What is it?? Wednesday



First of all.....I just have to mention that today is 09/09/09...isn't that really cool???? And now, back to business.......50/50 ticket stubs fill up my pretty little canister. For those of you who aren't familiar with what they are.....at all of the local sporting events, as a fundraiser, moms and dads sell tickets to all of the fans during the event. Then a ticket is drawn. The winning number is announced and they split the money. Sometimes it can be quite a hefty amount...especially at the high school football games. Well, these are the tickets they sell at T's football games every weekend. Cubby has loved them since he was really little. He always collected them after the number was drawn....putting them in his pockets, playing with them in his play cash register and having his own 50/50 raffles at our house. I even won once a few years ago!! Last Saturday I asked the mom in charge of the raffle if I could have all of the tickets at the end of the night.....not just for my post here....but I have an idea that's brewing in my crafty little brain on how to re-purpose them on a big project I have up my sleeve. More on that in the coming months.....

ha! I just texted my kids the date!! Fun!
We do the 50/50 at football and other events,too. Then one wise guy gave all of his half back and now everyone feels they have to, also! No worry, I never win!
Intrigued about those tickets!
