Fundraiser Fun

A while back (a long while back actually) hubby asked me to make something for a silent auction-type fundraiser for his squadron. I was smack dab in the middle of my month-long blogabration and already had one desk set I needed to make so he had to wait. But this last weekend I finally made a couple of things for him. This desk set is one and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. This set needed a little more than I usually include in my desk sets, due to the fact that this is a FUND raiser after all.

Included in the set are:
Silver mesh letter tray holder
Pen and pencil cup (includes 3 RSVP pens made to match, 3 highlighters and 2 black mechanical pencils)
memo cube
Acrylic frame stand up 2007 calendar (2008 calendar included to switch out)
Round magnetic tin (holds rubber bands)
Note card box (Alphabetized dividers/index cards included)
Magnets in acrylic box
Not pictured here: Small round tin of paperclips

The magnets determined my color scheme and I wanted the set to appeal to everyone...men and women. So, I didn't include flowers or bling. A few quotes on life gave it some interest. I used a variety of black and white papers, brads, ribbons and punches. The only stamping was on the pencil cup.... the quote from Paper Trey set "Little Lady".

I love making these desk sets and each one is so different from the last.
I have to finish my other project for the fundraiser and get some cellophane to wrap this one up in. I've got lots more to share this week so stay tuned!
