It's a Business!

I have had a lot to think about the last couple of days... deciding on what decisions to make that would benefit our family, our business, and me. Sometimes you just have to "agree to disagree". From the bad something positive comes shining through! Once everything is "INKED" as they say... I will let you know more. Here we go!

Some excited ladies who are about to shop! Plus, it was freezing cold outside! They wanted in!!!

Oh What a Night!

Funky Junk Sister's Night Out was a blast! Here is our PINK tree! My pictures do not do it justice, but I do have to say it was beautiful in person. Deb Ward Kennedy and all the Vendors did an awesome job making this an extra special Breast Cancer Awareness Tree!

Debi Ward Kennedy
of Retreat Design put together the beautiful tree and designed many of the extra special touches that were added. Debi and her hubby BOB are very talented... if you ever get a chance to chat with them you will fall in love with all of their positive energy and creations!

The clown was made and designed by the New England Saltbox located in Sumner, Washington.
The PINK reindeer was designed by one of our talented vendors Cynthia McBride. It was named after 2 of her friends who had Breast Cancer. All of the ornies for the tree had extra special touches... and Debi Bock we did find yours! =)

This beautiful lady, Linda Olsen, has started Tassels for a Cause. She is a breast cancer survivor! Linda wasn't able to come to the show, however, she was there in spirit with the gorgous tassels she made for the tree! Check her out at

Here is fellow blogger JOYWORKS with one of our vendor giveaways. She won a very special gift made by the talented Michelle Renee. Michelle donated a boudoir doll named after her aunt, Susan Dale (also pictured). Susan is an eight time breast cancer survivor and is currently fighting for the ninth time. Our prayers are with you Aunt Susan.

And the Winner of the Tree was Mary Anderson of Whidbey Island! She was at the Girl's Night Out Event!

Next, is a extra special request that I made from our lovely ladies The Island Chicks! Just days before the show I asked them to make an apron for one of our giveaways and they didn't let me down. It was fabulous! Patty Green was the lucky winner of the apron... I hope her hubby got the message to her! lol I will be following up =)

We also had more donations from other vendors... The Pickle Patch gave us a one of a kind Bird House. Some how I didn't get a picture of it (what was I thinking!) Michelle Renee also gave us a pretty pink bra with a frilly feathered hanger. Mary Worthington gave us a great lavender bubble bath and salt set... sure did smell great!

The next picture is of The Zumbamanics! They were in the next room doing their Zumba thang. They also raised money for our Breast Cancer Benefit. After Zumba they all went SHOPPING at the Funky Junk Sister's Show!

I call that motivation!

Thanks to everyone who made this night such a great success! Until the next one... info coming soon!!!!
