Giveaway for a good cause!

On Sunday October 17th, 2010 I will be joining thousands of other people in support of CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange County) at the annual Walk in the Park. This is my 7th year doing the walk! On January 10th, 2009, my best friend Karen and her husband Eric welcomed baby Phillip into the world. Phillip was born with a diaphragmatic hernia and was taken to CHOC via ambulance after he was born. At 5 days old, Phillip had surgery to fix his hernia and was released when he was 12 days old. Phillip is now a healthy 20 month old handsome boy. I am so thankful to CHOC for all that they have done for him! This year is special because Phillip is going to do the walk with us this year! We even made a team just for him! Team Monkey! If you support me and the children of CHOC between now and October 15th, you will be entered to win a bag from my shop! Together we can make a difference!

I love fabric!

Fabric.com is one of my all time favorite places to get fabric! And now they have started carrying DISNEY fabric! Fun fabrics inspire me to create! I also got this fun book One-yard wonders which are fun projects that can be made with only ONE yard of fabric! I am excited to try some of those out!!

Who inspires me volume 1

My friend Jeniece of The Painting Libra! You can find her at thepaintinglibra.etsy.com. She makes beautiful and fun hand painted ceramics. Her mugs are awesome for cereal or soup and her latte mugs are perfect for coffee or hot chocolate! She is very encouraging and has taught me everything I know about Etsy! Just seeing her ceramics inspires me to keep working and trying new things!
