By adopting a soldier you are committing to sending 1 letter a week and 1-2 care packages a month. Well after I got my first letter sent off quickly, I decided to put my crafty side to work! I sat down one night and made 10 greeting cards. Yep you heard me 10! Now only 7 of them were for my soldier, but hey that's still a pretty good start if you ask me!

For the month of January I am doing a football themed care package. You know with just having the college national championship and playoffs for NFL I thought it would be fun. So I hit up shopping over the weekend and got some stuff together. The hardest part about this entire deal is trying to make it all fit in the boxes. Luckily I made it work and got some snacks, a nerf football, movie, and sports illustrated magazine in the box! Whew, thank goodness!

I hope y'all are having a lovely week!
