|i actually forgot one of the patterns in this collage. so, you get to be surprised!|
oh, and also, i'm giving away two sets of finished headbands. one set is for babies. the other set will fit toddlers up through mommies. they're pretty cute, i think. take a look:
|this is the set for babies... collage was done at picnik.com which is amazing, you should try it.|
|toddler through adult set, also collaged at picnik.com|
the catch? well, she's trying to raise money for a desperately needy orphanage in Ethiopia. like, really desperate. they need lots of money. now. so, for every $2 [yes, two dollars] you donate, you get an entry toward any item in the giveaway. you can put up to ten entries toward any one item. if you donated $20, you could put ten entries toward my patterns or toward my headbands [or toward anything that catches your eye over there. i won't tell you what i'm hoping to win...]
i hope you guys are able to give, and that you win something fun in the process. please ask the Lord to show you where you can sacrifice this week or this month so that you can give $2 or $20 or $200, or any amount in between. just soak in this promise from Isaiah 58:
“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
The LORD will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
don't you want to be a "well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail"? oh, i do. so much. and He tells us how, just above that beautiful phrase: satisfy the needs of the oppressed and spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry. this is just a little way for you to do that. you will be blessed. thanks for considering it.
