Friday Eye Candy {14- Shopping for a Cause}

I know I know it's a day early! But I want to give y'all all the chance y'all can to shop for a cause!

I read the story of Rachel Beckwith, a 9 year old little girl with a HUGE heart. Rachel was asking for donations instead of birthday gifts for her 9th birthday.

Here's a direct quote from her website that she set up.

"I found out that millions of people don't live to see their 5th birthday," Rachel wrote. "And why? Because they didn't have access to clean, safe water so I'm celebrating my birthday like never before. I'm asking from everyone I know to donate to my campaign instead of gifts for my birthday. Every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund freshwater projects in developing nations."

Rachel had a goal of $300. She raised $220 by her birthday. Shortly after her 9th birthday she died in a tragic accident. Since then her mother has reopened Rachel's website in hopes of earning more money for a cause that Rachel cared so deeply about.

How can you help?

You can donate HERE directly
You can shop for a cause!

Thank you in advance for everyone who helps out her cause!

Don't judge a book by it's cover... they may look weird but they are AMAZING musicians...
 If you like Rock.

Here's the video to Weak and Powerless one of their radio hits.

Here's something suitable for all audiences is a cover of Rocket Man done by the lead singer!
{The lead singer has 3 Bands: A Perfect Circle- Alternative Rock, TOOL- Hard Rock, and Puscifer- Rock/ Industrial(ish)}

So ANYWAYS.... Back to the concert. {Sorry in advance for the iPhone pics!}

So let's take ya back for a second...

NOT a very pretty before and after eh?
"Before" is before we ever moved in to our house...
"After" is about a month after we moved in to about a month ago... Not pretty...

So after the hubs cleaned out all that junk, we painted and put down new flooring...

We started bringing all my "craft crap" as the hubs likes to call it...

And we have........

Wait for it......

Are you ready??????????


^ Not part of my "craft crap"^

If you follow 20Something on FACEBOOK you would know that a few days ago I got a trash can. And was REALLY excited about it! Why?!?!?! Because it's cute... and it holds all my not-so-cute-shipping-supplies!

If you're ever lucky enough to stop on by East Texas and get to come to Casa de 20Something... You will have to sign the STOP sign... all the cool kids do it...

Duh! Pinning!

Do you follow Sign Me Up on Facebook?!?

You should... I'm pretty awesome... and you MIGHT be lucky enough to get in on a sweet deal or a discount code...

If you follow Sign Me Up you would know that I want to have a sign in EVERY state by the end of the year.
What better way to do that than with a new map in my office?

Last week I ordered THIS map from Amazon... and patiently waited for it to arrive! It FINALLY came in on Saturday! I promptly recruited my Momma to help and glued it down to a cork board. Then asked T to help hang it!

Next I had my face an inch or two away from it while I pinned the map on all the places that I've mailed a sign to!

Ahhhh only 42 more states to go!

P.S. New signs coming to the shop VERY VERY soon!

I'll be rockin out at some of THESE parties!
