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!

To the man who raised our son - In Memory of Pastor Dan

If all of us can only understand what compassion and grace truly mean,  this world might be a better place.  ~Pastor Dan Montenegro
There is a person I have dreamed of seeing again. I imagine our Tope, ten years older, as a young man, going back to where he was raised the first five years of his life. The walls of his orphanage would take shape and memories would form for Tope, memories that he would both share and keep to himself. We would share our memories too. Memories of when the gate opened and we first saw his face. Memories of the children that surrounded us, watching as he met his Mom & Dad for the first time. Memories of the caretakers that had spent so much time and love on our little boy. And then we would not just see the building, the new children living here, the memories of past and present, but we would see Pastor Dan standing there, standing proud and grinning as he would hold out his arms to embrace our son. 
This man.  He is kind, gentle, humble. He is a servant …

A feminine touch

How often do you think God looks down upon us and laughs at the things we think and say? I have to think, if I were God, I would be having a good chuckle at least every other hour just listening to my thoughts alone!

Here was His chuckle...

Mara: "I think we are destined for all boys in this house. The craziness of these boys! oy! This is my life."

God: "Lol! Haven't you heard that Everyone agrees that girls are much harder than boys!?!"

Mara: "For certain the only "cute" clothes I will buy will include a collar and buttons."

God: "Hehehe! You do realize that girls don't just need a pair of tennis shoes for the winter and sandals for the summer, right!? They need dress shoes, sandals, tennis shoes, cute boots, real boots, shiny shoes, easter shoes, christmas shoes...."

Mara: "It would be fun to have another female in this house. These boys could use more feminine presence. They are much less crazy. "

God: "You as…

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…
