Donation Worthy????

Hello my crafty friends, I hope you are staying warm where ever you are. I'm back today because I need your trusted opinion on whether the start of my projects are donation worthy. You see the owners of Utz Potato Chip have a Pink Out for all women's cancers at their mansion every May. They give away lots of door prizes-well you buy a ticket for the door prizes, all for the cause. Anyway they take donations of many things to give out and I signed up to make some things to donate. I've only made a few things thus far, but starting to doubt myself on whether they are really donation worthy. So that is where I need your help. Please let me know your true feelings on whether these items are good enough to donate for this cause and if you won one of them would you be happy with any of these. Please don't worry about hurting my feelings either! I really want to know, it would hurt me more to donate something that isn't worth it. Ok?!!!

Ok here we go, this is what I have so far. 

Up first are ornaments that I made to look like snowmen in little hats. I plan on making glittered ornaments with the floor polish as well and some fabric ones.

Farmhouse stuff is so in, so I made this wooden sign about home. Kept neutral because of not knowing who will get it or their color schemes.

With the "home" left over from the above project, I use it to make this shadow box. I cut out more "love" in white cardstock and stacked them to get dimension. Added the cool rustic paper and my vinyl saying and dimensional daisies. I tried to keep this neutral too because of not knowing people's color schemes.

Here it is angled so you can see the dimension of the home and daisies.

So what do you think? Are these good enough to donate to this worthy cause, would you be happy with any of these as a door prize???? Or should I scrap them and start over? Thank you my crafty friends, you are the best and I trust and value your opinions!!!

Crafty hugs,

WOWZER! these are truly AMAZING, I would be thrilled to bits to any or ALL, love the faces on the ornament in their little hats and the sparkle inside them, they are such fun. The signs are just so lovely with great sentiments, I would be thrilled to get either of them.

What clever and great ideas you have. Look forward to seeing more of what you are going to donate.

Carol L said...

Are you kidding me? Worthy enough!? Good heavens Brenda, you are way too critical of your work! Any one of these items would make a fabulous donation, hands down! I LOVE those adorable little ornaments and the sign - I'd like to hang that one in my home right now! The framed artwork is beyond incredible with all of the weathered wood and pretty flowers! Everything looks gorgeous and if anyone thinks these aren't donation worthy, I would strongly disagree! Everything is beautiful - NICE JOB!

Liz said...

You asked for an honest opinion, Brenda, so here it is.....they are all amazing! I would be more than happy to win any one of these beautiful creations. I'm sure they will be appreciated by the people lucky enough to win them. xx

MaryH said...

I am being totally honest! I think each of these projects would be a real treasure for anyone to win. Don't you feel like either is something that you should hesitate to donate. I love all of these, but I especially liked those gleaming snowmen. Way to go, and this group is lucky to have your donating talent!!! TFS & Big Hugs.

Gorgeousness, sis..
I’m not into snowmenat all being from Downunder where we have summer Christmas.. but these are sooo cute and eye appealing.
The plaques.. my utter favourite is the shadow box, it’s superb, love the dimension,and soft flower touches. But there are others who’d really love the rusticness of the simple sign like home sweet home. So praying along asking the Lord God to keep giving you wisdom as He has already done.
If any lack wisdom, let him ask if God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not. But let him ask in faith... James 1
Hugs and prayers dear Brenda, these are just “ fine and dandy” !!!!!! :D
