When I was 14, I started volunteering as a candy striper at our local hospital. I loved the people - fellow volunteers, supervisors, security, housekeeping, medical staff, patients... everybody! - and my duties so much that I stayed there for the rest of junior high and high school, giving over 600 hours of service, and making wonderful memories and life-long friends.

One of these friends is the talent and sweet, sweet heart behind the first auction item I get to share with you! Kimberly, a recent law school grad who loves her two cats about as much as we love Charley, crocheted a beautiful baby blanket for the lucky highest bidder :-) The blanket measures about 24 inches square, and is made of plush baby yarn in variegated white, yellow, green, blue, and pink! It looks deliciously soft and snuggly, and I am going to have to commission one just like it when we have a bundle to wrap in it!
If you'd like to see what else Kimberly is up to, visit her brand-new facebook page! And keep an eye out for another sweet crocheted item she is working on for this auction. :-) Thank you so much, Kimberly!! You're wonderful :-)
