In addition to teaching at a new school, I am now in the process of trying to start the process of adopting a child overseas. There's so much paperwork. So all the proceeds from all my craft sales will now go towards helping to fund the cost of our adoption. We will be trying to adopt a kid from the Philippines. They gave us a two year waiting period. Right now we are filling out the pre-application papers and applying for passports. We've been to a couple of meetings and it still seems so out of reach, but I think this is what God is calling us to do right now.
So I just recently updated my etsy site and I have been getting a few more orders in. Yah!!! One of the orders was for a graduation book. I had so much fun putting this one together, I thought I would share it with you. The customer gave me a few details of what she wanted: colors, daughter's name, the year, Jer 29:11, and the college she would be going to. I took her ideas and turned it into a graduation gift that they can add pictures to. I really enjoy making these books because each one is different and it forces me to think in creative ways to include all the elements that the customer wants. These unique gifts are a great way to celebrate all the great milestones and are highly prized by the recipients. They are available in my etsy store for $25. If you are interested in having a book made for you, drop me a line with the basic details and I will make something up for you. Enjoy
