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!
