Flippin" Accessory FUNdraiser was Awsome!

We received more funds after the sale and are now at 4790.13!!! Yay! Thanks to all of you who offered your help and to those who were there encouraging us! It was a huge success!
This lady pulled a lot of things together in very timely fashion. She could see the tiny details while Dara and I were trying to work on the bigger things! She was amazing, a true asset to our weekend! Love you Gayle!
The lovely *P* working the prayer table. We made prayer cards with different topics as an outreach to those who may want to pray about a certain thing but don"t really know how. We were blessed to see a man who just came in off the street and bought a piece of jewelry a hand cream and took a marriage prayer...we felt he was going home to bless his wife. That was very sweet. These were a few of the items we were selling, friendship seeds, virtue flowers and a bouquet of Hershey kisses with a journal.
*C* and *K* came in and enjoyed a momma, daughter tea party! We loved seeing Moms and Daughters come in to enjoy a complimentary beverage and a couple of sweets.
A sample of some of our accessories!
My MIL and SIL...I laughed when I seen them sitting there both with their hands on their faces the same way deed in conversation.
YUMMMMM! Complimentary light and dark biscotti, Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies and cherry balls! We bought our tea and coffee from a group who were also doing a mission trip. They were selling "Just Us" which is a fair trade organic product. It was delish! Especially the Rainforest Rhapsody blend.
From left to right my sister, myself and my lovely mom! A rare thing to see all of us smiling and all with our eyes open!
The lovely *Natty Cat* talking with our hostess *Iris* sporting her lovely new 100% Pashmina silk scarf kindly donated to our sale by Sunshine's mom. She sent down 2 of them and they sold almost immediately when I said they came straight from China!
My partner in crime darling Dara serving my two nieces *D* and *D*! Without Dara's encouragement this event would have never happened. Love you girl!
Even the men got in on the action! Hubby and youth pastor being all cutsie and holding hands!!! Silly Boiiz!
My Mom and Mom in law! My moms maiden name is Carr and my MILs maiden name is Ford. Funny hey!
Our church sign has a sailboat on it and threw the years people that come would notice dimes turning up, sails up here and there when they were looking for confirmation from God on something or when we feel that God is telling us "well done my faithful servant"....after that sale was over I was at my car door and low and behold I looked down and seen this! I smiled and took a deep breath and I knew God was pleased with what we "Team Noah" did for the Children on Nain, Labrador.

What a great purpose, a great project and a great God that we serve. Yes, I assure you He is proud of you....even if you had raised $4.00. He is proud because you heard Him and obeyed Him. Goodness, I fail in the obey part so often.
