Shopping ...

I've spent the last several days shopping.  If you know me, you know this is something that I do NOT enjoy doing - unless it is for craft supplies.  Like it or not, that's how I've spent my time.  Shopping for Josephine's Children in Uganda.

I wish I could tell you everything I've purchased but I don't want to spoil it for them as I'm pretty sure they have visited here.  My wish is that we had more money.  We've collected a lot because of your generosity, but there's so much more that these kids need.  Just look at this child's torn shirt!  Tee-shirts - something that I didn't have enough money for.  But I must shake those negative thoughts from my head.  They are going to be receiving so many other wonderful items!!!
In between shopping, sorting, crossing things off my list and finding room for everything until I buy the boxes and start loading them up, I did manage to create a couple of cards and here's one birthday card.

Now it's time to get started on all those Valentine cards ... the heart-shaped boxes are finished and have a comfy spot on the sofa until it's time to get delivered.  Soon.  Real soon.


  1. You are amazing Sue, bless your heart for all your hard work.

  2. You are amazing! So thoughtful and caring regarding Josephine's children!

    I love the photo on the card as well as the whole card!

  3. What a wonderful thing to do. I'm sure the children LOVe this. Great card!

  4. You will receive so much satisfaction from this project. That will make it all worthwhile..

  5. I can't wait to hear how the children loved their goodies!!

  6. Hi Suz! Yes bless your heart for all the wonderful work you are doing in buying and preparing to send off everything to the Josephine children. We have got the easy end of the bargain! And at the same time all the work you are also doing for Vicki's nests. Awesome you!
    Have a wonderful week getting more things ready!

  7. Suz - I know my part is tiny, but I would happily ship ten to 20 assorted sized tee shirts. is there an address link I can find on line?

  8. Hello Sue! I am writing with sincere apologies.. I am Vicki's helper, assigned to this section. I DID visit you yesterday, and left you a comment, but on another swing-by tonight, I do not see my comment. So, not sure what happened there.... Let me say a belated Welcome on behalf of Vicki, and Thank you for participating in this fun event!! Hope you have lots of fun and make many new friends. Again, my apologies for this tardy welcome.
