you can help my friends!!

**First, is my friend Jenny :)

This is what she writes:
"To keep my somewhat neurotic self in check, I often jot down my feelings when I'm feeling especially anxious, nervous, or afraid. Looking back at my writings, they're all about love.
Whether it was fear, sadness, or heartache, I tried to piece together and sort out my thoughts to try and get through whatever situation I was in. And now, I want to express it the best way I know how...
And I want you to help me.
Here's how it'll work- if you are interested (and I really hope you are!), please e-mail me at jennystarlor (at) gmail (dot) com. I will mail you an empty page where you can do whatever it is you want with the page. Once you're done, mail it back to me and with your permission, I would love to feature it on my blog."

Love love love it!
Go here to find out more information about Jenny's project and to sign up!

**This is my lovely friend Laura at VioletBella

She writes,
"Okay my lovely readers...
Now is your chance to give back!
I am putting together a community quilt project.
To put together a quilt that is full of handmade love that will be auctioned off and 100% of the proceeds will go to a local cancer organization.
For those of you who are new to my blog, I lost my mother just shy of 2 years ago to breast cancer. She is my biggest inspiration and reason for creating and for being who I am. This is my way of giving a little something back to the people and community that so generously gave her their love and attention through her illness.
So what I am asking of you is a little bit of your time and love put into a piece of fabric that will be woven together by me in hopes to give a little back."
You can go here to see all of the guidelines and any other information :) I can not wait to start mine!!!

**My beautiful friend Amy is calling on the help of every crocheter out there :)

" for each granny square that i receive, i will donate $.50 to the haiti earthquake relief fund. don't worry about the color, thickness, or anything like that. just crochet. and please, please pass this project along. i'm really, really excited to help haiti in any way possible, and i'm really excited to make this quilt.
