Operation Showers of Appreciation
Check out this amazing quilt! Isn't it fab? Jessica made it. I just love her sense of style. She is quite the crafty one. And she uses the word 'gnarly' in sentences. What could be better? Jessica made this quilt to be raffled off by Scrapbook Royalty. 100% of the proceeds are going to benefit Operation Showers of Appreciation. Go ahead, click on the link. I'll wait. Anyhow, for those of you that didn't click on the link... is a volunteer based organization that assists active duty and active duty reserve military and their families expecting babies. OSOA honors these families for the many sacrifices they have made in a unique way by providing baby items and hosting large scale baby showers in their honor. I am a military wife myself. My husband is in the Navy Reserves. While I was pregnant with our son my husband was away with the Navy. Fourtunatly, with him being in the Reserves I was still around my family and friends who helped me get through the complications of my pregnancy and take care of me through 4 months of bedrest. I really feel for the military wives that DON'T have family around to help. I know first hand how tough deployments are on families, so this is really dear to my heart.
