Please help find this young man!

Devon Hollahan // Desaparecido - Missing!!

I read this and a plea to post it. I hope in some small way, this may help bring a happy ending. Please, share this post, pass this around!

Devon

DEVON HOLLAHAN - Can you Help
Yesterday at 9:16pm
My son, Devon Hollahan, disappeared in Frankfurt, Germany on Saturday,
November 21st at approximately 3AM, local time. Devon and his friend, Josh
Friedman, had taken a train from Prague, where they both live and work, on
Friday, the 20th to attend a concert in Frankfurt and to stay for the
remainder of the weekend. Both Josh and Devon had purchased round-trip
train tickets.

According to Josh, they had enjoyed the concert, attended the "after party",
and had taken a cab to central Frankfurt to look for their hostel. They had
been drinking. Beer, mostly and, according to Josh, they were "tipsy", but
not inebriated. After looking for several minutes, Josh stepped away from
Devon to ask a couple of bystanders for directions. When he turned around,
Devon was nowhere to be seen. After attempting to text and phone Devon
numerous times, Josh gave up and went to the hostel. The following morning,
he checked with the hostel to see if Devon had checked in on his own and
found out he had not. He also checked a couple of other nearby hostels to
no avail. At some point Saturday, Josh contacted the Frankfurt police and
the US Consulate to file a missing person report. He waited for Devon at
the train station at the appointed departure time, but Devon never showed
up.

Josh called me from Prague at around 3PM MST to give me the news.

We have German-speaking friends who called the Frankfurt Police to consider
options, but the police weren't terribly receptive. At 12:30 AM, Monday
morning, I called the US Consulate and spoke to Franz Seitz who was already
familiar with the case. We spoke for 30 minutes. Mr. Seitz was very
receptive and helpful. We discussed Devon's credit card activity, which
wasn't (and still isn't) unusual. He had made 2 stops at ATMs in addition
to purchasing train tickets in Prague - nothing since. Early this morning,
I received an email from Mr. Seitz indicating the had checked ambulance
services, hospitals and jails with no results. I believe the consulate has
spoken to Mr. Friedman at least once and maybe twice.

I am obviously concerned for my son. Always an independent soul, he is also
responsible and diligent. This type of behavior is totally out of
character.

Devon Hollahan is 22 years old, 6 feet tall and weighs approximately 150
pounds. When last seen, Devon was wearing a green, plaid shirt, jeans, a
black work jacket (sport coat?) and a tan cap. He was last seen in the
vicinity of the Taunusalange metro station in central Frankfurt. Pictures
are attached.

I can be contacted at 602-571-4547 (cell) or email
Franz Seitz at the US Consulate, Frankfurt: 011-49-69-7535-2516 (office) or
011-49-175-726-8343 (cell)
Josh Freidman, Prague: 011-420-773-695-268 (cell)

Thank you for your help,

Jeff Hollahan

There are good people in Michigan!

WOW!! It's a Sunday evening and our doorbell rings at 8:30pm... we aren't expecting anyone... I answer the door to see two teenagers holding a wallet. They open it up and ask if this the right house as it wouldn't come up on their GP device and it isn't listed on mapquest!
Yup, it was the correct house as it was my husband's wallet that he left at the park today, while with our youngest, her friend and our dog. How cool is that? Sure wish I had some money to give them as a reward for doing the right thing! What was I thinking? I had just baked a pie and I should have asked them in for a slice as a thank you. There are still good people in this world! Thank you Thomas and Kaylynn!

Winner of My Customer Survey Announced!

Two weeks ago, I sent a survey to all my customers asking them to reply by Friday the 13th (of November) for a chance to win FREE merchandise from the Holiday Mini Catalog or the Idea Book & Catalog!

Halloween Coffins!

I had so much fun making these coffins! I used Woodgrain background with My Favorite Things as the coffin handles and made a couple versions of the casket lid using Batty for You and Black & White DSP from the Holiday Mini! They turned out great. I really lucked out when I found these skeleton gummies at the dollar store, too! I loaded the caskets/coffins with gummy worms, eyeballs, and/or the gummy skeletons and passed them out to some fun people! I know they liked them and it was really fun sharing a cool project like this!



Shake, Shake, Shimmer Paint!



I had fun with my friends experimenting with differ
ent ways to use Shimmer Paint (Champagne, Frost White & Platinum) this past week! Here are some fun shots of the ladies and some of our completed projects!

Love the Shimmer Paint !!



Well, my least favorite thing to do is to HAVE TO make a sympathy card. However,Stampin' Up has a great many stamp sets and tools to do a wonderful job. I started out with a simple card but knew it wasn't quite enough. I used Strength and Refuge stamp set with Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla & Always Artichoke cardstocks along with matching ink pads with Certainly Celery ink, stamped off, for the cross!!! Here's my first card that needed more:






I added some coordinating ribbon (Mellow Moss taffeta) and also tried a new technique with the Shimmer Paint!! I added 12 drops of Champagne Shimmer Paint to an extra spray mist bottle that I poured 3/4 full of rubbing alcohol. I gave it a good shake then sprayed it all over the background cardstock and VOILA' it's a beautiful card!!


Here's the finished product! It's so much nicer than the simple card I started with! What do you think?

Mrs. Big Shot's Quilt

I belong to a couple Stampin' Up demonstrator groups that give me great inspiration! I have to brag for Loni Spendlove who used her Big Shot to make this FABULOUS quilt!!
I'm thrilled that she has given me permission to share th
is "work of heart" with you!!!



Isn't this gorgeous? Here's a close up shot for detail:


Thank you, Loni, for allowing me to post this on my blog. Anyone who wants to see Loni's blog with the details can do so here... http://squeezeyourcreativejuice.blogspot.com/2009/10/sew-sew-cute.html

Time for me to get Inkin' a latte!

Shelli Gardner in Cincinnati!

I was most honored that I could get another photo with Shelli Gardner, co-founder of Stampin' Up!


"To love what we do and share what we love... in this we make a difference."

Cincinnati Regional with Stampin' Up!

I recently attended Stampin' Up!'s regional seminar in Cincinnati and it was the best regional seminar yet! I was thrilled to see Shelli there again, in person! The demonstrations, discussions and WOWs were motivating! I had a blast with two of my dear SU friends who are always keeping me laughing! I also got to meet a few new demonstrators and I enjoyed that, too!




On the left is Mary Jo and Chris displaying one of the make & takes we got to make from the Berry Christmas stamp set we received for attending! Yup, they gave it to us along with five packages of make-n-take projects!!




This photo on the right is Carrie Cudney who did a great job presenting
for us! These are the projects she made...





Here we are together... Carrie and Keri!
:)






This is Julie, Heidi and Mary Jo with whom I shared a lot of laughs! Stampin' Up! has some wonderful people representing them!




Here are my partners in crime... my roomies = Chris & Nancy!!
Oh the stories we could share!

Diva night is a casual, productive as well as informative meeting with my dear family of SU demonstrators. We made this card at Diva night using Wings of Friendship (Level 2 hostess set). We popped up the bird and flowers as well as the Teeny Tiny Wishes label. Isn't it beautiful?

This is Coach Heather, whose coaching job has changed just a little since she had her first baby in May, this year! She has created a beautiful scrapbook of her precious baby and it is wonderful!


Thanks to both of you for giving me permission to put you on my blog and bragging about you!!

I am always touched and excited to see the creative projects that my friends share with me. I know they feel great about making these wonderful treasures and I do, too!

This is Coach Sam, who has been collecting these journals for a while now, in preparation of her new cheer team! She personalized each and every one of these journals and no two are alike! Aren't they great?

You will not have to worry about these things if you are a member of my "Stamp Camp" (hostess club)!!! Enjoy a "Girl's Night Out" once a month, in my home (so you don't have to clean and worry about enough room), with a group of wonderful ladies who love Stampin' Up!

Jumble Alphabet In Color!


This is my own creation! I actually saw a card in a magazine and thought to myself, I can re-create this with my own items. I used Jumble Alphabet, Sincere Salutations with a couple of the new In Colors! What fun! Hope you like it!


Best Wishes to Silvia!


I don't get to "play" with these great demonstrators very often, but when I do, it's always fun! Tonight we had a production line going to make a couple sample cards using the new stamp sets in the IBC coming out July 1st. Ronnie was there and I haven't seen her in a long time! She's so talented (as with each of the ladies this evening)! Silvia is heading back to Germany in July, so this was a celebration of "so longs" for her. I wish her well in her homeland and will miss her a ton! Here's Ronnie, Chris, me (back row), Silvia & Michelle (front row). Missing are Caroline, Linda & Nancy (photographer).

New In Colors!


Shhhhh! I made these for a few of my customers who will be receiving the Stampin' Up! new Idea Book & Catalog being released on July 1st for FREE! They are each part of my hostess club that meets once a month for a year. We have a blast making new and exciting projects together with Stampin' Up items! These are wonderful ladies who are dear friends of mine, as well! I'm so blessed.

These are the new In Colors for 2009 - 2010. Aren't they sweet? I used a new stamp set, the new In Colors and also the ribbon that will be coming out on July 1st! I'll be sharing more as I make up samples! I'm having a lot of fun with the new items and also sad to see some of my favorites moving out to make room for more new! Don't miss out on ordering those items that are retiring and will no longer be available after June 30th! You can place an online order or place an order directly with me! As always, please ask me any questions you may have. I am your personal, creative coach!

Graduation Time!


I always like to make a "personalized" graduation card. We are attending lots of graduation parties this month and next and here's one for Shrine High School for their colors. This was CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from Tina Sieben, a talented demonstrator who shares her designs with us on a demo only group! Thanks Tina!
