Original post:


Okay, I cannot take it anymore.

I need to do a giveaway. You guys just rock. The gifts and encouragements you have given all of us this week has been overwhelming. Sprouts is going to be one rockin' baby house.

Ally is a 13 yr old girl that came to Kenya with a team I led last summer. Her heart was wrecked for a little boy at Mattaw Childrens Village named baby Georgie.



She came home from our 2 week trip and learned on her own how to make paper beads and since has been selling them on her etsy shop. She started to sell them with the goal to raise enough monthly support for baby Georgie to help raise him at Mattaw.



It first started as this....



Turned into this.....



...and now, has turned into many, many artistic designs, like this.




You are never too young, or too old to start making change. Ally is proof of that. She is an inspiration to me.

So, to honor her and to continue to support baby Georgie, I am giving away one of her "mixitup" necklaces pictured above.

To enter, all you need to do is go to her Twirling Trees etsy shop and tell me which creation of hers is your favorite.

Winners will be chosen at random sometime Friday morning!

I like the mommy and me bracelets.

They all are beautiful. I like the versatility of MiXiTuP, and the rush of color in kaleidoscope. But if I have to pick just one, I like Kenya, because it "represents the colors of Kenya." I want to get one to remind me to pray for you and the babies you'll be loving there.
