Think Pink!!

In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to make something PINK that would remind us all of how important our health is to us…I have a special place in my heart for Breast Cancer Survivors… My Grandmother, Mother, and SIL are all Survivors!!  How lucky are we??  I thank the Heavens above everyday.

So I made crocheted Boa/scarfs in a pretty variegated pink yarn… they are so pretty to wear and dresses up a plain old T-shirt!!  Trust me, I have made one in every color!!  :)

**If you would like to win one of these… please visit my Younique website- as any order placed between today through October 14th will be entered to win!!  I want to mail them out early in the month so they can be worn in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month… but they could be worn all year long!!

Something a little "Younique!"

Yep, I just became a Younique Presenter!  I never in a million years thought I would do something like this, as I for one, can't sell a thing!!  But, I am not really in it to "sell" yes, I do sell it, but I loved the product so much, I wanted the kit with all the fun pretty colors and mascara… that I bought the kit which automatically made me a Presenter!!  :)  Funny story really…

If you are new to the Younique make-up line…it is close to Bare Minerals (which I have used for years and love it) and MAC- which has some pretty awesome eye shadows.  Younique however, is cruelty free- never tested on animals, gluten free, chemical free, and natural.  I worry about what I put in my body, so why shouldn't I worry about what goes on it?

The best seller is the 3D Fiber Mascara, and if you haven't tried it, you are missing out!  The best mascara out there… it totally magnifies your lashes 300% and is safe and natural for your eyes.  Check it out here

I wanted to make sure I sent Thank Yous to those that purchase from me, so I made Thank you cards and added a little goodie to go along with it.  I think they turned out pretty!!

Cup Cake Fun

I don't know about you, but it seems that when I buy one thing, it usually calls for something else, and then something else… I get this trait from my mom for sure!!  But its not a bad one, as check out these darling stamps from Jaded Blossom!!  I love cupcakes, so imagine my need for these… right?  Had to have them!!

Well, I then found this mini-cupcake maker at Michael's for a steal… and thought, I should get that to go with my stamps… so I made a purchase!!  Hahahahaha

I had a ton of fun making the mini cupcakes… and they tasted great!  Only took like 3 minutes to bake inside this little maker, and a box of cake mix made 42 mini's!!  Didn't take as long as it sounds!

I then wanted to make something that I could put the stamps on, and then have a reason to distribute cupcakes, as I could have seriously eaten all 42 cupcakes!!  C'mon… they are mini's!!

I found this file from My Scrap Chick and it was so very easy to put together, I knew it would be a perfect fit for this round of cupcakes!!
