CB Cement Event

Crafty Beavers Chicago-Crafting for a cause. 

Women meeting monthly to socialize, make art & crafts while donating goods, our time, and money to charities in need.


Last week the beautiful women of Crafty Beavers played with cement. From votives and desk organizers to book ends and jewelry dishes, they got messy as well as creative.

Here are some great cement & concrete craft ideas with links to tutorials if you want to try your hand at concrete or cement crafts at home:

Monetary Donation:

We are proud to support Spirit of America. The money will be used towards purchasing warning sirens for towns in Syria, to give civilians time to find cover from bombings. “In Syria, the Assad regime is using airstrikes to devastating effect, bombing its citizens indiscriminately to force them into submission. ”

Siren

Because they do not have electricity they best solution is simple hand-cranked sirens.

 

Item Donation:

This month we collected blankets, towels, and newspapers for the CACC (Chicago Animal Care & Control). Check out the lot donated by the friends and family of the Beavers.

Remember that as you are doing your spring cleaning the CACC is always looking for these items as well as toys, treats, and clean litter boxes & scoops. Check out their wish list for more.

 

 

 

See you next month and stay crafty!
