My uncle suffered a stroke just before July 4 this year, to help cover medical bills, his family had a huge yard sale.
They asked for donations, crafts, baked goods, anything.
Our family is very close knit, and when one of us is in trouble, we all come together.
I did my part from 500 miles away and began tie dying.
Everyone loves tie dye, whether they know it or not.
Everyone REALLY loves a baby in tie dye.
And so I began.
I think I dyed close to 80 shirts and onsies. My hands were purple for weeks.
There are more photos somewhere, and yeah, a few of them are pretty ugly, but with 80 something onesies, you're bound to have a stinker or two...
I also spent every car ride making hemp necklaces to send. Since these were for a yard sale, I didn't send a lot of beadwork, due to yard sale mentality of get it cheap! And I feared that people wouldn't want to pay a fair price. $5 for 15-20 minutes a few beads and a length of hemp seemed more in line.
They did very well at the sale and I'm really, really happy I could help.
