Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Happy Holiday Weekend Bloggers!

I am recovering from a very nasty headcold, but I am glad to report I am on the mend. 

I am so excited that I've had this time to play online because I found a new project...like I don't already have enough going on.  ;)  I am currently working on cards to send to a camp for abused children, but I also found a great site: http://operationwritehome.org/.  The folks behind this site gather cards year round and ship them overseas to deployed military units so they have awesome cards to send to their families.  I am so excited to get started on these cards - I plan to ship cards every quarter.  If anyone is interested in doing this, or wants to have a Card Making Party, let me know - I'd love to help set this up or combine shipping with other cardmakers/ crafters in the area.

I am also excited to let you know that attendees of Croptoberfest will have the first chance to purchase Limited Edition Make a Wish Cad Kits.  What?  You don't know what Croptoberfest is?  It is a super fun 3 day crop held at Judy's Happy house and is open to all my favorite CM customers.  I am also unveiling my team's Make a Wish Project at this crop.  We will be making a limited number of card kits so make plans to come and check these out - once they're gone, they're gone.  :) I will be posting more details about the kits soon, so stay tuned for that!

In other news, Dave and I are really enjoying life.  Work has been challenging for me this week - had a short week and then was sick on top of that so I'm hoping next week will be better.  I left myself in good shape Thursday, so I at least had that going for me.  Today I am nearly back to 100% so I'm looking forward to knocking alot of stuff out Tuesday.  I've also been contemplating some changes in my own life.  I love my job - I like helping people better understand their leave options and helping put their mind at ease to get well, but some days the stress is too much.  I often don't feel like I'm really able to use the talents God gave me...several options have surfaced over the past few weeks - no worries - I'm not quitting my job anytime soon...just considering changing some things I do in my off time until I can figure out what I want to be when I grow up....or at least when I get older....I hope I never really grow up.  :)
Stay Crafty and have a great weekend!

  1. So glad you're feeling better Jessi. Hope you find what you are looking for in your life. We all go through this. Heck it took me 41 years to figure out what I wanted to do! LOL Thanks for joining Paper Therapy! I hope you stick around because you'd be a great member to have! :)
