It's {finally} here...our adoption auction to raise money to bring our little girl home from St.Vincent!!

First of all, let me just say a big thank you to those of you who have been followers of this little blog in the last several months. Next, a big WELCOME to those of you who are visiting from another blog that you follow. And, last, but not least, I have to give a shout out to my amazing creative family, friends, and blog buddies who donated their goods to make this auction possible...THANK YOU!

So, on to the reason you are here...our Adoption Auction. I am SO excited for this auction! We have been given some amazing donations (mostly handmade!) from some great friends and from people who we've never even met! Here's how the auction will work:

1. Peruse the AWESOME items that are for sale during the auction (June 11, 2012 at 10:00am through June 15, 2012 at 11:59 p.m, central standard time).

2. Find the items you would like to bid on and leave a comment* with your bid, name, and e-mail address. (Your bid on most items will include shipping from Missouri, so please keep that in mind as you place it! :))

3. If you win, I will send you an E-mail requesting payment for the item and/or information about your requests (if the item is custom-made). Upon receiving payment via check or paypal, I will ship the item to you!
