2 Things Thursday

One: I just signed up to participate in World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange to commemorate World Diabetes Day on November 14.

I’ve never done it before, and I’m really looking forward to it. The d-girls and I had so much fun on Diabetes Art Day that I’m thinking of incorporating this home-made-postcard-creation-art-event into another gathering, as well as having my daughter help me make some of the postcards. I applied to be a “postcard elf” which means I may be making some extra cards as well. Yay, artsy fun!

Two: Lauren’s Hope medic alert bracelets need to stop being so stinking pretty. I don’t *need* more bracelets – to be completely honest, I don’t really like wearing them because I’m a klutz and get them caught on everything – but Lauren’s Hope makes bracelets so stylish and snazzy, that I’ve actually started wearing a medic alert bracelet about 90% of the time when I leave the house. (This is exceptionally higher than the 0% I was wearing one about 2 years ago.) I WANT this new one with the animal print design. As it states in the description – “Let loose your inner wild side” – thank you, I will!!

(And in case you’re wondering, I don’t think “2 Things Thursday” is an internet theme-day yet, but maybe it will become one?? Oh, wait – I just searched and found someone has done a Three Things Thursday. Wow. The alliteration for that is SO much better. I probably will not become an internet theme-day pioneer anytime soon….)

  1. I have two Lauren’s Hope bracelets. She does free repairs too if you break them (or have your cat try to eat them) within the first 6 months of purchase.

    Thanks for the heads up about Postcard day. 🙂

    • Good to know! Of course, everything I have always breaks AFTER the warranty period is up, and one of my bracelets had a lobster claw piece break after having it about a year. I *think* I can fix it myself, but have I gotten around to it? Nope.

  2. I love the idea of two things Thursday. 🙂 Three things is just too darn much, right? You were right on the money. Pioneer? Indeed. Thanks for sharing. I have looked around the Lauren’s Hope site quite a bit. They have great things. Cheers to jewelry and blinging in the name is diabetes awareness.

  3. I get compliments all of the time on my Lauren’s Hope bracelet and only once have I had someone notice that it was Medic Alert. I have been assured that the paramedics would notice though.

    • I would truly hope they do! I still think about getting a T1 diabetes tattoo on my wrist every now and then, but that seems so permanent, and I refuse to give up on finding a cure in my lifetime. But maybe if I DID get the tattoo, then the universe would laugh at me then and then they WOULD find a cure, so….???!!

  4. What a gorgeous bracelet. I don’t own any medical alert bracelets, though I know I should wear them, just haven’t found any I like. As for two things Thursday..I like it. Way better than three. 🙂

    • You are sweet! And I won’t be the Mama-overbearing-type and tell you that you SHOULD be wearing a medic-alert bracelet, because I’ve had my back-slidden days not wearing it myself. I have a pump, and I always think, “duh, EMS or other people should be able to figure it out” but then there’s always that little voice in my head that says, “maybe they won’t. Maybe the cops will think you’re drunk instead of crashing from low sugar, and you’ll be dead before someone figures out to look under your shirt.” I know, it’s worst-case-scenario, but it could happen. While I am not perfect in always wearing my bracelets, I DO always wear one if I’m out and about alone with my daughter. Her safety freaks me out moreso than mine.
