where we live

if you have a sec, run over here and check out something i've been up to lately.

my sister, jen, needed a project. you see, in my family, we suffer from "idle-itis" (no, not IDOL-itis! sheesh, seacrest...)

really, we don't know what to do with ourselves if we don't have a project. so, jen needed a project, and she needed/wanted/agreed to having a partner for this project. in a nutshell, we are hoping to take our enthusiasm and our vision for our little neck of the woods, and make it a beautiful reality!

so, where we live (building better communities), was quietly hatched, duly incorporated, and our premiere project is to raise money to build a new & improved playground at muse park. our fundraising efforts for this project will come primarily from corporate sponsorships and an engraved brick campaign. on saturday, we will host a *fishing pond* at community fun day, sporting cool blue shirts and our flashy new banner.

WWL is obviously in it's infancy. we have very grand plans for a hip logo, and 4,000 projects, classes, swap meets, dinner theatres... you name it! i will keep you updated on it all from right here at my desk at amuse-bouche!

feel free to email me your favorite fund-raising ideas. or your favorite *things to do when visiting a small town.*

oh, and if you get the urge to buy a brick and support a beautiful new playground that will turn generations of kiddies into happy, social monkeys, that's cool, too!

That's such a great idea. I love community based initiatives.

Very cool. Golf tournaments are always good fundraisers in my medium-sized town.

Wow it is amazing that you are doing that.
When I visit small towns I like to go to farmers and crafts markets. And eat in small town kind of restaurants.
