Good Saturday morning! WOW did you guys come up with some marvelous ideas yesterday for the troops. Items I hadn’t thought of, and definitely some items that we have not had donated. I’m heading out to the store as soon as I finish this post and get some shopping done. Thanks to all who gave me ideas – YOU ROCK! (Editing to add, I got travel games — Sorry, Trouble, Dominos, Nerf Footballs, Cards, Checkers. I loved the idea of handheld games and couldn’t find them at the Dollar General, so I got the next best thing! I knew we already have books, mags and all the necessary food items and toiletries — I wanted something different and fun!)

I’m not going to take the time to babble on and on today, need to get my feet moving! While cruising the forum on Splitcoast this morning I ran across the Inspiration Challenge. This is not a challenge I do on a regular basis, but in my attempt to do more of the challenges I did check in. WOW what an inspiration piece! I was so taken with the rich colors of the tapestried jacket that I had to participate.
