Pink Ribbon Giveaway

Today, 26 October, is Pink Ribbon Day. We started the morning at the community centre with my Rotary club, the Rotary Club of Wallsend-Maryland, and cooked pink pancakes and bacon and eggs (their natural colour) at a fundraising breakfast for Breast Cancer Research. I also bought a couple of items of pink merchandise to support the cause. The pink ribbon and pen are part of this week’s blog giveaway. It’s a pink parcel – a pink fabric bag, made from a Laurel Burch print, a beautiful flower made by my mum, one of our Rotary club’s angels of hope and the pen and ribbon. There may be some other little pink surprises which I may add during the week. All you have to do to win this prize is leave a comment, either about Pink Ribbon Day or one of the photos in this blog post. I will put all the names in a container and draw one next Monday, 2 November, 9am Australian Eastern Summer Time.

The photos are of things I’ve finished this week. The beaded doll was started ages ago, before I went to Papua New Guinea, and I only picked it up again this week to finish the few rows of beading at the base. The “forest messenger” doll was merely a scrumble, and polymer clay head lying amongst all the other unfinished projects on my work table, so I took both and put them together.

Remember to win the pink giveaway,  please leave a comment, before 9am, 2 November, about any of the photos or about Pink Ribbon Day and make sure I have your email details to contact you. Please support Breast Cancer Research.
