Christmas cards for a cause…

Have you even THOUGHT about designing your Christmas card for this year yet??? WELL..if you haven’t had a chance to—I want to share an incredible way that YOU can GIVE BACK with EVERY card this season! Some DEAR friends of ours have taken the leap of faith and they are adopting from Ethiopia!!! To help raise money for their adoption—and because they are graphic designers…this season they are designing Christmas cards for a cause!!! EVERY card design will be customized JUST for you–and the proceeds go to help them with their adoption!!!Just a little bit about this sweet couple…Mark and Rachel Campbell! They live near us and they have been doing A LOT of the design and web work for Wiphan Care (they do amazing logo work, web design…and they can put together a information packet and brochures that are just amazing!). Along with being a incredible designers–they also invented a precious baby toy/blanket that our Frankie baby just LOVED as a wee one and Isaac is enjoying now! Rachel is also a very talented ballerina! Let’s just say this couple is talented shall we?!

They felt the Lord leading them to adopt FIRST–and they are open to bringing home siblings!!! They are currently in the home study phase–and I’m so excited that they are also using the same agency we did so they are part of the AGCI family!!! So fun! You can help Mark and Rachel bring their little one/s home by getting your cards designed by them…and GET this they not only design them for you–but print them for you! They start at $60 for 20 printed cards and step up from there depending on the # of cards you want printed. The prices include design, printed cards, white envelopes, return address labels and free shipping! … And what’s left over goes towards their adoption fund. You can go HERE to purchase the cards and start the designing fun!!! All you have to do is order them online and Rachel will follow up with an email to get the photo(s) you want to include (if any) along with any particular design direction and wording.

AND if you don’t need cards…then you have to check out their cute bags and t-shirts in their shop!!! These would also make great Christmas gifts!!!! I LOOOVE the bag!!!

And a personal update from has been a LOOONG day. Actually this week has. We had an ultrasound on Monday on ITY’s belly (doctors wanted to make sure distended belly was just air and nothing extra)…still waiting on the doctor to call me about that tomorrow. Then today (Tuesday) Isaac fell backwards while sitting and when he bumped his head his ears started bleeding…which resulted in a trip to the ER, a CT scan and a late night all together. All is well–and it looks like he continues to have ear infection problems even with tubes and the bump just made the pressure burst. We have some blood work and PT tomorrow–so please pray for rest tonight for us.

I have to let you in on a quirky part of my personality. When things get crazy or hard–I develop a funny sense of humor where I do funny thing just to brighten my day. SOOO…today–it was JibJab. SO…wanna see what brightened my day and made me laugh after a long day??? Hope it does the same for you! (Are my children going to hate me one day for making these?! Sorry kids…mommy needed a little pick-me-up!)

Personalize funny videos and birthday eCards at JibJab!

And this is the last must see here with our whole crew minus Rich…you have to click here though to view it!

Okay…so there’s a little quirkiness in my personality for you!!! I am not sure how my personality comes across in my blog–but there is really a silly, not right nature about me…and I just had to give you a sneak peak into that too!!! Hope you all have a good night! Off to sleep along with my rockstars! DON’T FORGET to hit the Campbell’s blog and get your Christmas card design going!!!!!

Hey Girl – I have that same stress-induced quirkiness. It so drives my husband crazy but I just think it is a coping skill. Rough day for the McAndrews crew and I totally needed the laugh with Frankie and Laney. Thanks!
