The card drive was Saturday evening, and the table set aside for OWH cards was just overflowing with gorgeous cards! Kay even caught JoAnn on film as she added an incredible 3 gift bags full of cards to the growing collection.
The final count for the October Retreat OWH drive was an awesome 718 cards! Amazing! Now someone just had to sort, tuck and count all those cards...but I was up for the challenge. As you can imagine, sorting 718 cards is a pretty big job, so I asked my daughter, Emma, if she wanted to help out. First of all, she loves crafting with her Momma, so she could fully appreciate the hard work and talent that went into each of the cards. But as it turned out, volunteering for the job would also count toward her Community Service hours for school. It was a win-win!

|An exhausted Remy...it's so hard being cute!|
All in all, Emma and I had a pretty good time...laughing, visiting, and enjoying the creativity of all of our generous Retreaters. It turns out doing good FEELS really good, too!
