Love it

Now that we know the bracelet is safely on it’s way to MzV, I figured I would start a new blog where we can discuss it.  

We are talking about doing a raffle for Traveling Bracelet Participants. [those still involved in Fab40 as well]

The list will be revised as many have not been around for months or have shown no interest. Which is fine as this leaves more room for the second go-round. estaticheart I’m sorry, but if you are not active it is not fair to those who are!  

It is with MzV next, then Ruby, then Linni. I will be sending a new addy list to Ruby as a couple have since changed again.  

We [jen, me] do all we can to keep the list up to date, but please before you send it off double ck with the next person before mailing!  

It is looking awesome!! What a ride!!heart

    • Mornin everyone. happy

      For some reason I keep thinking of ideas to decide where the bracelet goes after its journey.
      Raffle? Or maybe a contest? Its hard to decide b/c it means so much to all of us. happy
      Id love to take pro pics of it and submit an article to a few different magazines, talk shows and a couple of newspapers. How do youfeel about that? And do I need to get permission from Yana or everyone involved to do so?

    • I was thinking why don’t we use this as PR for Yana and show the diversity of the group.

      We could do a map of the US and UK with a small pin in each spot it’s been to and maybe calculate the miles - plus if people wanted to be public a small bio one those and we could then send this to newspapers and magazines - I know the New York Times seems to love stories like this and maybe the home town newspapers of some of the others ......

    • Okay – so who could gather up every state the bracelet has visited and also contact all the people who have had the bracelet and ask if they want their name made public –( if they have a business it might be good PR for their company )
      Then we do a map of the US and you could do an arrow to UK .......
      Plus another thought which could help when the bracelet was with me I had Brianna staying and her book launch is soon which is going to be huge so I'll ask if she minds if I mention her so this would help us.

      So who can correlate the list and who could do a map and I'll do the press release and get the local paper news etc
      I saw this in the New York Times and thought this is the type of story we should put together

    • I’m thinking it will more about the bracelet than the journal. Jen started the traveling bracelet and I’m thinking we have the right to decide n our thoughts and journal regardless of where we started it. estatic

      The only permission we need is from those involved in this, imho.

    • Well it’s not the journal more the story of the bracelet and it’s travels and the charms etc .... so really the faces behind the charms and the miles it’s done ..

      The journal is private besides too much information for a press release - the essence is showing what an amazing group of women and how we connected over a bracelet - it has a piece of all of us

    • The bracelet is still on route...Just to let yous know I will not be online for a few days as I have to go to Winnipeg for a funeral...I got word a couple of days ago that my husband passed away...he apparently had a heart attack and I feel I should be there...as much as we had our issues I still love him very much and the last couple of months we had been talking about him coming here and us giving it another try...I guess it was just too late for that...anyways will try to get online to keep you posted...in case I don’t I am going to give the tracking info to MzV so she can keep tabs on it...Hoping to be back by the first of December...take it easy girls and tty again soon.

    • Although I am not here as often and I’d like to be and due to lack of participation, my opinion doesn’t count for much.
      However, I did have the bracelet in the beginning and it was an amazing experience.
      I think you all have great ideas here. Good luck with the next journey of the traveling bracelet.

    • Mine is the K2 and I love it too. I just don’t like the light or lack of light. Also I always end up reading from my iPod touch in bed so it doesn’t bother my hubz. Can’t forget to mention the games too happy
