Blogoversary Giveaway!

~~~ CONTEST CLOSED - WINNER ANNOUNCED 5/4/09! ~~~

Here it is, the week of my "Blogoversary"! You can read my very first post HERE. I started this blog to journal about my kids & family. It's been a great way to meet new people, some who are going through similar experiences, some who already have, and some who soon will. I've cried and laughed reading stories from around the world, and close to home. My heart is full. Being a mostly-SAHM this year has really not seemed too secluded when I get to know all of you.

I was moved to help out one new friend in particular. I found a way to do something special...
I made a special pendant just for Cole, a beautiful little boy who has cerebral palsy. You can go to Cole's blog and read all about him HERE. I've gotten to know his mom and we admittedly chat more often lately than I've been able to with my own husband (who is on duty with the national guard). She has really helped me keep my sanity!! When you purchase COLE's pendant from my shop, $4 goes to his Special Care School fund! He & his family need our help to keep him there where SO much good is being done! Any family with a disabled child knows that it can be difficult sometimes to finance all the special care and equiment they need. This is a way we can all help AND get a totally cute pendant too! As a bonus, if you ask me I will, at no extra charge, personalize the pendant with YOUR CHILD's name!

Help Cole and Grab this Button

I also offer a Ducky pendant in honor of sweet angel CAROLINE. $4 for each of her pendants goes to Make-A-Wish!

To really express my thanks to all of you out there, I am offering a giveaway that I think you'll really like. AND, it's just in time for Mother's day! I've started an Etsy shop and my specialty is personalized photo pendants. Here's an example...

I will be offering this pendant TO YOU with YOUR choice of photo AND A CHAIN! The contest ends 11:59 PM CDT on May 1, 2009.

Painter Mommy said...

WOW! Your shop has some really nice pendants. I love the idea of having 3 or 4 tiles on one chain. That is the first time I am seeing that!
