Send a Message in a Bottle Cap

Bottle cap necklaces are very popular right now and would make a great gift. Anyone would be happy to receive this sweet surprise in the mail. If you would like to purchase a necklace as a gift, I will include a message from you and a note letting them know that their gift also helped buy a pair of shoes for a child in Ethiopia.

I have an awesome new design to share with you today. It is called Bright Dot and can be made with any initial you would like. All of my girlfriends really like this design. It is also available with the phrase Cutie Pie and LOL.

If you want to buy a Bright Dot Initial necklace, simply type the initial you would like in the text box provided. Please include any gift messages in Paypal's "Special Instructions to Merchant" at checkout.

Cute necklace, special gift, big smiles, good shoes for $5 = great bargain!
100% of your purchase will help buy shoes for children in Ethiopia :)

Bunches of Bottle Caps

Wow!! Today has been busy, crazy, and fun! During my first day selling my necklaces through my blog, I have sold 40 necklaces!! That's $200!! That's 11 new pairs of shoes!!
Some of the necklaces were sold to my friends at gymnastics. Some were sold to other AWAA families. Most were sold to people I don't even know! Thank you to everyone who purchased a necklace. It makes me happy to know that 11 kids will have new shoes.

Africa Custom Designs

Today I am sharing my Africa bottle cap necklaces. The images were designed by Becky Burk. Mrs. Burk adopted a little boy from Ethiopia through America World Adoption Association (AWAA). There are three funky designs to choose from. I love them all. Click on the picture for a bigger view. Each necklace comes with a 24-inch chain. The cost is
$5 + $1 S&H per necklace and can be ordered to the left with the PayPal button. 100% of your purchase will be donated to Children's Hopechest to buy shoes for the kids in Ethiopia. If you have questions, you can click on the "Contact Me" button at the bottom of the page.

Peace... Love... Do Good!

Shoppin' for Shoes

Hi! Welcome to my very first blog! I am excited to let you know that our family is adopting a little boy from Ethiopia. We got our referral just last week. We can't share any information yet, but I can tell you this...he's really cute!

Since we started the adoption process, I have been learning a lot about the kids in Ethiopia. One thing I've learned is that they go without many of the things I take for granted - like shoes. Many of the kids there go barefoot and good shoes are a luxury. I have been reading the blog "Family from Afar" about the Wistrom family. Mrs. Wistrom, the mother, helps find sponsors for children in Ethiopia through Children's Hopechest. She took these pictures when she was there.

When I see pictures like this, it makes me want to help. So my mom and I thought it would be a good idea to start a blog to share my bottlecap necklaces. All of the money will go toward buying shoes for kids through Children's Hopechest. A good pair of leather shoes with thick soles costs $18. I will keep track of how many shoes we buy. I have lots of designs to choose from and lots of fun ideas. I'll post new ones from time to time.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you will come back often.
