Week 3: Saturday Giveaway

Hi!  Well here we are on week 3 of this crazy heart month.  The Nashville Heart Walk was last Saturday and next week on the 29th is World Heart Day.  This was just the right month to launch this heart campaign into existence and hope and give and love along with you guys.

Each week we host another fun giveaway for all the donors from that week.  And I’m back to tell you what one of this week’s donors will find in their mailbox!

The past two week’s I have shipped everything together, but this week you will receive several packages because I’m sharing about some favorite companies.

First up, we’re back this week with another set of 4 key fobs.  I’ll be gearing up soon to add more to my shop in time for the holidays, but in the mean time this is your shot at a set of 4 fun and colorful key fobs.

Brave Will Be Our Song has been our theme for this heart campaign.  I hand lettered several different versions of these words and this 5×7 black & white print will accompany this weeks goodies.

I’ll never forget standing in Chuck E Cheese with Amon watching him play a game with another little boy just days after we arrived back in Tennessee without Everett.  I honestly don’t remember much from that time period.  We were picking out burial plots and arranging his visitation and celebrate of life service and choosing all the burial things like his casket and what flowers would be in his pall.  Just all the things a parent never wants to do and we were suffocating in all of it.

As I watched Amon and this other little boy the sweetest woman came up to me…the other little boy’s mom…Carmella…and she said all these kind, empathetic words to my heart.  I stood in that Chuck E Cheese and cried.  I want my son back…none of this is fair…though we sing about death losing it’s sting, it still stings deeply…and I just needed someone to acknowledge that none of this was okay and that is what Carmella did for me that day.

Carmella is a local artist and is insanely talented.  When she wanted to donate an item to our big heart month I was over the moon excited.  Please check out her store HERE and keep an eye out for her re-stocks!  She in crazy talented and even more crazy kind.


Anyone else ever heard of this pretty awesome shopping place called Amazon?!?!?!?  Hahahahaha.  A $25 Amazon gift card is up for grabs this week too.  Treat yourself or save it for the holidays.

Look how insanely cute this Vintage Rose Heart Strong sweatshirt is!!!  This sweatshirt and their Purpose x Love Pouch will come to you from Jessica’s Four Hearts Shop so the winner gets to pick their size!  Is your brain already thinking about Christmas the way mine is?!?!

What an amazing shop!

And last, but certainly not least, you guys know I love Lindsey from Bottle of Tears.  Lindsey is so graciously going to send one of you my most favorite earrings ever ever ever!!!  I wear them ALL THE TIME and they are lightweight and gorgeous and make the most perfect little tinkling noise in your ear when I walk.  I might have a problem. 🙂  The Long Arch Teardrop Charm Earrings are perfection in an earring.

I would be beyond thrilled to receive this package of goodies in my mailbox.  I wanted these giveaways to be special and really things I liked too.  I wanted this entire campaign to be real and meaningful and special.

    Would LOVE to win the sweatshirt. Our son was in Morning Star, before Meredith, and we brought him home 7 years ago. He too had his surgery in China, along with another. He had TOF. We absolutely were blessed with the amazing care he received there. We tried to donate, but it says the PayPal account is closed.
