ChemoAngel

A few days ago I signed up to be a ChemoAngel at http://www.chemoangels.net/.
Yesterday I received my new patient. I'm sending her a card and quick note today.

Here is a picture of the card and letter I am sending:



She is a woman in her 40's with breast cancer. So, I wrote my first letter to her today:

Dear xxx,

I was given your name today and wanted to write you a quick hello to introduce myself so that you can get to know a little bit about me.

I hope this introduction finds you feeling well and enjoying the changes of the season.

My name is Rebecca, but you will probably always see me sign myself as Bekah or Bek. As you can see from my return address, I live in Delaware. Not originally from this area, I moved here with my daughter in the early 90's because of a work transfer. I have been here since.

I love this area. City and outdoor adventures are easy and quick escapes from the mundane M-F work existence. I enjoy being so close to the hub of activity - NYC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington DC are usually at most only 2 hours from my front steps. The ocean is also very close. It's amazing that it's so close to me (about 1 hour away). I wish I took the time to visit more often.

I enjoy being outside (when it's warm) and consider myself an Outdoor Gal. I enjoy jogging, cycling (mountain and street) camping, hiking, camping, and rock climbing. I consider myself lucky to be married to a wonderful man that shares my love of the outdoors. We have alot of fun together.

Summer is my favorite season. I like it hot. A close second is Autumn. I just love all the colors. Leaves are just starting to turn around here and it's turning beautiful shades of crimson, red, yellow, orange, and olive. Warm up some cider and I’m in heaven.

From reading your profile, it looks like we are close to the same age. I’m 44. I also have three kids - two of them are stepchildren I acquired when I remarried. The oldest is my daughter, 22, who recently moved out west. Sometimes I think she might as well be living on the moon - it feels so far away. Thank goodness for technology and especially cell phones. We talk at least once a week to catch up. I sometimes live vicariously through her adventures. She is an amazing young adult...and is probably off getting herself in trouble as I type!

My husband has a daughter and a son. His daughter lives close by in Baltimore and his son is a senior in high school who lives with us fulltime. Both of my step children lived with us fulltime after we were married, so we had a full house until the girls went to college. My step-son is currently preparing for college and you can see his excitement grow with each passing day!

We also have 3 cats and a dog. No kidding aside, the dog is the smallest of the lot! I think soaking wet he still comes in under 5 pounds! Clyde is his name and he's a blond Pomeranian that has been my companion and friend for over 15 years.
When I'm not working (and I work alot!) or taking in some vitamin D outside, I enjoy doing all sorts of art. I love black and white photography and spend a good bit of time in a community dark room. I also oil paint, craft silver and PMC jewelry, and complete lots and lots of paper crafts. That's my current frenzy – although I have probably dabbled in it all. As you can see from all this - I really REALLY like to keep myself busy.

Anyway, that's a quick intro! And until next time, I sure do wish you the best.
Take Care!

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts.

Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend.

I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above!




Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads.

Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging?



You can find the tutorial for the bag Here.
Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month.

People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. It's …

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures!

I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover.

Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun!


The journal block comes from their September Kit.

Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity



The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower. It's big and has many uses!
