Hope Note Night…

All set up and ready to go…


Each Hope Note had it’s own station with all the supplies just waiting for a volunteer to assemble the pieces into a beautiful note of hope.


Then everyone had dinner and we got right to work.  Well, it really wasn’t work…we had a great time visiting and getting to know each other.  I think I mentioned before two of the ladies in this group are breast cancer survivors, so this project was even more meaningful to them.  From the left:  Dawn Benjamin, Wanda Davis, Holly Austin, Janice Guider and Susan McCarty.


These are samples of the six different Hope Notes.  We made 120 cards in one night!  All of them made for someone newly diagnosed with breast cancer.  Our wish is that this little card will carry a message of hope to whoever receives it.

These cards and this night are the culmination of an idea I received at Lisa Pretto’s Tuscon Demonstrator Retreat  “Ink Big” from a fellow demonstrator who talked about a similar project in her market.  I just knew when I heard her story I had to bring this home. I am so grateful for all the help and encouragement I have received along the way.  If anyone who reads this feels like I did in Tucson, you are welcome to contact me and I will help you any way I can.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”Be HaPpY…it drives people crazy!”

I’ve got more than inky fingers today…but I’m HaPpY!
