Here’s The CORRECT Address to Send Holiday Cards to Soldiers

Friday, November 21st, 2008

The address I gave in yesterday's post, about sending holiday cards to soldiers, turned out to be a hoax.

(Who would do such a thing to our soldiers, and to Americans who want to support and honor them during the holidays?)

Thanks to the readers who commented and e-mailed right away to let me know. You guys are great!

This is a terrific project for kids to help with. They can sign the card, add a special message or draw a picture inside the card. Believe me, no other card you send this holiday season will be more appreciated.

Here’s the ACCURATE information, from the American Red Cross press release, re where letters can be sent:

Holiday Mail For Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

Please be sure to affix adequate postage. Cards must be received no later than December 10. Cards received after this date will be returned to senders. Don't add glitter, additional goodies, etc. per the instructions from the Red Cross.

Thanks — and Happy Holidays! 

Smilebox Makes Scrapooking, Greeting Cards, Invitations Easy and Fun

Image representing Smilebox as depicted in Cru...I recently discovered a cool new way to create scrapbooks, cards and blog posts with music, movement and more. Check out Smilebox.com. Here's a sample of what I made today. (And it took a whopping 10 minutes, including importing the photo and choosing music.) Thought it would be a kick to share it with you and to tell you how easy it is to create these projects.

If you're like me, you have tons of photos sitting on your computer, and you'd like to have an easy way to share them with family and friends. Smilebox works with Mac or PC and it lets you easily import photos and music. Check it out:
