Breast Cancer Awareness

When you have a blog called "Everything Pink" you can't very well ignore the month of October celebrating the awareness of finding a cure for Breast Cancer.
Last month my friend Jennifer's mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I knew this is where I needed to focus my energy when doing something in honor of this month.
I made a custom bag in honor of Jennifer's mom and have set up a 100% donation auction on ebay.
I have made hundreds of these bags with my cottage business Pockets & Posies. It is great quality, has magnetic closure as well as a beautiful ribbon to tie it shut. It has metal feet on the bottom of the bag. It has a sewn in key chain to keep from losing your keys. It has polkadot ribbon, chenille scallop trim on the outside. It is made with heavy Pink and chocolate brown twill. It has two pockets on the inside with an embroidered Pockets & Posies label.

Here is the auction that will end October 12th. Click here
Please email this auction to every friend you know who may be interested. 100% of the profit will go to the Komen Northeast Ohio Race for the cure.

I love you Jen!
