Made for Freedom {A Giveaway!}

So... remember that time where I only blogged once in October, felt bad about it, vowed to blog a lot more in November, then only blogged 3 times?


So Hey December! :D

I'm super excited for the Christmas season.

However, the purpose of this blog post isn't exactly about Christmas.

The purpose of this blog post is to introduce something that's two months old, super fun & exciting, and somehow hasn't made it onto the blog yet [probably cuz I was too busy knitting]

You see, back in October, I launched Freedom Creations.

If you're connected to me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you already know about this, but somehow it pretty much dodged the blog for a good two months.

And I figured, what better time than The Most Wonderful Time of the Year to make this thing "blog-official" [Is that a thing?] and celebrate with a giveaway? :)

So here it goes...

Introducing Freedom Creations!
A social enterprise that sells handmade accessories with 100% of the profit going to International Justice Mission.

Freedom Creations was birthed from a passion for social justice, a want to do something to help end modern-day slavery and a love for knitting and creating.

I so believe that each and every one of us was created with a purpose and made for freedom. 

International Justice Mission shares that belief, and their staff works tirelessly to bring rescue to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression in response to the Bible's call to "seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow." (Isaiah 1:17)

You can check out the Freedom Creations Facebook page to get connected, learn more, browse and buy products, or make a custom order, and follow us on Twitter [@Created4Freedom] for more updates. :)

I have honestly been overwhelmed by all the support and response this has been getting. Really - Only by His grace.

There are a bunch of hats [made by my auntie Jayne!] and a couple of ear warmer headbands up on the store right now, which would make great Christmas presents! :)

Now for the Giveaway!
Here's what's up for grabs:

Stay stylish, wear your hair up, and keep your ears warm at the same time. #win [Great with your hair down too.]
