{Shop with a Purpose!}

This weekend I participated in a GIRLS NIGHT OUT at the Bellevue Campus of our church, Champions Centre. It was such a fun time for ladies to come together around a great cause – helping OTHERS in this holiday season. We collected toiletries and pajama sets along with other basic needs that we all, quite frankly take for granted sometimes, and we put packages together for the kids at YouthCare and the women and children being cared for by The Genesis Project.

I also set up a booth with my Stella & Dot Stash, and decided to donate my commission from all sales that night to Champions Foundation.  Champions Foundation does so much for our community, both local and abroad and is very close to my heart. From making & serving meals to homeless youth once a month all the way to owning/operating a “Forever Home” for would be orphans in South Africa, the reach of Champions Foundation is unstoppable. However, everything that they do requires finances (obviously) and that is where you and I come in. The cool things about giving to Champions Foundation there is no overhead and 100% of the profit goes right back into reaching and making a difference in people’s lives. That is what I call Good Soil.

I raised $70.00 Friday night, which is great, but I want to GIVE MORE. So I am going to open this up for the rest of the week, until this Friday December 7th, if you make a purchase through THIS LINK, I will donate my commission to Champions Foundation. My first goal is a $150.00 donation, but if I could even double THAT it would be awesome! There are so many great options for Christmas gifts, and if you order this week, you will still have time to get your gifts by Christmas!

I am going to give you a few examples of my favorites for gifts (from left to right):

Earrings: Serenity Small stone drops in Gold, Signature Clover Chandelier, Rhea Hoops, Vintage Studs SHOP HERE

Stella & Dot is excellent quality, lead & nickel free (great for sensitive skin), always 5.95 for shipping, and they have the Delight guarantee which means if you don’t like it, return it for something you DO LIKE.

So go to this website here and do some Christmas shopping, birthday shopping or just get something for yourself – and know full well that you are doing something GOOD in the mean time! Lets BLASt past my fundraising goal (and get pretty in the meantime!)

Thank you all in advance for your participation! YOU are helping making a difference!

{You are mailing what???….Where?}

Well folks – I had a JAM PACKED but very fun weekend! I participated in my first ever Holiday Bazaar! My Friend Katie put the whole time together and hosted it at her house (which is HUGE!) and I got to meet GREAT new people and have a lot of fun selling stuff that I created – how BOMB is that!** A special thank you to my sister Bekah for hanging out with me and bringing me Jimmy Johns to eat. You are the best.

I also started a project that is to be completed by THIS WEDNESDAY. Yes – THIS WEDNESDAY. It is a crazy long shot of a project that I am doing for a new friend. I am taking an existing PhotoBooth that I made, tearing it apart, SPRAY PAINTING/GLITTERING and putting back together – and SHIPPING it to Virginia for a very special girls camp for underprivileged youth. Here is a sneak peek:**Only one pin wheel was harmed in the tearing apart of this PhotoBooth 😉

I have never shipped anything of this size before, and this project has been a bit of a faith walk for me just to get it done in the amount of time I have and have it turn out the way I want it to and have the client happy – AH! But Alas, The message this weekend at church – “In God we Trust” was a good one for me. Putting my trust in Him this week!

Hope you had a great weekend – It is THANKSGIVING WEEK!!! We have been menu planning with the family for about a week – getting excited to spend some time with family!

{Back on the Horse}

Well friends, I took a week of blogging off. At first it was unintentional but then I decided to just take the break.

So I am back “on the horse” again today (Ha ha) and happy to be back!

So I started selling Stella and Dot jewelry and tonight is my first trunk show at my house! I set it all up last night, and I am very excited!! I will let you know how it goes later this week.

I still need to figure out what my daughter will be for Halloween. What is your favorite costume that your kids have worn? (Maybe I can steal an idea)

Happy Monday!! Enjoy these last few days of October!
