'Hope You Can Cling To' starts today!

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut


Happy Monday to ya! Today starts the 'Hope You Can Cling To' challenges over at Split Coast Stampers. If you aren't familiar with these, for the entire month of October, a new challenge (or sometimes several!) will be released all based on the theme of breast cancer support and encouragement. Cards are made to send to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas. I have played along every year since it started, but obviously this year has an even different meaning to me.

I want to tell all of you that this year not only am I playing along as a participant, but I am honored (and do I ever mean honored!!!) to be a challenge hostess! I am the first hostess to participate who is undergoing breast cancer treatment while during HYCCT. of course I don't even begin to measure up talent-wise with all of the other hostesses. man oh man, that list reads like royalty! ;) I am truly at the bottom of the totem pole, but so thrilled to be a part.

Please stop over when you get a chance, and hopefully play along. Thankfully I was able to get a few cards made before my radiation treatments started. no crafties seem to be going on these days, as I feel pretty pukey and tired most days. oh well. it won't last forever, thank goodness. ;) enjoy your week and listen for the birds' songs! :)

Jen, so good to see you post again and congrats on being a challenge hostess! So sorry to hear that you are feeling punk; just rest when you need to and try to see yourself healing a bit more each day. You are in my thoughts and prayers, as you are in so many others.
Extra giant hugs, Penny

Praying for you, Jen, as I do everytime I come to your blog. Please keep us updated (even on the pukey days, so we know how to pray). God bless you.
