, too, but I don't know their colors off hand.
" music type/artist(s): ?
" animal(s)/pet(s):again, our school was the Tigers. 
" candy/snack(s): Wags loves ice cream- in fact, he eats a bowl almost everynight!  And, peanut butter/ mayo/ dill pickle & lettuce sandwichs.
Do they have a "style"?:  ?
What you think they would really appreciate: anything sincere and uplifting.  I'd love to see Kathy get something to pamper herself.  Not only does she care for Wags during all this, she works and keeps all his friends and former students updated online!
What you think they would absolutely hate:  nothing I can think of.
Any allergies or pet peeves: ?
Clothing size (measurements are not necessary but appreciated): probably a L or XL shirt for Wags.
Shoe size: ?
Any wishlist(s): anything that says BOO cancer YEA you!  (you get my drift)
Any blog(s): http://www.caringbridge.org/cb/inputSiteName.do?method=search&siteName=markwagner1
Mailing address (do not change this): Comment with your e-mail and I will send it to you

So I've finally gotten everything assembled for the first package I'm sending out. It will go to Kelly's grandmother Lois. I really hope she enjoys it.

As I said in my posts, I am not the most crafty person but I do my best. I mostly scrapbook and have dabbled at making cards in the last year on and off. I am horrible at knitting or sewing and I cannot draw to save my life, so it makes coming up with some ideas a little harder sometimes.

This will go out in the mail tomorrow morning :)

Awww... this is such a great community!

My sister received the first of her cheery mail today (I'm in Canada and it's a lil slow but it gets here ;)

It was from thatonegurl and it rocked!!!

Kayleigh loved the stickers, and having her own envelope and it made my sister smile to see someone cared enough to try to add a little sunshine to their day! Definitely surprised her and Kay loved the PowerPuff Coloring book as well!

Thanks so much again!

(I almost crazy glued my fingers together this evening working on my packages... I will be sure to post as soon as I am ready to send them out, I'm not the most crafty person, but I am sure any bit helps :)

in her life. She has been finding it hard to get another job and gets very frustrated quickly, even though she has had many interviews she believes she is too old now to be hired. .

Hey! So I just joined recently, and I figured I could try to help in the promoting business, so I made us a banner. I hope you like it~

I'm thinking it might be a little big for not being under a cut, but if anyone has a problem with it, please tell me so I can edit the post ^_^;

I hope to be crafting for many of your friends and family very soon~ xD

I will be sending your grandma her gift today after I get myself some stamps.

I got her a stationery set I found at half price books yesterday.

I would post pictures, but I wrapped it before I realized that I should've taken one.

I hope she likes it!
