Fundraiser for Unperfect Angel

"People always come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you will know exactly what to do." ~ Unknown. When I met Erika Bogan a few short months ago, I knew that we met for a reason. You see, she is a paraplegic and an inspiration to ALL! She has an amazing story to tell and share with the world. What better way to share her story and preserve it than through her very own storybook? Click Here to see Erika's book that she self-published at www.mystorybooklady.com.

Erika is the reigning Ms. Wheelchair NC 2009 and an inspirational speaker who has dedicated her life to proving that ANYTHING is possible. She will be competing in the Ms. Wheelchair America pageant August 24-29 in South Dakota. Read more at her website: http://lilunperfectangel.webs.com/

***Fundraiser to help sponsor Erika in covering the expenses of the national pageant and her trip to South Dakota. She needs $500 more by June 15th! Purchase a copy of her inspiring storybook "Unperfect Angel" and help spread her story. Proceeds will be donated directly to Erika. Cost of storybook is $49.95 + tax/shipping. Orders must be placed through me (not through my website.) Please contact me at betty@mystorybooklady.com or 404.729.0388 to order.

Father's Day Frenzy makes it easy to get your shopping done for hubby, Dad, Father-in-law, granddad, etc...

Graduation Card

Check out this cute graduation card I made for my mom to send this graduate! This card will accompany small symbolic items with reference to corresponding Bible verses in a gift bag to give to a student upon graduation. It's a clever little gift to give, especially for teachers or youth group leaders or pastors who may have a large number of students to give gifts to. There are other card templates available on our Template Gallery at www.mystorybooklady.com

Happy Mother's Day!

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. It is primarily a regional holiday celebrated in the Mexican state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico, and especially in U.S. cities with a significant Mexican population. It is not, as many people think, Mexico's Independence Day, which is actually September 16. http://www.mexonline.com/cinco-de-mayo.htm

Have fun and be safe when you celebrate with a margarita today! ~ Betty
