I love when you make beautiful things

Headbands for Korah!! We are celebrating our beautiful daughter’s birthday today and in honor of Princess Z we want to ask you a big, crazy request?  Will you help us bring 200 400 Headbands for Korah Girls ages 2-13!!  I leave for Ethiopia Feb. 15th on my mission trip with Visiting Orphans and want to bring beauty to the girls living on the dump and orphanages we visit.

I’m simply blown away by all the headbands pouring in the mail from all over the country!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!  Every Princess I meet in Ethiopia will get a gift of love from you!  I love you crazy bloggers!

I want to show you a few bands that we hand made. Hannah and my niece, Maddy created bands that are so colorful and fun.  There are no patterns necessary, just make them from your heart.  I love the bright flowers, too!!  My crazy readers, go a little crazy and allow me to put love on the head of every Princess I meet in Ethiopia – a handmade or store bought headband from you.

Here are some great links for head band ideas:

You can also purchase headbands here at Because Every Mother Matters for my collection for Korah girls. Click here. Starting today, for every “adult” headband they sell, they are donating 1 headband for my project.  1 for 1!!!  Thank you BEMM!!

Samantha Davidson and her blogger mom made these stunning headbands for the girls. http://davidsonpartyoffive.blogspot.com/2011/01/flowers-for-korah.html

Please invite your friends to participate in {Headbands for Korah} parties.  If you are making headbands, please email me if you have any questions. I can accept headbands up to Feb. 15th.

Thank you Emerson!!

Mail headbands & bows to:

    I am mailing out the headbands today that I promised last week. Mother Nature shut down north Texas last week for four days and my supplies were 20 miles away. I got them finished today and hope that they will make it to you in time. Since I can't go to Ethiopia, I'm so excited to spread a least a little sunshine in the girls' lives at Korah. Thank you for your heart for the orphans and children there. God bless you and all the others on this mission trip.

    The true filmaholic hears a song from the soundtrack and knows
    exactly where it comes in during the film. But television do not provide the same pleasure of watching a movie as does movie theatre with its huge screen and surround sound system.
    An electronic board alerting moviegoers when their show is starting and when it’s time for
    seating for that particular show, is situated in the
    lounge, as is a large HDTV.
