Want some of my loot? :)

I love Meg and I love Amy, and somehow God has used both of their blogs to enrich my life and to give me an innate desire to help the Jupin family bring Davis home.

If you are new to my blog, Amy Jupin and her family already have three beautiful children, and now they are trying to bring their fourth one home from Russia through adoption.

Do you wanna help?
...and get a big package from me?  :)

I'm giving away some loot from my shop.
Here's how you can win:

1.  Go over here and donate to Davis' adoption costs.
It can be $1, it can be $10, it can be $100!
After you make your donation, come back here and leave me a comment that you donated.

2.  Blog it, tweet it, facebook it.
Spread the word somehow and then come back here and leave me another comment that you are a hip social networker!  ;)

3.  I'm offering Whatever Readers (you know you're one!)  a 15% discount through October 10th for anything in my shop. ( Please use code WHATEVER15 when checking out.)  If you make a purchase between now and October 10th, leave me another comment!

On Monday, October 10th, I will pick a winner.  Well, the random generator will pick a winner for me.
That person will get all this loot...

This 18 x 18 inch "Fly Free" pillow...

These three 8x 10" prints that are ready to pop in a frame...

This new quilted list maker, made in some yummy Fall colors...

This 5 x 5" print of one of my "She Said" girls...

Three handmade cards and a blessings postcard...

...and last, but not least, the Autumn issue with Matthew Mead and one super duper very large messy flower pin.

Thank you!:)
Now, go read all about Davis and prepare to fall in love :)

This and That

I made this super duper rainbow messy flower a few weeks ago.
I originally thought I would make a bunch of them for my shop...but they are too time consuming!
I do love it though, so it's pinned to my jean jacket right now.

It's actually too hot to wear a jacket right now, but as soon as it cool downs this is my go to jacket!  :)

I'm trying to be more intentional about my eating habits, particularly my sugar intake!
I'm a "would-you-like-some-coffee-with-your-creamandsugar" kind of drinker...
I'm skipping the sugar and just using this "natural"'s okay.

My favorite go-to snack or lunch right now...toasted whole wheat bread with goat cheese and some mandarin oranges.  I would prefer some chips with that, but I'm being good and having a small salad or cut up veggies instead.

Aren't these the cutest?
I bought them from a vendor in MN but I can't find her card!
They are super small and made from polymer clay...Jackson calls them "Googlies" and he usually has the red one in his hand :)

I bought Henry a decal so he knew where to find his
Isn't it cute?
Yes, I definitely need to paint the baseboards.
They were supposed to be touched up after we put the wood floors in...but it's one of those things that is on my loooooooooooooong to-do list.

On my immediate to-do list?
Clean off those counters and get some work done!

Happy Tuesday :)

You is Kind...

Hello dear friends!
I hope you've had a lovely Sunday...:)

Some of you requested that I turn this pillow into a print, so here it is!
It's available in the shop as an 8 x 10, but please let me know if you'd like an 11 x14.  I can list it for you in that size as well!

See you soon!
