Happy Birthday to My Best Friend!


Many of you who visited me during the Pals Blog Hop asked about what my stamping area looks like in my room where I am currently located.  You can see the picture on my Facebook page.  I’m still trying to get used to develop a normal schedule and I hope it kicks in soon.  I’ve got an important class to finish up and then I’ll have all my extra time to do nothing but Stampin’ Up!  I’ve also began receiving beautiful cards from my stamping’ Pretty Pals.  If you only knew the excitement I feel when the mail arrives and there is a handmade card or handwritten letter.

Although I keep in touch with family on a daily basis, I just thought I’d let you know that deployed military members really do LOVE LOVE LOVE hand written notes.  They are more personal and a written word on paper takes thought, love and care to put together.  We can feel the love that was put into it and as we tear the letter apart we can really feel the love come out of it and it makes us happier than an email.

So if you’re reading this and you have a loved one deployed send them a letter or make them a card, go ahead make their day! =)  Don’t worry about how it turns out.  It is a treasure in their hands and the words will bring them a little bit of “home” in a far away place.

Today is my best friends birthday.  I hope by now he has received it and really loves it.
Happy Birthday Michael!

Until the next post…
