When I made the decision not to work on any projects for ACS Stitching for a Cure project this year, I was afraid I would lose touch with all of you who have meant so much to me. Luckily for the most part, that has not happened. I have kept up with you all through your blogs, and FB.
I have thought a lot about you here lately. I have been so blessed with such good friends. I still can't believe how all of you responded to my request to help and sent such beautiful ornaments and quilt squares. We made such a difference in so many lives.
I was also looking at the beautiful quilt and pillow that many of you made for me. It is too hot to even think about wrapping up in it, but I am looking really forward to cooler days when I can. It is so pretty and it was such a surprise when I received it. Thank you again to all of you.
Next year I will be diving into more projects, both for juvenile diabetes and for ACS. And I will be looking to all of you to help.
I hope you know how much you all mean to me. You are truly God's special gifts!

Hello All! This is Donna's daughter Jennifer. My mom said it would be OK to post this here so I hope it's OK with you all as well. As you all probably are aware, Stitching for a Cure switched to raising money for Juvenile Diabetes this year. My son, Craig, has Type 1 Diabetes and was diagnosed on March 23, 2011. I am running a small fundraiser to raise money for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).

I am selling Juice Gems (lip glosses). They are made by mark. the cosmetics and fashion company I work for. They sell for $6.50 a piece and $2.00 off the sale of each one will be donated to JDRF. My goal is to sell 50 lipglosses and raise $100 for JDRF.

The Juice Gems are berry and fruit flavored lipglosses with a hint of color. Perfect for any girl or woman even if they don't wear make-up. Think of them as gifts for teachers (back to school), daughters/granddaughters, anyone you know! You'll be getting them a cute, affordable gift and helping a great cause at the same time!

Thank you all for listening to me! I hope you have a great day!
