These are just a few cards I have donated to the Take Heart store in downtown Lakeland. I was hoping to get some folks to volunteer to make some for the store during my move. We plan to visit the grands more often by staying portable and bouncing between Alabaster, AL and Moscow, Idaho!
Take Heart is a non profit helping widows and aged out orphans to attend school in Kenya. They just opened a store downtown Lakeland selling fair trade items. Marvelous inventory and something for everyone!
The above is amazing artwork made from barrels. My favorite is the Amazing Grace sign.
There is a story behind this cross. You'll have to visit the store and ask about it....
The above photo is a picture of my sister, Michelle. She quit her job as an assistant principal to help her friend, Delta Ryan that began this journey.
We hope you stop by and learn about the mission to help others. Everyone can do something! I make cards, volunteer, paint on books, and donate time, $, and talent. The LORD has blessed the store and it's so much easier than garage sales! We appreciate your business.....buy with a purpose.
Come by and visit when you get a chance. First Fridays are popular but you can come Tuesday-Saturday 10:00-5:00 I think are the hours.......Thanks for stopping by!
