Pioneer Day Giveaway!!!

Do you know that today is a holiday in Utah???
It is!!! It's a day of fireworks, bbq's, and the banks are closed:)




On this day in 1847, Brigham Young led the first group of pioneers into
the Salt Lake valley, and he said "This is the place!"



Did you know this fun Utah fact?

"Jell-O has often been associated with Mormon culture. Kraft’s sales figures from 1997 show that Salt Lake City residents consume more Jell-O than anywhere else in the U.S."

(straight from the jello facts web site)

I heard somewhere that we eat the most green jell-o too!!!
We even have been known to put shredded carrots in it... ew. 



 We also talk funny....
I used to live in a town called American Fork....
Old timers call it American Fawrk.
We also have a habit of leaving out the T sound in some words, like mountain.... it sounds more like m-ow-ain.

AND we have fry sauce. Those of you who don't have it,
you have my sincere pity, lol. It is miraculous stuff.

Utah is a beautiful place, and I am so grateful to live here. It's also full of talented people, and I'm so blessed to call a lot of them my friends!

Meet Baylee!!!

Today I have a real live hero for you to meet!

Her name is Baylee.
She is in first grade.
and she has beaten cancer.
TWICE!



I am so impressed by her story, and by her sweet mother.

When Baylee was going through treatment she lost her hair.
Now we all know that while having hair is nice, it's not what makes us beautiful.

Baylee's momma wrote some books all about it.

Here they are:


You can read all about it by clicking 

and she also wrote this one


You can read all about it by clicking 


 They have started a foundation for kids with cancer,
it's called Brave, Bald, Beautiful LLC
you can read all about it by clicking


please take a minute and read her story,  learn about the hair fairy,
and donate if you can. 
I did!

You can also follow them on facebook by clicking 


Now here's where I come in!
Baylee's cousin contacted me and asked me to draw up some graphics to go along with the book, so she could create a companion book review. How awesome is that???? What an honor to be included in a small way :)
Here are the bundles I made:

TPT's Supercharge Seller Conference

What an experience!!!!!

I have to tell you, it was far more than I had ever imagined, and I don't
think I have ever been more scared in my whole life, lol.
And it really happened!!!! HOLY SNAP!

This is a loooooong post, and I'm so sorry but I want to remember everything.

I was honored to be a presenter this last week,
I am blown away by the company I was in..... both others
presenting and those who attended.


It was held at the Venitian Hotel in Las Vegas!


It was my family's very first real vacation. I'm so glad that 
they came with me, but I did miss out on some chances
to visit and spend time with my friends. I appreciated every offer, and hope next year to have more time :)

I can not even tell you how awesome it was to meet my friends
and see them face to face. I was so flustered that I didn't even think to get my phone out and take pictures, so I had to "borrow" them from everyone.... and Miss Terri was so awesome to let me use her photos too. I don't want to forget a single minute!

Here are some of the swiped memories...


There were so many people, that I was very overwhelmed..... people probably thought I was a total nut case, lol.

(See the arrow? It's pointing to Jennifer, who was hiding I believe. She's my holder together of everything. What a blessing she is to me, and I was so grateful to have her there. She worked her buns off!)




Here are a few of the people that I got to hug :)
Annie Moffatt, Susana Westby, Fran Kramer, and Kristen Oldham
Crystal Radke
and Elizabeth Hall!!!!


and Katie Mense,
Jen Jones,
and Lisa Mattes and Katie Knight



Farrah Shipley,
Terri Izatt and John Hughes,
and Valerie Donaldson


Then there was Elvis!!!!!

and so many more...... I just don't have pictures! 
I was so humbled and awestruck by it all. 
Thank you to all who took time to visit with me, and listen to my story, and session.
It was really tough to follow the key notes and the first sessions!
Everyone did such a fantastic job, and were so inspiring.

I got side tracked and missed the last two slides in my slide show, 
so I am going to post them here.


TPT has changed my life.
I am so grateful for the opportunities that it has brought me,
and the friends who have helped make it possible.

A chance of a lifetime.

I am truly blessed.




Until we meet again my friends!!!
