Do we still want to do them? The birthing bracelets were where we have a bracelet with a bead from each active member on it and wear it to remember our support from our DDC when we're in labor. I think it would be a neat thing to do.


If I go into labor as early as I did with DS I could go on bed rest the end of March have this baby the first week of April. That is not far away since this weekend is February already! So, I was thinking if we want to do them, we probably need to do it soon. I would not be good at sending them out but I have an idea on the logistics of it.... If we send a bag of beads and a self addressed, stamped (with several stamps) inside the main package to someone that would like to be the one to mail them all out. The person mailing them all out can just put one of each bead received in each already addressed, stamped envelope. Then, I think we can all purchase our own string and put the beads on to wear on our big day!!

What do you girls think? Are we still interested in this? If so, is anyone interested in taking this on? If we are and someone volunteers...maybe we could have the address in the lab or private messaged to everyone that is interested.

I'd love to, I really think this is such an empowering idea! And would be happy to help with the "administrative" part of it as well.

What kind of beads? Maybe stick with our minions theme and get different yellow/blue beads? Just a thought we don't have to.

Maybe someone can make a sign up thread detailing exactly what we need to buy and do, who to send it to, etc?

I don't wear anything on my wrist. I just can't. I'm thinking of making it a key chain type of thing.

Maybe if they are just strung on string and moms can do with them what they wish? And that way they can size them correctly, too.

I've got kid-sized wrists so I'll probably make 2 bracelets

I think the best thing to do would be send all beads to one person then have that person sort and mail them to everyone and then when they get to you make what you want! Keychain, bracelet, necklace...ect

I am pumped you guys are all interested! Woohoo! I think somehow we need to figure out about how many beads we need to send too. Maybe we could set up a poll and those that are interested could vote "count me in", if you're not interested it is totally okay.

So very into this idea, I'm in!! I think it would be cool if we chose beads that represent ourselves, so we could have a bit of each other in the final product? But I like hodge podge looking jewelry.

Great idea. We can include:
-Exactly what to buy (do we need to specify diameter?) and how many (following poll results)
-Who to send it to
-When to send it by
-What to include: Your real name, screen name and address
-What you'll get: beads from each participating member for you to make whatever you wish
