Hello to anyone stopping by!
Just want to let you know I am going to get back to blogging...
So, here is a pic of me & my husband on our recent trip to Vegas. This is when we sent on a motorcycle trip to Death Valley National Park. We rented Harleys for 2 days while out there. Gorgeous... and HOT in D.V.!! Amazing beauty though.
Also while there I visited the AMAZING Viva LasVegasStamps store. WOW, is all I can say... got a few cute images, but didn't spend nearly enough time there... :o(
Well, I'll be back soon!

I'm trying to organize a card campaign for Matt Brown, a 16 y/o hockey player from Norwood, MA.
Matt was paralyzed in a freak accident on the ice on January 23, 2010.
After many weeks of rehab at the Shepard Center in Atlanta, GA, Matt is now home and working hard to get well.
Cards and letters can be sent to Matt at the following address:
c/o Ree Donnelly
email me for my address!
Here is a link to Matty's website to learn more about this young man.
I hope to generate as much exposure as possible for Matt. I am asking anyone who sees this to please post a link to my blog post. Thanks!!!

Went to Staples Yesterday and got this Memorex CD File container. It's really nice; it's fabric covered, with a hinged top. This works like a mini file drawer, and the CD sleeves are like mini hanging file-folders! They're actually cute!
I cut a square of magnetic sheeting for each set to stay put within the pocket. It seems to be working great!
ETA: Some have asked where to get magnetic sheets. I've gotten them at both Staples and Michaels. If u can't find them just ask a store clerk, and they'll show you!

Let me know what you think!
