BIG Announcement

I've been sitting on some pretty exciting news and today I finally get to share it with you!  Some of you may remember me telling you about the design team call for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  Clicky here and here if you want to read all about it.  I decided to give it a try and applied for a position.  

The application asked for several things, one of them was an answer to the question: "Why are you applying?"  Of course I mentioned how much I love CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, and would jump at the opportunity to work with Michele and her girl Fridays design team.    But, then I mentioned something that was on my heart: The biggest reason I want to join your team though is to be a part of your Calling All Sistahs campaign.  As you know, your story touched my heart and I have jumped whole-heartedly into the idea of reminding our sistahs to "check yo-self".  What you don't know is how your story has impacted me personally.  I would love the opportunity to share that story...


Guess what?!!!!  Within 48 hours I had an offer to do something AH-MAY-ZING with Michele!  She asked me to help her run the Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop so that she can include even more people and reach even more sistahs!  She told me to take as much time as I needed to decide.  It took me one flat second to reply YES! YES! YES!   I didn't even know what it would entail, but I already knew I wanted to be a part of it.  My heart's desire is that nobody would ever have to suffer and die from breast cancer again.  Until there is a cure, early detection is still the best first line of defense.   There is also power in women joining together to take charge of our health.  

You can read my announcement on the CAS-ual Fridays blog HERE.  Thank you so much, Michele, for asking me to help in your great cause.   I look forward to working with you and your team to make this campaign grow!   If you are here from the CAS-ual Fridays blog and want to see my Calling All Sistahs posts, I'll list them below.   If you are new to the Calling All Sistahs campaign, I'll include that link too.

I'm so happy for you! You'll be great on the Friday team, and I know you really care about this issue, and for obvious reasons. My mother was not a breast cancer survivor, and it has impacted my whole life. She died when I was nine. She was only 45. I held my breath, figuratively, until I'd passed my 45th birthday. Then I discovered that both my older and younger sisters also didn't expect to pass that day. Cancer is a terrible thing, and I pray for a cure, but you're right. Early detection is the key to survival.
