Update on OWH and Making Smiles on Faces Award!

I know a lot of you were skeptical about our ability to make 250 cards in one sitting for Operation Write Home and frankly, I thought it was overly ambitious myself. However, I counted up the completed cards this afternoon and they totaled 241! Wow!!! Granted, they’re not completely finished. We still need to add the liners, stamp the back with the OWH logo, and put them in envelopes, but all in all I think we did great!!! The most important thing—everyone had a great time while supporting a worthy cause. Having said that—I’m taking a break tonight! It’s TV for me—no cardmaking to be had—well, maybe not. LOL!

I’m also excited about something else—I’ve received my first blog badge!!! Of course, it came from my sweet online friend, Lynn! Her one year blog anniversary is tomorrow, so be sure to stop by and see her at Trash to Treasure Art!!

Here’s the badge:

smiles_on_faces_blog_awardI’m required to tell you five facts about myself and then pass the award on to five more people. OK—let me think of some things you don’t know about me…

Fact 1:  My favorite ice cream flavor is butter pecan

Fact 2:  I could watch old westerns and classic film noir
             on TV 24/7 (while eating butter pecan ice cream)

Fact 3:  At heart I’m a shy person (don’t even think about 

Fact 4:  I can’t even get a date using online dating services

Fact 5:  My favorite clothes are sweats and a flannel shirt
             (maybe that explains the date thing!)

Now I need to pass this badge on to five more people. I pass it on to:

  1. Angie
  2. Cheryl
  3. Pam
  4. Roni
  5. Sherry

Have a great evening everyone!
