A week full of giveaways from Etsy sellers!I never knew how many folks started an Etsy store to raise money for an adoption until this year’s Etsy giveaways.  I’m amazed at how creative folks are, and my eyes have truly been opened as to the cost of adoption in general.  “For This Child” is a store started by Bethany to bring home her child through international adoption.  She decided to use her talent for painting as a tool to raise the money for her child.

for this child

Bethany can customize any watercolor painting for what you’re looking for.  She can do any state, country, animal, lake and  she can even do custom wedding gown paintings.  This will truly be a unique gift from the heart and your purchase is going to a good cause.  She sent me a water color of South Carolina.  It was beautiful and I love that it came matted and ready to be displayed.

The animals would be a great addition to a nursery and the state/country/ lake paintings would be beautiful in a living room.
