How will the drawing be done? Good question. The plan, if possible, is to find someone around here that has not entered the drawing and I will video them entering the numbers into Random. org. I started the numbers at 100 and so far have 118 entries (100-218). Hmmmm, maybe I can get Sara over here. (hint, hint)
Do you EVER get tired of looking at that face?
Okay. Well, I don't!
As always, and until Asher is home, we are accepting donations to help get him home! For now, there is no Paypal option, though it may reappear shortly. Until then, feel free to leave a comment requesting our home address, and I will be happy to send it to you.
Not counting pledges of money that we have not received, we have raised $1620.00 in donations during the month of November! That doesn't count the yard sale profits. I continue to be amazed at the generosity of others!
Don't forget that you are more than welcome to do your Christmas shopping via this link
to Thirty-One and a portion of the profits will be donated to us as well! This fundraiser will not net us a ton of cash, but every single cent helps, and hey, if you get to go shopping for yourself or your Christmas list, all the better, right?
A friend that owns many things put out by Thirty-One has this to say:
Large utility tote: LOVE IT!!!!!! I use it for so many things!!! It works great for me a trip to walmart. I stuff almost everything in it except toilet paper, so when I get home I only have 1 bag... to carry in. It is also great to carry folded clothes or to carry your food dishes. Will hold all that athletic stuff too, shoes, balls etc. If it gets dirty just rinse or wipe it out.
Organizing utility tote: great for carrying snacks & drinks places. Lots of pockets on the outside to stick bottles in & food/ snacks on the inside. Be sure to put you some hand wipes in a pocket too! It is also great as a diaper bag. You could put your about town blanket in there too if you need to go somewhere & sit on something. Load up all your picnic stuff & head out too!! Sometimes I carry all the dance shoes for me & my child in it.
About town blanket: I got my mom one for Christmas. She goes on trips on buses & this is great b/c it rolls up & doesn’t take up much space. Good to keep in the car to cover the little ones up or the cold passenger.
Square utility: I have one of these. It is a good size if you have a baby to put the folded clothes in it to carry to the room. For older kids it will hold all that stuff in the toy room like cars or Barbie & her clothes. It also holds 4 of the little carry all caddys in it.
Little carry all: perfect size for pens, pencils & pads of paper on a desk, cell phone, keys & ipod, hairbows (if you don’t have many). It might fit cd’s. It is good in the car to put hand wipes, sunscreen, sunglasses & phone to have it all... handy without it sliding all around the car. I have mine in the pantry with all the envelope mixes in it.
As you can see, there are many styles of fabric and just about everything can be monogrammed! And, for everyone that orders from this catalog sale, I am entering you for a chance to win a Cookie Bouquet that has been donated by a dear friend in Christ. Check out her etsy store here:
Stephanie makes these amazing cookie bouquets and you will get to pick one out all for yourself....or to send to someone else! Like me. You could totally send it to me!
