We are looking forward to Praise in the Park, in Blaine's hometown of Lucedale, Mississippi, this weekend where we'll be sharing our adoption story with fellow believers. Praise in the Park is a Christian festival that is hosted every fall in Lucedale's city park. We will be among approximately 40 vendors and 12,000 people who are gathering together to enjoy a day of food, fun, and Christian fellowship. Jeremy Camp, Building 429, Leeland, and Royal Tailor will be performing this year.
I spent the day getting ready for PITP. Here are a few photos of my preparations! :)
Instead of a coke sign, I used an old piece of wood to create the sign for our booth.
First, I used a dry brush technique to give the board a white wash.
Then, I added a few other colors, sanded it, and wiped on a light stain.
The finished product!
These 2 pieces will be used as our "billboards" to advertise our wristbands and t-shirt give away.
I gave them the same treatment as the "Adopt Colombia" sign. I didn't have time to paint the ads on them, that will be tomorrow's work!
We will be giving away glow-in-the-dark wristbands as a "Thank You" for donations we receive.
We hope to meet a lot of people and raise awareness of the orphan crisis around the world. We are excited to see what God is going to do this weekend!!!
