Operation Write Home Mail Call

I spent several days last week organizing and preparing my first major shipment of cards for Operation Write Home.

I love how the guidelines for creating and shipping are clear and easy to follow. You simply print out a packing slip, fill out, confirm that you've met the requirements by reviewing a checklist, and away they go!

I was (clearly) accumulating an overabundance of cards, and I was thrilled to see them go to some pretty amazing people--our American heroes serving in places where there are no card stores.

I sincerely hope they bring joy to our troops as well as the family members who will receive the cards back with a personal greeting from their loved one. Check out what they have to say about the cards they receive on this blog. It's pretty neat to be involved in this project!

Swinging From the Chandeliers!

Well, maybe not swinging, exactly. But I am stenciling.

I put together quickie video to show how much fun one can have with our gorgeous new chandelier stencil--released TODAY in the Club Scrap JR kit. If you've got five minutes to spare, take a peek!
