Website is closing

Just a note to let you know that Ree and I have decided to close down Save Our Hooters. As much as we love creating Pink Ribbon items and have passion for fundraising for it, we both got really busy with other things this year. Neither of us could devote time to new products, and all of the back end things that go into making a website successful.
I will continue to offer our patterns and a select few items on my website: From time to time, you will find special Pink Ribbon dolls there too. I will always make one for you or your loved one as I believe they can bring comfort during a time of need.
Thank you so much for your support!!
Cindy and Ree

We are on Etsy!

I've started listing some of our products on Etsy - you can find us under my user ID, The Cupcake Dolls:

We have our very own category! I hope that in the near future, I will get caught up enough to list a few one of a kind dolls there. I'll be sure to post when we do!

If you are new to Etsy, it is a handmade marketplace. I love it! All kinds of very creative artists and you can leave feedback for your purchases. It's a great way to find one of a kind items.

In loving memory

We got the news this week that a fellow crafter and Prim Mart sister, Kat passed away from breast cancer. It was a long road for her with chemo treatments and being sick, things just went downhill so quickly.

All week, my Prim Mart sisters have been emailing about our loss - we all spent a couple of weekends together at convention. We shared happy, smiling memories - which quickly turned to tears. Kat and her mom came to convention together and we are so sad for Maggie who has lost a child. We are sad for Kat's husband, children, grandchildren, her extended family and all of her Prim Mart sisters who are missing her so much.

Cancer is so ugly, it sneaks up and steals life so quickly. I continue to pray that we will find a cure.

We have decided to donate the 10% we've raised so far to Kat's family. We will continue to fundraise for other charitable organizations but at this time, doing this just feels right to both of us.

It's been a while since we blogged

Both of us have been preoccupied and working hard for a big craft show weekend August 14th. Thankfully, we both had a great weekend and are back to work in all of our ventures.

We're so proud to be featured in the "Finds" column at Create and Decorate magazine this month! A huge thank you to Judi, Beverly and Noelle at the magazine for this opportunity.
