A Compelling {Giveaway}


Congrats to random commenters #287 Kimberly, you won the $25 certificate and  #66 Krista, you won the fundraising giveaway! 

Last September I attended Together for Adoption on behalf of Mercy House. I set up a booth with the help of a couple of friends and we told the story over and over again.

One of the best things that came from the trip was meeting Rebekah from Compelled Designs. The minute I saw her gorgeous pottery jewelry, I knew she was a gifted artisan.

Not only are she and her husband talented, they have a huge heart for adoption, missions and the world.

You might remember this gorgeous cross she created and we sold to help pay for Violet’s surgery in November 2012? Rebekah made it.


She also created the Mother’s Day jewelry we had a hard time keeping in stock.


Her company is called Compelled Designs. Not only are her designs compelling, she and her family are compelled to help others raise money. Check out her beautiful jewelry here.

I was amazed at the conference watching her talk to adoptive families. Adoption is expensive and many families do fundraisers to help bring their child home. Compelled Designs helps families do that by offering assorted bags of pottery jewelry at a discounted rate to be resold. It’s a creative and successful idea!

Today, Compelled Designs is giving away a $25 gift certificate to a random commenter.


She is also giving away 10 assorted necklaces to an adoptive family to resale ($240 value)! Awesome, huh?

I absolutely love how we can all use our skills to bless others. It creates something beautiful when we do!

To be entered to win the $25 gift certificate, please leave a comment with your favorite piece. To be entered to win the necklace fundraiser set, please leave a comment with where you’re adopting from. This giveaway ends Friday.

    I’m loving alll those pieces-they’res so beautiful. I love me a pendant necklace! Can I have 3 favorite? I love the bird and leaf, the leaf by itself, and the owl. I guess if i had to pick just one…….the bird and leaf. No, the owl. AAAH! I can’t decide.

    Hi – the owl keeps catching my eye, but I really like the circular one with the blue flower that looks like it is resting on white lace. We just brought home a sib group of 5 from Colombia, but if we end up winning the necklaces I have a friend who is adopting a sib group of 4, and we would give them the necklaces to sell for their adoption expenses. :)

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing months of hard work due to no data backup.

    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
    fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m
    not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Thank you

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of
    your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
