    Free session anyone??

    So, by now you have heard about the 2010 the World Should Know Calendar and read my shameless promotion to sell 2010 Calendars … after

    Angela Miller: Hi Crystal, I had a friend who did pictures with you this summer and periodically look back at your site. I love your work and think the calendars are great! I ordered mine just today...I know it's last minute, but hopefully I didn't miss the drawing. :) (Jan 28, 2010 at 12:09 pm)
    Lisa: Hey Crystal- You already know how much I love the calendars:) but let me say again how absolutely gorgeous the kids are and how beautifully you've captured their souls. I'll also tell you again - you've been given an amazing gift! I so appreciate that you use your gift to bring God glory and to bless these precious ones. May you be blessed for your many acts of love and kindness toward the "least of these" whom we are called to serve. When I give away a calendar, I'm always excited to tell friends and family about Revive Africa and about your awesome talent! Looking fwd to the next one:) (Jan 12, 2010 at 17:57 pm)
    gayla: Hi Crystal- Darla told me about the drawing...just ordered a few calendars! Thanks Gayla (Jan 07, 2010 at 17:49 pm)
    Darla Dickey: I ordered my 10 today! Thanks, Darla (Jan 05, 2010 at 17:22 pm)
    Jenny: Crystal! This is so very exciting!! I cannot wait to display the calendar in my classroom! I am so proud of you and will get the biggest kick out of telling my students the stories you shared with me about these children. : ) (Jan 02, 2010 at 10:06 am)
    Darla Dickey: Is there an easy way to buy more than 2 at a time? If so, please email me! (Dec 31, 2009 at 11:50 am)
    Darla Dickey: Crystal, so excited to see your calendar! Theo works with many African clients seeking political asylum. I can't wait to give him some of these for his office! (Dec 31, 2009 at 11:48 am)
    Kathy Earhart: Thanks Crystal, I can't wait to see the calendar! I'm so excited, I'm sure it's awesome! Sorry I didn't make it by to pick it up, I guess just mail it out, b/c I probably won't be back that way for awhile. Thanks, Kathy (Dec 30, 2009 at 22:43 pm)
    Mickie Jobe: Thanks Crystal, I hope I win too, although you would love photographing Jessica and her adorable miniature chihuahua, Chewy. Jessica and I have matching chihuahuas!!! haha! You and Rachel are doing a fantastic job, keep up the good work! (Dec 30, 2009 at 15:53 pm)
    Crystal: Great Mickie! I hope you win :) Thanks for spreading the LOVE and for your awesome support of Rachel and I and the orphans in Africa!! (Dec 30, 2009 at 15:50 pm)
    Mickie Jobe: Maybe this time the link will work? Mickie Jobe (Dec 30, 2009 at 15:42 pm)
    Mickie Jobe: Hi, Crystal! I purchased a calendar and posted the link to Facebook before there was a contest, and my friend Jessica Jernigan bought a calendar after reading my Facebook post. Here is the link, hope it works! http://www.facebook.com/mickie.jobe?v=feed&story_fbid=186639208691&ref=mf So I get two chances and Jessica gets one, right? Great idea!
