As you know, Megan was a New York Yankees HOPE week honoree in 2011 for her charity work and for helping others "perservere and excel". Since Megan had been doing lemonade stand for years for various charities, the New York Yankees made her a custom wheelchair friendly lemonade stand. Now each year, to continue the tradition, we bring the lemonade stand to the Richmond County Ballpark- home of the Staten Island Yankees- and still give out free lemonade for charity. This year Megan did the lemonade stand for the newly launched Staten Island Yankees Foundation , along with her friends and family. The lemonade stand raised over 4500 dollars last week!
See the stand, with her last minute sign on the side of the stand and the thank you notes she is still making.
The thank you notes incorporate the Cricut Explore, washi tape and Cricut craft foam.

Megan made this card for a special aunt who is under the weather. Let's hope that Tigger will help her bounce back soon! She used the Cricut Explore to make the sign by adding the text. Tigger was made with Print and Cut and the orange was then cut with card stock to layer Tigger. The tree was also Print and Cut and the red door was layered with card stock. We hope our aunt is better soon!

Megan made the favors for the 5th Annual Manresa Columbiettes Charity Tea. Megan is a Columbiette and often can not make the night time meetings, but supports the charity events. She started making these ladybugs for decorations/favors months ago. She used the Create a critter (2) cartridge and made 116 ladybugs with the Cricut Explore. She also made signs for the tea, signs for raffles and of course happily attended it yesterday. Everything was donated and once all is totaled up, the money will go to local charities or those in need. Megan also proclaimed that next year she is making the favors cupcake shaped! (Always thinking ahead and hitting the sales for supplies!)

Megan proudly displays cards she did for the troops!
Not sure how we did this sideways, but you get the idea- here is a one of the cards she did. The others had puppy love and dogs....

Megan is enjoying making Christmas cards with the Explore this year. Considering that she is only 5 weeks post op with the right hand, she really is an amazing kid. She loves making cards with lots of details- and if some pieces are too tiny for her to glue, she has no problem having me assist her with a toothpick and Elmer's glue. Every card is literally filled with love. It is all about the fun.
