I just signed up to become involved in the "Operation Write Home" for our service men and women. Making cards and sending them to our troops to write home is such an awesome way to say thank you to them for keeping us safe and "Land of The free" and not to mention how much the loved homes back home love getting a card that is handmade! This past weekend I made 6 cards and am hoping to have at least 100 done before the deadline of February 20th. If you are just making cards to be making them or receiving them from swaps and/or they are collecting dust in a box on your shelf, pull them out and donate them to this worthy cause. Check out the guidelines of what is allowed and isn't as well as allowed embellishments for all in the good of keeping our soldiers safe!

The thank you letters sent back to Sandy on the OWH blog just makes your heart melt as they are sincerely appreciative of receiving them and able to let their loved ones back home know that they are in their thoughts. Here is the OWH link to check out this amazing organization. You'll feel good knowing you are doing something for our "Awesome Soldiers"! There is even coloring pages for your children to color and write to them to include with your cards! So get on board for this wonderful cause you'll be so gratified knowing you are doing something to bring them a ray of sunshine and a smile during their difficult times over there. :)

Cards Made: 30/100

Good for you, Deborah, for participating in this worthwhile cause! The recipients of the your cards that service members choose and send must be astounded. I'm sure they all say "How did you ever find such a georgeous card where you are?" You're bringing happiness to all concerned, that's for sure. Your productivity is amazing! You're the best!...Cheers, Susan
