Celebrating Family

Happy Chinese New Year! 农历新年

It is time to sweep away any ill fortune and make way for double happiness! It is a time to celebrate family: those who have departed, those who we are lucky enough to have with us, and those who we are expecting - a sweet little niece that I know of.

This is Alea, my niece-to-be. 
Carrie, Jacob, and Cora hope to travel to China in March to complete her adoption!

Our little business is focused on family. We are focused on bringing the products of talented artisans to new markets. In this way, we hope that our artisans are able to always meet the needs of their families. We are focused on developing community - a family far away from a homeland - for refugees in our hometown of Midland, Texas. We are focused on adoption through our fundraising kits and our Scarlet Scraps Adoption Grant Fund.

As our own family gears up to grow by one in the next couple of months through adoption, we wanted to take this time to focus on that last part of our mission -- Adoption.  Be watching early next week to meet the recipients of 2013's adoption grants!  We have decided that our adoption grants (funded through the sale of our Scarlet Scraps line) will go to families who have partnered with us through our fundraising program, so if you are an in-process adoptive family interested in receiving our grants, check out the fundraising program.

Proceeds from our newest product - A Glimpse of China Notecards ($20) - will go to our Adoption Grant Fund as do all purchases from the Scarlet Scraps product line! Please visit our site to make a purchase.  Featuring the stunning photography of Amber Parker, this collection of ten notecards include unique shots of Chinese life.  Amber generously donated printing rights to these photographs, so all the proceeds from the sale of these cards goes to our Adoption Grant fund.  Contact Amber directly to learn more about her work or to inquire about purchasing larger prints!
