Donna Cook is SPECIAL indeed! She has been a member of ZNE since November of 2006. She is a very active member, entering into her second year on The ZNE Design Team, and having participated in just about every ZNE Book Club session that we have had since we started that sub group.
Now Donna has taken on not one but two wonderful volunteer roles, and all of ZNE will benefit from her generosity!
Donna will now take over maintaining posts on The ZNE Design Team blog, so all of our wonderful product reviews, and Design Team project updates will be provided in a timely manner - thanks to Donna!
AND, Donna will be taking over as the ZNE Book Club Session Coordinator - in July. Our Book Club selection for July is Suzanne Simanaitis' Kaleidoscope - and Donna will beging posting the weekly assignments, and the weekly member wrap-ups - at that time.
“Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart, and bids it break.”
We just want to take a moment to acknowledge Brianna Lauren Grant's 18th birthday today. We know that Iva Wilcox and her family are missing their daughter today, beyond any measure we could use words to express. Our hearts are with them all.
ZNE Founding Member Barbe Saint John is offering a sweet discount on items in her website and etsy store, just in time for the holidays - and these purchases will help pay for badly needed dental surgery for one of her kitties. Read on:
"We have many cats, but one feral we took in is really inbred. She is the SWEETEST cat ever, but has a jelly eye, chronic sinus thing, HORRIBLE teeth, chronic ear infections, etc... Last night while attempting to brush her teeth (and I say attempting cause if you have EVER tried to do anything like this with a cat, the cat usually wins LOL), she bit into the towel we had her wrapped up in and broke off her bottom fang. Look at it, it was decay and just broke from that, not from force (thank goodness). But we've decided that we really need to have all of her teeth taken out. We were HOPING we could save some by brushing and what not, but they are all just too far gone..
So-I'm sending out a 20% off coupon to everyone here, and you are welcome to pass it along to help me raise the funds ($1200+ ) to get Puddin's dental work. The coupon code is good on my website in the checkout section , type in THANKYOU (all caps), but I'll also extend it to my etsy shop www.barbesaintjohn.etsy.com as well, just let me know in the comments and I'll refund the difference to you.
Also, this coming Sunday Nov 18th, I'll be down at Feltclub in LA at the LA community College campus. The website is www.feltclub.com, check it out and if you live in LA please stop by! I'll give you the ZNE discount there too!!"
