I AM SO, SO EXCITED TO FINALLY TELL Y'ALL ABOUT THE MOST AMAZING WOMAN.....Tracy from Junk Posse (the name of her incredible jewelry line)!!!! Tracy has the most amazing heart. In her own is why she does what she does:

"My name "Junk Posse" comes from the items I love to collect, create, and restore(the junk) and the amazing people, friends, and family who inspire me (my posse)-My husband, who always encourages me to be who I am and continue to learn what I love, my mom who is an artist and never said no when I wanted to sew, cook, or create something, and last but not least, the estyians, who on a daily basis blow me away with their talents."

About one month ago I found Tracy's Etsy site on another fellow blogger's site. I fell in love with her Heart for Africa necklace. She started creating necklaces to help raise money for her daughter and son-in-laws African adoption!! So, I called to see if she could create a Guatemalan necklace. NOT ONLY DID SHE SAY "YES", SHE TOLD ME SHE WANTED TO CREATE AN ENTIRE LINE OF GUATEMALAN GEMS.....AND IT WOULD BE A FUNDRAISER FOR CHRIS AND ME!!!!! WHAT???????? SHE IS AMAZING!!!!!! Literally, I was blown away. She told me that the Lord had put us on her heart.

So, without further ado (the descriptions are in her own words).....

I created this necklace in honor of all the Women that have Guatemalan Children in their Hearts. This fine silver pendant hangs uniquely From a Beautiful 18 inch Sterling Silver chain & clasp. I have added a cubic zirconia gem in the center of the Flower.

I created this Pendant from fine silver to support and celebrate Guatemalan children and the Families who Love them.
A simple Map of Guatemala sits upon spanish text that says
A Child is a special Blessing. I also added a small Heart!

This Pendant of fine silver I created to celebrate the Children of Guatemala and the People that Love them. A simple Map of Guatemala sits upon a detailed background of spanish text that says "A Child is a special Blessing"
The pendant has been hand finished with a patina to show the details.

This Unique Pendant I made by hand from fine silver with a special message "Expecting from Guatemala" is a Wonderful reminder of the Sweet Blessing to come.

This unique Pendant that says "My Guatemalan Girl" hangs from a dainty 20 inch sterling Silver ball chain. I added a small Girl Pendant that has a tiny Heart on her chest.

This unique Pendant that says "My Guatemalan Guy" hangs from a dainty 20 inch sterling Silver ball chain. I added a small Guy Pendant that has a tiny Heart on his chest.

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!! FEEL FREE TO PUT A LINK ON YOUR SITE!!! She has amazing necklaces....Africa, China, Guatemala....and many others!!! Have fun shopping!!! They would make AMAZING VALENTINE'S PRESENTS!!!!! That is definitely what I want for Valentine's!!!

I love you all.....I can't wait to see what you think!

Kristy said...

Okay, time for me to "de-lurk". I can't even remember how I stumbled onto your blog, but I have been reading for a while and praying for you guys even though you didn't know it. And actually, I went to OBU with Chris -- I think I graduated a few years ahead of him probably, and I don't think we really knew each other, but just in case, it's Valerie (Norman), and I was the little blonde piano player (for OBU Chorale and a lot of stuff on campus), which is how most people might have known me. Anyway, long story short, I have a beautiful son, Henry, who came home in March 2006 from Guatemala after a crazy-long and difficult process, so I definitely know where you are coming from. Tonight, I read your blog entry, checked out the etsy store, and HELLO! She created just what I've been wanting since Henry came home, so I bought myself an early V-Day gift from my hubby and Henry (haha), perfect timing also since the first day I physically met Henry was the day before V-Day in 2006, so it's our little anniversary as well. Anyway, I bought the awesome "I would go to the ends of the earth for you" pendant in Spanish and hopefully Tracy is going to put Henry's name on the back.

Sorry for such a long comment, but I figured you might get a kick out of it anyways. Email me and I will send you pics of my adorable little faux-hawk sportin' man, Henry...:)

Bekah said...

WOW! Those are INCREDIBLE! And how amazing of her to support you guys with some of the sales...that's really awesome. I usually just get a card for Valentine's Day but Drew's a softy so I'm sure it won't take much hinting to get a necklace this year. :)

Christina said...

I love them. Neat gifts for me and his big sisters.

Jess said...

This is SO incredible!!

When we got Jadon's referral a friend of mine gave me a small pendant that said "baby" and I wore it to feel like I was expecting. Then later, my mom bought me a locket with Jadon's picture in it. I wore the locket everyday until Jadon came home!!

This is a FANTASTIC idea for anyone expecting from Guatemala! Or anyone with Guatemala on their hearts!

emily said...

I saw those on her site the other day! I love them. I wear my Africa necklace everyday and it makes me feel close to my babies:)

I love Tracy. We have spoken several times on the phone and each time she has blessed me. I am so thankful that the Lord led her to help you and Chris.
