Hope in Bracelets – Perfect Gift to Yourself or Loved One! #Giveaway

HIB HGG 2015


HIB 2015

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love the Holiday season. I also love the tradition of  Joan’s 5 Star Reviews sharing an awesome giveaway with you sponsored by Hope in Bracelets!

What makes Hope in Bracelets such a special business? The answer is EVERYTHING. Hope in Bracelets is the brainchild of Michelle Eberwein. Michelle started making “Cause” bracelets to bring awareness to several health issues, eventually expanding to all kinds of causes. OK, there are many sites like this, so what makes this one different?  Hope In Bracelets jewelry donates part of the proceeds from sales to a charity related to the cause bracelet purchased! How cool is that?

Cure Lupus

Hi friends. I hope you are all well. I have spent a short time in the hospital with what is probably a Lupus flare.  I had a 15 day migraine and bad pains all through out my abdomen. I am home on steroids but have neglected my blog for a week or so as I have been feeling so sick.

With this being said, I came on here today with more spam than I could possible look through on my comments. I did get some comments to approve but I would appreciate it if you have left any comments on my posts, giveaway and non, that you please double check to see if they are still there.  If not, please re-post for me.  I have some fun things I am working on ahead for you with M.O.O.N. where I am sponsoring the giveaways with cool products I have found to share with you~cannot wait. 

Thank you all for understanding and for those of you that shared on FB where my daughter posted my hospitalization, I really appreciate it.  Warm hugs to all.

As someone with Lupus and Fibromyalgia, the butterfly has become an important symbol for me.  You see, the Beautiful Butterfly is the symbol for these health disorders.  Whenever I see a butterfly outside I smile and reach out to it. I find the beauty of these insects comforting and fascinating at the same time.  I want to share with you some lovely butterflies and when you watch all these lovely creatures, think of all of us that suffer with these chronic illness and how we wish we could soar like the Butterflies!
