Owie Owl Fundraiser

The time has come to start our First Fundraiser - OWIE OWLS!

I have currently started on a few quilts and baby blankets, but in the meantime I wanted to get at least one fundraiser officially started. I will be blessed with two full sewing days at the end of this week, so I will have ample time to make as many Owie Owls as needed!!!

What is an Owie Owl?
* These very cute (in my opinion) owls that are meant to help soothe any "owies" your family might have. Owls are made from cotton fabrics and are filled with rice.
* Owls can be kept in the freezer and taken out to soothe scrapes and bruises. They are perfect for little ones, as they are not too cold, and the fun design is quite comforting. Caleb loves his! It is our go to item if Mom or Dad's kiss can't solve the problem alone.  :)
* Owls can also be put into the microwave and heated for 30 seconds, making a warm and comforting heating pad, great for growing pains and tummy aches.
* Don't be fooled - Owie Owls are great for "grown-ups" too!!! This Mom uses our Owie Owl frequently!
* There are endless color combinations for Owie Owls. I enjoy creating different ones, but would be happy to take suggestions, especially if your child has favorite colors.

What is the fundraiser cost?
The Owie Owls are being sold for $15.00, hand-delivered.
Please add $2.00 (per owl) if you would like your owl to be mailed.
Please comment below with your order, or send an email to
Include your NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS or PHONE NUMBER, ADDRESS (if applicable) and any COLOR PREFERENCES you may have.
Checks can be payable to Mara Schack (we will email you our address), this method is preferred as it will save us a small transaction fee.
However, we know how much easier it is to use a credit card!!! So, the "buy now" button below will take you to our Pay Pal account. If you go to Pay Pal directly, you can also type in our email address,, and gift the money to our account (especially if you're getting more than one owl), this will also keep us from getting a transaction fee.  Hope this all makes sense!!! This is all new to me, so I'll do my best! Don't hesitate to email me with questions!

Please held spread the word!!!
The more Owie Owls in my sewing room - the merrier!
Thanks, everyone!

6 Months as Foster Parents

So the title may have had wittier moments in my head, but in all reality, it is full and honest truth. Six months as Foster Parents. I would like to know where the last half of a year went...

This summer was quite the season.  Although it is supposed to be a season of warmth, relaxation, and vacations, we were in a Winter. A really long, brutal, stormy winter, where you hunker down in your house and wonder when the storm will pass. On the sunny days of this winter, we basked in the light and enjoyed the 30 degree temps. On the cloudy, sub-below temp kind of days - well, we made it through to the next day.

To say I have learned more in the last six months than just about any other six months in my life, would be a completely accurate statement. The learning curve my husband and I have been on has been huge. There are days we scored a perfect 10. And there have been many more days where we have scored a 2, if being gracious in the scoring.

Trauma is - well I have words for it, but since…

What's the buzz?

With Easter just passed, I was realizing that I never listened to Jesus Christ Superstar - one of my favorite past times during Lent, as the music has always led me to think about Christ and how he related with his family and friends in those last moments before his death. Plus, I'm a sucker for any music from a musical. Imagine that!? So - What's the buzz? Tell me what's happenin'....

This year I missed the Superstar boat though with little downtime at home; however, I did find myself listening to Godspell one day as I organized my bedroom and was reminded of one of my favorite songs and its' lyrics....
All good gifts around us Are sent from heaven above So thank the Lord, oh thank the Lord For all His love I really want to thank you Lord!

All good gifts - my life is filled with so many. God is blessing us richly with a life that is full of truth, love, and spirit. Along with these blessings comes a multitude of new knowledge, some easy to grasp and hold onto, and some…

Until we meet again: A Fostercare Goodbye

For baby girl and big boy A -

Here is the time I must say goodbye to you, my sweet, sweet children. For almost four months, you have been a part of our family, a part of our daily life, and a big part of my heart.

Please know I do not see this as a forever goodbye, for I know I will see you again. It may be next month, catching up at the park. It could be next fall, waving in the hallway at school. Maybe we will see you at your next birthday party, and I can see how tall you've grown. Or perhaps we will attend your graduation, and congratulate you on the fine young adult that you are. And in the card I write you, I'll remind you of the the four months we had together, and how you still have a part of my heart.

Although maybe the next time I see you, time will have passed by many, many years. I will be at the store or I'll be walking down the street and I'll think-what a beautiful and confident young woman that is, or what a handsome and kind young man he is. You won…
