Party Prepartions and a sneak peek!

We are in full force party planning mode around here.
And it's fun.
Exhausting, but exciting.
We cannot wait to see what the night holds for everyone involved.
Other than great music, yummy food, warm drinks and fabulous conversations, we are having a silent auction.
Just thought I'd give you a sneak peek at some of the items we will be auctioning off.
Really, you do not want to miss this event!
People have been above and beyond generous. It's humbling.
My parents are auctioning off a week's stay at their home in Venice, Florida.
It's beautiful and comfortable and has a pool and hot tub. You never have to leave the house!

The following bracelet was crafted by Kim Burdakin.
She donated a couple items that will be auctioned off, but I found this one to be exceptionally beautiful!

And these two items were donated by Muscatine Medical Surgical Associates.
6 sessions of micro-dermabrasion and an Obagi-C Rx system. Both items retail value is over $600!
I have no idea what they are, but I am most certain that I would benefit from them! :)

And this amazing necklace was crafted by JoAnn Allbee.
It is made with African trade beads that have a very cool story behind them.
JoAnn was also gracious enough to donate a couple items and she definitely has a heart for Africa.

And one of my favorites it this beautiful photo taken by Taylor Sprague last year in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Framing was donated by River's Edge Gallery.
I LOVE it...
My sister is donating a Clarins skin care package valued at over $900 as well.
These are just a few of our items.
We are so very excited...
and nervous...
and anxious...
and scared.
We have spent hours upon hours preparing for this and we can't wait to see it unfold.
If you are in the area, you won't want to miss out!
