It’s finnnnnally here……Flower Power 2020!! This is a brand new class that I hope everyone will love….and I hope it inspires you to not only make beautiful things but to make someone else’s day! Watch the promo video and check out the little backstory below.
This class is for two good causes: supporting Ellen Hutson’s small business by using her beautiful flower stamps, and raising money for World Central Kitchen too! You can get this class FREE if you buy either one of the listed stamp sets on the website here, or FREE if you guy $75 worth of anything from Ellen….or you can choose to pay $10 for the class in addition to shopping, so you can help feed hungry people through World Central Kitchen!
A few weeks back, while the end of the StayHomeStaySafe orders looked soooo far away, I was trying to figure out a way I could help do something to assist someone else with my classes website. Not many of us have excess money, so it was going to need to be something special!
One cause I’ve fundraised for before – and give to monthly myself – is World Central Kitchen. So I wanted that to be a beneficiary somehow.
I also was heartbroken for my friend Ellen Hutson, who had to close her business temporarily under governor’s orders. I don’t know much about retail but man do I know it’s a bad time right now! Ellen was able to go in by herself to try to fill orders, but got so backed up as just one person….she’d pack up a ton of orders and was still staring at stacks of more! I wanted to do something to help her get back up and going once she was able to reopen…..and I came up with an idea.
I approached some of my friends from Ellen’s design team, and got takers right away – everyone wanted to help out! We met on Zoom and giggled and planned….what a great time it was to just be together; this was the first Zoom for several of them!
We spent some time putting together our lesson videos and taking our pics, and I spent more time assembling the class and getting everything set up. We were delighted to hear Ellen was open again, and had staff in to help catch up on orders again! Last weekend she had a big sale, so we waited til today once they were caught up from those…..so let’s all inundate her with more orders for this class!
