Miss A Columnist

Amanda Ivarra is a graduate of Texas A&M University. After graduating with a degree in Health, she moved to Austin and started working for a national non-profit organization. She spent 5 years coordinating community events and programs. After leaving the organization, she started to focus on her creative pursuits. Currently, she is working on developing her own jewelry line. Writing has always been a hobby for Amanda. For most of her life, she’s kept journals. It wasn’t until recently that she decided to take her writing public and began blogging and guest blogging. The one thing this girl can’t live without is music. Not really one to sing or play an instrument, she just loves music. Perhaps, it’s the songwriting that she admires so much or a good beat that she can dance to. Whether she’s attending a concert with friends, hanging out with the guys watching sports, volunteering in the community, hiking or visiting the newest places in town, Amanda lives to enjoy life. But, nothing brings more joy to her than being able to make someone smile or laugh!

Wondercraft’s Beef & Cake Event To Benefit Austin Pets Alive

The WonderCraft is out to help their girl, Stella, find a man.  Stella is an airstream trailer, and The WonderCraft’s mobile crafting studio.  She attends many local craft and fashion events as well as private parties where friends gather to shop or participate in DIY projects.

In her attempt to find a man, she needed the help of her friends.  They conducted the Stella Needs a Man Talent Search in hopes of finding a man who shares her love for making things.  They’ve narrowed down their search to 7 men who might be right for Stella.  Now they need your help in deciding which guy is “the one” for her.

You can vote for your favorite  on Saturday, February 11th at The WonderCraft’s Beef & Cake event. One lucky man will be chosen to assist Stella in making crafting more male-friendly and advising her on make and take concepts and events.

Stella won’t be the only one who benefits from this event.  Man’s best friend will too.  This event will benefit Austin Pets Alive!, a local organization dedicated to providing the resources, education and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals.

Attendees may purchase raffle tickets at the event.  They will have a chance to walk away with one of many fabulous gifts from local businesses such as Heywood Hotel, Rollerfeet Soda and Jack & Adams Bicycles.  Not only will ticket purchases be donated to the non-profit organization, but attendees will also receive an extra vote for every ticket purchased.

While at the event guests can enjoy a variety of activities and treats including on-site instructional DIY projects (get there early), beef sliders and cake courtesy of  Blue Note Bakery, cocktails provided by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Rollerfeet Soda, beer from Saint Arnold Brewing Company, photo booth opportunities provided by Lucy Blue Studio, a dance party featuring DJ Hot Britches (a.k.a. BEEF!) and the opportunity to purchase handmade items from more than 30 local artisans and crafters.  Ten percent of all sales will benefit Austin Pets Alive!, and customers will receive an extra vote for every dollar spent.

Ladies, are you ready to meet the finalists?!

WHEN: Saturday, February 11, 2012 from 6 pm until 10 pm
