Serving Others, Shop from Home, Gift Cards, January


Last night was my second year to join a service project for Chrysalis.  Chrysalis provides a safe, loving Christian environment for women coming out of incarceration, addiction, and abuse.  My church gathers their wishlist for their children.  These are posted anonymously on our Impact Tree for people to commit to shop and provide those items.  Then we gather for a Christmas party to deliver the gifts, share dinner together, wrap the presents, make gift tags and wish them a Merry Christmas!

We arrived after a day of snowshowers.  It was a quintessential wintery scene for a Christmas party.


Gifts are stacked up and waiting.  Food arriving for dinner.



The team members waiting for the residents to arrive after their work day.



The ladies were so excited to open the bags and start wrapping gifts for the children in their lives.

I prepared elements for making gift tags.  I coordinated, stamped, cut, and punched so it was quick and easy for them to assemble the tags they selected.  They really enjoyed making the tags and it was fun to chat while they learned about tape runners and tying ribbon.

Here is a gift all tagged and read to be given!
My heart is full of admiration for these ladies as they work hard to make a new life with goals and dreams.  I am so grateful to have spent the evening with them.


Today is the last day to shop with Stampin' Up! and have your product order arrive in time for Christmas.  And we have so many great deals on close-out and even several current items are discounted due to excess stock.  So don't miss out shopping your favorite stamping tools and supplies.  Shop HERE.

Did you know that you can buy a gift certificate from me and they can order from out of state?!?  Stampin' Up! is great way to give creativity and the order goes to their door.



You can also purchase a gift subscription to Paper Pumpkin in various time-lengths.  And I will send you a printable gift card to present the subscription.


Mark your calendars NOW to join me in January!
