Happy Birthday Roberta!

Today is Roberta's birthday. She is such a sweetheart. I hope this was a special day for her. I was able to talk to Grandma Carol and David this week. Everyone seemed to have an awesome Thanksgiving.
Today I met with Molly Dillon. Molly heads up the local JDRF chapter here in Reno and Sparks. For the past two years I have been involved with making thank you gifts for the different events that the JDRF puts on. The thank you gifts always go to the Chair person hosting the event. It has been such an honor to have the opportunity to do this. Today Molly asked if I would be on the board that is in charge of special projects for JDRF. I would just be one of many involved, but I am so excited to have the chance to help at a whole different level of this wonderful organization. So tomorrow I am working on 14 thank you gift's that are needed by Tuesday afternoon for Wednesday's "Walk for a cure" awards ceremony. I will post some pictures before I take them in on Tuesday. They are super cheesy, but that seems to be what some people like. I am using scrapbook paper and taking the hand prints of the different kid's diagnosed with diabetes, tracing them, cutting them out and using them to make a "paper" quilt. I did this for an auction at FBCC. It was a huge hit. Sooooo I am hoping it will be for this also. Wish me luck.
