Project Thanks

Boy how time has flown by.  I can't believe how long it has been since I've posted anything.  Not really feeling creative and I needed time to concentrate on me and get through some medical treatment.  

For a long time I was kicking around an idea to show thanks for the support of my family and friends.  After a weekend with my sister's this spring I finally got my crafting mojo back and the idea morphed into a combination of using up some of my older craft supplies and making thank you cards to donate to out local cancer center.  

I started about two months ago and packaged cards in sets of two and dropped them off.   I started with 10 packs I think and replenished every few days.  I was pleasantly surprised that people going through treatment needed the thank you cards.  To date I think I've dropped off just over 300 cards.  Most in packs of two but a few mini cards in packs of for.  

The last two dropoffs were 50 packs three weeks apart.  There were two packs left so that seems to be a good amount and I plan to keep that up, 100 cards packaged in sets of two donated every three weeks.

If things go as planned I'll document the process of using up my supplies to make thank you cards for what I'm calling Project Thanks.
