silent auction for Nie Nie

Thank you everyone for such warm wishes about my blog-versary. It is nice meeting most of you, whom I have never met before and feel free to come out of the wood work anytime to say hello! I always wonder who actually reads my little blog and it is so nice to know that I have so many kindred spirits. 

I am so encouraged by the nice things you all have said and I look forward to another year of blogging (as God permits)...

On another note, I have seen how this blog-osphere community bonds together to help a neighbor in need and I wanted to do the same. In case you haven't heard, Stephanie (from Nie Nie Dialogues) and her husband Christian were in a plane crash and have extensive injuries. The doctors say their recovery will take awhile and will cost well into the millions. Their family is working together to help them as they have 4 little children and many others are pitching in as well. Part of the pitching in are numerous bloggers who are holding silent auctions to donate to Nie Nie.
So for the auction, it will start August 28th, which has been declared by Design Mom as Nie Nie Day, and will go until Sunday the 31st at 11:59 p.m. PST. To be entered in the auction just leave a comment and email on this post, higher than the previous bid (please do at least $1 increments). Once the auction is closed, the comment with the highest bid amount will win the crown (and lucky for you, I am not quite as popular as some of the blogs out there, so winning this is very doable). The winning bidder can pay directly to the Stephanie Nielson Fund (and after forwarding the paypal receipt of donation to me), I will ship the crown to the winning bidder.

Now the item that will be auctioned off is this special Sweet Flora Crown, which has been made for this special purpose...

This sweet crown will be perfect to help this sweet family in need. 

If you aren't able to bid, please do pray for the Nielson family. To read more on them visit Nie Nie Dialogues or updates done by her sister at Cjanerun.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at
