a new day

Posted in Uncategorized by heathermama on May 20, 2011

I’m am so completely excited to announce to you…. a new plan… a new thing…

We are happy to be sponsoring a family who is adopting a beauty Addison from ukraine who is moments away from being put into an institution because she can’t speak.

Well. I have loads to say.

As most of you have seen on facebook I’ve been sewing like crazy!

So I had considered an etsy store since like week 3 of sewing. I’m on week 10 and to date have made over 70 outfits/items!

I talked to my sisters lots. Really resisted. Until it hit me…. Or the Lord reminded me. That He had laid on my heart last year…. To be prepared for serving orphans. Somehow. I knew it would be creatively.  He reminded me.

So after loads of research and a hearty blessing from kustomkids (my pattern designer) we  opened Aunt Colors Shop on etsy!

Be sure to like our facebook page to keep in the loop! 🙂

oh and you never know what surprises may hold on our blog! Please stick around here as well!

And if you are touched by this as much as I am! Go ahead and donate to the Allen Family! I’m sure that you will be Blessed!

it’s about time for another don’tcha think?

this one i am so excited about!

these are natural wooden beads nestled in yummy fabrics… hand sewn snug as a bug in a rug…
shabby chic slightly frayed ends stay tied together. simply slip your bracelet on and off… fits like a bangle.

i have a feeling this might be my son’s favorite chew toy! 🙂 and i can wear it as jewelry!!

here’s how this works:

you send me $1 (or give me $1 in person) and i’ll enter your name into the pot 1 time to win this set of 3 bangles pictured above.

send me $5 and i will enter it 5 times. 🙂 easy math – that’s what i’m about.

ALL $$ given goes directly to orphaned no more to aid bringing isabella home!

they are short $3,000 which has to be paid before they can bring miss izzy home! our effort could really go a long way here!!

God bless you as you join us  in blessing others!

i’m so excited to do this giveaway for you and can’t wait to find out who wins!!

** give away ends saturday, january 8th. winner will be announced sunday, january 9th**
