Saw these on a blog yesterday, and just had to share!!!! Wayyyy to FUNNY!

Yes, these are crocheted shorts, and no I don't think I'm gonna bother making them for my dad. He wouldn't wear them! Thanks so much for sharing Mrs G!!

Ok, now off to teach a crocheting lesson! :) Can't wait!

Craft Sale!

**Repost from Matthew 18:14**

I had a Craft Sale this Saturday morning at our local Farmer's Market to help raise money to bring Logan and Lilly home! It was a beautiful day (compared to the last 3 weeks which were cold, windy, and nasty!!), and I'd say we had a great turn out! What I thought would go quick didn't, but a lot of things went that I didn't think would.

Practice set up in the garage. SOO glad we did this!!

Me and my tent in the morning, shortly before it started.

French Boards!

Sorry, you don't get to see the pic of his family!!! You shoulda come if you wanna know who they are! :) My friend Jaclyn also sent me some bows to sell for Logan, which was VERY generous of her, considering she is trying to fund her own adoption. If you can, please go help her out!!! THANK YOU SOO MUCH JACLYN!!!!

She also sent me tutu headbands, and tutus! Sorry the tutu thing is backwards in this pic.

And it's backwards in this one too! After awhile the sun came out and we took the cover off the tent and left the frame up. Not only for warmth, but for more exposure. And it worked! The sales seemed to pick up and we had more interest after that! Standing by the table is Dottie, who came to sit with me while my mom watched the little ones at my bro's football game. Thanks soo much Dottie!!!!

Happy Customer! :)

This time I FINALLY remembered to take picture of my table after I set it up at on the morning, and before I took it down!

Sorry, you still don't get to see who they are! :)
THANK YOU SOO MUCH to EVERYONE who came out!! And a BIG thank you to my amazing parents!!!! They have both been such as help with tents, my sign, tables, set up, and staying up late to get projects done! Couldn't have done it with out them!

So I'm sure you all want to know total's, eh? Logan is almost $40 closer to being home, and Lilly is almost $80 closer to finding a family!! God is GOOD! Oh soo good! And Logan and Lilly say THANK YOU!!

Prevost Benefit!

This is a repost from my other blog for those of you who read that! :)

Remember this sweet family?
Remember my Bob the Builder days when I made the French Boards with Rachel?

 Well yesterday was their benefit to bring home their sweet boy Caleb! ♥ Rachel and I have been very busy making things for it, and it was a HUGE success!!! There was a Craft and Bake Sale from 10-4, and a Spaghetti Dinner from 5-8. We were there all day (12 hours I think!) and we had a blast helping to bring that boy home!
Our table before we set up! :)
After we set up! :)

Rachel and I
Rebekah and Gary! :D
Lil' Miss Spaghetti face!! ♥
I think we sold more things yesterday than we EVER have at a craft sale!!! We kept track and I think we at Handiwork for Caleb, sold a total of $240!! Praise God!!! Over 1/2 of things, sold and we are going to REALLY busy the next two weeks making things for our next craft sale on Oct 22nd!! :)

But the BEST news is.... the Craft Sale and Dinner combined raised over $6,000!!!! PRAISE JESUS!!!!! God is moving mountains to get this peanut home! And his family is hoping to travel as soon as January!! YAY!

(♥Everything that didn't sell is still listed on Handiwork for Lilly!!! I spent quite some time today marking things as sold! Please go shop!♥)
