Inspired Friday: Brain Cancer Gifts

You don't have to actually craft anything to "be inspired". Show something you maybe have done, want to try, or even a cool looking book nook or library. Whatever inspires you!

On the 21st I will be running a 5k for brain cancer. My dad has been in this battle since Sept 11, 2009. Recently we found out that it came back and has spread so I decided to do something even though it is just to make me feel like I am doing something. Well I have made a team and I want to give everyone something as a reminder and thanks for joining/supporting us. These are some things that I thought might be cool to make:

    That is really thoughtful of you and really brave! Many positive thoughts &vibes to your dad. :) I love the very last one, probably because it reminds me of a wristband, rather than a bracelet.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. Thanks! I agree, I really like the last one too.

  3. That's something very kind and thoughtful, Jess. I'm really sorry to hear about your dad and I'm sending lots of positive thoughts and hugs your way. Unfortunately, I'm too well aware of how those are needed in such cases... I lost my grandpa (who was a father to me) because of liver cancer last year and it's still pretty damn hard, but I was happy to have used something like the bracelets you proposed. I asked a friend of mine who creates these kind of jewelry even for cancer support and she made one similar to the third one you posted. It was a sort of symbol that I was fighting with him, still makes me feel that way actually. Now I have a locket with also a little cancer pendant, too. They may sounds like 'silly' things but they are not and I wear them with pride and, of course, love. So, you may say I really appreciate your post and I agree with Franny, the last picture is precious but you'll have that feeling with anything you end up choosing, you'll see ;)
