As many of you may know I have been raising funds for Macmillan this year as I was told at the end of 2009 that I had cancer. I started a store on Folksy http://www.folksy.com/shops/MacmillanFundraising selling jewellery and then some of the other wonderfull sellers on Folksy offered to sell items in their stores and donate the proceeds to Macmillan aswell!
I was totally overwhelmed by the level of support from people. I had parcels arriving in the post from people sending me beads and findings for me to make into jewellery, it was lovely.

Since then, I have made two £100 donations to
Macmillan; one to my local fundraising group here
on the island and the other the our local Macmillan
nurse who has a pallative care fund for those cancer
patients who have chosen to die at home.

So today, I just wanted to showcase some of the
wonderful people who have helped me, and are
still helping me, by selling items for Macmillan.

These lovely earings are by Blue Forest Jewellery

A lovely lady called Sue, who is a whizz with the knitting needles,
originally made me a lovely hat to wear when my hair fell out due to the chemotherapy. She then made some of these cute little flowers that you can pin onto your coat, a hat, a scarf, anywhere!

With Christmas around the corner, its time to start buying cards and the lovely Amy, who is a very talented artist, has made these cute cards that she is offering to Macmillan.
