Party for the Cure 2009

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure was held in NW Arkansas on Saturday. For the third year in a row I held my own little Fundraiser, A Party for the Cure. I donate a portion of my commission in Memory of my Sister in Law Debbie. She lost her battle with breast cancer on January 8th, 1996.

I had a little product tour around my house, showing some ideas for how I use the products in our home. These are the Camille Vases. I've taken some of the glass beads that you can buy at Wal*Mart or Hobby Lobby and created a diffuser in the smaller vase, and just added a candle to the taller one. You could easily use these in any room with tons of uses and they are on sale this month for only $9.95 with a $29.95 purchase. Wouldn't they make a great gift for Mother's Day?
Of Course I had some good food! You have to have snacks when you shop! Something salty, something sweet and something to drink. I've got it all covered! I bought some pink tulle and a lighter pink fabric remnant at Wal*Mart to set my "THINK PINK" buffet. I made Brownies and Sopapilla Cheesecake for my sweet choices. For my salty selctions I had some mixed nuts and dried beef and pickle roll-ups. So salty, but so GOOD!

The Sopapilla Cheesecake. I'll share the recipe on Tuesday for my Tuesday Treats!

I made Kelly's Cherry Limeade punch. So yummy! And EASY.

A closer view of the roll ups. A jar of dried beef, a tub of spreadable cheese, and baby dill pickles. Careful, they're addictive!

Throughout the year I accumulate more product than I should. Some items retire, so I don't need them for my kit to show anymore. Sometimes they are on special and I'll grab an extra to meet a personal sales goal. I pass the savings on to my customers, and donate a percentage of the sales. Here's some of the loot I have for sale.

It was a good time! Wish you could have been here!

I DO wish I could've been there! At least I got to see the goodies I missed out on-looks great as usual! I'm feeling a little better but I'm still sick! (it's getting really old!)
Can't wait for that recipe!

I scooped up some great bargains, saw lots of beautiful things, and as always - had fun visiting and the food was great! Thanks, Sherri!
