« BUSY... | Main | OH CRUMB! »



A few weeks ago, Mary from Florida found me on the internet. She emailed and asked about having a long-distance STAMPIN' UP! PARTY IN A BOX!

Map W&FIn spite of the distance, we made plans!  She invited her friends and I prepared the box!


When the box arrived on her doorstep, filled with Stampin' Up! supplies, catalogs and surprises, Mary made a set of cards so she would be ready to give step-by-step assistance to her guests. On the day of the party, she was all prepared as a stand-in demonstrator!  Nine mothers and thirteen daughters got busy making cards...

The moms and daughters, part of a faith-based scouting group called American Heritage Girls came up with an idea as they were crafting together... As a service project, they decided to donate the cards to Operation Write Home!

Operation Write Home accepts handmade cards and sends them to USA soldiers in remote places all over the world. Soldiers who don't have access to buy cards are able to send them to loved ones and friends. 

The stampers were able to send multiple cards in these designs...

Mary's party was more than a success. She had over $300 in sales and earned these Hostess Gifts...

But the best part of all was their contribution to our Troops!

To Mary and the Mothers and Daughters... THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING. We appreciate your generosity! It is especially heart-warming to those of us who have had family members in harm's way.
