You're Invited!! and a Thank YOU

All San Antonio locals...you are invited to our first Project Hope Craft Event!
There will be food,door prizes from the Splendor Shop and lots of crafting ;)

We will be decorating and putting the items together for our memory boxes. I am so excited for this event and so thankful for each and every person who has donated to this project! 

We have received $670 in donations!!

Close to $220 of that from the Sugar and Dots Project Hope Raffle! A HUGE thank you to the many shops who donated to this raffle and to Kimmie for organizing it all.

We've also had items to fill the boxes donated from some amazing shops and people...
Here are the items we have for the boxes so far:

24 Hand stamped HOPE charms from Mama Mia
Cards for families who have a lost a baby, designed by Franchesca Cox of Small Bird Studios
20 Hand stamped HOPE tokens from Eagar Hands
25 Jeremiah 29:11 to go into little girl boxes from Blossom and Vine
25 Jeremiah 29:11 prints for little boy boxes from Cottonwood Lane
50 Matthew 10:30 hair lock tags
and 50 small hair lock bags 
50 crochet hats from Suzanne at TableforTwo 
A printed prayer for each box from Divulge with Flair 
50 Angel charms 
50 Cross charms from Kelly
50 Handmade "hearts of wood" made from wood from Brean

Along with donations from the other blogs and shops you see on my sidebar. These women all have such sweet generous hearts and I am so, so thankful to each of them! A special thanks to all of you have helped me spread the word with guest posts, and sharing the Project Hope button.
Also to each of you sweet readers, friends and family who made a donation or sent one of the lovies.

We are going this week to purchase the kraft boxes and craft supplies, as well as the remaining lovies we still need. We've had around 15 donated so far. 

If you would still like to donate any items for the boxes, there is still time. Deadline for receiving items is the 15th. We are holding the craft event on the 10th, but I can still add items up until the 15th and then I will take all of the boxes to Threads of Love when they are all complete. 

  Again, if you are in San Antonio, please make plans to come help us decorate the boxes this Saturday from 9am to 12pm. This will be a fun event to connect and join our hearts together for one cause.

  6. I am new to your blog and wanted to share a poem with you:

    when we lost our baby on november 5, 1998, lmost six years ago someone gave
    me a card with this poem and it has meant more to me that anything. so i
    thought i would share it. the scripture on the front is Job 1:21 and inside
    it says:
    " I was thinking abut what's ahead for the baby. Can you imagine-it will be
    taking its first steps on the streets of Heaven! Hannah was a mother who
    certainly knows how special a little baby is. Perhaps she'll be the one who
    will let it hold her finger as it takes those first staggering steps; and
    maybe she will be the one to coax it into taking it first steps alone!
    Perhaps Dorcas will see to it that its hems get let out, and that the
    buttons are sewn on that growing child. And Joshua! Just think what it would
    be like for a child to climb into his lap and hear-first hand- about the
    battle of jericho!..
    Maybe Petrer will take it fishing someday! It will never fall out of tree or
    breaks it's leg, for there is no pain or tears there! It won;t be afraid of
    the dark for there is no darkness there. The King of Kings, the Lord of
    Lords, he is the very one who said, "let the little children come to me." I
    expect there will be many a time when he himself will take that baby in his
    lap and let it know a love that makes all other loves seem puny by contrast.
    I wouldn't be surprised if the Heavenly Father keeps a few lollipops handy
    for just such occasions....
    And one day, you will be greeted with a " Hi Dad and Mom! I've got some of
    the neatest things to show you; and some really fantastic people i can't
    wait for you to meet."
