Win A $500 Gift Certificate!

As many of you may remember, last year I did a similar raffle because my husband and I were raising money for the Canadian Diabetes Association so we could go to Iceland in August of 2015. What you don't know is that we didn't make it on that trip last year. Almost a year this April my mom, who was going to watch our children for us while we were away, was diagnosed with terminal cancer. At that time we decided it would be best to postpone the trip for a number of obvious reasons. The "unknown" being a big one. We had been well on our way with the fundraising but luckily Team Diabetes allows you to save the money you've raised and transfer it to another race at a different time when the circumstances are as ours were.

I'm happy to say that my mom is still with us and continues to fight her battle every day. (Insert #cancersucks hashtag here.) Postponing the trip has allowed us to get all our ducks in a row so to speak and now we're gearing up to try again this August! My sister will be coming to watch our kids and Iceland bound we shall be! But we still have money to raise!

We have a few fundraising events planned but this raffle was so successful last year I thought I'd give it a go again. So what is it exactly? What can you win? Only $500 of the best handmade, custom items out there of course!

Here's how it works:

Here in Alberta we've had a very mild, not-typical winter and it's felt like spring for all of February. Blue skies, warmer weather and sunshine inspired these new signs I created today! Measuring 21" x 12" and done in a rustic, barnboard style they're the perfect addition to brighten any room! I currently have these two in stock in my Etsy shop (where I put all the in stock stuff by the way!) so hurry over and grab one up!
Custom orders are always welcome as well!
I hope you're having a HAPPY day too!
