I’ve been entrusted to carry out a top secret mission. I’m like Agent 99. I’m armed with a shoe phone and craft supplies. My mission is to make some very special boys and girls know the world is their friend. Actually, I’m more like Agent 40… if one were to count my secret counterparts.
Boy goodies. Irony that I would be sexist. As kid I had dozens of Hot Wheels - and one crappy poser Barbie.
Girl goodies. I’m enjoying my girlyside now at 40mumblemumble - I got a dolly for me too.
A stylist I am not. Unless Wes Craven or Rob Zombie is hiring. Must learn to edit… like moving the scissors out of an inappropriate position.
Maybe Courtney Love or Amy Winehouse needs a stylist/photog? ‘Cause I can do those sidewalk shots.
All packed up and ready to go…
where they end up… nobody knows. For now.
Idaho? Iowa? Indiana? Is it worth trying to bribe me of info??? YES, it is. I’ll have instructions to make the bags when I get to spill the beans (when “Max” gives the ok). Happy Labor Day!

I’m so passionate about Iraqi Bundles of Love. My first bundle is already in Iraq, and all I want to do is send more, more, more. There are no words to express my joy when I saw the photos of my bundle in Iraq. IN IRAQ! Thanks to Art La Flamme (aka IBOL Guy), and with the help of his wife Kristin La Flamme… there’s a new Oprah in town.
Because of IBOL - we’ve been given the opportunity to give big. To be ambassadors in global kindness. Little grass roots grow into big beautiful bountiful harvests - and continue to grow and grow. Bundle by bundle. My deepest thanks and gratitude to the La Flamme’s for giving me the privilege of Doing Something and Making A Difference. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! And thank you to all the good people who serve our country… and also to those who are servin’ up the Bundles of Love in Iraq.
And because my creek-bed of curiosity never runs dry, I’d love to know via comments what you’ve sent or plan to send or what you think is a good idea to send. I’m thinking my next bundle I’m going to name. It seems only fitting that I name it Stephen. Stephen Colbert. And the one after that… I’m calling the next bundle Al Roker. It think we should all name our bundles!
I made myself an IBOL button, and please help yourself to one (or both). SPREAD THE GOOD WORD! Two options, 1) download the button, or 2) snag the code, or 3) print it out and pin it to your clothing. Enjoy!

I first heard about the Mother’s Day Project through Raesha on her post about Carrie. As soon as I read it I was off to sign-up. Being a veteran myself and a wife and a mother to veterans… I feel so honored to be able to participate in something so wonderful. You can read all about the project here as well as sign-up for yourself.
My stitchery tribute is to Juana Navarro Arellano of California, who at the young age of 24 was killed in Iraq on April 8th, 2006. Juana was born in Mexico and at age 13 became a US citizen. I stitched her name in red since the Mexican, US and California flags all have red in them. As I was stitching this tiny teenie small name, I thought to myself that this was the hardest thing I’ve ever stitched. And it seemed so fitting because I’m sure this is the hardest thing Juana’s family has ever gone through. I found it comforting to not only have had a difficult time stitching this, but for actually doing it. For me Juana is not just a press release or a statistical number. I know her name and have learned about her much too short life.
