your ticket to cool

I’m super-excited about our newest Cambodia Fundraiser. Washer necklaces!! Gabe’s mom called me with the idea a few days before the Art Fair last weekend, and I knew the girls would love making them. We decided to color them up a bit by painting them (in chunks and polka dots) and adding all colors of ribbon. They were a HUGE hit at the Art Fair with the teen girls especially. They snatched them up like crazy.

And as a couple people suggested, they would make lovely BOOKMARKS if you’re not someone who likes necklaces much (that would be me, the jewelry-less bookworm). So, necklace, bookmark, wall decor, whatever.

Aren’t they awesome?! You know you want some. You will be SO COOL.

Here’s the deal:

1. The necklaces are $2.50 each (or 5 for $10). That includes shipping to a U.S. address.

2. You can custom order any color combo of paint/ribbon/polka dots, etc. (I also have hemp cord and black leather in lieu of ribbon.) Or you can just say, “I’ll take whatever you want to give me.”

3. There are 2 sizes to choose from: 1 inch in diameter and 1.25 inches in diameter.

4. I also have some necklaces that sweet Nina painted. How do I put this gently? Let’s just say that she’s worried no one will buy them because she’s “not a very good painter.” If you feel so led, please add a “Nina Necklace” to your order at the bargain price of $1.00.

5. You can also order unpainted necklaces or ones w/Cambodia written on them w/black Sharpie as a reminder to pray for Cambodia.

6. E-mail me your order (or questions) here. (We’ll be selling these indefinitely, so no rush.)

In other news:

I have about 50 Diapers books left to sell. (see this post) E-mail me if you’d like some.

I also found 3 boxes of Blushing Bride in a cupboard in the garage this weekend. So, I have 200 of those to sell as well. Same deal as the Diapers books. I’m getting rid of them once and for all, so this is your last chance to buy cheap in bulk. May flowers bring June weddings!

Here are the prices for those:

1 copy = $5.00

2 copies = $8.00

3 copies = $10.00

5 copies = $15.00

10 copies = $25.00

E-mail me with your order. I’d be happy to sign the books for you/your friends if you’d like! Again, all proceeds to the Cambodia Fund.

Speaking of, I looooove watching that thing rise. Sweet little Nina raked in $17.30 in coins at the Easter Egg Hunt today with Gabe’s family and insisted on putting every penny of it in the Cambodia Fund. Her sisters tried to discourage her to no avail. Ava caved and donated $4 of hers. We’ll see how the Spirit leads Livi in the days to come. 😉

Thanks in advance for supporting us, friends! Happy Monday!
