The 7th Annual Simple Gifts Open House was a huge success!

Y’all know how to PAR-TAY!  You amaze me.  You not only showed up, but you spread some serious love.  Thank you for your support of our little Open House, and for blessing folks around the globe by shopping with purpose.  YOU ROCK!
Because of YOU…through your recycled crayon and Three Below purchases, we are sending $300 to charity water, to bring clean water to those who need it most around the world. (
Because of YOU…through your purchases of Timbali pouches and bags, $155 will be shared with the women of Swaziland, Africa, so they may continue their ministry to orphans.  (
Because of YOU…through your Ornaments 4 Orphans support of $480, orphans in Uganda will have the care and comfort that they need.  (
Because of YOU…through your purchases of Shea Butter products and recycled paper jewelry, $474 will support the Bead for Life artisans in Uganda as they strive to make a better life for their families. (
Because of YOU…and your support of me and my crafty / artsy / chocolatey endeavors, we’ll be sending $150 to Doctors Without Borders ( to help the Syrian refugees…and $150 to International Justice Mission (, to help rescue girls from heart-breaking modern-day slavery.  
You have made a big difference in the lives of so many, my dear ones, and I cannot thank you enough for your support!  Making this journey (7 years now!) with such awesome, like-hearted folks like YOU has been the best trip ever…and I’m already looking forward to next year!   
But first…pumpkin pie.  🙂  
Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy Holidays, my friends!
