Organize your Stuff: Week 27 (round 4): Operation Write Home Blog Hop

This is a quick post today at the request of OWH due to the 125+ blogs we need to visit! (This blog hop goes live at 3 AM Eastern time).

The POW loves Operation Write Home. This organization has touched our family, as it has allowed Fabulous Spouse’s brother to write home… and made our Awesome Auntie smile when she needed it.

Also, our dear Fabulous Spouse is due to deploy to Afghanistan after Christmas this year, and we hope to recieve some mail of our own.

It also justifies some of the Inner Hoarder’s scrappy purchases!

Today is National Card Making Day! In a work up to the holidays, we have been asked to share a holiday card for the troops…
…hope you like it!

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, stamps: Close to My Heart; Markers: Copic; star brad: BoBunny ink: Momento

Thank you to all our soldiers, sailors, and marines for making our sandboxes safe!
