Can you believe that this is my third time on tv this year? I was having lunch with my SIL at the University and they were asking people how they felt about being able to download porn onto your cell phone.

Then in July I did another tv station for the cards (nobody in Spruce Grove saw it though, because the evening that they aired it all the power was out!) and then last week with another station. This really was the easiest, but I was still nervous.

Hi Carolyn,

We finally got our cards together and I'll be mailing them out to you tomorrow after work ... our total is 176. We had a lot of fun getting together and making our cards. Thanks again for co-ordinating this very worthwhile project.

Thanks so much! I'll let you know when they arrive on this end, then update the card total. I'm so glad others are seeing the value in this project, not just for the soldiers, but for their familes as well. They all make such huge sacrifices, this seems like such a little thing to do, but it's significant to them.

Hope everyone's enjoying having their kids back in school - now if we all could just stay home instead of go to work (but we have to pay for this habit somehow)...

Will any of you have time to make some cards to contribute to this project now? Let me know. We've kind of been at a standstill for about a week.

Thanks!

This weekend is AWESOME. Thank you. I guess when I said "now" I meant "now that the kids are in school". Sorry for the confusion. Please don't put pressure on yourself to do another project. It was more a curious thing and partly to bump the thread up again. I'm so happy with all the cards that I do get.

Hi Carole - I have a box of over 200 cards that is packaged and ready to go. It will be at the Post Office tomorrow and depending on what is the cheapest way to go, should be at you within a week. I also have over 100 card fronts that I did not have time (and ran out of white paper!!) to mount which I also hope to get out within the next month or so.

Default GOOD NEWS!! But now there's a deadline...

I just received the best phonecall ever! The Military Family Resource Center at Edmonton Garrison has agreed to ship the cards to Shilo!!

I'm in the midst of sorting cards into occasions - oh my - what a job. But I get to look at all the beautiful cards again which is so much fun. There is so much talent out there. I'm humbled.

So, now that I know I have a way of shipping them, I'm putting a deadline on the cards. After that, they can be shipped directly to Shilo.

How about Friday, November 16? That will give me a couple of weeks to get them sorted, packed and delivered to the Edmonton base.

Please pass the word around. Thanks!

Just bumping up with a reminder that the deadline is November 16 to come to me. A Card for Home will accept cards later than that, though.

Let me know if you're interested in contributing cards so I can send my address to you, or if you've sent cards and haven't let me know.

Default AND THE TOTAL KEEPS GROWING!

Today a package...no...a box arrived from Stampinreno. She and three of her friends (Mary, Lori and Rhonda) contributed to the project. So..the total now stands at 2,210!

Thank you so much!

I still have momof2stampers to get done - forgot to mention that we actually got to meet yesterday! She came up to Edmonton for other stuff and hand delivered her cards to me. She has the cutest little girl - it was fun spending a couple of hours together at West Edmonton Mall.

I'm still getting responses from the tv interview too, so that's exciting.

Keep 'em coming... and I'll keep countin'

Default another milestone...

Thanks go out to LoisLee for the arrival of her cards today! Plus I got the rest of momof2stampers counted. Can you believe it? Another total....

2,306!!

Thank you....again. This goes beyond my goal by so much! A Card for Home is thrilled with the response from us.

Have a great evening everyone - I'm meeting with friends to do a One Sheet Wonder workshop - I'm not a demo but I'll be teaching it. We'll see how that goes...

Thank you to cookiehead and 4themutts for the cards that arrived yesterday. It has been a VERY crazy couple of days with all the kids' start up activities, but I will post a new total as soon as I get all the cards counted. The number is growing, that's for sure!!

Another package of cards arrived today from tracyo. So...with the 3 ladies contributing to this project, our total now stands at 2,564!!!

This far and exceeds my goal of 500 cards - thank you!

Remember, if you want to contribute cards directly to me for shipping to A Card for Home, my deadline is November 16.

Have a great Friday everyone!

It was a pretty quiet week, and then on Friday I received two packages from tnewhook and babs2g! Our new card total is 2,641!

Thanks to all who have PMed me to let me know if they're still sending cards. I think over the next few weeks the mailbox will be full again.

Thanks, Eleanor, for letting me know. I'll keep an eye out for them.

Also, it was wonderful to meet Joycelyn (Stamps'nCoffee) today in Spruce Grove. She had a box of beautiful cards (my daughter picked her favorites)to give me which now puts our total at 2,739! Thanks, too, for the little treat for me. I'm looking forward to making a cup to warm me up right away.

As tiffanyb would say....doing the happy dance!

I know I mention it often, but I am so appreciative of all the contributions you all make. I'm humbled by your generosity. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

It was great meeting you too! I would love to hit 3,000 too. Yes, definitely keep in touch, and no worries about your kids. They were just being kids - what else can we expect at that age, after sitting in a car for 1.5 hours, with a wide open store and mom busy talking? I think we've all been there. I'm still doing it with my 10 year old at times!! Thanks again for the cute gift bag. How did you know my weakness is chocolate!?!?

Now...for some more news...we have a new card total. Bish's cards arrived in the mail today! So, we are now at 2,756!! We keep creeping closer to that 3,000 mark. YEAH!!
