Armed Forces Day 2015




WOW............. the images taken be military photographers deemed the best of 2014 will certainly leave one speechless as well as provoke many thoughts - and definitely leave one grateful for our military men and women. Awesome photographs.

On a side note, it is with happiness I relay that the wonderful Operation Write Home organization I have made and donated nearly 1000 (so far!) cards to will be wrapping up their services August 1st, 2015. While I will miss using my creativity to make cards for our service men and women to write home on, it is wonderful to know that so many are now back home :)  Read about the FINISH STRONG CAMPAIGN here.



"On May 12, 2015, Operation Write Home Executive Director Sandy Allnock, after consultation with the Board of Directors, announced the beginning of the final phase of the work of the organization’s mission.
The primary reason for this decision is one that few organizations are able to announce: an ongoing reduction in beneficiaries! With drawdowns and redeployments, the number of units requesting cards has dropped to a record low, and by the August 1st date, will be so small as to no longer warrant the costs of maintaining a 501(c)(3) organization.
While this may seem sad news to some – it is cause for rejoicing! Service members are able to communicate with family and friends across a dinner table rather than by mail…and that is good news!"



Lastly, there will be a blog hop May 23rd 
at Operation Write Home ! 
Time to put on my thinking cap to
come up with a card or two to share for the hop.
I also must get that box of cards filled that I have been
slowly working on for far too long, get it sent off !!!!!!
I still have lots of cards to share on my blog that were made
to donate to OWH.
