Last week I spent the first craft money I have spent this year, $6.24 for a used SU set on ebay. The set was only .99, the rest was postage, but he sent it priority mail for $5.20, so he sure didn't make much on it.
I contacted a nearby nursing home last week, and they gave me the names and birthdates for 12 residents. I made and sent each a hello card, and a birthday card to one whose bd is this week. I'm also working on Valentines, have most done, one for each family member and a few friends, but now need to make a few more for the nursing home. I plan to send each one a card every month, as well as one on their bd. Am also making some baby and thank you cards for a challenge. All supplies "purchased" in my stash!
