That is fantastic that the ladies of Joplin can keep on scrapping and so many of us sent things to help them out.

I was also wondering when the next challenge will be posted. I know you are busy, but I look forward to them.

Thanks Julie for such a nice blog post! It was a busy holiday weekend for sure... worked everyday all day, even late into the night on the 4th! But it was all worth the work because these ladies are for sure going to be hooked up!! I can't wait to give them their huge tubs filled with product and a a big box of paper! Love that so many pulled together to give these ladies the very best supplies! Thank you so much!
