Operation Write Home

One more thing before I go to sleep...

I came across this wonderful organization that collects handmade cards from cardmakers around the country and sends them to troops overseas so the troops can send cards to their loved ones at home. They collect cards for every holiday, birthdays, thank you cards, thinking of you cards, kid's cards, etc.

They also give us the opportunity to send cards to the servicemen and women to thank them for their service, which I understand are received with tremendous gratitude!

I've been working on my first box to send in but, like all my other projects, it's moving a little slower than I'd like! If anyone would like to get together and make some cards for OWH, please leave me a post with some info on how to best contact you. Or, if you would like to make cards on your own and send them all together, we can do that too!

Here's what I have so far.... (there are just a little over 20 cards ready)


  1. You're doing great, Virginia!!

  2. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

  3. I am so glad you found OWH, welcome to the family! These card are really nice and every card makes a difference.

  4. Thank you Ladies!!! The support from OWH is overwhelming! I, too, am so glad I found it!
