Dressember Earring Sale

**An update is at the bottom this post. 
It never ceases to amaze me how God not only provides but how creatively He provides.  It's very seldom in the way we would take care of business and it's always a thousand times better than anything we could come up with.  

I shared with y'all here why I decided to join the Dressember movement and what it was all about.  If you follow me on instagram or Facebook, then you've seen me posting a picture of myself everyday in a dress. (well almost everyday.  I've had a few all day pajama fests too).    

We are halfway through and I'm not gonna lie, I've had more than one day that I really wanted to throw on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.  But then I think about why I'm doing it and I'm ashamed at myself when there are women and children who are stuck and trapped in a life of human trafficking. The statistics that have been shared by Dressember and so many of the women who are standing with me to spread awareness are startling to say the least.  I am so proud to be a part of something bigger than me and actively doing something to bring change.

But back to our creative God who provides....we are halfway through the month of December and I am a little over halfway to my $500 goal I set for myself to raise.  Then I get a message from a dear woman who I have never met who wanted to donate her creative resources and her precious time that it will take her to make them.  She has generously agreed to make 11 pairs of earrings and 100% of the profits will go straight to my Dressember Campaign!!  She is even covering the cost of shipping them to each of you.  

I am so overwhelmed by her kindness and willingness to do this smack in the middle of December. You see,  April is a busy mom herself.  She has a beautiful family that is unique and full of God's grace.  Several years ago when her four children were old enough that she and her husband could take a trip alone, it was on that very getaway trip that God revealed to them to become foster parents....now five years later they have five more kids!   I love that.

How this will work
I was going to auction these off on Instagram but it just happens that I am on a trip getting to visit my grand kids who live 12 hours away from us.  So instead of being stuck to my phone for quite a huge chunk of my day when my time is so limited with them,  I decided to post the sale here.  

  •  I have listed the suggested retail price.  You may purchase each pair by making a minimum donation of the suggested retail price.  If you would like to donate more, you totally can!  But don't feel like you have to.  Every single donation is a blessing.


  • Just leave your Paypal address in the comments below with the specific earrings you would like to purchase according to how they are numbered and the amount of donation you will be making next to each pair .   

  •  I will send the invoices asap once I have a free moment with the grandkids.  Please pay them within 24 hrs. 


**Feel free to leave a back up paypal address if someone snagged the earrings you wanted.  I will send an invoice to the person next in line if the original buyer doesn't pay her invoice within 24 hours of me sending it.

Once all the invoices are paid, I will make one donation directly to my dressember campaign under the name Earring Sale

These cannot be guaranteed delivery by Christmas.  Thank you for understanding.

 (These are my favorites too ~stephanie)




Thank y'all SO much for your generosity and for standing with me in the fight against human trafficking.  Thank YOU April for being so giving of yourself and the resources God has blessed you with.  

If you missed out on the earrings you had your eye on but would still like to make a donation by sponsoring me directly on my Dressember page, just click here.  

Y'all rock big time! xoxo 

UPDATE:  Together we raised a total of $200 from this sale!
WOW!  I am no only $40 away from my goal.  Thank each and every one of you SO much!  And April, you are such a blessing. Thank you for sharing your talent with us all.

I will post the payment to my Dressember  campaign page as soon as we get home from this trip.  Dressember doesn't offer paypal as a form of payment and I will have to use my paypal visa debit card which I didn't bring with me.  It will be posted by this weekend.  I can't wait! xxoo
