Owen and the Princess Desgins: March of Dimes Sponsor #3

Read how this started here.

My emotions are up and down now. I think this Reverse Psychology thing is really working… Mentally at least. Maybe even working too good. I think I’m starting to believe myself… We’ll see if it works physically, though I’m beginning to think if it doesn’t, I’ll be ok… really ok. Maybe it’s because my schedule had been so busy and I have a lot on my plate. The stress factor is out the door this month… Even with all of the relaxation training and yoga I’m trying. But it’s ok… It’s hard not being in control of this, but it’s given me some more perspective and really made me think I can be a lot more patient. It’ll happen in God’s time, right?

I think this fundraiser is going WONDERFULLY! We’ve gotten donations EVERY DAY (it was a close call yesterday but Jessica, Shannan and Kayce came to the rescue!) so far, and we’ve already raised over $250! At this rate, if we keep raising about $28 a day until the contest is over we’ll make the goal of $1000! I think that’s reasonable! If you know ANYONE who you think is looking for a holiday gift for a friend, or anyone who loves a good cause please let them know about this event! Like I’ve said before 100% of the donations raised are going to March of Dimes, a charity aimed at helping women learn about prenatal care, and helping to save babies before and after they’re born!

And there’s something in it for you too! Prizes… I counted yesterday and we’re up to about 33! That’s more than 33 winners and so far there’s only 18 donors… So needless to say there’s a lot to go around! AND if you donate $15 you’re GUARANTEED a prize made by me! Read more on this post.

One of the awesome prizes up for grabs is From Elizabeth from Owen and the Princess Designs. She makes beautiful custom wall prints like this:Elizabeth says her designs are inspired by her two beautiful blessings, a daughter who is 6 and a son who is 3. Her husband — also a HUGE inspiration and encouragement — is her high school sweetheart, and they have been happily married for eight years. I personally love her work, and that fact that she can make something custom and cute for any child! I think this would be the PERFECT gift for any of my siblings. Talk about something from the heart!
Elizabeth says she has a huge passion for all kinds of art. Her favorite artists are Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, and Mary Cassatt. She enjoys art museums (her two favorites are the Musee D’Orsay in Paris and the Metropolitan in NYC). She also loves reading, writing poetry and journaling, painting, cooking, shopping, scrapbooking, and going for a nice long run with her iPod.
She says she absolutely loves color and children’s rooms. And happy things! 🙂 So that’s what her artwork tends to reflect. She told me it’s always an absolute joy to help someone custom design something unique for their child’s room. She knows that anything you pick out for your child’s room is very special, and she considers it an honor to be part of that process.
And she says she’d love to be a part of that process for you! This generous artist has offered to give one of you donors a gift certificate to her shop. You’ll get a customized canvas painting done in acrylics on a high quality 16×20 gallery wrapped canvas (no copyrighted images can be used however — i.e. Disney characters, Nickelodeon characters, etc). The retail value is $50 based on her Etsy site but they’re sold in boutiques for $90! The gift certificate would include packing and shipping, which is an additional $15, so the total value is $65!People who donate $20 to March of Dimes will not only be helping a good cause, they will have a chance to win artwork from Owen and the Princess Designs. That’s for generous donors of $20 to the March of Dimes Fundraiser. Not only will you be entered to win that, but also more than 33 other items AND you get a thank you prize from me… Plus, you’re donating to charity! Oh, did I mention this is just one of over 33 prizes? You can donate by clicking the “chip in” button to the right, or by clicking here.

This is just one of more than 35 prizes (worth over $1000) that’s up for grabs in the free drawing (I’ll give you free tickets for every dollar you donate)!
