Calling All Sistah's Blog Hop - My Personal 30 in 30 Days Challenge

Hi Folks! For this month's breast cancer hop I really wanted to do something that mattered. Knowing myself, I probably wouldn't get around to sending a "check yourself" card to anyone (I am so behind on the birthdays as it is!!) I also started thinking of how I remember to check myself. A long time ago someone told me to put a sticky note reminder on my box of tampons. A place that I without a doubt visit every 28 days.

That's it! I wanted to share that tip with others.


  
Instead of a sticky note (c'mon, we're crafters for Heaven's sake!!) I die cut the Hope Fri-Die, added the reminder messages from the Calling All Sistahs stamp set, and attached a clothespin to the back of it all.



Now the recipient can clip this to her tampon box and have a pretty, visual reminder to check herself. If the recipient no longer has a need for such boxes like this, she can clip it to anything inside her linen closet, or anywhere else that she'd see on a monthly basis.

I love that these are SO EASY and SO QUICK to make. I could whip out a ton of these!
 

 
Looking at my calendar, I figured I would see at least 30 different women between now and April 17th. So I issued myself a challenge: Pass these out to 30 beautiful women in my life in the next 30 days. I have a feeling this will be easier than I think. Tomorrow I'm hosting 10 women for a bible group. There are PTO meetings, afternoons in the park, neighbors to see, Bunco night, so many different places filled with women. Some are my best friends, some I've only recently met, but it doesn't really matter because we're all in this together!!



Let's go get something started!!



The next lovely lady in this hop is Laura. If you'd like to start at the beginning, hop on over to CASual Fridays Stamps.

Now don't forget to check yourself!

  4. Great idea! Love it as a clip or a magnet. Thanks for all you do! Great idea! My sister was diagnosed last May with Stage 2 Breast cancer, had 12 rounds of chemo, a lumpectomy, and radiation. Today, she is a survivor and is cancer free. Sharing your link with all my "sistahs" too.
