Are you ready to win some RAD prizes?
More importantly are you ready to help build a well?

Let's go!!!

When we started planning and dreaming what Project 320 would look like this year, my biggest wish was to giveaway a Silhouette SD machine.  Fast forward a couple months and I find myself putting the Silhouette at the very top of my birthday and Christmas list.  I then spent way too much time entering all of the giveaways throughout the blogosphere over Thanksgiving weekend.  Can you guess what happened?  Out of thousands and thousands of entries, I actually won one of my very own over at Infarrantly Creative.

I screamed.  I celebrated.  I was so very, very excited.
But then I got to thinking.  To praying.
Suddenly I realized that this little Silhouette that landed in my lap, was an answer to prayer.  I wanted to give away a Silhouette to help raise money for water.  I now had a Silhouette.

It didn't come in the way that I expected, but I love how that is often how God shows up.

Prize #1
Power cable, USB cable
2 cutting mats (one for thick media, one for thin media)
Cutting blade
$10 gift certificate to the Silhouette Online Store

If you don't know what a Silhouette is, or what it can do, the question is more like what can't it do?
Any shape.  Any font.  No cartridges required.
Just imagine the fun crafts and gifts you could make with this little marvel!!!


I am amazed by Lisa Leonard.
She helps me seek little reminders of grace and evidence of beauty in my mundane.
She has the gift of encouragement, creativity and is abundantly generous.  I am constantly inspired by her lovely blog and love to give her thoughtful jewelry as gifts.

Prize #2
Lisa has generously offered a $50 gift card to her store.
A perfect excuse to get yourself a pretty little treat.
Yay!!!


Surely you know of The Pleated Poppy, and Lindsey, the girl behind all of the pretty?
She is a wonder with all kinds of mad skillz, yet is even sweeter than toffee crack.
Her blog is full of fun, fashion, and her magazine worthy home.  Her shop is full of happy, girly, fabric deliciousness.

Prize #3
Lindsey has the perfect solution to sass up your purse.
One ruffly zippered pouch
One ruffly checkbook cover
(in my favey colors, no less!)



I could write a grad school thesis on all of the ways I love and look up to Drew B.
She is like the sister that I always wished I had, an adoring wife, phenomenal mother, an encourager,  stinking funny, insanely generous, and way, way, way too talented.

If you ever have the opportunity to sit in front of her camera, she will capture your life in a way that will change you and your family forever.  She has given us such a gift in each image that she shot.  A gift that will last long, long, after our lives on this earth end.  Photographs have unique the ability to do that.  To freeze time.  To make a lasting memory.

On top of that, she shares her vast knowledge, and has translated it into normal, understandable, human language, through Momtog, the UNmanual and the UNposing Guide.  Drew has helped me fall madly in love with my camera and to embrace it's possibility.  Each time I stop time through the click of the shutter, I am so very thankful for what she has taught me.  When my memory gets hazy, and I can't fully imagine what my girls looked like when they were this young, I will be able to flip through the photographs that I've taken, and be transported right back to these busy years.  As much as I would love each of them to stay little, in some way, they will through the lens.

Prize #4
Drew has kindly offered a copy of her indispensable UNmanual.
It will change everything about what you think of your camera.
The settings will no longer be scary.
You will take pictures that you never thought possible
You will have an epic new super power.  The ability to freeze time.

  35. Entry #5 - I think about Charity water almost every morning when I get in the shower. I mean really, we are so blessed that we have unlimited water for our showers every morning while there are people all over the world who don't even have clean water to drink. Thanks for spreading the word to make a difference - may God bless this project.

  77. Just donated! Thank you so much for bringing attention to this wonderful project. Sometimes we get in our own little coziness and forget that we are not so different from other mommies around the world. We all want our children to grow up to be strong and healthy and achieve their dreams. Hopefully this project will help a lot of mommies worry about other things and less about whether the very water they give their children will make them sick. I know I will not take for granted the clean water I give my daughter tomorrow. I can't wait to hear how God works! mphokie@cox.net
