Selling Tees and Necklaces!!

A bit about the tees-- I started thinking of a design after our Orphan Sunday at our church, back in November. I really wanted something that was more than just a shirt for adoption. So, "love, pray, protect" came to mind in thinking about orphan care through sponsorship, praying for the widow and orphan, adopting, and foster care. I think most of our friends and family are doing at least one of those-- if not more!! :) And, after help from some very talented friends-- the final design was finished!
The women's tees are Tultex, fine jersey, 100% pre-shrunk cotton. (they're really soft and nice and long) They seem to be more of a Junior's cut/style, so it's recommended to order a size or two up!

**I'm adding an additional women's tee. The Tultex brand are cute, but they do run small-- I'm wearing a large, and I usually wear size small tees (Old Navy, Gap style, etc...) So, the second style is still a women's cut, but not as "fitted"-- but definitely not as boxy as a unisex cut! It's a Gildan Ladies' 4.5 oz. SoftStyle™ Ringspun T-Shirt.... definitely true to size.

The men's tees are Gildan, Ultra cotton, 100% pres-shrunk cotton. They are true to size.
(the words on the guys' shirt came out a darker brown than was expected so the brown will be a bit lighter/brighter on the next printed batch.)

ORDERING INFO: I am taking pre-sale orders for the t-shirts. You can order through the paypal link on the right side of my blog.

T-Shirts and Necklaces for sale... and an AWESOME fundraiser!!!!

Well, after MONTHS (seriously, we had a rough design of the shirts back in November!!), we finally got our shirts finished and printed!! I also have made some necklaces. By tonight or tomorrow, I will have paypal links for people to order tees and necklaces!! :) But, I'm excited about how they turned out and wanted to share.We also had a fundraiser at the house last night and did a Raffle/Auction Night!! Friends and family donated items to have raffled off--and we even had a few items in a silent auction. It was lots of fun and a special way to spend the evening surrounded by wonderful friends who are walking this adoption road alongside of us (and even carrying us, well me.... when the wait is too much to bear!!!)

And.... yesterday was 8 months of waiting!! Oh, how I hope THIS is the week!!!!! ( I know Gladney's FBI list doesn't represent all the waiting families, but according to the list, we have been in the #1 spot-- for a 4-5 year old boy-- for 8 months!!!) It's been hard... but I'll continue to wait for the perfect boy God has chosen for our family!!
