Wild Water Adventure!

Saturday was our company picnic...which was held at Wild Water Adventures! Earlier in the week I was getting really excited...until the forecast called for 110 degree weather on Saturday!!! WOW! HOT! But I still was looking forward to the party...delicious food, great prizes, chatting up with coworkers and the famous Salsa competition. This year the plate and bowl were absolutely adorable...I had to win! So...I cranked out my Grandma O's famous salsa recipe and submitted it into the competition! Guess what...I I also received a gift certificate to one of our local restaurants!
It was a fantastic time!!!

Happy Birthday Dean!

This is a picture of Dippin Dean for Halloween...we dressed up as "DuncanInk"! As you can tell Dean is a total ROCK STAR! He is known in Ceramic Land as "Dippin Dean" and known to music lovers as "Drummin Dean"!

In honor of Drummin Deans birthday we wanted to do something special...a suggestion from V here at work was lets honor Dean by donning our Rock n Roll attire! Everyone brought out their rock tee's or like a few of us made special shirts. Alyson added some special sparkle to her Rolling Stones shirt...I created an airbrush "Rush" (Dean's favorite band) tank using Tulip® Spirit™ Spray-on Metallic Fabric Paint.

Here is a pic of the Rock n Roll group that dressed up!
Myself, Alyson, Allee, Alexis - Front row left to right
David, Jen and Dean - Back Row
(Allee made a tye dye tee to represent Deans band Hat-Trick)

Allee made a custom jacket with Tulip® Express Yourself™ X-Large Metallic 3D Iron-on Transfer™ plus Tulip® Spirit™ Iron-On Appliqué Numbers & Letters spelling out Hat-Trick!

We had such a fun day...just wish that V was here to join in our rockn good time!

Happy Birthday Dean!

The Perfect Gift...

For my sisters birthday I wanted to get her something unique, needs to represent her...what better place to shop than etsy?! Where I am able to find endless imaginative possibilities! So...after doing some searching I came across a place called Surly-Ramics. They make amazing trendy jewelry pieces...and I found just the right one for her! Another fabulous find is they use Duncan Products!!! Yippee...perfect gift using the perfect product! The photo above is all of the stickers and packaging that came with "the perfect gift" and there was even an inspirational message..."One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art" - Oscar Wilde...ok...LOVE that message!!

This is a close up of the necklace that I purchased from have to check out their site!!!
Now I need to order some goodies for me!!

Think Pink!!!

Saturday night my mom, BFF (Michele) and I got dressed in pink ready to go to the Ladies Night Out event held at the Sierra Vista Mall. Not sure what I expected...but it was decorated in PINK (of course), they served Cosmos, had delicious appetizers, great music and even had NY Street Signs attached to the light posts!!

I love that people went overboard with the pink feather boas! for the movie...if you haven't seen
Sex in The City...GO NOW!!!!

I had such an amazing time and it was all for a great cause!!! The ticket sales were donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Also did you know that Cynthia Nixon (aka Miranda) is also an Ambassador for Susan G. Komen for the Cure®?

PS - Did I mention I know Dante???
