Team Chase's Adoption Auction

It's {finally} here...our first auction to raise money to bring our two little sweeties home from Ethiopia!!

First of all, let me just say a big thank you to those of you who have been followers of this little blog in the last year (we are almost at our one year blogiversary!). Next, a big WELCOME to those of you who are visiting from another blog that you follow. In this blog, I write about adoption, family, crafting, and life in general from my Christian/working mom perspective. :) If you like what you see, feel free to follow...we love friends! :) And, last, but not least, I have to give a shout out to my amazing creative friends and bloggy buddies who donated their goods to make this auction possible...THANK YOU!

So, on to the reason you are here...our Adoption Auction. I am SO excited for this auction! We have been given some awesome donations (mostly handmade!) from some great friends and from people who we've never even met! Here's how the auction will work:

1. Peruse the AWESOME items that are for sale during the auction (January 29th, 2011 at midnight through February 5th, 2011 at 11:59 p.m, central standard time).

2. Find the items you would like to bid on and leave a comment* with your bid, name, and e-mail address. (Your bid on most items will include shipping from Missouri, so please keep that in mind as you place it! :))

3. If you win, I will send you an E-mail requesting payment for the item and/or information about your requests (if the item is custom-made). Upon receiving payment via check or paypal, I will ship the item to you!

That's it...super easy! And, every last penny that you spend will go directly into our adoption fund. Our overall expense is around $30,000. So far we've raised/had donated close to $2,800.  Almost 10%!  We are excited to see where this auction will place us on the financial portion of our adoption road!!

So, without furthur ado...the auction items!  (Click on each item for it's bid page.)  Happy shopping!
