It was another exciting makeover! The votes have been tallied
and reconciled and our 2011 winner is...
Katie was nominated with the following kind words:
Katie is a loving, thoughtful and hard-working single mom. She
has two children, one who is a busy soccer player and the other who
is a growing girl. She works cleaning homes while attending school
at Lane Community College for an engineering degree. Her goal is to
make a better living for her family and she strives hard to do it
earning honors in her school work. (Most of her work is done while
having to miss needed sleep). Last year her father died from a
brain tumor. Her year has been a challenge. She is always there as
a friend, and has little time to herself. I would like to see her
receive a makeover because she could use time to pamper herself and
be acknowledged for all that she does on her own and for her
children and friends.
Congratulations, Katie! Stay tuned for updates on Katie's
makeover, and look for her to appear on the cover of the June/July
Celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 23rd at Ratatouille Restaurant,
