About Turtle

Hello! My name is Sara, but I often go by the nickname, Turtle. It is a longstanding nickname I've had since high school because I walked a lot slower than my best friend, who's nickname is Rabbit! I have been making my own birthday cards for family members and friends for over 3 years now.

I am a 24 year old, stay-at-home mommy to a 2.5 year old boy who totally and completely owns my heart as well as my time, but allows me to catch crafty breaks while he naps or sleeps at night! I am also married to an American soldier, whom I love very much! We have been married since February 2007 and have been stationed in Mannheim, Germany since May 2009.

Some of my favorite things to do are: scrapbook, make cards, take pictures, as well as write letters and short stories and read murder mysteries as well as anything that has to do with Vampires!! I love to make art projects with my son and just be silly with my husband. Family is very important to me and I can't wait to be home to see my momma.

In November 2009, I received a Thanksgiving card from a soldier I was writing to through Soldiers Angels (http://www.soldiersangels.org/) and immediately, I could tell the card was home made. I flipped the card over after reading it and saw that the stamp on the back said it was made by Operation Write Home (http://www.operationwritehome.org/). I hadn't heard of this group until that very moment, so I looked up the organization online and knew I would soon become a part of it! I have been making cards for OWH since February now and love the help and support I get from this group.

As of today (5.29.10), I have sent out 111 cards to this organization and am in the process of getting out another package within the next month or so. If you would like to know more, please just send me a message or become a follower I guess :) take care, Turtle
