Quotes: "Before you ever receive the wonderful treasures of a happy life, you must first give. Give of yourself. Be of service to others. Only what you give can be multiplied back into your own life. This is the law of the harvest, the law of the ten-fold return. If you give nothing, even it is multiplied, you receive nothing."- Mary Kay Ash

We took Pinkalicious to Boo at the Zoo Tuesday! Our Pinkalicious was very precioulicious and she had so much fun as did the mommy and daddy! We are looking forward to more Halloween festivities this weekend and of course next Wednesday! Happy Halloween blog friends and readers!
October is breast cancer awareness month. This print is in honor of my mother who is now two years after the big C diagnosis. I can officially annouce that my prints (this one and the two in the post below) are now part of a fundraiser for a friend's brother who has cancer in many places in his body. My friend's brother is undergoing intense rounds of chemo and is having to remain in the hospital for treatment. He is recently unemployed, and is married with two children. I am giving my friend's brother a percentage of each print that is sold. If you are interested you can message me two ways. You can leave a comment with your email under this post or you can click on the link on the far right of this blog to email me. Once you've messaged me I can give you prices, etc.
This print is an 11 by 14. It will be a poster print for you to frame.
My favorite new art obession are with these two subway art prints. I made a "Vows" print last spring just to see what I could do with it and it was pretty...even more so framed, which I did recently. I made the USC print yesterday and then I made the Clemson print by request. I think both prints are pretty neat and I love how both pieces are so personal!
I am receiving other requets for subway art prints so I would be glad to make one for you about a school or college of your choice. I can even do special event prints like baby's name and stats.
These sure are keepsakes! I sure can't wait to have the USC print framed in my living room!
Print sizes are 11X14. They are available on canvas too. They will make the perfect gift of any kind!
I am so glad that tomorrow will be just like a weekend day! C and I get to sleep in, wear our pajamas later than 5:15 am and 6:10 am, and do whatever this princess wants...I'm sure lunch out is an option! All because tomorrow is not a "work" day for this teacher mommy!
This makes me smile every time I look at it! We were eating out earlier in the summer at my fav, Mellow Mushroom! Once C got her crayons and paper, Sam asked her to write a C! After writing "C" by herself, she was just pleased, proudly saying, "I made my own C", I did it mommy and daddy"...so proud! This little girl is left handed and so I have no idea about how to help her hold crayons and pencils the left handed way. Even having the paper turned "different" confuses me! She's a smart girl! I'm pretty sure she's already got it figured out!
Miss C will be Pinkalicious for Halloween this year so what more could a girl want than a personalized package from Pinkalicious (aka Aunt Rhonda) herself! Miss Caroline was beside herself with giggles, grins, and smiles this afternoon when she opened up the special halloween package and saw that it was a Pinkalicious book! C thought the packaging and book topped going to ballet tonight...it was that fun!
We ended our evening by going to dance and coming home to eating Sam's homemade apple pie (ahem...Skytop Granny Smith Apples) and vanilla icecream and reading none other than Pinkalicious!
