For a very special boy...

Coming up, our church is holding a benefit for a very special little boy. I've posted about him before... his new name will be Caleb!
The Prevost Family!
Because of the rules of the country he is from (China), they can't share a picture of him online, but trust me is he cute! :) And I'm really excited, not only because this wonderful family is friends of ours (in real life), but they live  like 5 minutes away from me! You can read my Faithful Friday post about them here - The Prevost Family.

This benefit will be a Spaghetti dinner on a Sat night, with a craft sale that morning. Everyone who gets to know even just a little bit should know that I am a crafty person. Not like decorating, painting, drawing, or things like that, but I LOVE to do things like crochet, sew, and my newest love is RIBBON! :) (Does a hammer count? If so, that is my most loved newest love.. :)) One of the projects the mission board is doing for the Craft Sale is French Memo Boards. If you don't know what they are, they are boards with ribbons and buttons that you can stick pictures in, kinda like this one (or keep reading for pictures). My friend Rachel and I, both being part of the missions committee, finished up this project yesterday and this morning. Here are pictures of us making them and the finished project-

I'm Bob the Builder aka Depressed Train Conductor! :D

You don't want to get in our way.. We have our weapons!

Our mess shortly after we finished this morning.

All of them.. DONE!

One of my favs... Micky Mouse with black and white!

Another fav!

Like our model picture in the fish one? :)

And though I have a blister from the staple gun, learned that my cat wears flip flops (don't bother asking), and earned several new nicknames... it's all worth it because we know that we were a part of bring a special boy home! It was all for a very special boy!

Don't forget! Lyla still needs a FAMILY!


  1. They look great! I love a French memo board - we have one by our desk that I made and I stick pictures of the kids, little pictures they draw, etc. into it. You girls did a great job!

  2. Sarah I don't even know where to start. They are BEAUTIFUL!! We have had blessing after blessing and are speechless on how thankful we are to you and your church. There aren't many girls that would spend a weekend helping make items for someone else. I am soooo excited for the craft sale and benefit. This next weekend I am making little wallets and key fobs for it also!! Please tell Rachel thank you thank you thank you!!! You girls are the BEST and we are sooo lucky and grateful for your entire families friendship.
