Here is a message from Jamie, the owner: "It's been an amazing couple of years with Tickled Pink. As a mom, wife and owner of another small business, I decided I need to balance my life and let something go. Tickled Pink has been more successful than We could've imagined. We have decided to sell Tickled Pink; We are looking for someone that can put their heart, time and energy into it. Please pass this on to anyone you know that may be looking to own their own turnkey business. We will be booking parties and staying open until we find the perfect fit."

Local Bothell Girl Collecting Cans for a Scholarship Needs Your Help!

Maddy Dalgarn is a University of Washington-Bothell student striving to make a change for the endangered marine mammals and sea turtles in our oceans. She has grown up in Bothell, graduated Bothell High School and currently works as a Barista at the Village Bean in Country Village. When she is not studying towards a degree in Biology, she enjoys spending time with her horse or going for long walks with her dogs along the Burke-Gilman trail.  

Maddy Val from Bothell is raising money to help animals.From a young age Maddy has always had a strong passion for the well being of animals. During a family trip to Hawaii, Maddy fell in love with the sea turtles grace and beauty. She visited the Maui Ocean center and learned about their danger of extinction. She wants to bring awareness to the public about how to help and conserve these beautiful creatures. Maddy has the opportunity to go to New York and work with the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation to help rehabilitate marine mammals and sea turtles. The winter is the busiest time of the year in that area, because the Foundation brings in cold stunned Sea Turtles to help nurse back to health and release in the early summer.  While there Maddy will be responsible for the care of all in house animals and will help with the rescue and release of seals, dolphins and sea turtles.

In order to accomplish this goal Maddy is participating in a scholarship contest through Dosomething.org to collect cans to recycle. Every 50 cans she collects give her one more entry in a drawing to win $4000, that will go towards housing for six months in New York. Please drop off any aluminum cans or direct donations at the Village Bean in Country Village by December 12th. Thank you for your support!

Join with Keepsake Cottage and Sew Pillowcases for Sick Kids

Keepsake Cottage Fabrics in Bothell Washington.On November 17, Bothell's favorite fabric store, Keepsake Cottage is hosting a ConKerr Cancer sewing event from 11am-5pm to benefit kids that have Cancer and other life threatening diseases. Keepsake Cottage Fabrics has already donated a sizable amount of funds to the organization, now they are going to "sew for the cause". Each year 44,000 children across North America are treated for cancer while thousands more experience life-changing illnesses and injuries. A hospital stay is a frightening experience for adults, and even more so for young children. Beyond the obvious medical fears and difficulties, a sterile hospital room lacks the comfort and warmth of home.

Keepsake Cottage in Bothell supports ConKerr Cancer, a movement to sew pillowcases for sick kidsThousands of ConKerr Cancer volunteers in 120 cities dedicate themselves to brightening these children’s lives through the simple act of sewing a bright, cheery pillowcase. As a result of their love and generosity, ConKerr Cancer has delivered more than 670,000 pillowcases in just six years to 250 hospitals throughout the country, creating ‘miles of pillowcase smiles’ for the children and their parents. In addition, ConKerr volunteers visit hospitals to sew with the children, breaking up the monotony of long, frightening hospital stays.

Come out and join your fellow Bothell sewers and spend some time supporting a great cause. The event will be held in the Keepsake Cottage workshop, which is located in the rear of Country Village Shops.

Connect with Keepsake Cottage on their Facebook page or give Julie's team a call at: (425) 486-3483
