About Minks and Tinsel

Almost a year ago, my Ma was diagnosed with breast cancer, it was her second one within the last 7 years. Needless to say, I felt like life punched me right on the chest. During the week of her Mastectomy, I stayed home to care for her for seven consecutive days.

Without cable or internet, boredom was unbearable, not only for me, but especially to my Ma who'd been out of work the last four months. All we had was Bossa Nova and our imagination. Out of dire desperation of some sort of entertainment, I rummaged through her "random box" and found balls of yarn and scraps of nifty fabrics. Despite her limited mobility, we managed to create delightful pieces together including scarves and fabric necklaces. Hours and days went by with ease, amusement and a new found endeavor, all of a sudden it felt like everything was going to be okay
.
And so it turns out that way, for now at least. She's doing much better, and I've taken up a new venture, Minks and TInsel, a collection of fabric accessories dedicated to Vida, my Ma. I guess in times of despair and darkness, there is still beauty where you seek it.

As a way to give back, I will be donating 5% of my earnings to Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help find the cure for Breast Cancer.

Here is where you'll find my "pieces of hope".

    I'm an Interior Designer by day. When not near a computer, I'm either running, eating, or making jewelry (with a glass of wine of course!) I love to travel, listen to Bossa Nova & consume unhealthy portions of Tabasco & Greek Olive Oil.
