Upcoming Goodness

My daughter is going to Africa this summer to work with an orphanage. She'll be caring for children among other things and working alongside others who return each year.

In honor of her trip, I'm throwing a Blog Party on Monday, March 12! I'll be giving away an ORIGINAL painting along with prizes, games, and fun DIY's from 8:00 a.m. till 8:00 p.m. There'll be a coupon for 30% off all orders that day in my Etsy shop--ALL proceeds will go to my daughter's trip.

I'm furiously working on new paintings and fun surprises to have ready for the party. EEeee--I'm so excited! I'll be sharing sneak peeks over the weekend. Hope you can make it to the party!


  1. How proud you must be! Your lovely daughter looks like you!


  2. Wow! I love that your daughter is doing this. I love that you are supporting her. I can't wait for the party.

  3. Woo hoo and hooray for the party! I'll definitely be stopping by. My cousin did something similar, where she traveled to Africa with an organization to help in a school/orphanage for a month. She loved it and it changed her outlook on things. I think it's an amazing for these kids to grow while at the same time helping others. Kudos to your little girl for getting involved.

  4. You must be so proud of your daughter. It sounds as if she's smart, brave, and compassionate.

    I hope my daughters are like that as they grow

  5. Um, did you say painting? Giving away a painting? I am SO going to try to be there! :-)

  6. Well heeeelllllo girl in a red dress! I was so excited you came to visit me today Catherine. : )

    Your daughter is so pretty and she looks like a sweetie pie. She must be since she's going to Africa to help others. Wow.

    I will try to make your party...I don't know exactly what a blog party is, but I am excited to find out. Saturday is our wedding anniversary so I hope I don't forget.

    Have a great day!!

  9. How fun!! I'll do what I can to send my peeps your way! And I must say, 1. your daughter is lovely, and 2. How exciting, what she is doing! I've regretted so many times that I didn't use my youth and freedom (read; no mortgage or children) to pursue more worldly, do-good type things. Good for her!
