4th Annual Burns Halloween Carnival

I love this time of year. Not because by this time of year I am totally broke and only have spending to look forward to in the months to come. That's not why I love it.

I love the weather change and the fun and the food and the excitement that begins in October.

One of those things is our annual Burns Halloween Carnival. Food. Fun. Fright. Okay, not really fright, but whatever. This year we are going to do it Friday, October 21 from 4:30-whenever. (unless there is a trunk or treat...then we will do it the week before.) We are going to keep it at the Seville neighborhood park...off Keyenta and Irving, (up in the Ventana area.)
Here's how it works.

You bring a dish of food and a Halloween game to share. Voila! Carnival. It has been a lot of fun in the past and have no doubt it will be again this year.

RSVP is necessary to keep things organized. It helps us avoid duplicated game and food. So please email me, stef.burns @ gmail.com if you are interested in attending and let me know what food and game you want to bring.

Let the rompus begin!!

Steam Cleaner

Judy Tye is hosting a potluck dinner in her backyard Tuesday September 20th @ 6:00 PM. Everyone is invited to attend. Please bring something yummy to share. Since Judy has several ponds in her backyard she has asked that children be left at home (lap babies are ok). This is a casual and fun activity to socialize and enjoy the beautiful surroundings in Judy's backyard.

We are giving away 3 pieces of furniture to anyone who will take them. The picture isn't phenomenal and the desk is partially dissembled (but VERY easy to reassemble.)

Table: 4'W x 2.5'D x 2.5'H, white legs, light pine top, solid wood, needs a good cleaning

Entertainment Cabinet: 2.5'W x 20"D x 28"H, grey and light pine particle/pressed board, 4 shelves, 1 plexiglass hinged door, surface scratches, fair condition.

Computer Desk (use your imagination for how it looks): hinged drawer for the CPU on the left, small pull-out drawer box that sits on top of the desk, 3 roll out drawers on the right hand side (bottom one large enough to hold letter size file folders)
5'W x 2.5'D x 2.5'H, honey pine color pressed/particle board, a few scratches and surface blemishes but in good condition

GGYR Craft Fair

Hello Friends and fellow Crafters,

I wanted to share with you the opportunity to join us at the Galloping Grace Youth Ranch Craft Fair. This is a great organization and here is a little bit of what is about.

Galloping Grace Youth Ranch is a not for profit organization whose mission statement is “To bring pure joy to children”. We encourage children to believe in themselves and introduce them to the love and therapy of horses. Our main purpose is to allow children to come at no cost and experience the unconditional love of a horse. Everyone who comes has the opportunity to care for the horses and learn what it takes to maintain the ranch, all while building a personal relationship with the horses!

We will be hosting our 5th annual Pumpkin Patch this year. We are set up on the corner of Irving and Coors Blvd at 4349 Irving Blvd NW. We use this event as an opportunity to raise money and bring awareness to our Youth Ranch.

Last year Galloping Grace Pumpkin had the pleasure of serving several thousand people in just one month! We gave 2,635 rides on our horses and many families returned more than once to enjoy our Pumpkin Patch. We provide a unique environment for families to come and enjoy Fall and not only pick the perfect pumpkin but run through our corn maze, decorate pumpkins, dress up scarecrows, participate in duck races, rope our wooden steers, participate in our petting zoo, and of course—ride a horse!

This a great opportunity to promote your business. I have been involved in this organization for a little over a year and was blessed to be able to be at last years pumpkin patch.

The event will be running for 2 weekends in October. The weekend of October 15th & 16th and October 22nd & 23rd. The event will start at 9am until 5pm. The cost for the spot is $75 for a day and you will receive a discount for the more days you commit too. 1 day is $75, 1 entire weekend is $125, both weekends is $225. I will need to receive the contract ASAP, email or mail and then the $75 to hold your spot. The full amount will be due by October 5, 2011. The space will be 10X10, you will need to provide your own table(s), chairs and covering.

I will only accept 1 of any specific business (ie: Pampered Chef, Avon, Tastefully Simple, Lia Sophia) per day. If you would like me to help you get matched up with another person in your business or would like to share the space please let me know & I will do my best. We will accept as many crafters as we can. If you know of a business that would be interested in a spot please forward this email.

This is a great way to get promote your business or sell your product. We had approximately 2,000 people come through the Pumpkin patch each of those weekends last year. This is also an amazing cause to support and help children enjoy the opportunity to experience horses.

Please email me or call me if you need more information.
