In Memory of Wendy Konoza - Crop

This weekend there will be a special crop in memory of my friend Wendy. Saturday would mark her 36th birthday. For the past couple years we always went to Treasured Memories to celebrate and so why would this year be any different? I expect there will be some tears, but I wish for more laughter than anything as that is what Wendy would want. The crop will be held at Treasured Memories  on Friday and Saturday where there will also be a silent auction for which the proceeds will be donated to "Wendy Konoza Memorial Award for Education" which you can read more about here. I have decided to donate one of my She Art creations.

 I was hoping to make a special one just for this crop, but I ran out of time. If you are interested in checking out what will be available, please stop by the store, or you can make a donation to the Wendy Konoza Memorial Award for Education.

I am looking forward to being surrounded by Wendy's friends and family this weekend and for all of us to have an amazing scrappy time by celebrating her life.

Take care friends.
