Bits of Splendor Monday {Project Hope Donation Drive}




We had our Project Hope Donation Drive on Saturday.
 I am SO blessed by everyone who came out. We received quite a bit of lovies, about 50 or so frames and cash donations that will go toward purchasing the rest of our craft boxes. 


I have to mention that one particular girl and her mom, drove an hour to bring us frames that she had collected just by posting about it on her facebook page! It was a huge blessing to me and I loved meeting Kristen and her mom! 

 Noisy River on etsy donated this cute banner to us and it worked perfect for our set up!

I had many good friends and family come to show their support to Project Hope and it meant a lot to me. I didn't get a picture of everyone who came out, but you know who are and I love you!

Swoop from the San Antonio Talons came to say hello too. He's a bit of a ladies man, that one. 
A special thanks to my friend Vanessa for keeping me company all day. 
And my friend Monica for keeping me hydrated and full all day ;)
Also especially to Green Baby Resale Boutique for allowing us to use their location! 

The first Project Hope Donation Drive was a success!!
>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<

One item we are still in big need of is the booties. We like to put a crochet hat and set of booties in each box.. Sometimes these are used to dress the baby, or they can be used in a shadow box as a memento.
If you or anyone you know can sew or crochet some little shoes, we need your help! We have about 30 sets, and I am praying we can somehow get 70 more before the 29th! 
If you wouldn't mind spreading the word, that would be awesome! 
I have a link to a tutorial for some fabric crib shoes, if you would like to see it, just let me know.


Tomorrow the Project Hope Raffle begins! Lots of amazing shops have donated items for our raffle, including Barn Owl Primitives, Take the Cannoli, Just Lovely things and lots more! a 5$ donation to Project Hope will get you one entry into the raffle and you can enter as many times as you'd like!

Happy Monday!
Top priortity on my to-do list this week is to enjoy the last week of summer break.
This time next week, I will be the mom of a first grader, who has to be at school by 7:45am.
Heaven help me!

How did you find a bit of splendor in your week?
Grab a button, link it up and share it with us!

  5. Laura, I wanted to email you but for some reason my i cannot connect through the 'mail' option that keeps popping up and I got all confused and I gave up because I'm rather technologically challenged.
    any hoo,
    My gram is teaching me how to make booties so if you never need any in future (29th not possible for me - years since I crocheted) could you please let me know in advance so I could start - including a goal number. I will be crocheting in honor of two early miscarried babies who are 'safe in the arms of Jesus'.
    i can be reached at mytimenthepen@gmail.com which is my public email.

    God Bless,
    Kassandra
