Did you hear what Kimba is doing?

in Giving back

Helloooooo old friends! On the off chance that anyone stops by here, I wanted to tell you what I’ve been up to lately. First, I miss you! I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I accidently quit blogging. I took a week off to get my feet under me and never came back. I miss all of my blogging friends so much.

I started a new business back in November, but I’ve been really slow to tell my blogging buddies about it because I wanted to make sure it would actually work

Now I know that the business model is working (really well) and we’re doing something so cool that I don’t want to hide it anymore. Can I give you a quick intro to the business and then tell you the cool thing that we’re doing? (It relates to Compassion International.)

The business is called Everyday Icing . We sell fashion jewelry directly on Facebook. Yes, Facebook. We have super sweet accessories at at super sweet prices. We fully realize that it’s an unusual business model, but it’s working. Direct sales on Facebook is a fairly new thing, but it’s a fun way to combine social media and shopping! Two of my favorite things!

Our sales are every Monday at 9pm (eastern) on our facebook page and some weeks we have have special themed sales on Thursday…things like Scarf-A-Palooza and Nautical Night.

We offer around 30 different items for a fixed price (usually between $12-$20) and shipping is always free. We post pictures of the items we have that week along with a desciption, price and the quantity that we have. There are limited quantities of each item and when they’re gone, they’re gone.


Shopping with us is as easy as 1-2-3!
  1. You “like” our facebook page.
  2. Comment “sold” with your email address on any sweet treat that you can’t resist. If you’d rather keep your email private, click on the “Register Here” tab to enter your email address. Then just comment “Sold”.
  3. We invoice through paypal and once you’ve paid, we ship. So easy!

There’s a tab on our facebook page called “How to Bid” and it explains exactly  how shopping on facebook works.

Compassion Bracelet March
Now here’s the cool part…We always give 10% of our profits directly to Compassion International. Their work is important to us and we know it’s important to you. But we want to do more. Today and tomorrow, we are going to offer one very special piece that we’re calling our Compassion Bracelet. 100% of the proceeds from that bracelet will benefit Compassion. We’re hoping to raise at least $1,000 through sales of that piece on Thursday and Friday.


We would be so grateful if you would check out Everyday Icing and share this special sale in any way…on your blog, on twitter, on facebook. We are praying that this is successful so that we can make it a regular thing.


Much love,
Kimba

Hello, dear friends. Yes. I’m still alive. Nothing terrible has happened in my life. This post would actually be easier if there had been some monumental happening that pulled me away. Perhaps if I’d been abducted by a roving band of gypsies (no offense to the gypsies)? Yeah. That would be a good explanation.

I’ve lost count of the number I’ve times that I’ve tried to write over the last few months. Each time, the words haven’t come. Not. A. Single. Word. Trust me. I’ve tried.

I’ve cried about. And I’ve worried. Agonized really. And I’ve walked away. If you’ve sent me an email and I didn’t answer you, I’m sorry. My inbox overflowed and I gave up.

I’m slowly accepting that God is doing a refining work on me and I need to be patient.

In the meantime, I had to share the Promises of God that I read on chiselseason.com this morning. If you ever struggle to accept who you really are in Christ…or the blessings that are ours in Christ…then you need to read this. The (grateful) tears were flowing by the time I finished reading.

Love to you all.

The Procrastinators Guide to Meaningful Thanksgiving Traditions

November 16, 2011

I love Thanksgiving. I love the food, the family and the reminder to stop and be thankful for all of my life. For the last couple of years, our family has done a Thankful Tree as a reminder to be purposefully thankful during the month leading up to Thanksgiving. But this year, life got in [...]

Nothing to See Here

October 25, 2011

But there’s something worth seeing here. Do you have a fake family? I do. It’s the one I made up in my head and it gives my real family an impossibly high standard to reach. My fake family never fights during game night, they sweetly try a few bites of everything on their plates, and [...]

Spider Web String Art: Halloween Mantel

October 17, 2011

I don’t do a whole lot of Halloween decorating. Not because I don’t like the holiday (I love it!), but mostly because it usually sneaks up on me and I’m not prepared. Shall I show you my boys store-bought costumes as proof? But my boys are of the age where a little bit of spooky [...]

The Longboard Girls

October 12, 2011

Some days I can barely put one foot in front of the other without falling on my face. On those days, The Longboard Girls inspire me all the more. Just watching them makes me want to get up and move. These lovely girls know how to go fast. The mom in me wants to say [...]
