$50 gift card GIVEAWAY for a good cause!

I decided it's time for my first GIVEAWAY! The lucky winner will receive a $50 gift card to either Target or Starbucks (your choice). And if you have neither of those in your area, just tell me what you prefer. I'm very flexible :) I'm also going to throw in a gently read Beth Moore book - "So Long, Insecurity!" It is great!

Who doesn't love a good apron? Recently I purchased two of the cutest aprons. One for Avery, one for me! The best part? They match. Super adorable. I see many matching outfits in our future ;) I found them at this Etsy site: http://www.etsy.com/shop/happyasalark

This is not your typical Etsy site. Calley, and her husband Danny, have been led to adopt a child from Peru. As you know, this can be very expensive. But Calley is talented and creative and decided to make aprons to raise the money. This speaks to me in so many ways. She is not just hearing from God, but she is working hard to do His will. They know it will not be easy, but they realize sometimes God's will involves things outside of your comfort zone. Please pray about this and take a look at her adorable Etsy store. Calley is the kind of person that you glance at and immediately know something is different. She is so covered in His holy spirit, she literally shines. I don't know any other way to explain it. Danny is the pastor in the church I grew up in and he has a fire for God that I crave. They are two of the best people I know. Please pray for them as they go on this journey.

The contest starts right now and ends on August 31st. Here's how to win!

  • Purchase an apron (or 2...or 3...or 4!) These make great Christmas and birthday gifts for all ages. 5 entries per apron.
  • Share Calley's etsy site on Facebook or Twitter for 1 entry: http://www.etsy.com/shop/happyasalark  
  • Blog about this giveaway for 2 entries.
  • Remember to leave a comment letting me know what all you've done (no need to leave separate comments, I will enter your name on a spreadsheet for the number of entries you should have and use random.com to choose the number of the winner on 9/1).

Avery LOVES her new apron and asks to put it on every morning! She also wants me to put mine on. So sweet :)

Another design I love...

Do you think a new apron would inspire me to cook? haha Maybe I should just get one for DD and teach her how. She could be the world's youngest chef. LOL :) Lana

You "love" spreadsheets? Too is TOO funny~ loved it when you and Mal played school and office. :)
This post is so sweet. And everything you said about Danny and Calley is soooo true~ she's going to appreciate you for doing this.

Penny said...

Okay~ that was supposed to say YOU are too funny! Oops. ;)

I did blog about your post, but have not bought an apron yet. I'm going to get Debbie and Steph to look at them for their girls first. Anyway, just letting you know I linked you. If I remember to facebook it, you'll see it later. Got to go get ready to take Steph's boys to see Toy Story 3-D. :)
