"The economy is all the news. Everyone is tightening their belts. Unemployment is at an all time high. The nerve of me to come begging for money, but here I am. I am again signed on to do The MS Bicycle Tour – “Rock-n-Roll”. This is a 2-day ride of scenic bicycling. Starting from Graceland, Home of the “King” of Rock-n-Roll, the ride is 150 miles (over two days) of 'rolling' road on the way to Tunica, MS. The mixture of scenery is astounding. The return day is from the bling of the casino through cotton fields and the some of the poorest deltas of Mississippi.
INCENTIVE: Yes, there will be give aways. Yes, I am having more fun with bike chains. My latest art is pictured above. Donate $100 or more and you can select from those shown, or commission a special request. Donate $20 or more (but less than $100) and be entered in a drawing for the pictured art of your choice. The drawing will be held on September 10. So make your donations early.

What's funny is that Barb and I are similar in several ways: we both have small piles of paperwork on our coffee tables, we both use push pins to hang pictures in the bathroom, we have similar tastes in sheets, and love color and nature. We both believe in "visions" and messages from spirit guides. I really enjoyed meeting her and her hubby, Leo.
I am again signed on to do The MS Bicycle Tour – “Rock-n-Roll”. This is a 2-day ride of scenic bicycling. Starting from Graceland, Home of the “King” of Rock-n-Roll, the ride is 150 miles (over two days) of 'rolling' road on the way to Tunica, MS. The mixture of scenery is astounding. The return day is from the bling of the casino through cotton fields and the some of the poorest deltas of Mississippi. The ride is September 12 -13 this year. I am riding in this bicycling adventure, not only for the challenge of riding 150 miles in two days, but also to raise money for multiple sclerosis. MS is a devastating disease of the central nervous system that strikes young adults usually between the ages of 20 and 50. MS is devastating because it is so unpredictable.
My goal is to raise at least $1000 to support the MS foundation and this trip. I’d like to invite you to be a part of this experience, not by pedaling, (though you’re more than welcome), but by sponsoring me. I am in need of sponsors who can support by making a tax deductible donation. I want to try to make a difference in the fight against multiple sclerosis. I hope I can count on you to help me reach my goal and make a difference in the lives of those affected by MS.

Foxy G's Den of i-KNIT-quity tells her story in her blog
To me, Back to School means that summer is over, and usually way too quickly. While it's fabulous sleeping with open windows instead of being closed up in air conditioning, I'm glad to have had a chance to go to Michigan for a long weekend. The adventures from that story will be another blog post.
At this time of year, I love that school supplies and clothes are on sale. My parents would take me shopping for new school clothes when I was a little girl. The pleated wool skirts I used to wear are back in fashion.
Doll pleated wool skirt
I'm one of those people who can spend an hour in an office supply store. Along with beads and findings, I could probably open a shop myself for spiral notebooks and 2-pocket folders. Now with my mailing supplies, stickers, labels, etc., it's a wonderland for me...
Back to school means cute accessories, too. Here's some hair bling - hair clips that I made. I take custom orders for different bead colors, but I love this blue.
Another fun item that I made are these ladybug earringson sterling silver chains
Here's a Big Box of Crayons Necklace by Etsytwitter teammate, Suzanne.
Jen made this Back to School Coffee Cozy
Sandi created this handpainted tote bag
And, any of FoxyGKnits items work for fall or winter, her handknitted scarves look so warm.
I hope you enjoy handmade Back to School Shopping with the EtsyTwitter Team.
