Pink Ribbon Packaging

One of my favorite jewelry items to make is breast cancer awareness jewelry.  My customers will usually let me know who they are purchasing it for and it touches my heart to know that it's a way for someone to show a cancer patient they care.  

Now all breast cancer awareness jewelry in my ETSY shop will come packaged in a pretty pink ribbon pouch.  Fellow ETSY artist Janie made these for me and I think they're the perfect finishing touch!  Janie has a lot of other bags and items in her shop, so stop by and check them out!  Here is the link to her shop:  jmaeson's creations.

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo this weekend, here's my go-to guacamole recipe.  It's a great recipe that can be adapted to however many avocados you have.  Guacamole sure doesn't photograph well!  But I wanted to show off my new guacamole bowl from San Antonio :)

2 avocados
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small tomato (or a handful of grape tomatoes) chopped
1 lime, juiced
kosher salt and pepper

Slice avocados in half; remove pits and scoop avocado flesh into a large bowl and mash. Add garlic and season with lime juice, salt and pepper.  Mix until well combined.

Optional add-ins:
chopped tomato
chopped onion
black beans
