Fundraiser Friday

I can't believe it's Friday already! Well our 31 Gifts fundraiser ended on the 21st and we were able to raise $85.25! Thank you to everyone who ordered! Thanks also to Angie Mohr for having it for us!

Today I am going to highlight our puzzle fundraiser. So far we have had 50 pieces sponsored. You can sponsor a puzzle piece for only $5. We will write your name on the back of the pieces and when it is completed we will frame it and our daughter(s) will have a neat memento of who helped bring them home!

Fundraiser Friday...31 Gifts ENDING SOON!

Our 31 Gifts fundraiser will end this Sunday! We have had a few orders, so thank you to those people. We are hoping to get $200 in commissionable sales so we will get $50 that goes to our adoption. Right now we are at $56 in commissionable sales, so we have a little ways to go, but I know we can do it! You can see some more pictures at the bottom to see if anything looks like just what you need. To place your order, follow these steps:

1.  Click here.
2.  Click on My Parties
3.  Click on Shop Now across from my name
4.  Shop away! 

In other fundraiser news, we still have a few boxes of cards from our Cards for a Cause. These cards are really cute and you can't buy cards like this for $1.04 in a store. The cost is $31.10 for a box plus shipping if I mail them to you. So far, I haven't had the cost to ship them be more than $5. You get 30 cards per box and the box itself is really cute and can be used for other things once the cards are all sent. 

We are still recycling aluminum cans and every time we take them we usually get about $50, so if you live near us and don't recycle your cans yourself, please let us do it for you. Not only is it better for the environment, but it's better for our adoption fund! ;-) 

Hang Up Room Organizer

The Organizing Utility Tote is one of their best sellers! It's great for organization and has 7 pockets along the outside. This picture shows an OUT as an art bag which is just one of it's many uses. Angie uses one as a mobile office and another to take to her son's games. She can fit everything she needs inside and the pockets around the outside are great for sippy cups and water bottles.

Here is the Timeless Beauty Bag hanging on the back of a seat. This person used the top pocket for the iPad, but of course the possibilities are endless!

Does anyone use IKEA Expedit products for organizing? The new "Your Way Cube" is a perfect fit! One side has a window to see what's inside (as shown) or the other side can be personalized!

Ten years ago, Thirty-One was formed with a goal of helping women by giving them an opportunity to own their own business. Through God's strength, they've built a family of individuals who feel women deserve to treat themselves and those around them to something special. That mission is at the center of everything they do as a company.

This year, as they celebrate their 10th anniversary, they're fondly looking back at an incredible decade full of celebrating, encouraging and rewarding others. At the same time, they're also looking ahead and planning even more amazing things for the next 10 years!

I have created a FB event for this show and Angie has been doing a great job promoting different things. If you would like to be invited to this FB event, leave a message and I'll invite you. 

In January, for every $31 you spend, you can get an item from their New "Your Way" collection for half off! Check out the video below to see what you could get. 

Was one of your resolutions to get more organized? Well 31 Gifts can help you with that! They have so many different storage solutions that I know you could find something that would work for whatever you need. Plus, there are so many cute designs! Check out the website and remember that this show will close on the 20th. Thanks!

Today I Kissed an Angel

Today I kissed an angel. I knew it from the start. The first time my angel smiled at me; I gave away my heart.

Today I kissed an angel; This angel child of mine. Though not of my creation, My child by God's design.

Today I kissed an angel. My heart is dancing wild; Our family, by a miracle; Blessed by our angel child.
