For Adam’s birthday this year, he got towed. But you can read about that here. This post is about the cupcakes I made to celebrate his 31 years. It’s short. But sweet. ;) His favorite candy is Butterfinger, so I … Continue reading

Footprints in the Sand

We lived in the desert for the first 3 years of our married life. Extreme heat, dirt everywhere in all of your windowsills and crevices, the sun beating down mercilessly day after day–but we loved it. We had to love … Continue reading

What’s Your Isaac?

We all have at least one. An Isaac. Something we hold onto so tightly that we might be willing to turn our backs on God if following Him meant losing it. Never mind that God is the one who gave … Continue reading

Kite Party for Lily

Our amazing daughter turned 8 last week. Wow, 8 seems so old. We had a kite party. I needed a special picture to use for decorating the party wall, so I dressed her up and told her to jump on the … Continue reading

Mission: 60 Dresses

After poring over sheets of pencilled information that was faxed from Honduras to a church in TN then faxed to me, I have the final count.20140406-153656.jpg

There are APPROXIMATELY (this fluctuates) 48 girls and young ladies currently at the mission, between the ages of 1 and 26. That is as of September ’13. I believe they have added a couple and a few have also left, so…give or take. This includes the missionary ladies as well as the young ladies who have stayed on as teachers or helpers after graduating.

It is impossible for me (at this time) to get an exact chart of ages and sizes. One of the first things I plan on doing when we reach the field is sit down with each child and get their ages, birthdays, sizes and favorite things recorded and filed! I know they have done their best with the limited personnel and resources they have. Hopefully, we’ll be able to be a blessing in that area.

With this number in mind and considering the fact that I had to kind of guess on some a lot of the info, I’m going with a goal of 60 dresses or skirts. This gives us a little wiggle worm with the sizing, and makes sure that everyone gets a new item of pretty clothing. These must be new, but can be handmade or store-bought, whichever you prefer.

A few dresses and skirts have already come in, yay!

Here’s what we still need:

Toddler Sizes

 2-3T —(4 items) (Update: this size is accounted for! If you have already started or purchased this size, that’s great, there is no such thing as too many!)

4-5T —(4 items) (Update: This size is accounted for! If you have already started or purchased this size, that’s great, there is no such thing as too many!.)

6x     (4 items) (Update: 3 of these items are accounted for!)

Child Sizes 

 7     (5 items)(Update: 2 of these are accounted for!)

 8 —     (7 items)(Update: 3 of these are accounted for!)

 9 —     (2 items)(Update: This size is accounted for!)

 10—    (11 items) (Update: 1 of these is accounted for!)

 12 —  (5 items) Update: 2 of these items are accounted for!)

Junior Sizes

Small (4 items)

Med   (3 items) (Update: 1 of these is accounted for!)

XL      (1 items)

Misses Sizes

Small — (3 items)

Med —   (2 items) (Update: 1 of these is accounted for!)

Large — (2 items)

I will update this list in a new post as items are signed up for and as they come in.

Deadline to have these in is June 1st! :)

If you are interested in adding sprinkles to the lives of orphaned girls in Honduras, contact me ASAP to be part of the New Dress Drive. You can contact me through here, or through the Coffee With Sprinkles Facebook page.

Thank you everyone and have a wonderful week!

 

 

 

We Have Sizes! (basically…)

Alright, ladies! We have a list of ages and sizes of the girls at Hogar de Amor for those of you who have been shopping or sewing! It is 14 pages and looks like this! Eeek! 20140403-154034.jpg

It took someone a lot of precious time to make and fax this list, for that I am very grateful!

I need to decipher it a bit, but will have a size list for you ASAP. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, see my previous post about the New Dress Drive we are doing for the orphan girls at Hogar de Amor Children’s Home Honduras.

While you’re waiting for the list, would you like to meet some of the beautiful girls you are sewing or shopping for? Sarah Jones is an American young lady who lives at the home and takes care of many of them. She recently posted lots of photos on her blog, El Mayor Amor. Head over and take a look! hogaramorgirls

 As you think about these girls, please pray for them! Pray for their safety and health. Pray that they will learn to love the Lord, and grow up to serve Him. And pray that we can get there soon. Thank you!

In my last post, I touched on the subject of sprinkles–those little extras that make life sweeter. Extras like a little girl receiving a brand new dress just for her instead of a hand-me down. Hand-me downs are wonderful and … Continue reading
