The Thyroid Cookie Break went great. We packed up at least 50 art pack's to send and to take to Thyroid Support meetings. While everybody else did asrt packs I sewed up some fruit and sandwichs for kids. Mostly we brain stormed new ideas. Some hit the trash real quick, some went on file, some are on are future projects. It was all fun. We got some crazy ideas and some not so crazy. One was to take our lawn recliners to the park and dress silly. Like a costume party at the park for a GD Coffee Break. That went in the trash...people think we are crazy enough with out advertising it,lol. Another was to had out out cards. These cards have Thyroid symptoms on them. GOOD IDEA. This is a keeper and on file for future project. Got to make up the cards first. That takes $$$$. Which we are quite short on at the moment. A contest is also a future project and a calendar for next year. We did a calendar in 2010. That one had our Chili cartoons. Next year we would like to have pictures of people, pets and kids with our Thyroid designs. That is also where the contest comes in. Watch for it in the near future. Actually I think we will launch it in August for our 3rd Anniversary.
Thyroid Coffee Break Fund Raiser. ....well that did not turn out so good. But I am not a good Fund Raiser. Just don't have it in me I guess. So what did I do? I opened an online store with all my designs and cartoons. It is called ElainesCoffeeBreak Store on Zazzel.com You can find the link on a few pages here or go on my Face Book page and see some of the crazy things I have. Just click on the picture and it goes right to the store. Please give me some feed back on what you like and don't like. There are some really crazy things there. Not all of them will stay up in the store. But they will make you smile and even laugh. And well that is my goal. But, it would help if you all bought something to keep this old GD Coffee Break up and running. So many projects on file. Should keep me out of trouble for a few months at least.
Oh yes and the Thyroid Cook Book is still looking for recipes go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And last but not least... I am still writting my book with all my crazy stories of my life dealing with Graves' Disease and TED. Many of my Original Poems. things to make you smile and things to make your life easier to live. I have a lady willing to proof read it. Now I just need a publisher. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
So this retired,lol person leaves you today with this thought...
"Retirement is the time when you never do all the things you said you wanted to do if you only had the time."......LOL
