Quilter's Christmas Party for Operation Homefront



http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/2012/12/welcome-to-quilters-christmas-party.html

SewCal Gal is hosting a party today.  I'm linking up.  It's for military families in need, which is a wonderful cause.  We may say we support our troops, but what have you actually DONE?  I can say I've donated to Quilts of Valor, among other little things.  What about you?

If you want to donate to an excellent cause, and get a chance to win some wonderful prizes, please follow the above link to read all the details and donate.  It warms your heart to know that you are doing a little something that adds up to a great deal to those who have been helped. 

My tip for today?  Find your passion, and use that to help others.  Maybe it's quilting, like mine, or maybe something less creative.  It's the thing that gives you joy, and you would be surprised about the joy you feel when someone else benefits from your shared talent or skill.  Sing.  Bake.  Cook.  Whatever it is you love to do, do it once in a while to benefit someone else. 

I'm sewing some pillowcases today, to donate to ConKerr, so someone in a hospital will have a fun, comfy and pretty place to put their heads.  What are you doing?

great advice, I love making things for others... I use to supply my mother with supplies so she could make things for others in need, now that she is gone I follow in her footsteps bring joy all year long by sharing my crafts

ohhh good tip - so many people I know aren't happy - why? cause they haven't found their passion. This goes along with my tip - only do things that makes you happy (in the long run)

So true. I've always thought the joy of a gift is in the giving.

I'm making two quilts for veterans -- I enjoy making things for others.

Merry Christmas!

Today I am procrastinating. Reading too many blogs! But, it's all good because I learn so much and meet such nice people. Happy Holidays!
