Mailroom Monday: April 30, 2012

It's Monday...and you know what that means! It's time to report on our shippers' outgoing activities for the past week. And it's been a busy one - 12,615 cards....43 boxes full of Father's Day love!
We truly appreciate the support of all who have been keeping up with donations of not only cards but letters and funds. It's been slow in 2012, but we're almost keeping up with the shipping bills each month; thank you for your help in doing so! For those who didn't know - you can send checks in with your cards, or make a donation online through Paypal.

We'll be completing the data input this week and picking winners for the Muscle Challenge that ends today...stay tuned to OWHtv this week for the winners' names!

Thankful Thursday: April 26, 2012

Happy Thursday! Today I thought I'd show you a crazy cardboard sculpture....ha! If our shippers had time they could maybe make something out of all the cardboard that arrives at their houses....we need to keep them busy enough packing cards that there's no time for sculptures though :)
And....though I'm mostly over last week's flu, I apparently had a braincramp while assembling the Tutorial post this week about using scraps....and totally forgot to post the kite tutorial! So----it's there now, feel free to check it out here. Sorry for that oops!

Many thanks to our wonderful donors this past week!

Mailroom Monday: April 9, 2012

Oh my! No wonder our shippers are tuckered after the last week...we mailed 76 packages - that's 21,698 cards!!! At a cost of $943.50 - wowsers! Thank you to all of you who continue to send in donations so we can keep the packages going out! :) :) :)


A few notes about the list below: You'll see a lot of small numbers going out to a lot of our folks; that's because they got flat rate envelopes instead of boxes. Some were because we didn't have enough Mother's Day cards earlier on, so when we had enough left at the end, we sent an extra batch. Others were because we only had Mother's Day cards left, and no thinking of you/thank you/etc cards to go with them, so they just got Mother's Day cards. Envelopes are a very inefficient way to ship - this is why we have our deadlines set as we do, and we beg cardmakers to get their cards in early. The shipping season for a holiday is a few weeks long, and we need them both early - and before our posted deadlines - in order to best serve our heroes!

Thankful Thursday: April 5, 2012

It's Thursday....and we're so grateful as always for your support! Ciara wanted to share this card from Kim with you today...what a good owner Charlie is....he's got an OWHer's heart!

And I wanted to let you know, if you hadn't seen it yet - that last weekend's vlog was an April Fools joke! I truly wasn't expecting that many people to watch the first video on their smart devices and not see part 2; when watching a video with clickable annotations on one of those devices, the annotations don't appear. So....uhm. Yeah. Joke was on me! ha :) If you missed them, here are the links:

And yes, the PS about the brown cards - joke. Glitter factory - joke. Ellen - joke! However....brown cards are always welcome...they're usually unisex or masculine, and we rarely get enough. Glitter doesn't matter anyway since we can't send cards with glitter. And Ellen? Well, you can go send her a note here and tell her she needs a cardmaking class on her show! :)

And now, our list of amazing crafters who sent in cards this week...you all ROCK!
