Creative Entrepreneurship

You may recall this post where I wrote about super human being Eve Elzenga and her project, With Love from Friends, which provides artfully created Valentines to the elderly of our community who no longer have family in their lives.

(Couple of notes: the parts where I talked too fast and/or mumble – don’t worry, you didn’t miss anything. And I’ll slow down in the future, I promise. As I explain at the end, I’ll be buying a video camera so the quality will get better and more interesting. Allegedly.

Also – the part where I can’t remember a woman’s name – insert Katie.)

Here’s how are happy day went!

On to the photos.

Check out the wall color! Clearly, or at least I think, that Eve decorated the room to be perfect for this program to take place each January. Love the rich color.

Here’s the paper department I spoke of. (I can’t believe I said pre-made, in the video. What the hell does that even mean? They are made. Period.) The stack of paper on the chair is what Vickie and I brought with us. The top of the dresser in the background is full of paper too.

Drumroll please! My Happy Place.

I checked the other entry I wrote about this and I see the official card making schedule has concluded, understandably. Eve’s goal for 2012 was 1500 cards I believe – that’s a lot to get organized for the various agencies by February 14.

If you would like to still contribute cards, cash, supplies, contact Eve Elzenga by email or phone: 585 733-2579.

Edited to add – Eve emailed me this morning in response to my sending the link to this post to her and Annette – she’ll accept cards anytime.

And be sure to join us in January 2013 – it’s already on my calendar!

  1. What a great recap of such a fun day with you! The photos are gorgeous, but how could they not be in such fabulous surroundings. I don’t want to wait until February 2013 to do this again!


  2. Looks like a really good time! Why didn’t I know about this? I would have loved to participate! I guess I had better get out from the rock Ive been living under 😉


  3. Was glad to have taken part. I had a lot of fun.
