2 giveaways. one great cause.

we're doing 2 giveaways today. first....

meet my friend stacey. the girl in the picture, not the boy.

we met kind of on the inter web , which would be weird if i was talking like we met on craigslist.  but actually we go to the same church so i knew she wasn't cray-cray. she is great and you will love her.

also she is great at making the most adorbs onsies and whatnots to fund her adoption.

anyway, she's giving away a $20 shop credit today. read more about her right now.



Hello! My name is Stacey and I’m so thrilled Jami is letting me give away some goodies to one of her readers. Because who doesn’t love free stuff, amen?.

I just recently opened up a shop called hope: handmade, which sells appliqued onesies, bibs, burp cloths, and more! And the best part? 100% of the proceeds from this little shop go to help support our adoption! Because, guys, seriously – adoption is EXPENSIVE. But well, well worth it. 

You see, a couple years ago my husband and I decided it was time to grow our little family. After a year and a half and many tears cried, we discovered that it was very unlikely we would ever have kiddos the old fashioned way. My heart was crushed. Pretty soon we realized something, though. God had said no to our plans for growing our family, but He had given us a new desire – to adopt! 
So here we are, neck deep in the domestic infant adoption process! Six months later and after not one, but two failed adoptions, if there’s one thing this adoption process has taught me it is that God is enough, and I must find my hope in Him! We press on through all the disappointment in faith that our baby IS out there, and one day we will see God work out our story in an amazing way.

In the meantime, I opened up shop partly to give myself something to do so I don’t go crazy while we wait! But also because it’s fun, I love it, and I’m happiest when I’m doing something creative. I love making things for babies because it’s a way for me to bless you and your little ones while I look forward to the day when I will use these things for our own baby!

BUY HER STUFF. there. i said it. and those who use the code "TOTESADORBS" get 15% off.  boom goes the dynamite.

ok on to the next giveaway:

heather at mom4Life is rad. 
she was like, i will totes help with stacey's adoption too by giving 10% of the proceeds from what you guys buy at her shop. you'll have to use the code "adoption support" in the customer comments. simple and everyone wins. 

heather is giving away a pack of 3 baby legs leg warmers. your choice of styles! baby shower gifts...done and done. or if you're like, is that all she sells? no, players. there's more.

Mom 4 Life carries a cornucopia of products that are both unique and practical.  Just a few examples are the Hooter Hider nursing covers for those of you who aren't into flashing, WubbaNub plush toy pacifiers, Belly Bandit abdominal compression garments for muffin top situations, LilyPadz silicone nursing pads and real life dinosaurs that will eat your children. what? just kidding on that last part. or am i? 

so if you want to win both the shop credit to hopehandmade or some sweet baby legs, here's how you enter.

1) close your eyes, spin around, stand on one leg, and type your name and your email in the comments section. 

1a section 2) prayerfully consider going to the influence conference. i'll be singing special music there and possibly rapping? ok fine, maybe just speaking. but whatever, come. early bird tickets are sold out. so get your tickets now before they sell out!

2) are you a follower? oh you're not? you're just a stalker? hmmm. stop hiding in the bushes and follow along. show yourself!

alrighty, let's do this.

  8. To me adoption is the closest way to follow the example of Chist that I can think of: "Oh, you need a family, we will give everything we have to allow you to apart of this one." It's exactly like Christ actually.
    It's amazing.

  12. Just so you know, "Totes adorbs" is now in my lexicon and I think about you when it comes out.

    No babies in my radar, so I'll gracefully exit and allow someone else to win these cute things.
