Hey everyone! I know I need to get back on here to do a real update soon, but I wanted to get on quick to share a really neat event that's going on in the northeast Florida/Jacksonville area for anyone who follows me and is from here or is around the area!
My great friend Shirley (follow her on Facebook!) (or her blog!)planned an event called "Community Card Making Event for Our Soldiers" that'll be this Friday, October 21 all day long!! Here is the info from her Facebook event page:
Friday, October 21 · 10:00am - 11:00pm
6225-2 Lake Gray Blvd
Operation Write Home supports our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
PLEASE SHARE AND INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!!!!!!
I ask you RSVP by calling me at home: 904-771-9744. Please call by Tuesday Oct 18 so the snack boxes can be ordered and the space set up.
Bring what you would like to work on, crop space is available for $15 or Drop off what you've made. Don't forget your extension cords!!
Drop off at Journey Church on the day of the event or contact Shirley Wright to make arrangements.
Cards will NOT be accepted after the event date. There are strict shipping guidelines to make sure our Heroes get the cards on time.
Cards must be handmade, cannot have glitter, and be 4.25 x 5.5. No store bought or hand written sentiments.

IF IN DOUBT PLEASE ASK. I would hate for you to spend time making cards and they can't be sent.
Letters written to heroes are also accepted at the same location!
The small fee charged at the door is to cover the costs of the church resources we consume and shipping involved for sending the cards to the distributor. All proceeds will be donated directly back to the church.
The fee includes a Subway Sandwich, cookie and chips. Beverages are available onsite.
I think this is an AWESOME event and while I know that I cannot attend personally, I will be working on some cards to at least drop off on Friday!
If you are in the area, please try to go to this! And if you're not, but you know you have followers in the NE Florida area, please share this on your blogs or your FB pages! It's a great event for a great cause being organized by a great person, so why not!!! :-)
