Yesterday marked the end of the Local Kitchen Fund for Jennie auction: I’m delighted to say that, together, we raised $585 for the Perillo Girls! As promised, seven lucky winners will receive their choice of custom canning labels, designed by me and based upon the specific needs of each canner’s pantry. The lucky winners are:
- Casey DelliCarpini
- Caroline MacMoran
- Kathleen Clark
- Melissa B
- and, selected by random.org, BisforBread
Congratulations to the winners, and thank you so very much to everyone who participated: whether you donated money, tweeted and Facebooked and talked up the cause, or just sent out a heartfelt prayer. I’m both proud and humbled by what we accomplished together. Please do check out the wrap-up post at Bloggers Without Borders: to date over $63,000 has been raised for the cause, with auctions ongoing and donations still coming in. People – you are awesome. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Winners, if I haven’t contacted you yet, I will do so shortly. You might consider adding the LK email to your contacts: localkitchen AT yahoo DOT com. I think some of my messages are ending up in the spam folder. Thanks again, and I’ll be in touch!
Kaela, my labels are wonderful! You are so talented, I was just thrilled to win and the best part is helping you help a friend! Your sharing your talent to help Jennie was the highest act of kindness…I know Jennie must be very touched by the canners,foood bloggers who have come together to show love and support to a friend. I was glad to be apart of it. I will think of you everytime I put one of those beautiful labels on a jar!! Many thanks…. Wendy (Redsoxgal)
Thanks, Wendy! I’m so happy that you like the labels – and yes, the best part is that we are helping one of our own.
Kaela, I’m wondering if you think you’ll get to my labels by the end of the month. I have a few gifts planned for that time and they would be fabulous with your labels – but like I said, I have a “plan b,” so there’s no worry if not. Best regards…Kathleen
Did you get my email of last night? (I sent it late, about 11:30pm?) If not, please check your spam folder and add my email to your contacts list. Thanks!
I’m so glad you commented: I’ve been trying to reach you. I’ve emailed you several times, and sent a few tweets in case you were out there, but to no avail. Obviously, my emails are not getting through. Can you send me an email directly, and add mine to your contacts list? localkitchen AT yahoo DOT com.
I was wondering if you sell these labels? I love them and would like to have some for xmas gifts this year.
Thanks much for your interest: unfortunately I do not sell the labels. Lots of Etsy shops have cool canning labels howeever and there are many online resources for DIY labels, including my own label tutorial here: https://localkitchenblog.com/2010/10/14/labels-a-tutorial/. Check the bottom of that post for a number of links to labels to buy, make, free printable downloads, etc. Good luck and happy holidays!
