There was a bit of a lull in sales today so we scratched our heads to try to come up with a way to increase them so that baby Joy's surgery will be fully funded. Here is what we came up with...
We are going to offer a limited edition (as in only TWO) special Chinese silk blanket sets. They look red in the photo but they are actually fuschia. The back side of the blanket and pillow are both a light pink flannel. Baby dolls will look quite smashing lying in bed with this covering them up, don't you think? Hee!
So...here is how you can win one of these sets.
- If you have a blog, post about the fundraiser and post the link to our blog. You will get 1 entry.
- If you have a Facebook account, put a link to the blog and a personal sentence or two from you about the fundraiser. You will get 1 entry.
- Send a personal email to 5 people about the fundraiser and you will get 1 entry.
That is a possible total of 3 entries. For those of you who do not have a blog or a Facebook account, you can get 1 entry for every 5 people you send an email to, UP TO 3 entries.
So...it is possible for everyone to have 3 entries. :) We wanted to make it fair.
After you are done posting or emailing, leave a comment on the blog or send me an email telling me how many entries you need to have credit for.
Jillian and Molly will each choose a winner on Saturday night (Sept. 4) at 8PM and we will post the winners names on the blog.
Best wishes and happy typing!!
Here are some pictures I took of the girls today as they labored over their project.
Some of the sets lined up with their future owners' info and waiting to be mailed.
Hand-sewing the pillow seams (those cups had a snack in them...no liquids allowed in the sewing area!) Sewing makes such huge messes!
Stuffing the pillow
Some pillows waiting for blankets
***NEW*** Ladybug fabric. Blue will be blanket, pillow will be red/white polka dot
***NEW***Ladybug will be blanket, pillow will be red/white polka dot
As you might imagine, this project has gotten bigger than our wildest dreams. We have been buying the fabric and postage ourselves. As I continued to buy, I started to tell God that I was getting a bit nervous about the cost and could He please provide some help? I WILL NOT dip into the $11 profit for Joy. ALL of the money from the blanket sets will be for her.
And guess what?? No sooner had the words left my lips but I received two emails from friends who are quilters. They both have a lot of fabric that they don't need and wanted to know if we could use it!! Woohoo!!! It's on it's way!
When it gets here, I will post photos and we will switch over to that fabric. For the next few days, I will continue to purchase what we need to cover what we are offering here, unless you specify that you want to wait and choose from the newer fabrics that are coming. If you REALLY want one of the fabrics we are currently offering, don't wait! I may not offer them after the free fabrics arrive.
For those of you who are new to the blog, please keep scrolling down for choice of fabrics. You can use the Pay-Pal button on the top of my sidebar to place your order.
