Incredible Handmade One of A Kind Journal


Now available as a SILENT AUCTION item on this blog only!! This journal is amazing. It was donated by a friend here at IHOP, Janet Asbury. The proceeds from this auction will go to our adoption fund. The highest bidder wins, so let the fun begin. Rules below!








1. DO NOT post your bid as a comment. Though you may post comment or questions on the journal.

2. Email your bid to me at No starting bid (you all get the ball rolling!)

3. I will post comments keeping everyone updated on the bidding progress. (Your bid will be anonymous).

4. Keep checking back for the high bid amount so that if you are outbid, you can still bid again.

BIDDING WILL CLOSE ON DECEMBER 15th, so that if the bidder is out of town, I can ship it in time for them to use it as a Christmas gift if they choose!

The highest bidder will be notified on December 16th, and payment is expected immediately on the 16th, via paypal or check. Contact me for details.



Two new artists have stepped up to join us in helping to bring Aiden home with their artwork.

Our dear friend Aaron James has donated some of his photography! Here are just a few samples, more of his work is on our Etsy Website.

Another artist Dorean Beattie from my home state of Pennsylvania also contacted me to donate some of her photography to help bring our son home. I was incredibly encouraged by her email and by her heart to help with adoption. Here are some samples of Dorean’s work, much more is on our Etsy site.
