Not bad for 5 bucks!

I have always wanted a large, sparkly Eiffel tower, and now I have one, and for only 5.oo! Yay!
Here's how I did it. You go to Michael's and buy this...

It's even prettier in person. I couldn't get a good picture for some reason. I started off by putting it together and then glueing it with hot glue to give it extra strength. Then, I mixed together pink & linen acylic paints. I then used a sparkle glaze over that, and added pink crushed crystals all over. It's pretty tall too. Love, love, love it! I may just have to go back to Michael's and try some in other colors. I didn't even read the directions, and I put it together in less than 30 minutes. So, go get one and have some fun! I mean, 5.00? Easy projects, reasonable $ = happy me!! Oh, and it's made of wood too!

Got Love? Give Love.

For Valentine's Day, what better way to celebrate it than by helping a family who are trying to adopt a baby girl? I have teamed up with this family's brother-in-law, Scott Coons, who is the designer. He designed this exclusive logo for a t-shirt that the proceeds go to help with their adoption. You can check it out here. I went to college with them, and I'm happy to offer this custom logo in a necklace as well. A portion of the proceeds will also go to help them with their adoption. It can be customized on reverse. I have decided the way to kick off this new design, which is already on my website under "Specialty Custom" is to have a raffle. I have done raffles before for good causes, and they're always a lot of fun. All the proceeds will go to the Abernathy family from this raffle for Valentine's Day. Here's how to play: 1. buy a ticket. This will enter you in the raffle. 2. Tell other people! (That would be nice of you) 3. The winner will get a 30.00 gift certificate to my website! This will run until Friday at midnight CST. The winner will be a random number generated from the raffle tickets. Tickets are $1.00 each. You can buy just one to enter, but each ticket purchased gives you that many extra chances. Like I said, all the proceeds from this raffle will go to them. You can also help by visiting the website, or you can purchase a "Got Love?...Adopt" necklace here. (That would give you 30 tickets as well!)

Thank you & Happy Valentine's Day!

p.s... but the greatest of these is Love.
