Moving To Scotland

St. Mongo   London, ON
Almost 3 years ago, my husband, Jon and I had the opportunity to go to Edinburgh, Scotland. It was a dream come true and was the first place that ever truly felt like home. We resolved to save up, and move there forever as soon as we could. We don't make much, but we've been putting aside every cent we can spare and have plans to sell 90% of everything we own.
Moving to another country is a costly undertaking. This is something we want desperately, but we don't want to put it off any longer, either. We've been saving for this since we returned from our original trip. We are making progress slowly but surely, but a little help from you will make things that much easier, and get us there that much faster. I know it's a big ask, but if you can help us in any way, we would be forever grateful.
As an artist, I'm offering some of my original work at certain reward levels.  For an idea of my style, and what you might get if you're awesome enough to help us out, check out my website;

Hi everyone. It's been quite a while since I've posted. There isn't much to update you on...we're in a place of waiting now. Our first attempt to move to Scotland is behind us, and now we simply wait for the next one. Within 2 years, we will try again. So for now, we just work hard, save up and plan better. That means it's time to shut this fundraiser down. Thank you to everyone who supported us, either through words or donations. It meant so, so much.

Hi peoples! So, today I have finally finished all the rewards and sent them off! (Except for you, Calum....check your email, please!) I know most of you have had to wait a ridiculous amount of time, but please know I never forgot about any of you for a single second. So, do you wanna see what will be showing up in your mailboxes soon? Huh, do ya? Yeah, you do.
We're still getting several visitors daily, so if you're new here and you like what you see, it's absolutely not too late to donate. You'll be supporting a dream, which will make you a super-excellent person, and may end up with valuable* artwork at a bargain price!

*Value of art is sure to go up once I die either a firery or hilarious death. Cha-ching!

So it's New Year's Day. 2014 is finally behind us. Sure, there were some things about the year that were great, but the last 6 months of it were shit. Utter shit. We've never cried so much or for so long in our lives. The stress, the fear, and the ultimate heartbreak is nothing I would wish upon anyone. It's unlikely we will make it back to Scotland this year, (and I'm okay with that for the moment considering the passing of our beloved pets is part of what has to happen) but I'm hoping that this will be the year for us to settle for a bit, catch up financially and have a little joy.
As always, thank you to everyone who has helped us out so far. I'm still working on the rewards, but they will be in the mail this month. Please let me know if you've moved! Pass our story around, and don't be afraid to tell your own! Help can come from the strangest places. Happy 2015, kids. Let's hope this year is better for us all.

It's 12:39am on Xmas morning and our first gift is another generous donation! Spread the word, and help if you like. Remember, you can do it through here or by buying one of my photos in my Etsy shop. All the proceeds from there will go into savings to get us back to our real home. https://www.etsy.com/shop/DelicacyAndDecay
Happy Xmas, we hope everyone is where they want to be right now, are loved, safe and happy. :)
