ChildFund Shared My Sponsorship Story On Their Website...

ChildFund International

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share that Child Fund wanted to share my sponsorship story on their facebook page. As I have told you all in the past that we have been sponsoring a child named Salifu from Banjul, The Gambia since January 2006. Ever since 9th grade in high school I always wanted to be a sponsor to a child in need and Child Fund has made that dream come true. If you are able I would encourage everyone to sponsor a child from Child Fund. They are one of the best charities in the world and they take as much money as they can and give it straight to the children in need. One amazing thing that sets Child Fund apart from the rest is that not only does the child get sponsored but the whole family gets sponsored. They receive medical, dental, food, education and so on. You are also able to write to your sponsored child and exchange letters, pictures and gifts which I have done with Salifu straight from the start. If we all just sponsored one child then we can get rid of hunger in this world. Not one child in our world should go to bed hungry and going through Child Fund they literally change these little lives. You can read my story here and if you would like to sponsor a child just go to their official website here. It is just so you know. The sponsorship fee each month is only around $24.00 and trust me when I say that you WILL receive more in return then they get. Plus, just knowing that you are literally helping to change these little lives and their families, well that is just priceless to me. When Salifu is too old for this program we will sponsor a new child and I will pass this down to my children and make it a family tradition to sponsor children as long as we can. We spend SO much money on craft items and we know how expensive that can be. Just imagine taking only $24.00 a month and literally changing a whole family and knowing that they will not go to bed hungry, knowing that the children will receive education, knowing that the whole family receives medical...well that is ALOT for the little amount that you give them each month. Each time I get a letter from Salifu and his family is literally a gift to me. Child Fund sends me Salifu's report cards, school work that they are proud of, updated pictures and lots and lots of letters.
We also send them extra money for special occasions like birthdays, christmas and they are able to use that money for what ever they need. I sent Salifu money for his birthday this past June and he was able to have a birthay party with the children in his village. Probably his first birthday party ever! How amazing is that?
I want to send a special thank you to Child Fund for wanting to share my story with the world.
If I can only get one more child sponsored then it is SO worth it. I would share a picture of Salifu but I think I packed up his letters and pictures and put them in storage since our house is on the market. If I happen to find it I will post it so you can see how beautiful this little boy is.  Please go check Child Fund out and think about sponsoring a child from them. It will change your life just as much as you will change their lives!
Thanks and I will talk to you all soon!! ~Terri

Two Pink Peas Giveaway Is Open.....

As promised I am posting my giveaway today although it is past midnight but I am getting it done. This is everything all piled up together. I am going to post a few more pics and explain everything that one of you will receive!!

Here we go..

Ok, I am going to try and explain each item in this giveaway for you but just know that you will get every single thing in these pictures. I might add more goodies as time goes on. I will let you know what I add if I do that! 

In this big bundle you are going to receive:

One ColorBok Patterned Paper Pack with 8 sheets of
12" x 12" called "Whimsy Assorted"

One ColorBok Patterned Paper Pack with 8 sheets of
12" x 12" called "Earthtones"

3 Separate Card Making Kits, all are different. Each kit makes 4 cards. Each kit contains 4 cards, 4 envelopes, 4 adhesive buttons, 12 adhesive rhinestones, 4 ribbon bows, 2 paper embellishments and 1 sticker sheet. Each kit has a total of 31 pieces. I will give you a little description of each of these 3 kits. The 1st kit has pink, black and gray colors and the 2 embellishments say "Thanks" and "Friends". The 2nd kit has pinks, purples and looks like an off white color which is embossed with little circles. The 2 embellishments say "Happy Birthday" and "Congrats!". The 3rd and last kit has pinks, whites, blacks, turquoise or it could be a blueish color and the 2 embellishments say "Congrats!" and "Happy Birthday". I bought a bunch of these at Target because they were only $1.00 each. I am planning on not putting the cards together in the kits like they are meant to but I am going to take things apart and use parts of the cards to make other cards, if that makes sense. It is worth it just for the buttons, ribbons and blings. I can see someone really being creative (which is ALL of you, just saying) and making a whole NEW and different look then what is shown on each kits pictures. But feel free to do whatever you wish with them.

You are going to get 2 packages with 3 glitter glues tubes in each package. The colors are Blue, Green and Red and Pink, Purple and Silver. There are also from the dollar bin at Target. I bought a ton of these. Each glitter glue tube contains .41 ounces.

Next you are getting 1 bottle of Silver Glitter Glue and it contains 4 fluid ounces.

2 sweet Rubber Stamps that say "hello" and Thanks"

I am throwing in 4 packets of my Peel N Stick Ribbon. They each have 3 separate ribbons for a total of 3 yards in each package. They say "Let's Go For A Walk", 1st Grandchild and the ribbon under that in the same package says "Precious Baby" and one package has adorable blue cars and the ribbon under the cars says "Day Trip" and the last package says "Happy Hanukkah".

You are also getting 2 spools of ribbon, one baby pink and one is purple. Very cute. Each spool contains 10 yards of ribbon.

You are getting 1 White Jelly Roll Pen, I have to say that I LOVE these!!

Next is a package from Simply Creative with 6 Jelly Tags plus 1 yard of Trim. All of the Jelly Tags are different. 1 says "'Cook", "the", Kiss", "Always", a picture of lips and the last one is a picture of a rolling pin and a bowl (I think it is a bowl But these are cute!

I am adding in some pretty Shimmery Red Cording. It is almost thin like twine but you can use this for so many things. I did not measure this but this is a really good amount.

Last but not least I am giving you 16 Chipboard Tags with Ribbons already attached. You will get 2 tags of each size, color or shape. Like for instance I am giving you 2 big round silver chipboard tags with white ribbons, 2 large red rectangle tags with white polka dots with white ribbon, 2 smaller red rectangle with white polka dots with red ribbon,
2 plain green circle tags with white ribbon, 2 lighter green with white polka dots with white ribbon, 2 small silver rectangles with white ribbon, 2 green scalloped squares with white polka dots with red ribbon, 2 red scalloped squares with green ribbon. So that is 16 chipboard tags in total. You can alter these, change the ribbons if you wish, add embellishments or just use them as is for as gift tag added on a gift bag or gift. The opposite side is just plain brown chipboard so you can totally decorate these with stamps and use them on scrapbook pages or cards.

I will leave this giveaway opened until my birthday which is August 31st. I am going to give you a ton of ways to gain extra entries if you wish.

Well..Shoot, I Did Not Meet My Own Goal For My Giveaway Today.....

Hi everyone! As you can see it is almost 3:30 am and I just got home about 2 hours ago and had some family things to deal with as soon as I walked in my door so I was not able to post my giveaway. I am truly sorry about that. I have been going on very little sleep for the past several days and am running on fumes. I have to get up early for my sons middle school orientation this morning on the 19th so I need to hurry and get to bed... but I promise to post my giveaway just as soon as I can tomorrow before I go to bed..LOL. I feel really terrible because I really thought I would be able to get home in time and post it for you all. Obviously that did not work so I will make sure to do it no matter what later on today.

Thanks for hanging in there with me and I am really sorry. My intentions were to post it last night but you know how that goes when you plan something then something unexpected comes up. One question for you all.. do you prefer to just leave comments to enter in giveaways or do you prefer using the Rafflecopter instead. I would really love to hear your preference!!!  Here at Two Pink Peas I want to do what you all prefer instead of using something that irritates or frustrates you. Basically, I want to make it as easy as possible in every your feedback will help me tremendously on this one. Thanks in advance for your comments!!! :O) 

Ok.. I will see you soon.. TODAY soon, meaning the 19th I am really sorry that I was not able to get to it, this really stresses me out beyond belief. Since I was little I never liked to disappoint anyone and I still feel like that and I feel like I did. You are probably thinking that this is not that big of a deal...but to me it is!! I appreciate each and every one of you and your opinions and I am here to please and want to make you all happy. When I announce that I am going to post a giveaway on a certain day I fully expect that I will have time to post it and I have full intentions to post it on that day. So I am going to add a few more things to my giveaway as a "I am really sorry that I did not follow through and I hope this makes up for my mistake". My Two Pink Peas blog really matter to me, every single one of my followers and blog readers matter to me and when I say that I am going to do something I want you to understand that I mean it and will follow through on it.
Because I am late I will make up for it!!!!

Ok.. See you soon. Have a great day everyone and I will be back before you know it!!

XOXO ~Terri

Heads Up..Getting Ready For A New Two Pink Peas Giveaway...

Hi girls!! How is everyone doing today? Excellent, I hope. After running my many errands that I have to do today I will be posting a brand new giveaway sponsored by ME. It is a huge Thank You for being so loyal to me and Two Pink Peas. I will be gathering some items together and will post all about this giveaway later tonight when I have time to sit down and put it all together. In other news, a new sponsor contacted me a few weeks ago and we are working on a giveaway sponsored by them so until that giveaway is ready I wanted to do a giveaway for you all right now meaning today!!! :O) 

Plus, my birthday is on the 31st of this month so this giveaway will be in honor of my birthday and me getting older..LOL. The BIG 42!! Ouch is all I can say. I don't know about you girls and guys but my mind does NOT feel 42!  I certainly don't look like I am going to be 42. To be perfectly honest with you about 99% of the people are always shocked and I mean shocked when they find how old I am. Thank goodness I at least inherited great genes for that..LOL. My body on the other hand feels 102 years old.. sheesh. There is nothing I can do about how my body feels since I have severe chronic pain on my jaw/tmj (my whole face is actually always in pain) from my total joint replacement and I also have fibromyalgia.  Enough sad talk and back to my giveaway, I wanted to give you a heads up that I will post the giveaway tonight (it is my goal to post it tonight so please don't be upset if I can't actually post it until tomorrow. I am going to do my very very best to post it today or tonight sometime)!!!

Obviously my blog candy will be all craft items and all brand new!  It's just a simple thank you for being loyal and oh no I am getting older giveaway! LOL

I hope you have a fabulous day everyone and I will talk to you later today!

Hugs to you ALL!! ~Terri

P.S. I know that some of you have chronic pain or suffer from fibromyalgia so I wanted to let you know that I am in an AMAZING facebook fibromyalgia group if you would like to join. When you have chronic pain you need support and this group will give you tons of support plus so much more. If you are interested just leave me a comment here and I will get back to you with the link to join. Trust me when I say this is a very special group and I love it so much. These girls help me get through my very rough days, so if you suffer from chronic pain or fibro think about joining. You will really love it!! Sorry for all of the
