Yesterday was an especially fun day. We had a storm day so children were home from school early. The girls wanted to come over and create some art together. It happened to also be Alisha’s birthday, so we created presents for her.
Friends, join us as we do something to give back to those on military deployment.
We are hosting a night to create and assemble items to be included in Care Packages for our active duty military women and men on deployment.At Twinkle’s Place we will be mixing up sugar scrubs, making clay talisman, and making greeting cards.
Some will be bringing handmade items like crocheted washcloths and goats milk soap (Thank you Waggin’ Tale Farm). Others plan to contribute books, poems and artistry.
Yes, the theme for the care package is all about pampering these women and men. If you have something you would like to contribute to the care packages, please join us!
If you cannot attend, please feel free to drop something by this week.
