November Charity Add-On Kit!

Hello friends

Today the reveal of the November Charity Add-On Kit in aid of Ronald McDonald House, 
Camberwell.  Very prompt this month although I cannot take credit,
it is all thanks to my family again - my mum is a die-cutting diamond!

What does the kit contain this month?
I have had some lovely button and string tie envelopes especially made.
These took some hunting down! Finally, a British lady living in Hong Kong, 
running a bespoke stationery website came to my rescue.
My idea is to have these with a little key charm - a place for your secret recipe.  
A little chalkboard sign too -
it complements the one from the last kit.

Also included - a little shopping notepad, essential to list all the ingredients you need
before you go shopping.

A butterfly!  How could I forget a butterfly? I thought it was about time 
each of you had one to adorn the front cover.

And, to keep your book completely organised, divider tabs, five assorted colours, 
you can colour-code your book and/or write on the edge of each tab.
Of course, the recipe card too - Date Crumble Cake this month,
delicious cold but warm with custard is also very yummy! 
As always, with each kit you will receive full instructions and a lucky number.
Amazingly again the winner will pick 6 stamp sets from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.

The price for this month's kit is £5.50 - this includes postage and packing.  

A PayPal button is below but if you prefer to pay by cheque then just
drop me an email - 

If you wish to buy more than one kit I think I may have finally created the button
with the facility to do just that!
(It has only taken me a few months to crack it....!)

The lucky number draw for October's Kit will be within the next day or two -
Elliott will pick out the winner.

I will just talk a little bit about December's kit - this is going to be a SPECIAL one! 
Not just because it is Christmas but it will also be the final one for the Recipe/Notebook.
It will be larger than normal and also some additions will be made to the lucky number prize :)
Anyway, I must not get ahead of myself ....

In case any of you have missed any details regarding the Charity Kits,
please do not hesitate to get in touch.  There is still spare kits available from 
the very beginning - never too late to catch up :)

Huge thanks to you all for purchasing, these little kits are such a brilliant way to
raise money for a very special charity.

Yesterday was a hospital day and it was an amazing breakthrough,
Elliott was able to have a CT scan wearing his mask clipped down to the table!
I was allowed to be in the room to prepare him and then stepped into the monitoring room during the scan. It was my job to speak to Elliott through the microphone - it was just like the
ones you see at the supermarkets - press the button down to talk.
I had to resist the urge to say "hello shoppers, today's offer is...." or "clean up in aisle 9!"
Instead I remained composed and did a countdown of time and, with the help of the
radiotherapists, explain what was happening.
This means we are now back on schedule for the treatment to start very soon.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
Take care friends.

Morning Christine,
Well done Elliot in overcoming the mask. Good luck with the treatment it will be over before you know it.
The kit looks lovely Christine, I didn't purchase one as I already have something similar which I have had for years. I would like to purchase the date cake recipe if thats possible please.

Hello Christine, brilliant news regarding Elliott. You must be brimming with pride. Have ordered the add on kit. Made the coconut and lemon cake yesterday - went down very well with family members. I have laminated my recipe cards so they don't get ruined. Have a good weekend and hope all goes well with the car. Janice xx

Great news! Well done Elliott and of course, Christine for maintaining composure! Quite a breakthrough.
On another note that Date Crumble Cake looks amazingly delicious - my mouth was watering just looking at the picture! What stars your family are with the preparations. Hope they got some cake :)
Have a great weekend.

Carole Z said...

Evening Christine, such good news about Elliott! Love the new ad on and just ordered mine! Hugs for a happy weekend, Carole Z X

Toni said...

Hello Christine, well done on the new kit, it's lovely.
An even bigger well done is appropriate I think for Elliott going so much further with his treatment. All the 'home helping' with the mask and 'Bob' has obviously paid dividends and helped him big time. I knew he could do it and I just hope things keep going in the right direction for you all.
Have a good weekend
Toni xx

Sally said...

Hi Christine,
I am so pleased to hear that Elliott is dealing so well with 'bob' and the mask, it certainly sounds like you have finally turned a corner. Well done Elliott, I think you deserve all the McDonalds you want. But then again, not very heathly. Christine, I will be getting the kit, it's a lovely kit, I like the idea of 'the secret recipe' .
Take care, enjoy the weekend. Sally xx
