Operation Care for Our Troops Project Update:
My many thanks to so many of you for your support of our family's, and Abby's Daisy Troops, Operation Care For Our Troops Project!  Your compassion, and support has been tremendous!  We have extended the mailing date until December 5th to meet a few retailers details, so there is still time to participate if you would like.

How can you participate?
1.  Purchase a bag, or part of a bag.  The bags are $25 each after shipping, monogramming and tax.  You can also donate a desired amount towards the purchase of the bag. (to donate, use the link on the OCFOT webpage)

2.  Create hand made Christmas cards for the project.  The cards may not have glitter on them.  Include a personal message to the troops.  Please do not seal the envelopes.

3.  If you live local, and are a papercrafter, I welcome you to participate in my battery/lip balm exchange! You can exchange a new 8 pack of Duracell or Energizer (size Double A or Triple A) batteries for an Alcohol Ink Marker Set, Ink pad, or compliment of your choice. Bring two sets and you may trade for a Level 2 pack of paper. Each papercrafter may "trade" up to four packs of batteries. For those who would like to exchange Chapstick, it should be Chapstick brand (blue) and comes in two forms: one is just the stick and the second is the same stick in a plastic shell. For hygiene purposes, we need to use the one in the shell. They are about $0.97 at Walmart and are in the pharmacy section as well as at some checkouts. You may "trade" a tube of chapstick for 2 pieces of cardstock. May be repeated as many times as desired.  (see picture on my website).

In much appreciation.  For those who have been assisting with the bags, know that the unit that are receiving the bags have had some difficult times over the past week with a personal lost.  My contact has shared  that these are going to mean quite a lot more than we had ever anticipated. She also said: "You and your family and scrapbookers are pure "gems", "sparkling jewels" in an otherwise uncaring world. You have spent your time, money and efforts on a group of guys that you don't even know and I am so full of joy and overwhelmed by your kindness. Thank you just isn't enough for all you have done. We don't know what these young men are going through in these times."   She also asks that we keep the Unit under prayers during this trying time.  My family thanks each of you for all you have done!  I have no doubt that my scrapbookers are the most amazing "gems" anyway!
