Service Boot Camp: Show a Little Love

Letter from Basic: Day 9

Today's service activities:
Fortune Cookies as far as the eye can see!

I've baked 18 dozen so far
and currently have 13 dozen more to make.

Thankfully, a friend of mine is coming over to help
me bake and wrangle the kids.

If you are looking for a fun something to make today,
you might try this pin cushion.

I made this for my Mom,
but you might whip one up and take it to someone
who needs a visit and a little reminder that they are loved.

Here is the tutorial for the Sweetheart Pin Cushion.

Day 9:
Platoon-mates, you are all doing great!
Don't get psyched out or think that you can't make a difference.
Just try to show love any way that you can.
Even being friendly to a stressed and tired
check-out girl can be a sweet service that you can render!


  1. well you've inspired me to invite some would be biographers into my home for some one on one help with their histories. Love your valentine pincushion. Who won the sewing challenge?

  2. this is so cute. And you can always use a pin cushion. Thanks for sharing. BTW I love all your ideas. I've been spending way too much time searching your site. But eventually I will have read it all...

  3. THAT WAS EASY. VT always is in need of that kind of service

  4. That is so cute. Excellent job.
