Whitesboro, NY shoebox swap 9/11/10

We had a GREAT time at the Whitesboro, NY gathering yesterday (9/11/10). Thanks to Nancy and Meg for being such good hostesses! The first picture I like to call Jesus Loves Me! This life sized statue was in the corner of the room the whole day and for anyone that knows me..... you know he was there to keep an eye on me so I didn't get too crazy, lol. Here is a group shot of the room from mine and Jesus' vantage point. There were 8 tables set up for our shoebox projects. We each had a list of the 30 shoebox projects and rotated around to the different tables until we had completed them all (or as many as we could before we had to pack up so mass could start upstairs)

Another room view. Yep, I appear taller in this pic.... I was standing on a chair :)
Here is a shot of some of the girls at the "after party" in the rubber room. After a little, shopping, we returned to my house to finish each other's shoebox projects, order some dinner, chat and laugh and as my husband put it this morning "just drink lots of water, lol". The girls also pumped out 100, yes 100! cards for the troops as the return home from duty. This is done under a program called Operation Welcome Home.

Here's a shot of some of the pile of the Operation Welcome Home cards. Thanks to Arlene for providing and pre-cutting all the materials.
It was another great day of stamping with friends. Can't wait to do it again!
