About Me

My photo
I was born with Cystic Fibrosis. I was diagnosed when I was only 2 months old. At the age of 13 I was diagnosed with Cepacia. I am now 32 years old. I am married to my best friend, Bryan. We have been married for over 13 years. In 2007 I was in end stage CF. I was told I was not a candidate for a life saving double lung transplant due to culturing Cepacia. I could not accept that. I found one center who would evaluate me. It was 2000 miles away from home in Pittsburgh, PA. It was there I started to die. After evaluations I had to be put on a ventilator to keep me alive. They decided to list me. On December 10,2007 just 3 days after being listed I received new lungs. I was given a miracle! God had a plan for me, God answered my prayers. It wasn't easy, but it is worth it!

Recycle Life Bracelet

Check out my newest design. . .I call it 'Recycle Life'. I can make it in any color you want. Single . . .possible two colors will be available. I haven't done a two color one yet, but I think it would be simple. The result would be top stripe one color and Bottom stripe the other color. For a "donate life" color combo it would be blue and green. I have ALOT of colors however. I can even add a paracord Cause Ribbon if you want.

CF/Transplant colors!

Check out this combo. . .Purple for CF and Green for Transplant/Organ Donation. I think they look *Fabulous*.

I just want to thank everyone who has donated and received a bracelet or decal. I LOVE making the bracelets and although my Vinyl Cutter is temporarily out of commission, I will be back to designing and cutting more decals soon too.

Oh and check out another bracelet I made I really liked how this one turned out. I added a green paracord cause ribbon for Transplant/Organ Donation. I think I will make one like it for myself too :)

Thanks again everyone, all your support means a lot to me :)

New Bracelet!! "HEART.LOVE"

I spent many hours figuring out this heart design! But it has turned out great :) You can now order One. I will post examples of color selections as I make them.

I can now make paracord bracelets to be a "one size fits most" design. They are a slip on style and will stretch to fit even large wrists or ankles. I am wearing one on my ankle now :) Great way to give one as a gift if you cannot get a wrist/ankle size!!

School Pride!!

Paracord bracelets to show off school spirit?! I got an order for a bracelet in University of Oklahoma colors (Red/White) which inspired me. I have made school colors a few times before. . .but I have never thought to really market that SOOOO, if you want to show off your school pride by wearing a comfortable, yet totally cool paracord bracelet look no further!! Just let me know what your school colors are and I will make one for you~
Here is how the OU one turned out. . .
For a little extra (I will have to price them out) You can add lettered beads to read ie: OU, ISU, BSU, or for high schools ie: BHS, SRH.  . etc.  I will try to get an example made and posted in the next week

Donate and help me run a 5K

Donate and get your decal or paracord bracelet and help me raise money for my entree fees. I am hoping to run two-three 5K races in the next couple months. The entree fees are not a lot of money, but any help would be appreciated.
 Here are a few ideas for "Donate Life" color combinations

*NOTE: If you order a bracelet please include what color combinations and your wrist or ankle measurement. I can make bracelets or anklets. Measure with a soft/sewing tape and measure it close to the skin. .not tight, but close. I add the proper amount of to your measurement to get the right fit. If you measure it loose, then the finished bracelet will also fit loose. THANKS!!

Donate Life Decal

Color Combinations

These are a few color combinations I have made. I have more examples and pics from people who have gotten bracelets from me are coming soon!! When you measure  your wrist do it close to the skin, I will add a necessary amount to insure a comfortable fit. If you measure loose on the wrist/ankle then expect a little more loose finished fit.

Don't forget that vinyl lettering/decals can be personalized! I have done a lot of different personalized projects.

Also the paracord bracelets are a HIT! They make great gifts too. I have found a local distributor so getting the colors you want is easier than ever. I have made over 20 bracelets in the last month. Hurry and get yours now :)
