OPERATION WRITE HOME: Helping Hero's Keep In Touch With Home

I have been busy making cards for Operation Write Home. If you haven't heard of OWH and you are a card maker, keep reading! Operation Write Home or OWH Mission is "Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them."

The are a non profit  organization dedicated to getting cards into the hands of our men and woman proudly serving our country. You can donate blank cards, write letters to any armed service man/woman, even have your children color pictures to send. Not crafty you say, well they also take donations to help in the cost of shipping.

I will be making cards at my Studio throughout the holidays to send to the troops. If you are interested in helping out, please contact me. Everything is cut out, all you will have to do is stamp and glue!

Continued Support of our troops overseas is important. Consider helping make cards to show you care.

College Door Dec's

My  niece needed some door dec's done for her college dorm rooms. This is what we came up with.. Pretty cute I think. I cut out 20 of each of them for her.. and stamped the image from my new CTMH Stamp set Wild Wonders. I also cut out about 200 letters for her to put each name on the banana. She is going to have fun doing that!! LOL  I look forward to the next door dec design she comes up with!
Your cutting machine can be used for so much, don't let it sit there and collect dust. If you have younger kids, offer to cut out cut things for their teacher! Older kids, the door dec's are a great idea.. what else can you come up with to use your cutting machines for beside cards and scrappin'? Let me know!
