I'm a Florida transplant who moved back up north and found the love of my life, Eric!!


I am very extremely BIG on volunteer work. 

I lost my mother to cancer in March of 1993 and in 2004, I found through a friend of mine Relay For Life with The American Cancer Society.  I began doing this yearly event in Bensalem, PA and in 2007 when FI and moved to New Jersey, I had to find a local event so we both joined Relay For Life of Woodbridge, NJ in 2008.  We created our own team, a website to help with fundraising activities and enlisted family and friends to both walk with us each year and to help fundraise.  You can visit our website at for any information.


Here are a few of the items that we have made by hand for sale for our events.  I have personally been touched by all of the wonderful people that I have met through Relay For Life and the best part, besides meeting the many, many survivors of this horrible disease, is to know that I am making a small difference in this battle.  : )

I have been trying to decide on what "signature" piece to create this year for our fundraising and came up with this little baby. I loved making this.  Thank you Ashley for the logo.  We are using it for our jewelry cards.

Love the earrings..wish I could get a pair but I have difficulty with metal allergies, even surgical steel and platinum give me trouble as earrings.  Fantastic cause that is very dear to my heart and I commend you on your selflessness.  Volunteering is great.
