Fundraiser Update

I want to thank everyone for spreading the word and buying up all the charity items! We have raised $150 for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence! I feel like this was a great mark to reach considering I was sick for 3 weeks of the fundraiser! I have decided to extend the charity a little further on my website. I will still have items available and will end the fundraiser on August 28th when I will be running a 5K that benefits domestic violence charities. I am truly touched by everyone's contributions. Many have shared their personal stories with me and it was made more clear than ever that there are many people out their that need help! Thank you so much for being a part of this and supporting the charity!! I really hope to be able to do this again!

Special Thanks to the following people: Cathi, Renee, Sherrie, Larolin, Angelica, Carole M., Heather, Suzanne, Joanne, John, Joan and Lynn. I hope I didn't miss anyone!

If you are in the KC area I'd love for you to come run with me! Here is the link: Rivalry Run

Seein' Strawberries

New Bloomin' Berries

I took some time today to create these cute little berries. I've been seeing crafters making strawberries out of heart die cuts so I thought I'd give it a try. Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Time for an UPDATE!

So, I'm finally back after being out of the loop for the past 2 weeks! I had to take a break to get through some health issues. But I'm almost done with that now (hopefully) and I'm so excited about summer and getting back to the crafting table! I want to thank everyone for sending such kind and encouraging message and e-mails my way. I appreciated each and every one of them!
Here are some new ice cream embellishments that have been added to my website and etsy store!

and some cupcakes...
