Today is the Day!

Today, at 12 p.m. eastern time, the benefit auction to help Baby Sam's family begins! Many people have donated beautiful handmade items for this special cause.

Sam is 5 months old and on April 13, 2010 he was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma. He is now having his second chemotherapy treatment.

As you can imagine, the doctor bills will be a great expense to his family. We want to help out with that! Please check out the Auction for Sam on our Econest Congo! The auction will start May 20th and end May 28th, with new items being added throughout the week.

If you have a handmade item you'd like to donate to the auction, please email me.

Don't miss this great opportunity to make a difference! All proceeds will go directly to help Sam!

A very special stocking.

25% of the net sales from tomorrow's store stocking will be donated to the fund to help baby Sam's family.  Sam is a little five-month old boy who was recently diagnosed with advanced neuroblastoma.  This week, he begins his second round of chemotherapy.  

While you're visiting the congo, please stop for a moment and take a peek at the amazing items up for auction.  The EcoNest Team is hosting a benefit auction, also to benefit Sam and his family.  Many, many wonderful and amazing people have contributed their time, efforts and products to make this event a success. 

Please stop on by at Noon, Eastern when the items go live.  Good fluff, for a good cause!

Name That Color for a Chance to Win!!!

As soon as the feedback is in from my testers and any kinks are worked out, I'll be stocking more interlock covers! I spent some time today dying up swatches for my new interlock covers. I need some help naming the colors so I thought a fun giveaway was in order.

Here are the details:
Submit your names for the colors. You can submit for each color or just one color. (ex: #1=rainy sky, #2=teal to the that was fun randomly typing in names) Be creative! I will pick my favorite for each color and the people who submitted those names will be entered into a drawing.

Three winners will be drawn at random. Here are the prizes: one will win a custom Once Upon a Baby interlock cover, one will win a 6 pack of Once Upon a Baby cotton/velour wipes, and one will win their choice of either med diaper wetbag or kitchen wetbag. Winners will be drawn on 4/16. Open to both US and Canada residents. :)

(btw- to my fabulous testers, your soakers are finished and are shipping tomorrow)
