"If You Don't Give Back, No One Will Like You"

For anyone who knows where the title of this post is from, good for you! :) I recently discovered Crowdrise, an online fundraising website. You can sign up, create your own pages to raise money for charities of your choosing, or join a team already in progress of reaching a charity goal.

I joined the movement for To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA). I've known about TWLOHA for a few years now, and fully support what they are striving to achieve. They're raising awareness for people suffering from depression, self-injury, addiction, and suicide. They're campaign slogan is "Love is the Movement"... which is the best way to describe what needs to happen. So many people feel that they are alone in this world, and what they need is to know that they are loved.

My own mantra (adapted from the TWLOHA movement) is "Love and be Loved" which is pretty strong. We all know people suffering, and we're all in this together. I've joined the movement, and would love to help raise awareness with anyone and everyone's help.

If you are able, and if this moved you, or at least intrigued you, I urge you to visit my fundraising page here:

There are tons of projects, charities, and groups raising money for any and every cause on this site! Do what moves you... 

The more we know, the better we are. We can make a difference, we just need to do it together.

Mercy Me! It's Been Far Too Long!

I feel like it's becoming a trend... not posting very often! Shame on me! This time, I promise I have a good excuse!
June 21st I left to backpack through Europe for a little over a month with my best friend!
We started in Ireland, headed to Scotland, England, Netherlands, France, Italy. It was amazing :)
Needless to say, I saw plenty of phenomenal sites, and met a ton of great people from all over the world! It was the experience of a lifetime and I'm very happy that I did it.
That being said... my Etsy shop is back up and running, as well as my bookswap on Goodreads.

I can promise you that I have many new ideas in my mind for crafts, and will be posting ideas shortly! I have recycled picture frame ideas, new jewelry and hair ideas as well! So be on the look out for a tutorial for picture frames, and new items popping up on Etsy! I start back serving at the bar this weekend, too, so I hope I can start posting more often again!

Enjoy the night, and I shall entertain you all yet again quite soon :)
