Love & Provide: Plus a blog GIVEAWAY



"Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs..."



In the spirit of providing for their physical needs, I made these t-shirts for my kids.



I tell them all the time that they are my "favorite" (they're all my favorite!), and even though my kids can't read yet, I thought it was a funny sentiment to see all three of them in their "favorite child" shirts.



Don't we all need to be somebody's "favorite"?



Now for the

GIVEAWAY DETAILS:




I believe in the family.
And I want to do all that I can to help strengthen families.

That is why I am doing "30 Days for The Family (Proclamation)".

We are now halfway through our 30 days...and I want YOU to help me spread the word about this, so that other families out there will have access to these family-strengthening lessons and activities.



To thank you for your help and for joining me this month,
I am offering your choice of

THREE PRIZES:

Option 1 - I will make iron-ons of my "Favorite Child" design for each of your children in the colors that you specify. Iron them on to your own tees and you've got a fun V-day gift for your kids.

Option 2 - I will send you heart-shaped crayons for each of your children.

Option 3 - I will send you a set of fabric "F-A-M-I-L-Y" letters.

I will select THREE WINNERS randomly
on Monday night (MLK Day) at 11:59PM.



There are
THREE WAYS TO ENTER:

1. Leave a comment on your favorite post with your name and blog address (if you have one).

2. Post a link to your favorite blog post from this blog as a status update on FACEBOOK.

3. Do one of the activities I have blogged about with your own family, then blog about it and link back to my blog.

REMEMBER: The goal is to let others know about 30 Days for the Family,
so IF you feel inspired to post multiple links on Facebook or on a friend's profile...feel free.
You will get multiple entries for doing 1, 2, 3 more than once.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT
for me on the blog when you complete each of of the three activities.
This is how I will keep track of your entries.

Again, the deadline for entries is Monday evening at 11:59pm.
GOOD LUCK!
And thanks for playing!

  3. I absolutely love your blog, I've just recently come across it and really love your 30 days for the Family. I want to make those Family fabric letters so badly, but I don't have a sewing machine!!
    And the "favorite" shirts crack me up b/c my Mother in Law always tells each of us that we are HER favorite! lol
    I'm over at hersheykissed.blogspot.com.

  13. So this afternoon we did the crayons but I don't want to post them on my blog because we are going to give them away to cousins for Valentine's presents. So can that count for another vote? ;o) I will post that we did a fun activity. We are also going to play the pencil game. My kids LOVE games like these. Thanks for posting that one! The aprons are kid aprons. I make them, you can see some on my etsy site http://www.etsy.com/shop/celestialwishes?ga_search_query=celestialwishes&ga_search_type=seller_usernames
    But the woman is making me nuts because she wants them by feb 5th and hasn't gotten back to me on exactly what she wants!!

    Oh and a PS to anyone else reading this comment, Jocelyn is the first person who ever got me interested in sewing or making a quilt! Thanks J!!! ;o)
