Slow Week for My Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 1/23/2016

Here's what I've added to my Operation Christmas Child shoebox stockpile this week via purchases, crafting, donations, etc.  Don't have too much to share this week as it's been a rough week caring for my grandmother who lives with us, so there hasn't been a lot of time to spend on shoeboxes.

I sat aside a few of this pack of cards I got for Christmas to put in a hot air balloon themed box I'm working on and found these dice I'd bought for something but didn't need.  I'll probably print off Yahtzee scores sheets to include with them, and of course they can play any dice game they know with them, or make one up.  The neat thing about both these items is that I have stories to tell about the theme and game and my extended family, so it'll make the notes I include in those boxes more personal and give a better connection to the recipient. 

My mom & sister crocheted 3 Aunt Ida Hats from Joy With Purpose

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $0

Spent from gift cards earned or won online: $0

Added to stockpile:
  • 3 hats
  • 2 cards
  • 10 dice

Just wanted to say "thank you" for your posts--I always read them and appreciate your hints.

Praying that your grandmother feels better soon--I still have such wonderful memories of my own grandmother who was, I am convinced, one of the sweetest souls ever to live on earth.
