READY? I challenge YOU!!!

I am sure many of you have or will be given the ALS challenge. The first video that I saw was a friend of my son's who really didn't go into the meaning and it was "very comical." I did not even really realize what the whole "campaign" was about. Then my daughter Gentry had me watch the video of the "reason"... the real person behind the story. I was crying as I watched it. I felt I needed to help in some way. I then challenged Beth and Don Kingston and Chris Potter who I love and know from Xyron.

I always tell my children to be a leader and not a follower. I knew that I wanted to accept my challenge from my both my friends TC and Amy. I also knew that every little bit helps. So I challenged everyone on my Facebook and instagram to donate just $5.00 to the ALS cause (or one that is near and dear to them). That alone would raise over 100,000.00 to the ALS cause. I wanted to personally donate $100.00 and do the challenge.

I know that without medical research we all can and will face horrible illnesses that have no cure. Thankfully my husband has had his stem cell transplant. This was a real blessing. This can help to save his life. How grateful I am to those who have donated and helped raise money for cancer and lymphoma research. I want  to make a difference in some small way. I am so grateful for my husband and his "fighting" but weak spirit. He is really amazing!

I am headed for the airport on my way to Long Beach, CA in a few hours. I am going to see Matt's beautiful family. I will stay with them. I am so excited to see them. I look forward to seeing everyone in my workshops today and tomorrow too. I love doing these events. 

Now today is the BIG REVEAL. My brand new dies SOLD OUT in hours on HSN. Now you can get them (*very limited quantity) here....

Teresa, would you consider making your dies with the centers cut out? Those little pin holes to push the paper back through leave circle marks on my papers, especially my shiny gold card stock.

You are heavy in my heart today-love and prayers headed your way.
