Summer Salad Swap, Hope for Sudan & Etsy Shop Update!

Happy Saturday!
I have some updates that I wanted to let you guys know about!

First up, last summer I hosted a Summer Salad Swap Link up & I am going to do it again this year!
I love making salads in the summer & love getting new salad ideas!
Link up your favorite salad recipes this Friday, July 27th!
{You can grab a button on the side bar}

Next up & most importantly......
My friend Jess & her husband planted a church in the Bay Area.
Her husband went to Sudan this Spring & he felt called to do something to help the Sudan, where people & babies are literally starving to death.

Their church will be sending a small team into this region to provide immediate hunger relief next month. Their desire is to continue to send groups of individuals in the near future.

They are trying to raise $25,000 in the next 5 weeks to help the Sudan.

Jess is having an awesome giveaway on her blog to help raise awareness & money for this cause.
I am honored to be a part of her giveaway.
I am offering a party design package from my Etsy shop.
25 invites & envelopes
25 favor tags
25 cupcake toppers
Would you consider helping spread the word about Hope for Sudan?

And, speaking of my Etsy shop, my shop will be on "Maternity Leave" starting August 1st.

I will most likely take the whole month of August off, so if you know you need an invite in August, make sure you place your order before August 1st.
Better yet, go enter Jess' giveaway & hopefully you will win an invite!
I just added this cute invite to my shop:
It is the invite I created for my sister's Little Man Baby Shower that I hosted today.
Shower Recap coming soon!

Hope you are having a great weekend!


  1. A million thanks, Mel. Those two words have never felt more inadaquate to me. And I'm dying over those invites!! Can't wait to see the recap.

  2. Mel, you are awesome! Thank you so much for sharing and supporting Hope4Sudan! Praying that God does BIG things through his Church around the world and blogosphere! :)
