A few sleeps ago, I participated in an Altered Charm Swap hosted by Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine. My Muse was not guiding me and it was closing in on the deadline. All in one day, I received three emails about friends diagnosed with breast cancer. That did it. I marched on over to my studio, cut apart bras and garters, gathered pink beads and began to create with a fury about this disease that continues to arrive uninvited and unannounced in the beautiful bodies of my girlfriends. I mailed them off, later receiving my swapped charms of art and forgot all about it, until this morning when I get an email saying CONGRATULATIONS for making the final cut. ? WHAT? Yep, out of 2000 charms, 64 were chosen to be published in this months issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors, page 53, I am #26, the beaded garter closure.
