I just wanted to put a post out there about an upcoming event that I am hoping some of you might be able to attend!
A little background...a few years ago, some dear friends lost their little girl, at age 2, to Leukemia. As awful, tragic, and unimaginable as this is for most of us, they have since worked to help others to not have to go through it. They have done their own charity work and have set up fundraisers to put money toward research, and have donated to the Central New York Children's Hospital at University Hospital in Syracuse.
You can read Clara's story and see info about the family's fundraising efforts here:
Their next venture is....are you ready for this???? An ENTIRE weekend of scrap booking in the lovely Adirondack mountains! Imagine your luck that you tripped over my blog post to find out about this!!
