Like I mentioned Monday, this week is Lainey week, and wow it is! I’ve been getting so many dandelion dream custom orders and then my heart leapt at Lori’s post, so instead of blogging about little Lainey I’ve been knitting and printing, and thinking about my little girl. So I guess the week will extend into next.
I skipped last month’s Africa Love post, and it seems like I’m running into all kinds of things lately that I’m excited to share about, some initiatives and some are shops. All you can support through encouragement, purchases or donations.
First, I’ve been reading a lot of africa adoption blogs lately now that we are waiting. Here are a few if you are interested, I’ll also post them on my adoption page:
Millions of Miles
Nothing Left to Paint
Love Makes a Family
Word from the Wallaces
A Moment Cherished
Polka Dots and Ric Rac
Wheels for Wells: I found this through a friend a week ago. Every 20 seconds a child dies from lack of clean water, this is tragic. There are different ways to get involved and if you are on the East Coast and have a bike, consider riding with them.
Divine Chocolate. Who doesn’t like chocolate? Well, here is a great way to help the Farmer’s in Ghana Africa. This is completely fair trade. You can often find this chocolate at a World Market or Whole Foods.
Light Gives Heat: I mentioned the above necklace in a post before, and then yesterday my friend came over carrying that gorgeous bag. Its honestly way more beautiful in person than even in this photo. You can read about their mission to to help the women of Africa here, they have individual profiles listed.
I hope these shops inspire you to do support, buy or donate. Its the little things that we do that can make a world of difference to one person! Well I’m off to finish printing and knitting.

I cannot do everything,
but still I can do something;
and because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do
something I can do.”
