Tuesday Showcase

Welcome to the first post of my new schedule :)  I thought long and hard about who or what to showcase today...  Do I showcase some of my favorite products?  A favorite blog?...  So many to choose from and so I didn't.

I am a MemoryWorks Independent Consultant and they just launched Simple Stories  Can I just say WOW!  You really need to see this paper in person as it is just the best quality I have seen in a long time.  And the way it works with the We R Memory Keepers page protectors - phenomenal.  I know about now you are thinking - of course she'd say that - au contraire.  I do have one small complaint about it - I LOVE the flourish paper that comes in the pack and want to keep it whole to use as the opening page to the album but alas it has some of the elements that need to be cut down on the back.  So I either need to find another opening page so I can use the elements, not use the elements or get a second kit so I can do both.  I'll be ordering a second kit but I do wish all manufacturers would keep in mind that some designs lend themselves to being cut down (like the striped paper in this kit) better than others and place elements that need to be cut to use on the back of paper that lends itself to it.   I'm just saying...

Now on to one of my favorite sites.  I've mentioned Operation Write Home before so this should be no surprise to anyone.  They just do great work!  I mean who doesn't love getting a cute card from someone they love in the mail...  And when I think of all the happy mailboxes around the US due to the dedication of those behind OWH I smile.  When I think of all the talented people making cards to send to our troops I get all warm and fuzzy.  If you think - I don't do cards so I can't help nothing could be further from the truth.  Stop by the site and get is touch with OWH to ask about helping to stuff boxes, stamp the OWH info on the back of cards being send or if a small monetary donation could help offset shipping costs.  Maybe you or your group could sponsor a Unit and cover postage to them for 6 months or a year?  Whatever you do please just know it will result in smiles on the faces of those left behind while our troops do their duty.

Tune in on Thursday to see how I turn 6 scraps of ribbon into a flower...
