Caring Hearts Feedback

Yesterday, I received an email from Pam Singer, the activities director for the nursing home in New Jersey that received our Caring Hearts cards package.  This is what she said (edited a bit to make it shorter): "Our Residents enjoyed receiving the cards. I did ask our Resident for some feedback.  Many were very impressed!  Others seemed unaware of the artwork, but were more curious about the various places the cards were from.  Some Residents asked if they were required to write back.  I explained to my best abilities that this was an effort coordinated by some card makers to bring cheer and joy during the holidays. I think that the cards are so beautiful, that our Residents will probably save them to enjoy in the future!  Please share with your group that the cards were well received, and that we all appreciate the artistry and love put into making them."

I asked her if there's any picture that she can share with us and just waiting to hear back from her. Thought you'd love to hear the feedback from those that received your cards. :) They do make a difference even if it's only in a small way. I always believe that many times a small act of kindness as simple as making other smiles, can go a long way. And, with so many bad things happen in the world nowadays, I think it's even more important to focus on the good thing, on being kind, and helping spread that kindness.

Sigh... Christmas always makes me wish we could do more to make a difference in the world. It's like as soon as December comes, suddenly there's like magic in the air, where I just wish the world be in a better place, where I can't help but wish everyone can have a nice Christmas. 

Okay, enough sappy-ness (is that how I supposed to spell it??). On to my card for today. I made a super quick card using Peace Be Still set from Papertrey Ink. 

Clean and simple. Love it! I whipped this in 5 minutes and made several more in lest than half hour. Great for when you're short on time. :) I hope you all have a blessed Tuesday and may your December be merry!

PS: Sorry, the font came up funky on my screen and had to try re-posting sevreal times to correct it.
