There was luck in the air at St Patrick’s Day Chicktime St Louis!
Everyone had fun making decorations to bring the luck o’ the Irish to friends & family~ And we have a brand new baby girl to celebrate at Fontebella!! We get so excited when we get to snuggle another baby. Thank you to our active duty chick (& Peanut’s bff) for the incredible & generous donations to the new mommies. So amazing!!!! Thank you to all that support Chicktime St Louis & Fontebella. 💋💋💋💋💋
See you next month!
We had a great Chicktime St. Louis night last night at Fontebella! Our leader was Beth & she chose super fun things for us to do for Valentine’s Day & brought treats for us to take home. We loved it! She also soothed a brand new baby to sleep so his mama could get her first break in a week. That is HUGE!! We had 2 other new chicks stop by & they were also a huge hit! Thank you Emma & Sam- you were a big hit & Peanut’s new bff’s!!! Thanks Jessica, Penny, Ashton, and Cassie for being super awesome devoted chicks. You rock! And I’m so happy we have our own gang sign now that we figured out how the “C” goes lol.
We had so much fun at our January workshop at Fontebella! First we started off with Big Mama’s BBQ and had we hear some of the best cookies ever! We then made homemade body scrubs and soap scrubs and then decorated our jars and containers. The smells were amazing and our favorite scents created were cherry lemonade and orange dreamsicle. Every ingredient was natural and we decided natural body care was something we were all interested in and will revisit at a later super fun Chicktime St. Louis event.
You should join us!!
Nothing says FALL quite like a good ole Carmel Candy Apple! Pretty sure we broke all kinds of records for the most “extras” on one too!
And if that wasn’t enough…..We decorated cups too! Here is just a small sample of them!
Our November workshop was simply perfect.
If we had you at Candy Apples….join us in December!!
So much awesome happened at our October workshop at Chicktime St. Louis! We had our first event with our new charity partner and had some impressive and amazing young volunteers spend time with us! We enjoyed delicious food, fun crafts, and laughing! We could not have been happier about our flip flop decorating “kick off” with our new friends. Thank you to everyone that made our Chicktime fabulous!
Thank you to all the awesome ladies that helped us celebrate our last event at Call for Help. It’s been a great time serving you for the past year & we will keep in touch!
We will tell you more about our new partner soon, but just look at the fun we had on our last night at Call For Help 😍 🎉🎨🖌️
Thankful for Chicktime and the journey of serving it has allowed us to take!
Come join us as we begin a new chapter next month!
The Kindness Rocks Project was successful at Chicktime St Louis!!
The ladies are always so creative! We created our kindness rocks to share all over town, hiding them in various places & bringing a smile to those who find them.
The little ones even got in on the decorating…. And then one rock made it’s way into the kool-aid. 😁
If you are in the metro east area, look for our rocks & then pass on the warm fuzzies by hiding it for someone else!! A big HUGE 🎊 Thank you!!! 💞 goes out to our amazing volunteer chicks Carla & Teresa for being awesome kid friendly rock decorators, to my friend Kathleen from Co. that sent supplies for our events & Sonnenberg Landscaping who graciously donated rocks. We are on cloud nine at Chicktime St Louis!!
Chicktime St. Louis recently set up an information table at a church vendor event in hopes of sharing about the ministry of Chicktime and obtain new volunteers for the St. Louis chapter.
The event led to meeting new people that are now “Chicks” and we even met a person that worked at another shelter and were able to exchange information. She gave us great ideas for monthly workshops!
It’s exciting to get in the “Vendor” loop as it’s a great way to get Chicktime out there and meet new people.
We had a great time unveiling our new program & we decorated jars to use as piggy banks. The ladies are so creative!
You can see how happy Chicktime St. Louis makes people!
Come find joy with us and be part of Chicktime St. Louis where our volunteer “Chicks” are super amazing & make the world a better place! 💗
We hope everyone had a great day yesterday! This month, we created 2 amazing gifts that are inexpensive but extraordinary that you can give anytime-but especially for mother’s day.
Next, we mixed up some body scrubs using sugar, Epsom salts, oils & essential oil. It leaves your skin silky smooth. We also made some candle designs that the ladies created themselves with markers. It’s a great way to personalize a candle with your own message. The chicks came up with some seriously creative designs!!
We must send a special thank you to Jerri who donated the candles for our project…You rock!!
Because of awesome amazing people who have donated items to our cause, we dropped off some much needed things to a young lady & her 1 year old son last night. She moved from the shelter into her own place, has a full time job & is doing well! Woohoo!
Kathy Stack Mondragon~ your generous donation will be making ladies super happy at our event this evening!! Stephanie Victor~ your table & dresser have a wonderful new home & the new owners could not be happier! Cassondra Christine~ Your basket of goodies/seat & toy box donation was awesome & so appreciated! Ashton Clay~ thanks for supervising the movers lol. Laurie Shannon supplied the son who donated a futon, 2 chairs & furniture moving muscle.
Now that we have created a little storage room, we can accept more stuff!! Message Chicktime St. Louis if you have things you’d like to donate to a great cause. Thank you everyone!!! 😘
A big huge 😘THANK YOU😘 to Teresa Werner Reiniger for volunteering to share her talents with us at Chicktime this month! It was our DIY project night & she gave us guidance & inspiration from her amazing projects. We had so much fun!
We also had the pleasure to meet Tabitha Coburn as she volunteered with us. The kids loved her fabulous bubble blowing skills! Thanks Tabitha! You did a great job!
Thanks to Jamie (& Grin & dinosaurs), Ashton, Cassondra, Tina & Tish for being awesome Chicks (& chicklet) and making the evening so fun! And thanks Melissa for volunteering to stay late with us after working there all day. ❤️
Wow! Another great event with our friends @ Call for Help Inc. Many thanks go out to Hannah for being our guest leader! She was AMAZING! Hannah is a trainer at Edwardsville Fast Fitness Boot Camp & she taught us a few moves we can do to get our bodies moving. Thank you for volunteering with us Hannah. Tish then taught us some belly dancing moves. So fun! Who doesn’t love teeny finger cymbals? Thank you Chick! (We decided everyone needs a jingly scarf in their life.)
We ended the evening sampling Teatopia tea. It was a hit! The Lapsang Souchong was said to taste like a campfire . Thank you Cassondra for donating tasty treats .
Can’t wait til DIY April!
This week love was in the air @ Chicktime St. Louis! We had a spaghetti dinner and then dipped & decorated strawberries. I don’t know how many beautiful treats actually made it out alive but we had fun! Then we started on Chicktime picture boards to hang up at the center. We had pictures developed of our events & some of the ladies made individual picture boards for themselves. The creativity & talents are amazing! We also had 3 new awesome chicks join us & they fit right in! Everyone loved them! Thank you Cassie, Tina & Ashley for coming & cant wait to see you all again!!
Last week we had a super fun time dressing up & taking pictures at Chicktime St. Louis in our DIY photo shoot! We had a skilled photographer there helping us get great pics. Thank you Tish for bringing your friend Deej to spend a few hours with us and show us the ropes! She had awesome advice and we had fewer pictures of thumbs! Great things happen when we share our friends and talents <3

Thank you to everyone who attended Chicktime December! Fun was had by all at the Transitional Living Center!
Stephanie is a dedicated volunteer chick and future public speaker
Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like some sweet & spicy wings! (No sauce was dripped in the making of this photo.)
Cammi’s oreo shake concoction kicked in!
Big Mama’s BBQ has the BEST cakes!
We had a big ball of saran wrap that contained 25 presents & lots of candy. One person starts unrolling while another tries to roll a double. You keep all the goodies that fall out. When a double is rolled, the ball has to be passed. Fun!
We had an awesome Fashion Show & clothing donation event tonight at Call for Help, Inc. with the girls in the Transitional Living Center. We had a super special guest, Lori Rhodes- founder of Chicktime visit our amazing group all the way from Texas! So much fun! Thank you to all of our volunteers and we can’t wait to see you all in December!
Thank you to everyone who attended Chicktime October @ Call For Help! Ms. Mary Ellen was our workshop leader this month and she had fabulous activities planned for us. Her pumpkin painting activity was so much fun and she is so talented with a paint brush! Miss Dee really tapped into her artistic side when she made a teenage mutant ninja turtle pumpkin! Konya made one of the spookiest pumpkins we have ever seen! For snack, we munched on creepy hot dogs… yummy!
Ms. Linda came all the way from Ms. Betty and our Kansas with a car stuffed with donations for the center from our Kansas friends. Thank you all for the items… They were greatly appreciated! Ms. Susan donated our pumpkins for this event and we can’t thank her enough for her kindness! Ms. Ginger and Ms. Linda created an adorable basket of bears made out of hand towels and wash cloths for our give away this month… the little ones loved it! We can’t wait to see you all at Chicktime November!!
Chicktime St. Louis held our first workshop this month at Call for Help, Inc and we would like to thank each one of our “chicks” who came out to play! We had a wonderful afternoon with the kids decorating cupcakes and playing games! everyone got super creative with their cupcake decorating thanks to Mary Ellen’s awesome instructions and they were so yummy!
We then ended the evening with an awesome tour of Call for Help, Inc. It’s amazing how many people this organization helps and we can’t thank them enough for allowing Chicktime St. Louis to serve them! The children really seemed to love us and we are blessed to spend time with them.
We hope you will join us in October as we paint pumpkins and enjoy snacks with the kids!
