Today I am honored to be participating in the Pink Ribbon Warrior Woman Blog Hop in honor of all women who have had, currently have, or ever will have breast cancer. Big thanks to Linda Ledbetter for coordinating this blog hop - Linda - you ROCK.
(read to the end - there is blog candy involved!!!)
We're celebrating the healing journey of our dear friend, Sherry Goodloe, who's recovering from her recent surgery, and has just learned that she won't have to endure chemo or radiation! Sherry is our official Warrior Woman Muse for this hop, and is someone we all love and admire. Of course, so many of our friends and loved ones-- if not we ourselves-- have faced breast cancer, and our art is intended to honor each and every woman who has, is, or ever will fight this battle.
In honor of my good friend Mary, who was recently diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and just began 20 weeks of chemo last week, I made this piece as a small way to support her on this incredibly difficult journey. I'll be giving it to her at work today. (Yes.... she's still working! So dedicated...) I'll share a little more about her story in the Flickr Group (details below).

Submissions will be accepted through October 30, and on October 31, our Warrior Woman muse, Sherry, will choose a winner who will receive an amazing prize package, courtesy of our sponsor, the incredibly generous DAISY at eclectic Paperie. This is the prize package from Daisy - remember - you have to post a picture of your project in the Flickr group to be eligible for this prize.
if you're interested in a chance to win a prize package from my personal *stash*... please leave a comment on this post - I will use the random number generator to pick a winner on October 31st! This is what you could win:
|Small silver birdcage charm, rock candy crackle paint, peeled paint & rock candy distress stickles, Claudine Hellmuth's multi medium (matte), 3 teeny tiny glass vials, and a necklace I made using the Dichroic Illusions technique on Tim's 2nd DVD|
Hugs to all!
