Avon Walk for Breast Cancer

If you're a woman, there's a 1 in 9 chance that you'll end up with breast cancer someday. That's something to think about, seriously. One of my dearest friends recently went through a terrible time with breast cancer, including debilitating chemotherapy and loss of all of her hair. Thankfully, she is alive and recovering well. Fighting breast cancer is a cause dear to my heart.

KelliRene, who has KelliRene Designs on Etsy, is raising funds for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. We all know someone who has fought this terrible disease, and some who haven't won the fight. I've made a donation to sponsor her walk. Others, notably in the Etsy Green and Clean Guild, are donating part of their shop earnings to this cause. I'm impressed by KelliRene's determination and spirit. I hope you will consider making a donation to her walk too.

Yesterday I began tweaking my 3D character, Mitsouko. Here's a little peek at how she's shaping up.

Very early tomorrow morning my 18 year old daughter is leaving for New York City to march with her high school band in the St. Patrick's Day Parade. The kids won't be back until Tuesday night. I'm excited for her, but 4 days away from home seems so long. I guess it's good preparation for when she goes off to college in the fall, but I don't like it. :(
