some links this week worth a visit:
♥ operation christmas shoebox, samaritans purse.
nicholas and i did this a couple years ago, but this is a great ministry that collects shoeboxes filled with gifts you put together and delivers them all over the world. you choose if you are buying for boy or girl and their age range. all the information is on this handy pdf and you can drop it off to a drop off location (national collection week is this week!) or just mail it. do 1 or do 5, it's not a lot and a great way to give back. we're doing ours tonight!
♥ clumsy best man knocks bride into pool, break.com.
honestly i know this is really sad but i literally gasped when i saw it and it's a little bit funny.... i mean, it is such a crazy unreal moment!
these ladies are doing a scarf swap at their blog! sign up at either. ok, so i love scarves. no question i'm totally in.
♥ one a day - pendant giveaway, the crafty wren.
wrenay is giving away one pendant a day, for a month. check out her blog for details!
& some local links: if you're in the southern california area, check these out!
♥ winter warehouse sales, warehouse sale 411.
usually they hold these every winter + summer. there's a couple good ones coming up.
♥ cnn heroes with alicia keys + john legend, 1iota.com
ok, seriously, what is better than going to a free filming with a performance by alicia keys and john legend? um, nothing! so i signed up at this site a while ago and i got free tickets to see the carson daily show with regina spektor as the muscial guest. it was amazing. carson wasn't. but regina was! anyway, i got an email that they're doing a cnn heroes taping with alicia + john, and they need seat fillers, this saturday. i think these are really talented artists. even if you don't like them, you really can't go wrong.
