I want to take a minute to do a HUGE shout out for the success we had with the charity auction for postage a couple of weeks ago. It was my best auction ever. I got a couple of donations for postage from people who didn’t even bid on an item.

I did have the best of luck. Everyone responded right away and within a day or so, all the packages were sent out and on their way to their new owners. By now, even with slow postage, I think all of the packages should have been delivered.
About the auction, Bonnie L wrote:
“I love your “mail call” emails. Always so much fun to see what others send you. Just a thought, The Pink Shoelaces, which I love, too, has a “buy me a Coffee” button. What a great idea, and I have sent money to her. Why don’t you do that for your blog to make it easy to send you postage money? I would be more inclined, I never remember to send you a check or actual money.
Keep up what you are doing, I love your blog!”
Bonnie this is a great idea. I talked with Kayla and she thought it was a good idea too. I will add a button to the bottom of community quilt posts. The money earned from that will go into the postage fund.
Here is what Kayla created so you will know what it looks like….
