WW~A Season Of Giving

This Wordless Wednesday is not so wordless. I wanted to share with you how wonderful my family is by showing you my tree, but without words, it wouldn’t make any sense. This year things are so tight, I wasn’t going to have a tree. Not even a cheapo from the local hardware store. Last weekend, my kids and my mother all got together and conspired to get me a tree. It is all over decorated now with my Great Grandmother’s glass ornaments and the ones we have collected throughout our 27 years of the holidays together. I think it’s beautiful.

I also wanted to remind you all that the Blog • Bid • Hope auction benefiting The Liz Logelin Foundation and Anissa Mayhew. Begins today at the following sites. Adventures in Babywearing, Buried with Children, Mayhem & Moxie, Scary Mommy, 7 Clown Circus, The Extraordinary Ordinary, & Mama’s Losin’ It. Each has a variety of different goodies to auction. Bids start at $10 and bidding ends Friday. If you want to bid on the item I donated from ApronFrenzy, it is listed here at Holiday Baker’s Delight. I gave what I have to give and it circled back to me in the form of this lovely tree. Check out the auctions and see what you can give, if you win an auction the rewards are great.

Christmas 2009


The love we give away is the only love we keep

This past year has been quite trying for me and my family. But nothing has been bad enough to change the essential me. The person who wants to help everyone. The person who wants to give back for all the wondrous blessings I have received from my online community. Thanks to Carissa, at GoodNCrazy, I heard about an event being sponsored this week. You all know, I have love in my heart, but not two pennies to rub together. Putting food on my table is becoming increasingly difficult; however, I have aprons. You know, the ones at ApronFrenzy, that everyone loves but not everyone buys? (feel free to go buy one now) So I volunteered. They picked this beauty to use in the auction. And I am excited to be part of such a wonderful benefit. IMG_4441

This week seven different blogs will be acting as hosts for the auction.  They include: Buried with Children, Mayhem & Moxie, 7 Clown Circus, Scary Mommy, The Extraordinary Ordinary, Mama’s Losin’ It, and Adventures in Babywearing. All auction posts will be uploaded on Wednesday, December 9.  The auction will remain open until Friday, December 11 at 5:00 PST.  I believe my item will be auctioned on 7 Clown Circus, but be sure to check them all out and I am sure you will find gifts for everyone on your list!
