It’s been a a year or so now that the Switch Me Messenger was sold out (all within a couple of months), and because you all expressed a need for them again. They’re making a return, and that’s what I love so much about running Stick Me Designs. It’s you all that I rely on to make all the hard choices that I’m not the greatest at, but rightly so because in the end it’s the diabetes family and community that will be enjoying my accessories, traveling with them, and whipping them out during a night out to make sure
Trippy Nite 'Switch Me' Messenger
those bg’s are on track.
For those of you new to the Switch Me Messenger the idea is simple. One messenger bag body, that comes with a supply clutch, and a choice of different flaps to switch out when you feel like changing the look of your diabetes bag. When you feel like blue, grab a blue flap..feeling like a retro green, grab that one. It’s the ultimate accessory for all you ‘changeyourminders’ out there..me included
Another new development I’m working on is the ‘Design of Diabetes’ website and t-shirt design contest. I wanted to give the community a platform to express what you want to say about diabetes. Maybe a favorite motivational quip, or a creative sketch that helps you get by. The idea not new to the t-shirt industry a la Threadless.com is to allow the creative types to upload a design. Share the design with community visitors via the Design of Diabetes website, and let them vote on their faves. The popular ones get made into tees. The idea is to melt design, style and awareness into the lifestyles of the community at large. Oh and I have to include that a portion of the winning designs will be given to the artists’ favorite diabetes charity. And that’s what makes is awesomebulous!
While some of you may know that in addition to being a busy business mom, I’m also a Navy Chief spouse, and my husband goes away often on ‘Navy water excursions’…but now as we wind down his 20 year career, it’s time to pick up new orders. Ideally we’d like to stay here in the Virginia Beach, VA area, but the Navy isn’t that kind at the moment. With budget woes, and job spots becoming a rare commodity we may have to get creative to make this happen. *Sigh* so what does this all mean? Well put simply, we may be moving within a year…but only after my husband leaves me and the boys for 6+ Long summer months! Uugh..not my favorite part of the Navy but a job that needs to be done none the less.
Step Right Up Folks…To The Greatest Show on Earth! Come watch as the mom of 2 very rambunctious boys under the age of 6, juggle life as a single parent, an entrepreneur, selling a house, buying a house, fixing said house, looking for a new job (hopefully won’t need that part), looking for a new school, saying good bye, and readjusting all over again!! Yes folks the next year will read straight from fingers of a mom juggling waay more than she ever thought she could.
Stay Tuned, oh and thanks for reading!
