They are in the mail!

So, we didn’t have lines of folks waiting to get in to make cards for Operation Write Home. After all, we were competing with a perfect weather Saturday and Easter weekend. However a half-dozen people showed up to make cards at Ephemera Paducah on Saturday. That means 35 unsung heroes will receive a surprise in the mail. Are we pleased? You betcha!

Thank you to the artists and crafters who gave up a few hours on a warm spring day to come to Ephemera Paducah to make cards.

 A huge thank you to Kristin Williams at Ephemera Paducah for hosting the event.  Kristin has graciously agreed for Ephemera Paducah to be a drop-off place to collect completed handmade cards. When a box is full, I will send them to OWH. It is important to note, Kristin can only accept the cards that meet the OWH guidelines; so before you gather your beautiful cards and deliver them to Ephemera Paducah, check out the OWH guidelines here.

I have had such a grand time making cards for this event, I plan to continue! I love the 100+ tutorials on the OWH website. My plan is to try one a week to post on this blog. Next week it will be fork ribbon making! Check back to see how this works for me!
