Remembering Our Brave Warriors

Pin It
Operation Write Home

In honor of Memorial Day and all of the brave soldiers who have so unselfishly sacrificed their lives so that Our Great Nation and its citizens can live in freedom, I spent most of the weekend making cards for Operation Write Home.  If you are not familiar with OWH, it is a nationwide charitable organization that helps our military heroes stay in touch with their families.  Homemade cards are crafted and sent to various military units throughout the world.  As of May 13th over one million cards have been shipped overseas!!! 

OWH had put out a special request for additional creative "miss you" cards - cards with no particular holiday theme.  Over the weekend I crafted twelve cards for our heroes, plus a few more birthday cards for the family and another weekly card for my Send Love Today assignment.

Here's a peek at what kept me busy this weekend.
