We had a few items out today to raise funds for our adopted soldier from Soldier’s Angels. Our best seller was the foam yellow ribbons! One lady bought 5 to put on her fridge, tree, & desk LOL We raised a few dollars, so we’ll be using that to shop for items for our soldier. We’re sending him a box in a few weeks, so hopefully we can raise even more next week!

Yesterday, Ryan, the kids, and I took a trip out to Chinatown. I love that place! I can always find goodies there. And yesterday was no exception. Not only did Ryan buy me a new bamboo (yay!), but he also bought me plenty of Green Food for my 3 bamboos LOL I found new red envelopes both large and small, and lots of ephemera.
Today I went to the Long Beach Depot For Creative Reuse and found lots of goodies again! Fabric angel wall hanging, beads, Garden Fairy rubber stamp, journaling block rubber stamp, bridal wedding wood stickers, cardboard oval stencils, & 2 plastic storage boxes to keep all . I also found TONS of stickers!
Gotta love hole in the wall and creative reuse stores 🙂
Some of these will be up on my etsy store tomorrow!

A few days ago, I posted about how Michael chose supporting the troops and Bears On Patrol. Today I signed our family up for Soldier’s Angels.
Soldiers’ Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families. Founded by the mother of two American soldiers, its hundreds of thousands of Angel volunteers assist veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families unique and effective ways.
We’ve already received our soldier. Tomorrow I plan on going shopping for a few care package items.
This is very exciting. This is another step in the evolution of Mikk’s Kid Krusaders. This is a big deal, and it makes me even more grateful for my amazing family and my amazing little guy with a huge heart.
