wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

get involved! you can do it!!! come on!!!

A few more days to get involved.  If you'd like to see some of my newest merchandise, head over to

short post--

after living through and continuing on in the circumstance we've been dealt with Ridge, we have definitely experienced grace and generosity.  and we have said we will never be the same because of it.  when a need arises, we figured we'd be ready to meet that need in whatever way we were capable of, bc it has meant so much and will continue to mean so much that you have met our needs and continue to do so.  i don't want to share too much bc this blog does get some traffic and i want to leave a little bit of a surprise element to this, but i do want my readers to know there is a family, who we do not know, but who is in desperate need of finances and a miracle.  i will share what i know about them in a week or so.  but here is what we are going to do. bdawg and i both feel deeply that we need to help.  because i have quit my job and because we rely on the help and support of our friends, family, community, and perfect strangers, we don't have a lot of resources to financially help this family we are burdened for.  so here's what we have pledged to do.  i hope and pray God blows our minds with the response.  we ARE going to do something for this family. i DO want it to be a surprise, so i am asking for some faith from you readers that this is something GREAT.  your heart will break at this story and you will be challenged by this family's faith.  so here's the deal-- everything i sell between 5/23 (today) and 6/1 (a week away, or a little over a week)-- all proceeds, every bit of profit, will go to this family.  so if you are wanting some jewelry, baby items, customized signs, whatever, check out my facebook page, "Seesaw ridge productions", send me a message and let me know what you want.  i'm talking custom orders, so you will have to wait awhile to receive whatever you buy.  but i will invoice you, let you pay, get the profits totaled, reveal the story of this family, then get to work on getting your items shipped to you.  if you would rather just donate, that's fine too.  i'll send ya a free pair of earrings if that's the route you choose to take.  email me if you don't have a facebook account--  
if you send me an email, i can get you our mailing address so you can send in your payment or donation.  i can also invoice you via paypal if you prefer to donate/pay that way.

i promise, this story will break your heart, and you definitely want to be a part of this. i can speak from personal experience-- if you can donate $5 or $10 or $500 or whatever, EVERY penny counts.  here's how i think about it-- if someone gives $5 to us, that pays for one day's worth of Ridge's prevacid, which he takes EVERY single day.  Every little bit REALLY does count, so please know, there is no amount too small.

So here ya go, folks.  a week, or 8 days, to get your GIVE on.  let's see what we've got!    be a blessing.
