3 day walkers kick asphalt::::::

We did it...... we met the challenge head on- conquered something scary, the unknown::

ignored the thoughts and voices that whispered we weren't strong enough,

or that our body's couldn't take the beating

All I know is::::

  • how in awe I am for the women out there that have met Cancer right in the face and not backed down

  • for the hundreds upon hundreds of volunteers out there that support the cause- you rock!

  • Women are amazingly powerful when we come together (why do we forget this?)

  • The mind is the key to our strength- keep it positive to succeed

  • being part of something larger than us is a must- especially when it connects us to our community

Thank you everyone for supporting me through this- thank you Candace you amaze me with your strength and soul::

From 0-60 in 3 days We did it!

The Warrior in us all

When we think of a true Warrior , what words come to mind?
I'm thinking::::::strength, bravery, power and courage.
We all know a warrior, a woman who has battled breast cancer and conquered the fear of the unknown
My daughter Candace invited me to be a part of her team
She wanted to pay tribute to her Grandma Laura who had battled breast cancer and won.
So I have been training and walking preparing myself for this upcoming weekend where we will take on 60 miles in 3days::::
There's that fear of the unknown:::: I bet we will be surrounded by strength, bravery power and courage.
It feels exhilarating to be part of something so huge, a community of those who walked through the fire and came out on the other side shining like Moses
All the achy feet, blisters, fatigue,sore backs::::
battle scars that I will proudly wear:)

Creations for the Cure

Some little pretty's I made to raise funding and awareness for the Susan 3 day walk for the cure.This miss fancy pants will be available at Papertales:::

I like working with fabric, the softee necklaces are so light weight with just enough rust and tattered gems to feed the vintage vixen in all of us

I will be bringing my softee necklaces and Mary May I (pictured above and below)
to the domestic bliss event this upcoming weekend:: maybe I can talk a couple of pretty ladies into wearing them :::
