YANA (You Are Not Alone) is a non-profit agency that raises money for families that incur expenses while their child is undergoing medical treatment in Vancouver. Every November they hold their major fundraiser at the Driftwood Mall in Courtenay. This year I purchased a tree and decorated it with, you guessed it: clutter! Check out the tree to the right...

Anyone who has read my book, Clutter's Dirty Secret, will recognize this tree. It is decorated with dozens of old rosettes from my childhood (I competed in equestrian events across Southern Ontario for several years). Not wanting to throw them out, and with no room to display them, I 're-purposed' them and passed them along to another horsey-person.
