Cash Mob at Bloom Coffee & Floral

20121207-070621.jpg

Today at 3:30 pm a very exciting event is happening in my hometown of Paynesville, MN. It’s a Cash Mob Event at my very own sister Karlene’s store, Bloom Coffee & Floral.

I am so sad that I cannot be there, I have to get Sawyer to his play practice. I will be there in Spirit though! I hope anyone local that has a moment can stop in and Mob her!!

She has a huge heart, has donated flowers to our local school ball/girl scouts for years, hosted cancer fundraisers, teaches floral design to kids and works hard for her community. She has amazing creativity and she inspires me so much!

I have shared photos of her beautiful shop and her new etsy store, the most recent post was here.

She has chosen to build her business in our small hometown, despite the fact that her style, trendy decor and decorating flair may be better suited to an urban setting. I am so proud to be her sister!

If you can’t make it today, you could probably call her earlier in the day and get a gift certificate over the phone (hint, hint!). 320-243-ROSE.

I hope today is Wildly Successful for her!! If you stop in, say Hi for me!

Today I am prepping for my Trunk Show at The Porch & Atelier in Buffalo, MN. (11-3pm, Saturday, Dec. 8) It worked out so perfectly that Kya has a hockey tournament in Buffalo.

Here is a new necklace I created out of milk glass like vintage white beads.

Hope to see you this weekend in Buffalo! 🙂 Kris

LOVE PINK, Believe in Miracles, Live Every Day!

On Fourth of July weekend this year there was a tragic accident that changed the life of a local family & community. Kristyn Osterhaus was thrown out of a jeep and broke her neck and is currently recuperating in Atlanta. She is paralyzed and is one inspiring adorable 18-year-old. She loves pink… believes in miracles and is living life to the fullest everyday.

You can follow her progress on her caringbridge site. 

The community of Paynesville is holding a fundraiser for her. I wanted to donate a necklace to the silent auction. When I was making the necklace, I had an idea. What if I donated two necklaces that are sold as a set. One for the person who purchases the necklace and one as a gift to Kristyn from the purchaser. So I created a set, each a little different, yet with the same inspiring message.

Here is the website for the fundraiser.

Here is the duo of necklaces for the silent auction.

The KG necklaces in “real life” are a very vibrant pink color, they seem to show a lot of red in the photos.

Duo in Pink!

The courage that this family exhibits is amazing. The fundraiser is to help them prepare their home for Kristyn to come home.

I believe in miracles! Have a FANTASTIC DAY!

Kris
