Thankful Thursday: December 27, 2012

Welcome to the final “normal” Thankful Thursday post! We’re changing things up a bit in 2013 – and there’s something in it for you as well as for us!

For us: We’ll only be posting one Thankful Thursday report each month. That saves a lot of time by combining the whole list for a month, rather than doing it every week! You’ll still receive your receipts in a timely manner (within a couple days of receipt of your package), so that’ll be your notification that your package was received. The first of these monthly reports will be within the first seven days of February 2013.

For you: When that Thankful Thursday report is posted,  you’ll be able to look at the list by state – and see if there is someone near YOU who might want to get together to craft! Our dear Caro, though she’s departing as a shipper, will be the person making those connections; in early February when the report is live (and once Caro’s settled in her new home!), you’ll be able to make a request to connect with the other person. Note that if you do NOT want to be connected with another person, you’ll only be bcc’d on an email; so your info will be kept private unless you choose to reply to that crafter.

No OWHtv tonight

The show’s on vacation but will be back next week! In the meantime – you can go catch up on past episodes or check out the ICP for inspiration! Have you noticed there’s a badge for the ICP on our blog now? Feel free to rightclick to download that badge for yourself, then upload it to your blog and link it up to the ICP…then you’ll never be at a loss to find it!

Heads up, bloggers!

Last year we started what might become a tradition (two years in a row makes it one, right?)…..and that’s a New Year’s Top Ten! We’ll be posting an InLinkz on Tuesday that you can link your post to – and what will you be posting? Your top ten BEST cards from 2012!!! So spend this weekend digging around your blog and figuring out your favorite ten cards to share, and copy them all into one giant post so we can all come and see!

End of year giving

If you make end-of-year donations and wish to do so for 2012, they must be received by midnight on the 31st. PayPal donations can be made right up til midnight, but be aware that PayPal does take a small fee from your gift, though you receive full tax credit for the complete donation. OWH pays that fee on our end.

Thank you!

And now…big thanks to all our crafters who sent in cards in the past week, as well as our financial donors. You all are so wonderful and keep us so busy with beautiful cards….bless you!

  1. I love the idea of seeing other OWHers in my area and anything that saves you precious time is a good idea. Thanks for the heads up and for everything you all do.

  2. Yay for saving time!!!!! Great idea!

  3. Sounds great. Wonder if there’s anyone near me? 😉
