Giveaway :: Lindsay Sews

Today I'm back with another great giveaway/shop feature for you ladies! Are y'all excited? I sure am because today, I'll be giving away not one, but two pairs of lovely earrings! So let's take a look at our sponsor!

About The Shop ::


Today for our Monday feature, I'd like to introduce you to a lovely little shop called Lindsay Sews! This is a organization started by Mrs. Lindsay who makes and sells adorable button covered earrings! Lindsay started making and selling button earrings a while back with the purpose of raising money to go towards adoption fees. Here is a bit about Lindsay and Lindsay Sews that I borrowed from her Adoption Fundraiser Earrings page on her website:

"A little about me: I love to support handmade and stay crafty. I regularly blog at Lindsay Sews and Craft Buds. My husband and I are currently on the waiting list for three different adoption programs, hoping to enter a program with a wait time of 2 years or less. We are working to save money in various ways, and plan to take advantage of $18,000 in federal and work grants, which makes $10,000 our fundraising goal.

When my husband and I got married five years ago, we had talked about the ways adoption had each come into our hearts. For me, it was volunteering at a family shelter alongside an adoptive mother that really opened my eyes to adoption. My husband grew up with an adoptive sister, and watched his parents open their home to provide, even when it wasn't easy. Years later, the desire to adopt had not gone away, but had only grown stronger!

Adoption to me is a chance to give a home to a child. A chance to open my heart and eyes to a child, to learn from that child and to grow together as a family. It is not a chance to "do something good." It is not about feeling that my way of life as an American is more right than in other cultures. It also breaks my heart to realize that the system has been abused, with adoption scandals in the past that have only brought us further from healing and hope as a world society. 

While we wait to find out which adoption pathway is best for us, whether that is international or domestic, I've been busy making hundreds (maybe thousands?) of handmade button earrings to help offset the costs of adoption. The fabric-covered buttons were made with love by me and a dear group of friends."

Here are a few of the lovely button covered earrings which she sells:
