In celebration of this huge honor (and to hopefully get our video and story to go "viral" we will be having daily giveaways on facebook to encourage people to share our Give1Save1 link. We were donated some beautiful gifts and I wanted to share with you what you could win this week just by hitting that share button:
First we have these two BEAUTIFUL eternity scarves handmade by my friend Laura who is ALSO adopting from Uganda (same orphanage as us!!!) and they are awaiting their court date to bring their TWO sweet children home. One scarf is navy blue, and the other a forest green
Next we have some lovely original art work by my friend, Maria Pardo. You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram at MARIAP380 and also check out her etsy shop here!
Here we have custom jewelry FROM Uganda. The first is a beautiful necklace donated by our friends, Scott and Marianne (who traveled with us to Uganda to adopt their son and just returned with their daughter!) The neckalce is made my local widows who make and sell crafts for a living. The beads are paper beads and I secretly want to keep this treasure for myself...
The earrings are made by local Ugandan artist, Davis Muwumba - handpainted and made from recycled bottle caps. You can see more of Davis' art at his etsy shop here
Here we have handmade cards from my friend Des. She donated a collection of 6 cards for all occasions. You can like her facebook page here to see more of her designs and order cards (she also does custom cards!)
Next we have these rad scarves by my friend Misty. Here facebook page can be found here. She has graciously donated a beautiful blue eternity scarf with matching fingerless gloves AND a green/teal/brown neck warmer and head band. She really is a gifted artisan!
Here is another donation from our friends Scott and Marianne - here is a large purse made by local widows/women who make and sell their crafts for a living.
We also have a teal and black wallet made from the same group of ladies in Uganda
We also have this super ADORABLE handmade dress donated by fellow adopting mama and my sister from another mister, Melissa. The dress is size 18 months.
Lastly we have this ADORABLE hot pad and matching kitchen towel set made by my oh so crafty friend, Jessica. It has a cute ladybug print and it is so crazy cute I want to keep it for myself - but I won't.
