Can you help?

I am walking in the Texas Alliance for Life walk in our town in June. They promote the sanctity of human life through raising funds for organizations that educate women about the dangers of abortion. Part of the proceeds go to our local Pregnancy Center of which I am involved.

I want to raise as much money as possible for this cause.

Here's how you can help:

For $15 you can purchase one of these lovely dresses in size 2T-4 (they do run small). $10 of your purchase will go to the Texas Alliance for Life as a sponsor for me at the walk. The other $5 I will use to purchase the materials for your custom made dress.

Will you help to educate women about the risks to themselves as well as the truth about the life of their baby?

Please send me an e-mail (my e-mail address can be found under my profile) and I will get back to you as soon as possible about creating your dress.

Toddler Princess Dress GIVEAWAY!

I'm giving this dress away!

It's a pattern from Weekend Sewing. Though I cut out and sewed the pattern in a size 4 it's more likely to fit a size 2T to a small 4T.

The fabric is extra soft and the straps are made from a Disney Princess Ribbon.

So leave a comment with a number in order of when your comment was left and I will draw for this adorable dress on June 1st.

What's that? You want to know where I got that incredibly adorable size 2T girl model? Hmm...I have one or two willing and flexible clients.

Justice Friday

Injustice # 976

Walking the footsteps of Christ with your eyes closed.


Open your eyes!
I assure you not one single day will go by without a need for justice to be done by the body of Christ either for the lost or for the body. Christ did not waste one day of the three years of his ministry we are privilleged to know about. How many years have you wasted?

Not Me!

1. I did not make a scrum-diddly-umptous cheesecake yesterday only to have it ooze apart, after undoing the spring form pan, because it was only 25% baked.

2. I did not salvage said cheesecake by putting uncooked batter in cupcake pans and rebaking did not turn out fine:o)

3. I did not clean up more vomit than I care to admit this week...and manage not to vomit myself.

4. I am not jealous that my brother got my mom a pair of Tom's shoes for mother's day.

5. I did not get the much anticipated book Weekend Sewing for mother's day from my children and husband who "doesn't do mother's day";o)

6. I did not experience wardrobe malfuntions twice this week while attmepting to excersize (for the first time in over a year). I did not finally get smart and wear something a little more reliable this morning;o)

7. I did not fail to mention something important going on in our lives to my pastor only to find out he already found out from someone who reads my Facebook status...

Craft Hope

Here's a great way to put your crafty skills to good use (as if you didn't already use them for good)

"Craft Hope is working with Eren and the ORPHANetwork to provide handmade, soft-bodied dolls for the children. Many of the children come from abusive situations and the dolls will allow the children to develop the mothering and nurturing instincts that most little girls have. Of course, the dolls must be handmade. We will need girl, as well as boy dolls. We ask that the dolls have brown hair and brown eyes, since we would like them to resemble the children they are going to. You may use any pattern you like."

Here are a couple patterns:

Black Apple Doll

Simple Rag doll

Grosgrain Doll tutorial

They need the dolls by June 13th

Thanks so much for helping!

Not Me Monday!

1. I did not promptly scoop up my chickens and send them flying to the lowest bidder this week after find a perfectly harmless really large and scary snake in their coop.

2. I did not just today get around to packing up and sending off the purse giveaway I ended on Monday. (Sorry Amanda it will be there soon!)

3. I do not daily have to clean ants off of my kitchen table because I am not smart enough to wipe the table after every time we eat.

4. I have not secretly wondered if the people in the stores we have visited thought my kids had swine flu as they walked through the store hacking up a lung due to their allergies.

5. I am not considering giving my homeschooled child the week off just because all the other kids get off due to the swine flu "pandemic."

Head to Mckmama's for more
