JLB Project Scrapbook Fundraiser

Next weekend I'll be participating in the JLB Project Scrapbook an actual participant. I am so excited! Not that it wasn't fun last year when I got to teach the make-n-take for the store. That was fun. (That's where I was when I broke my foot...oh, the memories...). This year I'll be there working on my own projects. I might finish my dream board. Or I might even actually scrapbook a few pages. I won't know til about 10 minutes before I get there, I'm sure. Heck, I might just sit there & chat with my friend Mindy.

So what is the JLB Project? Well, JLB stands for Jack's Little Brother. A gal I know through the store lost a baby to an umbilical cord accident a few years ago. Her family found out that Flagstaff has limited, if any, support for families who have lost a child. So to honor her son's memory, Anna & her husband started the JLB Project. The mission is to provide support to families who have lost a baby to miscarriage, still birth or infant death. Unfortunately (or fortunately, I guess) I've referred 4 or 5 families to them in the past year. All of them were thrilled with the support they received. And I have to tell you, Anna is the kindest, most compassionate woman I have ever met.

Even if you're not a scrapbooker...not interested in crafting at all...stop by Little America on Saturday, 2/26 & see what the JLB Project is all about. They'll be selling raffle tickets for some amazing prizes (including an iPad & a night at a Cottonwood bed & breakfast!) and you won't want to miss out on those!

Hope to see you there!
