A Troop of Winners

How could I resist choosing Elissa and her troop of Girl Scout Cadettes as the lucky recipients of our Craft Hope Giveaway? I was a Brownie and Girl Scout for many years - and remember all of the badges I earned - they were they beginning of my creative expression. Elissa - please send me your name and address and I will send off a copy of Craft Hope, the apron material and an extra bag of scraps for you and your girls to create with. The Girl Scout creed is: "Always leave a place cleaner than you found it." The Girl Scout motto is: "Always be prepared." The Girl Scout slogan is: "Do a good turn daily."
Thoughts we should still try to live by.

THANK YOU, you just made my day in a big way! I am thrilled to be the recipient of a copy of Craft Hope, apron material and a bag of fabric scraps.

My Girl Scout troop meets this Friday and I can't wait to share with them our good fortune. I'm not surprised you were a Brownie and Girl Scout. You continue to fill the world with beauty, generosity and kindness.

Such a great choice! I was a Girl Scout through Seniors. We backpacked in the Sierra Nevada, put on weekends for younger troops at a camp in the Malibu Mts and used our earnings for a camping trip to Canada. I'm still in touch with our leader and those women. Girl Scouts is such a supportive, fun organization for girls.
