Think Pink..In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month..

Good Monday Morning my friends,
I hope that you all took the opportunity to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month by scheduling your exam and that you do regular self-examinations.  There is nothing more important than our health not only for our own sake, but for the sake of our loved ones as well.  I thought that I would make a pretty little magnet for my refrigerator to remind me of how important that this is, and I can't get anything out of my refrigerator without seeing this cute little bear.   This was very quick, easy and fun to make.  I used an old ribbon spool as my base, so that it would make for a sturdy magnet to remove from the fridge and maybe put somewhere else.  If you would like to make something like this for yourself, a friend or loved one, you are in luck.  This sweet little Ribbon Bear is a FREEBIE that you can pick up for yourself at the McMahon Five Designs Store
Thanks for dropping in for a visit, and stay healthy my friends : )

This is how mine looks on my refrigerator

Our DT Sister, Bonnie has been feeling down since learning the news that her friend, Elise was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Many of us have followed Jacque's journey this year with Breast Cancer. We are all affected by this disease in one form or another and we can all do one thing to protect ourselves. SELF EXAMS! It's quick and simple and can save your life.

The M5D girls rallied together this past week to not only cheer up our sweet Bonnie's spirits but to help bring Awarness to such an important issue that affects us all.

To put our efforts in action, we came up with the this
there is one stipulation before you download him.
You have to promise to perform a self exam!
It's on God's Honor System and we know you will
do this for Yourself ...and... your Family!

As an added BONUS, we also came up with a set of 7 Breast Cancer Awareness Images to buy!

100% of PROFITS will go to

We'd love it if you would help us Spread The Word by displaying one of our blinkies or badges on your blog
