7 - 11

to most people this these numbers usually mean a convenient store chain.
but to me it's a date that forever changed my life.

eight years ago today, on july 11th, my mother anne, passed away from ovarian cancer.

she fought her battle with cancer for almost 2 and a half years.
she so wanted to live. she tried any treatment the doctors would give her just so she could stay here a little longer.
and she was still my mom - beautiful as always, in her cute short haired blonde wig and never without her make up on. i suppose it still made her feel "normal" in a life that wasn't anyone. cancer took alot away from her and my family as it does to all those touched by it.

i still miss her so. and always will.

so in honor of this day and my mom, i will be launching special editions of my "little box of hope" quickits in your choice of cancer awareness ribbon colors. i will be donating 10% of the sales of these kits to the National Cancer Insititue (in your choice of cancer research) and another 10% to the Ovarian Cancer National Allance in honor of my mom.

below are the colors available:

teal - ovarian cancer
pink - breast cancer
white - lung cancer
purple - pancreatic cancer & leiomyosarcoma
orange - leukemia & kndey cancer
black - melanoma
navy - colon cancer
burgundy - multiple myelomagrey - brain cancer
blue - prostate cancer
gold - childhood cancer & osteosarcoma
lime - lymphoma
peach - uterine cancer
yellow - sarcoma/bone cancer & bladder cancer
green - liver cancer
periwinkle - esophageal cancer & stomach cancer
lavender - all cancers

please see my "shoppe" at to for more details or to purchase.

quickits quick "bits": winter blues contest

feb 27th - mar 6th:

hi all-

i want SUMMER!!! (but right now i'd take spring!!)

i want to feel the warmth of the sun and wear open toe shoes. ok, for those of you who me - i still do where open toe shoes in the winter if it's not snowing or raining. but it's not the same.

this has been a long and cold winter. most places on the east coast have more snow than they know what to do with and places that never see snow, have this year. so it got me thinking of a new, summery quickit idea.

and here it is!!

"winter blues" quickit

the "winter blues" quickit includes:

tropical fruit punch mix
a cocktail napkin
tropical fruit candies
beach sand
a drink umbrella
tropical confetti
all tied up in an ocean blue ribbon belt

i'll be running a contest this week for 2 of these great kits and a 2 $20 gift certificates to or , to help us out of our winter blues.

to enter: go to my new etsy website - , read today's (2/27/10) blog and at the end of the blog page will be secret code words. convo or email the secret code words to me and your favorite quickit product and you'll be entered. if you purchase an item you'll receive another entry as well. the contest will run until 3/6/10

good luck!!

**** secret code words are: elphaba and glinda ******
