Martha Stewart, I’m Not…

One of the things I wanted to do for the breast cancer walkathon was to design a tee-shirt to list the names of those who I am walking for (survivors and those who lost their battle with the disease). Along the course of fundraising, I’ve been touched by those who have donated to the cause because of the people in their lives who have been affected by the disease – and are motivated to donate to the cause that might help others, so that maybe one day there will be a cure for breast cancer.

I have no truly adequate way to honor these people – I mean, I’d come up with something way cooler than a tee-shirt if I could. But, I figured wearing their names would keep them with me on my journey, and it would remind me of their journey. Their journey is what it’s all about.

This morning, I went to the craft store. I found a pretty decent bright pink tee. I found an adorable sparkly pink ribbon iron-on patch (whoo hoo!) and I stocked up on far more colors of fabric paint than I care to admit so that I can attempt to write the names on this shirt so that they are still legible. Somehow.

Hours after returning home, all the supplies sit on my kitchen counter because I’m so afraid of messing it up. I’m afraid that I’m going to forget a letter in someone’s name – or that I’m going to accidentally fill in an “a” with paint and no one will know what it’s supposed to say. I’m probably over thinking it.

At some point today, I’ll get this thing started. I’ll work slowly and hopefully the end result fits the vision I have in my head.
