Fortunately, most of the $1900 it cost to rent the chamber will go toward the purchase. Unfortunately, the total cost of the chamber is nearly $10,000!! and that's for a used one!
But, we're all making efforts in our own ways to help raise the money, and one of my ways is making and selling my nursing aprons. I designed this apron about 2.5 years ago when one of my dear friends, Kristin, mentioned that she'd like something with a little more "coverage" than the rectangular ones she'd seen. So, that's just what i did, and--if i do say so myself--they're awesome! I've made about 7 or 8 of them, and all of my friends/family who own one have loved it! (and should probably leave a comment stating such)
I only have time to make six of these between now and Dec 1, and i've already received 4 orders. So, i've got room in my lil' schedule for 2 more. You pick the fabric. You pick the trim (optional). I do the rest....except the nursing--you do that, too.
ALSO....i've got some Papa Murphy's coupon cards that I'm selling for $10 a piece. they have 8 coupon stickers on the back, and one of them is a buy-one-get-one--you get your money's worth right there!! Their take'n'bake pizzas are the best out there! (and seriously, even if you're a meat-lover, you gotta try their gourment veggie...yummmm)
ALSO....my sister-in-law was in town last weekend and she and I (well, mostly she) crocheted/knitted some really cute hats and lil' flowers that i'm selling for $18/hat and $4/flower. Here's a photo of three of the hats. I could make these in just about any color and any size...
ALSO...Reid and I hosted our very first Poker night last weekend--we played with the donations, which all went to Cynthia. I have insanely generous friends who brought us $220 closer to our goal. And we had so much fun doing it!! If anyone in the Denver area is reading this and thinking how much they'd LOVE a night of guilt-free poker, just lemme know! we'd gladly do it again...even though it was proven very early on in the night that Reid and I's gots no pokah skills...
