Gift baskets ready for Avery's Auction Benefit!

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who donated knit and crochet items to help raise money for baby Avery! The baskets are ready to be delivered. I'm including photos all 8 baskets! After the items meant just for Avery we still had plenty to make several baskets. Avery's middle name is Love. I found these little wooden and paper Love accessories to put in the baskets. I found them at Goodwill. How appropriate! Your generosity and good will has provided some beautiful and heartfelt items that we hope to raise money in the silent auction. I think the smaller baskets are going to do better than one large one since it would be harder to auction a substantial basket like that...unless a store owner were present! Ha! I hope you like how I packaged them. I didn't want to be fussy or put all in plastic so people could touch and feel the quality. The event will be on July 30th at Texas Motor Speedway if anyone is near enough to come. If you would still like to help, please consider donating as little as a dollar on PayPal. The website is
Thank you again everyone, please scroll down to see pictures of the baskets.


  1. You're amazing and so it your team! I would like to wrap you with a "love' tag but Jesus already did!

  2. They all look so pretty! You did a wonderful job making them look enticing for the auction. :) I'm sure they'll do a great job at helping to bring funds.

My name is Kristen. I’m an Interior Designer & knitwear designer as well as a YouTube Tutorial filmmaker & Video Host for crafts, knitting and more. My Loom Knitting tutorials are great for Knitters (or any crafter) who wanna try their hand and want to know how to convert their stitches over to the loom. Many do it to ease their hands/carpel tunnel or work faster. It’s definitely a growing trend for traditional knitters to take up or people who love crafting with yarn! My site is GoodKnitKisses or YOUTUBE. I also write and sell my own loom patterns on my ETSY shop and on  I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
