a few exciting things

i have a couple exciting things to tell you about today. i won't keep you long :)

first, the winner of your choice of Leslie's darling fabric-wrapped frames? Kim. yay!

second, did you know about the Happy Day Project that Jeannett has been doing this week? 


well, i'm sorry i didn't tell you about it sooner, but the thing is, it's never too late to join in and spread some love. i'm saying that to myself, too, since i haven't been participating all week. anyway, today she's encouraging us to appreciate our service members. that could be military, police, firemen, etc. anyone who serves our community and country. bake them some cookies, package 'em up, and slap a little free printable on top [that i designed for today's task!] go here for all the details.

lastly, if you have a shop or blog that make money, listen up. a group of us are getting together and donating a portion of our sales toward hurricane Sandy relief. just because the storm has technically passed and it isn't on the news every second, doesn't mean that people aren't still suffering. they are.there is still VERY MUCH a need for supplies, money, volunteers, etc. for some reason, when we're not directly affected, it's so easy to go back to our normal, uninterrupted lives, isn't it?

so, as i mentioned, a bunch of us are going to be donating shop or blog proceeds to the relief efforts. 
if you have a blog or shop and want to help, please visit Handmade With Purpose to find out what you need to do to. basically, it's just a place where the participating shops will be highlighted and promoted.



i'll be donating 25% of my shop proceeds for november and december.
all you have to do? well, shop like usual! think christmas gifts, hostess gifts for all your holiday parties coming up, or just plain sprucing up your own home with some scripture or lovely quotes :)
