Hello there and happy Sunday!
This post is long. Sorry about that! Please keep reading; it's worth it, I promise. First up, I'm linking up with the ladies at FLAP. This is what I wore today, but not something I would likely wear to Mass. Sorry, next week I will be cuter, with better hair and makeup and not in a t-shirt. I didn't go to Mass today (sick! boo!).
Here is me today:

Here's something I made today. This is Operation Write Home sketch 162:

And here is the story behind the "love Mercy" shirt I am wearing. Not too many months ago, I followed a link from someone's blog to a new-to-me blog, We are THAT Family. I was browsing around and saw that they had founded the Mercy House, so I started reading.
a Kenyan-based maternity home that rescues pregnant girls who are often homeless. These girls are SO young. At Mercy, they have a family, hope, education, support for their pregnancy and motherhood. And they begin to learn that they are valuable, talented young women.
So when Kristen offered bloggers a chance to review one of the new shirts and a bag, I jumped at it. For even one more person to read this and support Mercy House with a purchase, or prayers - or both - is so worth it.
Go learn more. And this bag?
So awesome. It's thick and so much more sturdy than the other reusable bags I have, most of which are beginning to tear. I can't wait to give it a trip to Target and the grocery store! Plus I love that the back side is patterned as well. I am going to order a couple more for myself. They have some really unique things in the shop, and it's a great way to support Mercy.
Mercy House will provide one of my commenters with a free tote bag! Comment to win; I'll chose a winner next Sunday. Be sure to leave your email address or come back on Sunday to see if you won.
Thanks for visiting me today!
