Please read this carefully as this is a different Kind of Swap!!!


I am back again for OPERATION HANDMADE BLESSINGS!!! Those of you that participated last year we had a blast and thank you so much for your gifts and giving. Those men and women in the Nursing Home enjoyed every handmade item you gave. I hope you all got to make it to the site to see all the items you sent in and all the pictures I posted on Operation Handmade Blessings.

For those of you that do not know what I am talking about here is a little background and you can also get the entire mission at the site I provided above.

This is a differnt swap. This swap you will be on the giving end. Over a year ago I came up with operation handmade blessings to use my gift of crafting and scrapping to give back to those who are living in nursing homes and Assisted Living Facilities. I started making handmade that we make for swaps and made them for the women there. Shirt pins, altered boxes for their belongings like jewelry letters and photos, hair clips, cards for birthdays and anniversaries, beaded jewelry and so on. I then realized that this really blessed them because of lot of them had no family and the normal life there were used to was now gone. I decided that If God gave me this gift, I am going to use it to be a blessing so that he can get the glory from it. Then here is were operation handmade blessing came in. I said to myself that I may not be the only one that is interested in doing this so I posted it here on scrabook.com and got a great group of people That wanted to help out and make and send items.

I will have more than one distribution date. There will be one in October 18th so any items themed for October you can have them in by the 10th There will also be one December 22nd So have those items in by December 10th. I am making and collecting things for the months of August September October Novemeber and December. Anything that is put on your heart to give. Here are accepted handmade items:

Crochet hats, socks and scarfs. altered boxes, handmade hair clips, shirt pins, handmade bracelets, greeting cards of all occasions, paperbag albums for those I take picture with for keepsakes for them, handmade pockets to hang on wheelchairs and walkers to put little itmes they like to carry around. bookmarks for books and bibles, I also give them word search puzzles but I usually purchase those since I don't want anyone to send bought items. handmade bows for the Christmas tree. They have a tree in the cafeteria that they decorate, any banners for the tree, fall themed items for the month of October and November, anmd much more... you can be creative and send anything your heart desires. I got such a variety last time that they were just so exicted to receive bags full of handmade goodness. Please visit the site to get more details on operation handmade blessing.

If you would like to participate please post here and I will add your name. you can specify what you would like to give and send. For participationg your name will be added on the blog for a 2012 participant and a blinki for your blog that you are participant in Operation Handmade Blessing. I will also send every person something that participate in this years operation. I will be sending something out in January for the participants. I hope to see everyone who participated last time and also those that wanted to participate that was a little too late, and those that did not know about this last time.

Toccara, this is an absolutely beautiful idea! I'd love to participate. I will send 2 altered keepsake boxes -- one for a woman and one for a man! I'll try to get them to you by the October date, but if not, they'll definitely be there before the December date!!!

What a wonderful thing you are doing!!!

Add me also Toccara. I'll see what I can come up with. When it gets closer to Christmas it would be fun if everyone made some christmas items for their rooms and ornaments for the tree. You could make it a special part of the swap around October. Just a thought. I love the giving part of this swap. So glad you thought of this.

Melody, those are such wonderful ideas.

Toccara, what do the ladies use a lot of that we could alter. Such as hand held mirrors, brushes, or other things they're allowed in their room. That should help give us some ideas to make things they use daily to make prettier.

I work in a nursing home and the little ladies there love trinket boxes to put their treasures in. They also like photo frames for their photos of their family members. I have one little lady who is an avid reader...I made her a lovely bookmark (I am also an avid reader). Some like jewelry and hair barrettes. I saw this little bag for a walker that had a velcro loop to hold it onto the bar and it had pockets like an apron for the ladies to put stuff in...it would also work for males with the right fabric.

Everything Amy said. They do use hair brushes because they spend a lot of time outside so when they come in they love to brush their hair. All the things I put on the front page which would be pretty much what Amy listed here. It's a little harder for men because they are simple but what we did last hear was make them crochet hats. They really enjoyed those. But for women they love anything especially those that still love to wear jewelry and wear makeup, they love the shirt pins, hair clips, trinket boxes, frames and so on. They love items to decorate their side of the rooms also.

AH! I just bought alot of bibs (canvas for adults) from Jo-ann's and I was going to do some ironing ect w/stamping & give them as gag gifts since I found them on clearance .... I bet some of them would really enjoy them!

Count me in, and you dont want us to buy anything? If there would be a financial donation place we could go in together & buy case's of puzzle books, shampoos ects at dollar tree online.

I know all these items would be used or could be used as Bingo prizes -- can ya tell I had to spend some time in a home I fell in '10 and spent almost 6 months in one & I was so miserable. The only thing that made me smile was the ladys n gents face when I passed out handmade valentines day cards (I was in during this holiday & made 1 for everyone in the home) Also they go crazy over hygiene products at bingo!

Now, I know were were not allowed to keep anything glass in our rooms. Because of dementia patients plus there were some mentally undeveloped and could hurt themselves. Plus they loved Movie night (so old dvds?) they loved pop corn & coffees, teas? *Please keep in mind anyone ever buying for a nursing home - keep it sugar free, there are soooo many more diabetic's then not & there snacks are more expensive so the homes cant buy them.

I do make a gift box now to the home I stayed in at Christmas or shortly after when everything's on sale ... so I can get them more. But id love to share with your home as well IF needed!

Im not sure all I'll make. But at least charms, pretty stick pins for there hats or cloths .... yea, what could we do for men? I cant sew I already know that, and knitting would be out for me also!

I could do some manly color picture frames & some cards from a grandpa?? So 'yeap count me in ... not sure for Oct. but Dec for SURE! Promise

Hi Laura! You made me think of something...I work in a nursing home and I know that our state doesn't allow aerosol sprays or any personal hygiene items with alcohol in them. They also can't keep sharp items in their posession. I know that if the nursing home has a rehab program, as most do, they may have some younger residents as well. Just a thought.

Correct, i forgot about the aerosol ect. But yes, sharp items to .. anything you'd not give your 5 year old ... I wouldnt give to an Elderly!

Yes, I was there for re-hab but had to follow there same rules. Because as most homes, there are the "wonder's" I had 1 gentleman that I kind of be-friend-ed you could say. He didnt talk but did sign for some things. Id just say nice things to him & help him during dinner if the nurse's was busy. I had some money coming in, so I bought him & a couple others some treats at times. Well 1 day I came out of the shower - my door was closed thankfully with a gown on because there was Moe .... watching my tv on animal planet not thinking a thing of me!! LOL Id let him & others watch it if the nurse's working didnt mind. Some did, because of the co-ed thing, some didnt. Some because they were a risk on there own kinda like Moe but most knew I was in the nursing field & could get him back home safe with out him being upset n such.

Sorry to be jabbering on this thread. I just really take these things to deep heart since I was touched by living there.

PS. I do remeber now, I had to take some lotian I bought for them back ... it had alchol for the sent? So I got them coco butter, which still smells great but safer!

Fabri tac works really well. I have made pillows and blankets with that stuff and it has been 10 years and it is still together with no tears or comining apart. It is a little pricy but worth it.

Thanks for joining us. I will put you down. Thanks for all your info about when you were in the nursing home. Now you can give back and help some others that are where you have been and show your support. Yes I did say not to buy anything because I do know that some people may be a little uneasy that did not participate last year. The only thing I have bought was puzzle books and yarn for one lady that does crochet. We don't give lotions and foods because of health reasons and will have to have someone let me know who can have what when it comes to foods, lotions, and sprays. They also love puzzles which I need to make sure I put on the list this year. Anyone know if games that we can handmake that 2 people can play maybe? Just some ideas of things that we can make.

Yes the one I support we are not allowed to bring anything like food and hygiene products because of sensitive skin and allergies. For food diabetes and other health conditions. We are strickly forbidden from doing that and taking pictures of those that can't give consent.

What about a tic tac toe game board. You could maybe use velcro or magnets. Maybe use a cookie baking sheet and paint it out and cover it with pretty papers to make the tic tac toe board and use bottle caps with magnets on the back to make the X's and O'x.

Afternoon all. Spent the weekend not feeling well. Just trying to kick this cold. Sounds like everyone has some great plans with this thread. Keep those ideas coming ladies.

Toccara, how does some altered gift bags sound. You could use them to place the gifts into also or maybe the ladies just need some gift bags.

sounds like a great idea to me Deb--
I am going to do door hangers and frames. Maybe a cigar box, too.

I'd love to participate! I can send hair clips and altered picture frames. I will also try to make a banner for the Christmas tree!

JCI! I got 2 Halloween cards and one Christmas card made. Should I leave them blank so they can use them themselves?

Hi Katie.....I will add you. Been school shopping the past three days. Thanks Katie for the frames. You can do whatever you like with the cards. You can leave room for us to put their names inside.
