The Hope Collection

Many of our lives, or the lives of those we love, have been touched by illness. In particular, cancer has sounded its deafening roar throughout my own immediate and extended family.
My latest Etsy collection honours those friends and family who have lost their courageous battles, as well as celebrates the survivors among us. Each piece literally tells the story of the joyous life we live, the precious love we are surrounded with, the faith that keeps us going, and our hopes for a cure.

My mom will be participating in the Cancer Foundation's "Relay For Life" fundraiser on June 6, and every member of her team will be receiving one of 5 styles of a pendant to commemorate the event.

Please join me in wishing them success in their fundraiser, and in their cause to find a cure!

Beautiful work and I'm sure the participants will appreciate it.

You are my RAK winner. Email me your addy to get your book on knitting or you can send me a title and I will see if I can get at a new used bookstore find.

Have a nice day!

That is just such a lovely idea and beautifully executed.

Wow what a wonderful idea, and great thing you are doing. I have lost quite a few wonderful people to this awful disease, and I admire people who go out of their way to help others. You should be so proud of yourself, you are a great person!
