    Handbags in honor/memory of those who have had cancer

    Advertisements
    I'm starting a line of bags in honor and in memory of those who have had cancer in order to raise money for the American Cancer Society. I'd like to make each unique bag in honor/memory of someone different, so if there is someone you would like to honor please let me know. I'm going to start a blog alongside this project, and I'd like to be able to say a little bit about the person, and to know what type of cancer they had. Also what their favorite color is/was, because that is the color I'll make the bag.

    Anyways, if this is something you might want to participate in, let me know. Here's the one I made for my aunt, and this is what the bags would generally look like.

    Another idea would be their cancers color. For me, Kidney Cancers color is green. (Although some places say orange. I disagree....)

    If you want "an insiders" opinion on anything, let me know!

    OK, Aunt Julia said Big Daddy liked Blue and Grandmother liked natural earth tone colors. Sunrise colors, dirt colors. She said she was an artist and loved natural colors.

    ETA she also said that Grandmothers mom (Genevieve also) died of pancreatic cancer
    So Hubs great grandmother.
    Yes we have a lot of Genevieves
