Shoe Box

I took Sara to her TEC weekend in Yankton on Thursday. While at Calvary Baptist Church where they hold the retreat I saw their display for the Operation Shoe Box program. They look like they fill a lot of boxes and I was really impressed with the whole thing. So on the way home I thought about what I could do to donate. I briefly thought about stopping at the dollar store but really don't have the extra I started thinking about what I have in my craft stash. I bought the bear beads when I worked at the zoo (long time ago) to make Emily the Bear bracelets for a fundraiser. Most of the rest I got at auctions or garage sales or someone gave to me. While hauling corn today (ok waiting for it to dump into the auger) I strung beads. Then I rode with Kevin to O'Neill and strung beads. Then I finished the last 5 sitting in my chair. Total bracelets.....42....!!!!!! I used up all the bear beads, the heart beads and the neon beads. I also used up all the elastic cord I had so I guess I'm done now. I will drop off the finished bracelets on Sunday when I pick Sara up. I love donating!!!!
