Weekly Loves!

1. Casas por Cristo

This is my mom's BFF's daughter, Aimee. She works for Casas por Cristo building homes for impoverished families in Juarez, Mexico (one of the most dangerous cities in the world). Due to lack of funds, her internship was cancelled. BUT she is going down there with them anyway with 3 other team members.. and they are raising the money on their own. The homes cost $5000 each to build & she is working on raising a goal of $35,000 total. Any little bit helps!!!

I LOVE those frame jewelry holders. sometimes if you get a mirror at the goodwill you can just remove the mirror part and still have that cardboard backing. i have really good luck finding them at garage sales and goodwills. i have lots of framed "art" i keep meaning to repurpose. since i'll be unemployed in a few weeks (FINALLY) maybe i'll have time for projects! yay!

Those are some awfully handsome menz you have up in hurr. ;)

Bright, bright red is my next serious consideration since I don't see electric blue happening any time soon. Although I DID promise myself that it would be some time before I turn 30...

I'll at least help spread the word on Casas por Cristo.

Janea: I have terrible luck at Goodwill it seems! I really NEED to go in one day without Maddox running around so I can really pay attention and search! I'll def check out the mirrors. I didn't really think about that!

Shy - Let's go ginger together!
