Welcome To Helping Hudson ...

LAUNCH DAY is almost here.    August 1st is our official launch.  Not long now!

Welcome to this blog - Helping Hudson …. A Wheely Good Cause.

Who is Hudson and what is the cause? We’d love to tell you all about it.

Who are we?  The Helping Hudson team are a group of Stampin' Up! ® demonstrators. Being a part of Stampin’ Up! is so much more than just cardstock, ribbon, inks and stamps ... friendships and camaraderie develop when groups of like minded women get together.

One of our stamping friends Tina shared the story of her family and of the challenges facing her young son Hudson. You can read about his story in more detail on this page:  Hudson's story

We cheered along as Hudson reached new milestones and were there to be supportive through some of the tough moments.

Through these discussions we came to see that a KidWalk mobility aid would make such a difference to this little boy’s development and help him progress another step on the road towards independence, and together we decided to work on a project to help raise the funds.

Now I know you will nod in agreement when we say, give a few women the task of doing something great ... wow look at what we can achieve!

And so a few busy weeks later and we're almost ready for launch day. Demonstrators from all over have jumped on deck to help out.  (We're overwhelmed with gratitude ladies!) So many people have chipped in to help.

Here’s what we have planned for you here on the Helping Hudson blog during August ....

Drum roll please because you are going to love it .......


We have fabulous tutorial packs for sale from Sunday August 1st and you will want to bookmark the Helping Hudson blog page so you can stop by regularly this month.  Visit this blog during August for heaps of great challenges and lots of opportunities to win prizes. 


We have bundles of tutorials written from some of your favourite demonstrators and from some new faces too - from Australia, New Zealand and around the globe.

We have 6 different packages and each pack contains 10 tutorials that you won’t find anywhere else.

Each pack costs $10 ...    (that’s just $1 per tutorial!)

If you love your papercrafts, you have your next ten project ideas for just $10.
If you are a demonstrator looking for class ideas, you have ten ideas all sorted for $10.
A tutorial package would make a great present for family members, crafty friends and team members.
You can see a little sneak peek of some of our tutorial bundles on the Tutorial Page.  You can purchase from Sunday 1st August.  
Note: We've received all of the fabulous tutorials and the team are working feverishly into the wee hours behind the scenes to pop them into our tutorial templates and give them a final proof read and polish up.  We'll have them ready very soon and thank you for your understanding.

During August we'll be running a bunch of challenges here on the blog, plus there'll be other opportunities to win prizes.  Stay tuned for more details.

Let’s get together to show our support for this lovely little boy. Together we crafty ladies can help him see the world from a different angle. Let’s all pitch in to get Hudson on the move.
