Dinner Benefit & Silent Auction for Connor's Cure!

Connor is a 1st grader at Madison Elementary School, in the Chinese Immersion Program. When he was 20 months old he was diagnosed with an AT/RT tumor in his brain. He has been fighting ever since. In February of 2016, we learned that Connor has cancer cells in his spinal fluid and a new tumor was found on his lower spine. He is currently undergoing treatments at Children's Hospital in Cincinnati, OH. Connor's road to recovery involves time away from the rest of his family, school and much travel to and from the hospital. The Rohde family could really use support carrying the burden of the medical and travel expenses.

Cub Scouts Pack 21 is hosting a Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction this Tuesday, March 22 from 4-7pm at the Moose Lodge in Waite Park, Minnesota.

Got Crayons?



These robot crayons are turning out mighty freaking cute I must say! I wish I realized soaking the crayons in water first help the wrappers come off more easily! I broke a few nails and have crayon wax embedded under my fingernails still from peeling the paper last night.

I still am in need of a lot more crayons for this project. If you have any old/broken crayons I can use, I'll trade ya two cute robot crayons for your stash! I want to make as many of these as I can for Morgan's VEX Robotic Championship in April to give away as "flair."  



I baked at 300 Degrees in a Convection Oven for about 15 minutes. Let cool for about 45 minutes to an hour (depending on how full you fill the molds) to try to push them out.

The cool 12 Cups Silicone Robot Baking Mold can be found on Amazon here



If you are interested in donating to help fund my 11 year old son's team in going to the Middle School VEX Robotics World's Championship in Kentucky, you can click here. This is a wonderful STEM related program that I encourage you to learn more about. More information can be found at here.

Renee's Online Garage Sale {Facebook Group}

It is time to declutter the house! I admit, it is getting a little hairy in here. We had a garage sale in the late Summer last year and it didn't do so well. We usually have awesome turnouts for garage sales and make quite a good profit.  I vowed to get rid and donate the stuff ASAP and well that didn't happen, most is still in my house in boxes or in the garage. I am trying one last time to see if anyone would be interested in some neglected housewares, books, crafts and clothing at a reasonable price. Prices are listed, but those are negotiable.

If you are local, we can meet up in the St. Cloud, MN area and complete the transaction there. I do ask that you must purchase a minimum of $5 total from me to make it worthwhile to drive to meet up place. If you are not local and wish for me to ship the item to you, I will calculate approximate shipping and handling charges and you may pay with through my paypal account. 

Here is my group and if you are a Facebook user, you may request to be a member of this group to view the items I have for sale. I will be posting boys clothing and more crafts on Tuesday and Wednesday hopefully. 



Any questions you have for me, please comment or you may email me at Nayzee122 at gmail dot com. 

VEX Robotics Middle School Team advances to the World Championship!

First year VEX Robotics Middle School Team S.A.M.E. had just a stellar 2015-2016 robotics season thus far. They did not disappoint for the Minnesota State Competition at the River's Edge Convention Center on January 29-30 either! The team ranked 10th place out of 70 teams after the two days of Qualification Matches. They were chosen as an alliance team and made it to the Semi-Finals. They were up against some really tough High School teams but held their own as much as they could.

We remained hopeful in winning an award for which had included an invite to the Worlds Championship in Kentucky and low and behold Team S.A.M.E. indeed won the Middle School Excellence Award, which qualifies them for VEX Worlds Championship in Louisville in April 2016. 


Team S.A.M.E. is trying to raise funds to help the deter the costs of the competition registration fee, car rental and hotel stay during the 4 day competition. 

Please visit the GoFundMe Team Page for more information. 
On the GoFundMe page are all of the Tournament Stats for the team and their awards earned. There is also the video announcing who the Excellence Award (Middle School Division) recipients are! I love my son Morgan's reaction!

Time to revive this blog!

It's been a long time coming, but I've been meaning to revive this ol' thing! I couldn't remember my login or password and had to reset all of that. I hope I remember how to post! Hopefully I'll update soon and reconnect with my followers. I hope to update you on my family life and any crafts or projects I'm working on. Lots have changed in the few years since I was really active on the blog. I now have a 9th grader and a 5th grader who are involved in many extracurricular activities. I still craft but not as much. Hopefully that will change because of course I still have a stash of unfinished projects to complete.
