A Worthy Cause...

My friend, the pink, hosted a benefit yesterday in her home for the Aubrey Rose Foundation. The Aubrey Rose Foundation helps families with children who are facing serious or life-threatening illness. The Foundation was named for a special and happy little girl, Aubrey Rose, who battled each day for survival and unfortunately lost that battle just shy of her 3rd birthday. In her memory the Foundation works to alleviate some of the hardship that far too many families face in the wake of their child's illness. 
Along with a few others we came together to support this worthy cause for a fun-filled afternoon with friends. Thank you Jeanne for opening up your home and our hearts. 

Lillia Rose and Thirty one participated in this event. 
It was a good day to start your Christmas shopping!

I shared amuse studio with some new faces and some old. 

Regina could not tear herself away from the Lia Sophia jewelry display....let her birthday celebrations continue!

Thanks to Pampered Chef for sharing in this event too. I am sorry to say I did not get a picture of her wonderful display of products. We had a small crowd but we all enjoyed ourselves. I know the Aubrey Rose Foundation is thankful for our contributions to the Dance For The Heart Of It silent auction.

Super Sunday!

Super Sunday Shopping Sensation!

  • Come on out to jumpstart your Christmas shopping; buy a gift for your best friend, mom, sister or daughter; or get a little something for yourself! All hostess benefits will be donated for the Aubrey Rose Foundation to use at their Dance For The Heart Of It silent auction. The Aubrey Rose Foundation helps families with children who are facing serious or life-threatening illness. They have covered the cost of needed surgeries, chemo treatments, handicapped vans, transportation and overnight accommodations for families just to name a few of their good works. They also celebrate life with parties at local and Dayton area Ronald McDonald houses, creating special memories for the families there. The foundation was named for a special and happy little girl who battled each day for survival. She endured several surgeries including a heart and double lung transplant. Aubrey Rose was progressing when she died suddenly just shy of her third birthday. In her memory, the foundation works to alleviate some of the hardship that far too many families face in the wake of a child’s illness. Please help Julia and I secure some awesome gifts for this worthwhile cause! For more information on the Aubrey Rose Foundation, please visit

thankful for you...

I made several of these cards using the thankful for you stamp set. 
I used kraft cardstock, french roast cardstock, twine, and squash ink. 
I love how simple they were to make.

it's becoming tradition...

Luke is a BIG Packers fan!!

It was 8 years ago Luke went to his first Packers/Bengals game...and yesterday, Luke and his dad went again to the Packers/Bengals game. It is becoming a tradition that they will hopefully continue in future years.
What a great father/son outing!

thanks so much

I am not sure if I ever shared these thank you notes I made using the haunted mansion background, but here they are. I love that background for more than Halloween. As you can see the thank you notes turned out beautiful!

These are the perfect treat bags to give to your friends at Halloween. you can insert a gift card where the message is or you can fill the bag with candy treats...or if you really like your friend, you can do both. Thanks to my great upline, Melissa for this wonderful idea.

ghosty treats!

This is one of the treats we made at the workshop held at my house on Sunday. I found these darling take out boxes at Michaels. They were a steal at 50 cents a package of 6! The little ghost is from the Happy Haunting set and matching die. I love how the orange cording adds just the right amount of color. Fill the box with your favorite treat!

vendor show

Last night I joined in with a group of ladies to showcase small business' and to spread the word of amuse studio. We were in a model condo in my town and we had a great turnout. Met some new people and some great ladies who are passionate about their work!

My friend Marcheta and I shared booth space. It was fun to see all her beautiful Celebrating Home items. 

We had the office room in the condo so it was great for me to display more of amuse studio. 
Give me a call ladies to set up your workshop and get stamping!
