Get some balls this Christmas!

Got your attention didn’t I?

Anywho, I’m posting after a huge break from writing to help promote something near and dear to my heart.  My eldest sister and her husband make gorgeous blown glass Christmas ornaments.  They sell for $20 each and ALL proceeds go to support The Ride to Conquer Cancer.

 

Like my mom, my sister is a cancer survivor and her husband did the ride in her honour for the past two years.  Even better, she rode it last year.  When she received the word that she was cancer free, she signed up.  The training was brutal for someone fresh out of chemo but she endured.  We are all so proud of her effort and thrilled that she made it across the finishing line under her own steam!  And speaking of steam, here’s a look at what her hot air (and a lot of other heat) can produce!

 

I’m posting this on my blog as it also links into Facebook.  For friends and co-workers, I have a supply of these at my desk that I can carefully wrap in tissue paper, put into a hand stamped (by my big sis) box and drop off or send out to you.  They are truly great gifts and each one is unique.

 

Here’s a look at the artists as they work.

 

Cancer is a word, not a sentence.
