We don't like to "toot our own horn", but we wanted to share on behalf of a local group that is near and dear to our heart:
"The Quin Murphy Scholarship Foundation"
Andrew "Quin" Murphy was part of a dear family we've know for quite some time, through our Girl Scout connections. (You can read more about Quin's story on their website and facebook page.)
So when they approached us and asked if we would donate a little something for their upcoming Silent Auction, of course we said YES! Money from the auction goes directly to local students, and we wanted to help. Our first question was "What's the theme?". We were told that Quin liked things with a "Dia De Los Muertos" vibe, so we ran with it. We didn't just make a single simple item...we wanted to make something SPECIAL that the guests at this shindig would FIGHT over, outbidding each other over and over to help get more money for those well-deserved scholarships!
So here's what we came up with:
A LARGE Gift basket, filled with handmade "Loteria" & Sugar Skull themed items, including a backpack, Zombie Baby, Krayon Keeper, Kleenex Kreature, Sewing Kit, Hairbows, Brooches, and MORE!
AND....a Cuddle Monster & Aviator Hat set in the craziest, softest blue checked fur, lined with "FIESTA" print and more!
Here's hoping that these items help the foundation help even MORE kids around the South Bay! We can't wait to see how these items go over!
Let us know what you think!
Please consider visiting their site and making a donation!
