Another wonderful cause Operation Christmas Child!

Operation Christmas Child!

I think you may have guessed by my posts this week that I have been thinking about various charities.
I love sprinkling Charity work amongst my other woolly escapades.
I have totally given up on the idea that I can make any money out of my creations.
I am hopeless at taking pennies from friends, even if they have asked me for something specific.
Craft Fairs are interesting places I find!
By their very nature they attract "crafty" people who actually like making things themselves so in general it is more a chance for everyone to get new ideas rather than buy other peoples items.
So another Charity I love to support is Operation Christmas Child.
When I taught the "littlies" they loved filling the boxes and we used to send off nearly 100 from school!
Now, I like to help Janet or "Puppet Lady!
She does an amazing job and sets herself the challenge of making 100 puppets every year!

She has recently taken on a supervisory role and welcomes every item that is sent to her!
So, if you fancy popping into either Operation Christmas Child's website or Janet at Musings of The Puppet Lady you may find a little something which will inspire you to join in the fun!
And, you can be sure that amongst all the commercialism that can surround our celebrations your donation will make a child so happy at Christmas.


  1. I love making these little hand puppets but I don't think I could do a fraction of the number Janet makes. I agree with you Linda it's nearly impossible to make money or much money anyway selling the things you make and I find that's the case for most crafts, it has to be a labour of love:)

  2. Thanks for popping in Linda-- I think that is why I love the charity aspect of my Craft work -- It really is a labour of love. And as I have " empty hand syndrome" it is a real cure!!

  3. I love Operation Christmas Child. One way or another, I find some local places and sponsor at least 2 children to give them a Christmas.

    LOVE the puppets. hee :)

  4. Thank you so much for this mention Linda. You have been so generous for Operation Christmas Child and I can't thank you enough. Yes, things are very busy at the moment but it is so inspiring, once all those beautifully packed shoeboxes start to come in. Peoples' generosity overwhelms me every year! I've quite a few schools on my 'list' and will be thinking of you when their boxes come in!

  5. It's genuinely very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, therefore I simply use world wide web for that reason, and get the most up-to-date information.

    going to Phoenix for the Estrella War. Even Halloween parties with the very best Halloween costumes can get dry after everyone's seen the costumes to be seen and passed out the candy to the beggars. Cranberry studios developed this sequel while publisher Anaconda brings it to you in stores.

  10. The only hurdle to accessing this is of course human limitations
    and the fact that the brain does not function solely as a learning tool for the human being.
    Below are listed a few popular pubs where one can chill in Mumbai.

    The decline of the East side blues scene was
    disheartening, but, it also gave rise to the
    need for a fresh start, which came in the form of the next
    blues-only venue, Antone's, founded by the late Clifford Antone, during the summer of 1975.
