I decided it was time to get on the band wagon and start a blog for my jewelry shop. I never thought a blog was a way to market your product, but it seems this is the way to go. I had a blog on blogger when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I journaled quite frequently from the time I was diagnosed through to the end of treatment but then I just stopped journaling. I love to make beaded necklaces, earrings and most of all I began designing breast cancer awareness bracelets during my diagnoses and treatment. I would make one or two bracelets for co-workers, get asked to make more, and more. So I decided that for every breast cancer awareness bracelet I sold I would donate a portion of the sale proceeds to the Susan G Komen Race For The Cure. Last year my team in the Portland OR, RFTC was one of the top 100 teams for fund raising. So here I am.
