Take Note

Hello Bloggers!  
I hope this post finds everyone enjoying lots of chocolate bunny ears and marshmallow peeps :). 

It is exciting to announce that Stamp to Cope is prepping for a  breast cancer awareness opportunity coming next week. I have been invited to speak at a cancer fundraising event with an anticipated  audience of over 100 women. We are looking forward to sharing survivor stories and reaching out to the newly diagnosed.  The event planner is putting together gift bags for the attendees and asked if I would create an item that could be included.  The guidelines presented a little challenge...make sure your organization's name is on the item and align it with the items already donated by other sponsors such as pens, pencils, stickers, highlighters, etc. In keeping with the guidelines and the breast cancer theme, I ended up creating mini notepads for journalling the journey or taking note of  important information. (Not everyone has gone electronic yet ;)) The best part was the ability to recycle scraps of cardstock and use stamps in a whole new way. It was definitely out of my card making comfort zone, but lots of fun.  I am going to work on some bookmarks next...stay tuned.  Have a super week and thanks for all the support!  

Blessings, Jeannette
