Soap & Crafts for OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 3/25/2017

We were able to get a couple more of the deals on Dial soap for our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes...we're really stocking up!

My sister found another good stuffed animal at a local thrift store.

My mom sewed 14 of these tote bags for her 2 to 4 year old girl boxes.  Some were drawstring and some had handles.  She packed her boxes as she sewed the bags so there is not a picture of them all.

My mom sewed four of these reversible pencil cases.

Also, this morning I got a Snapchat from my aunt (who packs with us) of  a bag full of adorable stuffed animals!!
