FANtastic Giveaway Celebration!

When my shop started nearing 500 fans about a week ago, I thought it would be great fun to put together a Giveaway Celebration to thank my wonderful fans for their support. (Little did I know that I would be over 600 fans by this time! YAY!)

I contacted some of my favorite Etsy shops and vendors to see if they would be willing to donate an item to help me say thank you. I put everything together over the last few days and just opened it up tonight. It makes me feel so good that I am able to celebrate the support I've been shown by doing this giveaway. BIG THANKS to the wonderful sponsors who are participating in this event with me!

So what are you waiting for? Go to my {FB FANtastic Giveaway Celebration album} and check it out. It's easy to enter to win some seriously great prizes! The giveaway is open until Thursday, March 17 (Happy St. Patty's Day!) and I will announce the winners here on the blog, to abide by FB rules.

Good luck!!

March for Babies - donating to a worthy cause!

The March of Dimes March for Babies is coming up in the next few months. I have a dear friend who's daughter Julia Grace, was only with us for 4 short months before she was called to heaven. Julia taught us many truly important lessons in her short life and I am so thankful for everything I learned from her. While I am unable to participate in my local walk this year, I am planning to make a personal donation, as well as donate 10% of All You Need Designs Etsy Shop March sales to this very worthy cause.

The March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money raised for March for Babies will help:

- support all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects
- educate women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby
- provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care
- push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children

I hope you'll consider making your own donation as well. Every dollar helps!!! THANK YOU!
