Team Toni (& some very special sparkle)

The beautiful soul you see above was a sister … a daughter … a friend … and the world to all who loved her. Her name was Toni, and she sadly passed away due to a heroin overdose this past May.

As you can imagine, her family and friends were devastated, but through their tears, they want to turn their tragedy into hope and help for others suffering with the disease of addiction.

Addiction is an epidemic unlike any other that our country has faced, and Toni’s family is on a mission to bring a voice and face to so many people that are losing their battle to this disease.

Please take a look at this very special logo we at Sparkle Plenty Designs created for TEAM TONI in sparkling rhinestones. The art was created by Toni herself — her family used her handwriting from a card she wrote to them just six weeks before she died. As a family, they (TEAM TONI) promise to speak about the dangers and challenges associated with drug abuse, but also the stigma that goes along with it that is just as deadly.

Team Toni will keep Toni’s voice alive, and hopefully help or even SAVE someone who suffers the same way as she did. We were so very happy to hear the bling shirts were a PERFECT fit, because Toni’s smile always had sparkle, and we know her family will never let that fade.

Having her handwriting to create this very special logo is just a personal reminder that every life is valuable. Please help TEAM TONI by learning more HERE.

Arbor House B & B (Napa, CA) Takes the Spotlight

Let’s head to Napa Valley in today’s Sparkle Spotlight!

This past Spring, Andrew and Lee of Sparkle Plenty Designs visited beautiful Napa Valley and stayed at a wonderful B&B called The Arbor Guest House.
Now, we’re happy to be featuring them in our sparkle spotlight – check out their gorgeous rhinestone logo-wear — and by the way, we highly recommended booking a stay at Arbor House if you head out to Napa!


Please tell us a little bit about you & your business.

The Arbor Guest House is a 5 room Bed & Breakfast in Napa, CA. We are a family run Bed & Breakfast and enjoy hosting guests.

What do you enjoy the most about running a bed & breakfast:
Meeting people from all over the world.

— and the hardest thing?
There is nothing hard about running a Bed & Breakfast when you enjoy what you’re doing like we do.

What’s your favorite spot or way to enjoy Napa?
Sitting with a glass of wine anywhere in the Napa Valley.

If you had to open a B&B in another state, where would you go?

We couldn’t imagine leaving the Napa Valley, but if we had to open a Bed & breakfast in another state it would be Hawaii.

And, of course, tell us your thoughts on your new bling-wear ?
We love our bling wear and how our logo shines! We have received so many compliments from our guests.

Regards,
Dan & Candy

A Ruff Life Rescue in the Sparkle Spotlight

We at Sparkle Plenty love animals — especially dogs — so we love sharing A Ruff Life Rescue with you.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your organization/business
My name is Kristin Mercer, the co founder of it’s A Ruff Life Rescue. I’m an accountant by day and dog rescuer by night :) . It’s A Ruff Life was formed in 2013. We are an all breed rescue that pulls dogs from high kill shelter all over the country. We also transport the dogs ourselves. We have a group of volunteers That drive to places like Georgia and South Carolina to pick up the dogs and deliver them to our home base in Hamilton, NJ. Our motto is, “Turning Ruff beginnings Into Happy Endings.” We have a great group of fosters in NJ and PA that help rehab, train, and love on the dogs, in order to get them ready for their forever homes.

YOU CAN DONATE HERE

How was your recent RUFF LIFE fundraising dinner?
The Spay-Ghetti and No Balls fundraiser was a huge success. Our volunteers worked their butts off to solicit donations that were auctioned off to help raise money for spaying, neutering, and our vet bills. The Mardi Gras themed event was a huge hit, but more importantly, we were able to share a little about what we do and why we do it. One of the shelters we pull from, has a 50% kill rate.. this means that one out of every two dogs that walk in the door, never gets a second chance and dies. This is why it’s so important that people are educated on the importance of spaying and neutering.

What made you decide to do bling shirts, and what was the reaction when people saw them?
We are always looking for new merchandise and lets face it, what other rescue has bling shirts?
We think they look awesome and now people can support the rescue in style. Everyone loves the new shirts, but most especially our fosters.

Since you are a dog rescue group, feel free to share a humorous story?
There are so many funny and crazy stories, that we could probably write a book, but here’s one of the funnier ones..
We had pulled a litter of pups and when we divided them up to go to their respective fosters, we totally missed the fact that one of the pups was a boy, and not a girl. funnier yet, the foster never even noticed. It wasn’t until the pup was adopted and the adopter called. Long story short, the adopters were fine with it, loved the pup regardless, they just had to rename the pup.

How many furkids do you have?
I have 3 chihuahuas, 3 pugs and a resident Pit bull foster.

Any upcoming fundraisers?
Our next fundraiser is April 9th at the Jackson Pet Valu. We will be hosting doggy pics with the Easter Bunny.

Any parting words?
I would encourage everyone that loves dogs to give fostering a shot. I can’t tell you in words how rewarding it is. The more fosters we have the more lives can be saved. If anyone is interested in signing up, send us an email at aruffliferescue@gmail.com

Check out our sparkle site and be sure to visit A Ruff Life Rescue.

ALPHA FEMALES rule!

Today we’re checking in with the artsy and fabulous Carley Holtsinger Sparkle-Diva.com

Carley, please share the reason for this cool design?

The idea came to me a few years ago when someone called me an alpha female. Knowing that it was true, I decided to hand bedazzle a sparkly t-shirt proudly displaying “ALPHA FEMALE” across the chest.

— and the bling?
Being that my alter ego is Sparkle Diva, there was no other option but bling!

Short & sweet, and totally AWESOME!
Please be sure to check out her site, follow her at on INSTAGRAM and grab one of those ALPHA FEMALE ts!
