A Sucessful Spring Auction

The auction way surpassed my hopes and goals.

We made it to 364 dollars, and that includes the winning bids, some sweet "additional" donations, and a couple of purchases after the auction ended which included jewelry, and an anonymous donation that allowed me to send the little angel bear to a couple of dear little girls.

I want to publicly thank everyone who gave to the auction both personally and through their business.

Those of you who donated personally, and those who made the winning bids and the "along the way" bids. (Too many of those along the way to name but  I thank you soooo much, and I will cite the winners). Accept my loving thanks. I have prayed over ALL of you! <3
Bonnie, Ellen, Kevin, GG (Eileen), Kelly, Tracy, and Alison. Roxanna, Dawn, Amy, Connie, Bridget, Sara, Ellen, Megan, Rebekah, Rachel, Lindsey!

Here is a list of the fb pages or shops of people who gave their wares. {In no particular order}.
Thank you for being willing to share of your business, and I am giving back in the best way I can, some word of mouth advertising for YOU, both on facebook, and here on the blog!

If I have left anyone out, kick me now, remind me later, and I will update this list. But I have been praying in thanks for each of you by name, reviewing my lists obsessively, and just so incredibly grateful. My husband and I thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! 

There have also been a few purchases of coffee cozies, peanut butter cookies in the half dozens, and a few Make an Offer purchases at our fb virtual yard sale. Every little bit counts, and we are getting closer and closer to the next big step. I literally cannot wait to be able to announce our home study, and each step of our Dossier process. :-D
