Celebrities at the Emmys Gifting Lounge

Although my ‘boyfriend’, Shemar Moore, didn’t make his appearance at the GBK Emmys Gifting Lounge a few weeks ago, there were a lot of others that showed!!!  He was on our run sheet to show, but he was busy at rehearsals, etc.  Pfftttt ... If he knew I was there, I'm SURE he would've shown up! I wanted to share some pictures that were taken at the GBK Emmys Gifting Lounge. I love this one of Matt LeBlanc and David Crane, the creator of "Friends" and "Episodes".   Of course, the host of the big show, Neil Patrick Harris, made an appearance ...

Sew it All TV DVD

Great news, friends!  The Sew It All TV Season 5 DVD is now available for purchase!! You may remember earlier this year, I taped an episode for Sew It All on PBS with host, Ellen March.  I taught the viewers how to make a fabric bracelet and a card holder.  For the written tutorial and templates, you can see it in the Sew It All Magazine. {psstt ... the purple magazine located over on the right sidebar}.  A lot of friends, family, and followers were unable to watch it as it did not show in their area.  In fact, I haven't even been able to watch it as the series is not showing at this time on PBS in Denver.  I'm very excited that my family and friends will be able to see it ... and so will … [Read more...]

Breast Cancer Awareness – Jane Iredale, Makeup With a Cause

Make up has always been a challenge for me.  I have sensitive skin, so putting anything on my face is always makes me a bit anxious, especially when it's a product I've never used.  The feeling of having makeup on my skin also makes me feel uncomfortable in that I just want to wash it off.  In saying this, I was invited to a Jane Iredale launch event in Denver, CO at Soft Surroundings to try out their new line of make up.  My auntie was in town from Canada, so we both went {it was wonderful to do something girlie with just her and I}!  We both enjoyed the fabulous make up artists and we also loved the store! It has been a long time since I've had my make up done by someone.  How … [Read more...]
