Bedsheets FundraiserThis month we will have a few new opporutnities. The first one is the bedsheets fundraiser. Yes, we are selling 1500 thread count bedsheet sets. Buy any size (twin, full, queen, king, and california king) for $40 a set. What a steal! These sheets come in 12 different colors as listed below. We will place multiple orders over the next few months depending on the demand for this great deal. Let us know through Facebook, email, text, phone calls, etc if you are interested in buying a set or two.
"A Few of Leslie's Favorite Things" AuctionAlso coming in January, we will hold an auction for a handful of my favorite things from some of my favorite "crafters" who have generously given of their one of a kind items to support our adoption. Look for this auction to take place in mid-January on the blog. Each item will have its own post so those who want to participate can comment with their bid. The items up for grabs range from hand-stamped jewelry from Amy Cornwell, baby bibs and bows from Lux Mundi Shop, handdrawn prints from Mandipidy, and festive door decor from Kissy Fish Designs. You will NOT want to miss out on bidding on all these items as they would be the perfect gift for you or someone special. An official rules post will preceed the items post so hopefully it will answer most of your questions at that time.
Compelled Designs Necklaces Round 2Since the first batch of Compelled Designs necklaces was such a huge hit, I am ordering another batch of 20 necklaces. Stay tuned and the details for the second batch will be the same as the first.
Heather Brown Art DrawingWhen we were in Hawaii, we discovered the beautiful artwork of a local artist named Heather Brown. After visiting a local art gallery in Haleiwa and seeing her work throughout the island, we fell in love with her paintings, so much so that I bought 2 shirts with her work on it. You may wonder why we didn't buy a piece of her framed art, and to that we say, it ain't cheap.

When we were emailing various people and businesses about donating items for the auction, I decided to facebook Heather Brown about our Hawaiian trip and our recent decision to adopt. To our surprise, she responded and graciously mailed us the below picture. It is an framed 11x14 picture called Lahaina Shores and retails for $250. For the record, I am jealous of whoever ends up with this picture. We will sell a limited number of tickets at a low price. These tickets are going to go fast so make sure you snag yours as soon as we make the official announcement.
