For Karie

A dear and beautiful woman passed away on January 16, 2010. An amazing athlete, a true friend, an extremely bright and intelligent woman, a loving wife, daughter and sister and through everything, battling cancer. She will always be a light in the lives of everyone that knew her. As a tribute to her and what she loved - tennis, and fought so hard through - cancer, I will be donating all proceeds from for the month of February to the Karie Schlukebir Award through the Indiana University Athletics Department and the American Cancer Society.

As a constant reminder of Karie, the continuing fight of those stricken by cancer and the constant research needed to find a cure I have added a new item to my shop - The Karie Karnation - a purple carnation to be worn for cancer awareness. This item will always be available from now on and sales of this flower will continue to be donated to the IU Foundation and the American Cancer Society.

You can find my shop here.

If you would like to donate directly to the IU Foundation you can do so here.

I'm ready....

I'm ready for SPRING! With a big snow storm knocking on our back door, all I would love to see are spring flowers, hints of green grass, and budding trees. The robins are already here, but they might want to head south again!

Uniquely Marang

I wanted to show you all some of the more unique and custom creations I have had in my shop. Not only do I create my Carnation and Chrysanthemum Flower pins, pendants, and rings, but I have ventured out of creating safety zone and made some other fun things. I started my shop with mostly bags like this one...

I was contacted to make a fabric box to hold 12" square quilt blocks. I think it turned out pretty good!

I have made other flowers too...

What unique items have you made recently? Show 'n tell!!

Getting Organized

It's on all our minds right now - the itch for spring, new year resolution, after holiday mess. It's time to get organized!! I have started this de-cluttering idea of getting rid of 5 things per day for 30 days. That's gonna be a lot of stuff!! But I'm ready and hitting this head on! It's already day 5 and I've gotten rid/donated already 25 items. I don't even feel like I made a dent yet!

(Yes, sadly, that's part of my desk.) What are you all doing to de-clutter or simplify your life?
