Thinking about what to PINK about!!!

Sooooooooo many things I want to talk about that tie to PINK!  But today something simple.  I am a believer in supporting your community and giving back.  I am not a person of big financial means so I try to make small things count.  I try to shop local -that is hard for super market type items but gift giving - cards (most of these things I try to make myself), bakeries, coffee house, eyeglasses (the company I work for, RX Optical, is a homegrown Michigan based company) - the list goes on.  I am an optician by day and have given proceeds from my work last year that sold to Optometry Giving Sight!  I donated a piece of work that was in my May postings to benefit the Womens Center of East Lansing.  I have ran in the Race for the Cure 5k several years and am always moved by the event.  When I am shopping for something if I can buy it to support a cause that I believe in - I do so!  So, I needed a new scrubby for my shower - saw one that came with a pink rubber ducky that lights up!!!  Proceeds to the Komen Foundation!  That was the scrubby for me!
Blogland is a supportive community!  Each site encourages others!  It is like getting big hugs and kudos everyday for your work!  No negativity here!  Each person I have connected with is inspiring and motivating. I did spent time this past week really visiting Tobi (my first pictured follower) at http://www.pinkpixieforest.blogspot.com/ - what an amazing fairy land she truly has created - check it out!
Ann, http://www.frostedpetunias.blogspot.com/ - love her artwork!!!! Peggy - please click on my #2 challenge for her Friday Foto Collage (top right) - great fun and I'm learning alot with this challenge!  I have been looking at the entries for where bloggers create - my friend Penny at http://www.palaverfrompelliegenghiskhat/ her space is so pretty and organized! Stephanie at http://www.queenofdreamsz.blogspot.com/ - Wow, talk about a room with a view!
Anyways, this is a community group!  World wide! 
MAKE A GREAT DAY - VISIT A NEW BLOG - LEAVE A COMMENT - IT DOES MAKE SOMEONE SMILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!
I will be visiting more of my visitors this week!  Darn real job thing takes up too much time.
cheers, dana

Hi Sweet Dana,

Happy PiNk to you!

Oh, I love that PiNk rubber ducky!! I totally agree with you on supporting your local community and helping in your community first...

I'm so glad you have seen and felt the heartfelt community that so many of us share in blogland...it truly is a place where our hearts meet and uplift on another in a way that is hard to find in our physical walk at times..it's the most unique place in the universe and I love it. ♥

Thanks so much for mentioning me and my creative space...it's been a year long transformation and I'm so tickled PINK to have it complete.

Have a lovely day and come by anytime to visit with me.

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥
