Charmies for October

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I thought I would highlight a company who makes Awareness Jewelry- Charmies Online. They make handmade beaded creations, such as Mommy Bracelets, Roses, Necklaces, Bridal Jewelry and much more. Everything can be customized to your liking.


In October you can get 15% off all orders with Coupon Code: SPOOKY
Also, you can purchase a $5.00 Spree Square Game Card (located in the Miscellaneous category) for the chance to Win $75.00 in jewelry of your choice!


My personal favorite is the Beaded Roses! I have mine in a vase next to my computer. It takes over 2 hours for the creator to handcraft each Rose! The best thing is, they last forever, unlike the real thing.


If there is anything special you are looking for, if able, she will accomodate all requests. Any colors, extras, resizing, etc, just contact her. You will be thrilled with your purchase.

Virtual Walk for Breast Cancer

Virtual Walk for Breast Cancer

On Monday, October 1st (the first day of breast cancer awareness month) we will begin our journey in Boston in honor of my cousin Robin (who you may know passed away at 45 after losing her brave battle to Stage IV – leaving behind a wonderful husband and a six year old daughter). Tune in to Martha Stewart that day when she features herself joining the Walk! 31 days later we cross the “finish line” on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in memory of Janis Armstrong – who even during the final months of her life – helped us craft the Gal to Gal Foundation’s mission statement. We will walk through 29 additional cities (one each day) along the way.

Our intent is to utilize the internet as the powerful and positive tool it can be. To unite us in a way that crosses all faiths, ethnicities and belief systems. For this journey there are no “blue” or “red” states but only “PINK” ones. The fact is, as my dear friend Carrie Dederich has said – “breast cancer is an equal opportunity destroyer.” Please pass this email along to all your friends, business associates or anyone you should meet on the street!! Once registered you will be able “find your friends” on the site and check in every day to watch yourself walk amongst celebrities and thousands of others. You can even create your walker on all the Design-her Gals stationery and gift products.
