We had talked about this a few weeks ago -- see the past post here! http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...bracelets.html. Panda, are you still willing to facilitate the mailings? If you can't I'm happy to do it.

From the previous thread, BB2014 shared how it would work:

-Everyone who is interested sign up below so we can get an accurate number of how many beads to buy
-Go out and buy the beads of your choice
-Mail your beads and a self-addressed and stamped envelope inside the package to cover the cost of your bead mail-back (one of those yellow protective mailers) to Panda
-Panda can sort the beads and mail all participants their strand. Then you can make your own bracelet, key chain, necklace, whatever!

Please sign up by Feb. 21 so we can get a count. Simply indicate below if you want to participate!

Beads will need to be mailed to PANDA by March 7.

I must have missed this thread. What are birthing beads for? Could you link the thread about this so for those of us that may have missed it can go read it?

Updated above with the original post link!

BB2014 put it nicely: "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." But you don't have to make yourself a bracelet, you can do whatever you want with it!

I'm in as well! I don't think we should do a color theme. Just whatever everyone can find.

I'm in too! I agree with no color or theme, I think our beads should totally represent each of us individually!

I would like to participate but people like CAMM and I would need our beads by the beginning of April and I just don't know if that's a realistic timeline for everyone else.

I agree we need them before April because some babies have plans of their own

Maybe deadline should be 21st of Feb and get them to PANDA by March 7th?

And I agree, we should get beads that represent ourselves

That sounds like a good timeline and does not sound unreasonable!

Are they fat beads? I love the idea of the bead representing ourselves! I'm in.

I think those glass beads that are like the size of pandora beads would be cool... they make glass beads that size that are really not expensive if you got to a bead store.

Is that what everyone else is thinking or smaller beads?
