Well, day 4 of the blog, and I'm already falling behind. Of course, I had a good excuse today since I was out of the house most of the day, and then we had company. :)
As far as business goes.. today was spent brainstorming "Cancer Bracelets". I've had several ideas rattling around in the vast empty acreage of my mind for a while now, concerning Ribbon Bracelets/Necklaces/Bookthongs. You know... those little ribbons people love so much that change their colors depending on their meanings? This is.. similar, but a little bit different. Instead of "Awareness", we're looking for "Support" and "Hope". Another one of Sandy's co workers said that it would be ok if we made several cancer related items to sell at the front desk of her office, for patients to buy. You see, Sandy works for an Oncologist, which is a Dr. that specializes in Cancer (and all of it's associated things).
So the goal is to make bracelets, or light weight necklaces, or key chains, or... or.. whatever that just happens to give the patients, or their family, or friends some kind of... hope. Something to make them happy. Something for them to concentrate on when they have their chemo therapies, or are feeling sick, or are just having a really bad day. Something to prove that they are a survivor, or something to give them the strength to live another day, another hour, another minute. I want to find materials that are light weight, and moderately inexpensive so that I can offer them for a very low price... and who knows; if they work out, maybe I'll donate a portion of each one. We'll just have to see. :)
