Ronald McDonald House Charities

Crafters -

Yesterday, July 31st, we made cards with some of the residents at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House. Here's a picture of the wonderful ladies who came and shared not only their adhesive and scissors, but their gifts and talents as well.
Standing - Carri Miller and Dawn Stock; Seated - Jennifer McLaughlin, Geneva Collins, and Ronald McDonald :)
This picture was taken at the end of our two-hour card making.Talk about a willingness to serve - Geneva, Carri, and Jennifer were FABULOUS! At one point, Carri was teaching two families how to work on their cards, while at the same time Jennifer was helping one of the dads and showing him how she made a background using only one stamp, while Geneva was from one end of the table to the other! It was so humbling to watch these ladies serving others while sharing their gifts and talents.

There were two mom-dad teams who came downstairs and made cards. Whoever said this was a "female" craft? The men did a wonderful job on their cards - one of them even wanted a ribbon bow so he could attach it to the envelope of the card he made! Cards were made for the residents, the babies, and the nurses who take care of their children. We each have different gifts and talents, but I think we can all agree - those nurses are angels here on earth...

As many of you know, my goal is to schedule something every other month, so I am looking at September. If you would like to be at that next one - or a future one, please let me know. You will be blessed tenfold...
