I have been doing some crazy couponing for the past couples months and have managed to stock up hardcore on pasta noodles and spaghetti sauce so I decided that would be a nice cheap meal to make for my friends and then ask for $5-$10 donations for the Race. I also decided to give away some of the earrings I've made. I was hoping to raise $100 at the most. But guess what.....I made over $300. I was amazed. When I went to tally up the money there were a bunch of $20s in my jar and some people who couldn't make it sent me checks in the mail. So, yeah I guess I'm pretty good at fundraising after all. Plus my sister came with two of her friends from Kollege and they sent me an Edible Arrangement. It was awesome. And Beezus5 made a stellar Banana Pudding Pie. Plus people brought handmade items like headbands and mittens for me to giveaway as door prizes.
And since this blog is about Making Stuff, here is a quick recipe for dinner parties that's usually a hit. Buy one of those refrigerated packages of tortellini or ravioli and cook it per the directions. Then mix it with marinara sauce, top it with cheese and bake it until the cheese is melted. People like it and it's easy.
I forgot to take a lot of pics but here are a few.

In conclusion, people are nice. Sometimes I forget that (like when I'm complaining about people chewing too loudly or clipping their nails in meetings).
