2011 Updates

January just flew by! We had so much fun at our January Spark a Smile party, as we were joined by SEVEN new faces!! Five of them were sweet ladies who are visiting Casa Grande for the winter. We were so glad to have them share their creative ideas. Our theme this month was Warm Winter Wishes, and we bundled up with hot cocoa and marshmallows. Here are some of our cards (click here to see the rest):

Miss Marlene played around at home and came up with this fun snowman design: 

New card-makers like Sara M. were able to take her design and make it their own!

I love how inspiration moves across the table like a snowstorm 🙂 

My cousin joined us from Tucson and created this simple snowflake card with a silhouette sticker that Marlene had made a few months ago. 

 I’m not sure who made this one, but I love how they took bits and pieces of recycled greeting cards to make something shiny and new!

The little scattered snowflakes are one of the stamps that was donated by Miss Debbie last month 🙂 
And last but not least… I found these hiding in the Finished Card Bin… some of our patients must have created them while waiting for family members to finish having their dental treatment done. Aren’t they encouraging? 


We are so excited to partner with the Home of Hope for February’s Spark a Smile On-The-Road party. We’ll be meeting there at 5 PM, and they’ll even be serving dinner for our Spark a Smile participants! It will be a great night for fellowship and creating, so we hope you’ll join us!
