Cycling Kokopelli SVG

Our family loves Kokopelli and Mountain biking. So, it was only fitting to see this image in downtown Moab, Utah. From the photograph I made an SVG and cut it out on vinyl and put it on the back of my jeep.

You can download the SVG Here.

Looking for Food Prep.

I am still looking for someone that would like to provide food at my retreats. This could be a great opportunity for an Epicure Consultant to not only sell food made with the products but sell the products as well. If you know anyone that may be interested please let me know. Cathy 403-819-2054
