Christmas Shopping for a Cause, Part 2

***Welcome if you are new! Please check out our Ethiopian adoption story thus far with the links on the upper left, and on the right side is all of our current fundraisers including Christmas Cards, Shaklee Products, Just Love Coffee, and our Etsy Shop! Thanks For stopping by, and Happy Shopping!***

I LOVE these Christmas "Link Ups". Not only does it give us great exposure for our fundraisers, but we are buying a large portion of our gifts for others from OTHER adopting families. I love looking at(and drooling over!) what every one else is crafting up. Yes, a lot of the links are just coffee and shirts, and we have those too! But so many of them are so much more! There are links of people selling handcrafted jewelry, gloriously wonderful paintings(look for a post on this one specifically, it is what I'm "asking for"), amazingly creative ornaments, handcrafted toys and clothing, and everything else under the sun!

People who adopt are just like you, and just like you we all have different talents and creative outlets. So go on over to A Place Called Simplicity, and do a little Christmas Shopping. And of course there is Christmas Frenzie still going on at My Cup Overfloweth, that list grows by the day!

And without further delay, our most recent additions to our Malot's Hope Etsy Shop! We are the place to get reusable items for your home, and great gifts for your child! This is also where you will find our shirts which we are sporting in our family picture! 100% of the purchase price of items, unless otherwise specified goes directly to our adoption fund! I will gladly gift wrap and ship to the recipient, just ask. For more pictures of these and other items, head on over to our shop!

Personalized hooded towels, you choose the color and the name, and I will do the rest! These wash up great, and stand up to heavy use. The one my "model" is wearing is over a year old!

Sensory "Tag" Blankets. These oh-so-fun square "loveys" are perfect for the baby in your life. With squares of cotton, minky, and corduroy, and backed with terrycloth, there are plenty of textures to keep any baby interested! These have all sold out(in just 24 hours!). Look for more in a few weeks!

The blanket below has already sold and is going to a precious baby, THANK YOU for your support! Check out the Africa blanket pictured below it if you are in the market for blankets, they are one of my favorite items in the shop! We have a few different patterns available!

And last but not least, a set of 5 flax oil finished, handcrafted wood cars, nested in their own personalized initial bag. Perfect for the little boy(or car loving girl!) in your life. This was actually a birthday gift for my son, and it has been well tested by my 1 and 2 year old! Sets include one of each of the vehicles pictured.

So check out our shop, check out our links, check out the other families who are trying to bring home their newest members, because if we all do a little we can change the world. And really, Big Business doesn't need any more money anyways ;)

With Love,
The Garretts
