get 'em while they's hot!

My sweet sister Bethany inspires me with her amazing creativity and talent (my sister Steph and sis-in-law Jess are equally brilliant, but I’ll save them for another post). Then she double-inspires me by giving so much to others, especially those in need.

Today, she’s on a mission. To sell these 2 FABULOUS fabric banners and 1 GORGEOUS apron to buy a GOAT for a family in poverty in a third-world country this Christmas.

So, if you buy one of these one-of-a-kind handmade items today, you’re getting something REALLY cool and essentially buying 1/3 of a GOAT. Kinda hard to pass that one up, eh?

EDIT: Check out my cousin Jen’s Elf/Goat Party. AWESOME idea anyone could do!!

So, first come, first served… (just leave a comment telling me you want it)

The sisters playing one of our new favorite games (Sequence). I didn’t win once. We missed you, Steph!

All the cousins (minus little Mia in South Carolina) huddled on Uncle Stew and Aunt Bethy’s bed watching the Grinch.

p.s. My apologies for no blog post yesterday. Only 6 days old, and December is already kicking my tail. Neighborhood Cookie Party details to come!

p.p.s. It’s not too late to sign up for our next Read-Along! We’d love to have you!

    Marla, I want to buy the polka-dot Celebrate banner. Yay! I was debating…should I, shouldn’t I? But realizing that the money spent is not JUST to buy something for myself, but to help a family in need….YES, I should! Thanks Marla and Bethany!

    Yay Bethy!! This is so cool! My family is so melt-my-heart-awesome. (I like this project especially because my Yoder-side cousins are helping out the organization that my Robision-side cousin works for – LOVE IT!)

    Side note: Marla, your hair is super cute that length.

    I LOVE the banners and will be buying one one day, just not right now :(……… Does your sister have an etsy site?

    I looked through all of these pictures at least four times. How can a few pictures make me so happy and so sad at the same time?

    10 days!!!
