Memorial Weekend Blog Hop for Operation Write Home
Hi, everyone out there in cyber land! I have missed you all and it sure has been busy around the Z household.
The good news is that Daddy's surgeries went well and the cancer has been removed. He is on the way to healing and learning to live with diminished lung capacity. Aunt S does not have cancer and is on the mend too. On a sad note, we lost two family members during this time.
Project Pink 2013 is now history and it was a blast! I was blessed to be a part of this year's women's conference at our church and help encourage women to BELIEVE they could create. We made some cute little fridge mini clipboards and flower broach/clips for hair or purses. I was also asked to create some massive stage props! It was short-notice so a lot of fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type creating but think the one came out really cute. I hope to have pics of all these creations up for you to see soon!
After a week recuperating (and getting ill, getting better), it's time to look forward. This weekend is a holiday weekend here in the States. Monday is Memorial Day, when we recognize those men and women who served our country. I recently became involved in Operation Write Home and am so excited to participate in their blog hop this year!
Be sure to visit them by clicking HERE. Take a peek around and see the good they do for our heroes and their families and friends.
CHALLENGE! Even if you are not a card maker, I challenge each reader here to send in an AnyHero card or letter to support them. There are men and women in our military who could use the moral support from home. Even something as simple as we appreciate you and are praying for you will go a long way to those brave heroes. If you are a card maker, maybe throw in a few extras and also consider joining this wonderful organization!
So, be on the lookout tomorrow and this weekend for more information on the blog hop. I'll be challenging myself (and hopefully you), might even have some candy or freebies, and just love to create with you! Be sure to also make the rounds on the hop to visit all the other good blogs out there supporting OWH and see what they are sharing and perhaps giving away!
