October Breast Cancer Awareness

In the past few months so much has been happening around me so I haven't been on in awhile. Everyone's lives are busy,hectic and full of everyday surprises. So I wanted to let you know I am still here :) October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and it is something I am close to since my mother is a survivor and this means I have to watch myself and my daughter pretty closely. I sell Thirty One and love their products! I made these cute little wristlets with Thirty One and if you are interested in ordering one please let me know or go to my website to make your own :) I want to celebrate you and your journey! Have a great month! Tawnya --

Retreat Weekend in Gainsville Texas! WHAT FUN :)

Thank you Melissa Robinson for a fabulous time! I heart you!

Secret Sister gift! Amanda you rock!

One of the gifts I gave my Secret Sister using Tim Holtz inks! Inside is FULL of Ribbon :)

Art work by Amanda Canale isn't she AWESOME! Love this idea I am going to scraplift this for sure!

A kit I bought a few years ago at the GASC I hate kits like these where you have to cut out all the pieces... guess that's why it took me so long to finish but it turned out rather cute I think!
My Secret Sister Amanda :) Thank you for making the retreat so much FUN and all my sweet gifts!
