Oh Happy GIVEAWAY

It is bleak. Midweek.  I get four cavities filled today and my wisdom teeth taken out. Blech.

How about a GIVEAWAY to bring a little cheer? 

Yeah? I thought it was a good idea, too. Especially because I am going to do all I can to avoid going out with a swollen face.

Recently, I stumbled across a garage sale of an amazing family who are waiting to bring home their two children (Sophie-6 months, Isaiah 2 1/2 years old) from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The Detmers are creatively raising funds for their adoption, check out their blog here.

Jody is Miss Creative and has used her skills to make headbands, flower pin/hair accessories and bracelets to fund bringing their children home.

Visit the etsy shop where she sells her items.

A few samples

The Littles have headbands, but these fabric flowers aren’t just for littles!  They would look adorable on adults as well or pinned onto a sweater for a little flair.

Hmm.  What to get that woman who is hard to shop for at Christmas?

Hope the whole dental ordeal isn't too bad. Going to the dentist is not very high on my list of fun things to do.

Sorry, I just reread the instructions. Didn't mean to sound greedy - I thought we were just to tell what we liked not what we thought you should give us if we win. :)

I would choose the Macy headband.
