October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The Power of Pink Art Bra: Patricia J. Mosca and Nancy L. Jones
as seen in Art Bra Calendar 2007 THE POWER OF PINK
She always loved pink! During her wild child days of delighting in every moment, delectable pink adorned her from head to toe. It made her feel pretty. Deeper than pretty, really because pink is the color of miracles. Ah, Pink! Bubblegum and roses, flamingos and flaming sunsets.
As she grew older, pink became less of a focal point in her wardrobe. She decided that "black" was her color of choice in her twenties. Her thirties were "blue" and pink slipped further into the shadows. But, pink was patient. It wasn't until after the visit to her doctor.
After the screams and tears. After she began her treatments. After the shock wore off. As she started to piece back the fabric of her life. Her strength and her courage allowed her to live again. And what did she discover? PINK!
Pink is the energy that moves us out of negative states, giving us physical and spiritual clarity. Pink is the balance of yin and yang. Pink is tremendously powerful. The wild child wears the ribbon proudly, the symbol of a bodacious warrior. It diminishes the fear and anguish of dis-ease. It lovingly supports the integrity of the individual. Pink is the color of healing. Pink is the color of her soul. She glitters in pink, she glides, she feels pretty!
Never underestimate the power of pink! It HEALS OUR WORLD! When you have a choice wear and think PINK!

Your imagination and creativity never ceases to amaze me. I have seen the Bra in other publications and loved it. But I also love the bench.

Patricia...I am in the process of building a website. It will be done in a few weeks I hope. For now I sell these bracelets by word of mouth and if anyone happens to see them on my blog, they email me to order bracelets. I can make copies of many of the ones I've already sold. It is wonderful to connect through the internet. I'll post a link to your blog on mine! Thank you! Happy Saturday!
