Susan G. Komen Ornaments

We lost a pillar of our family when I was in 3rd grade with the loss of my grandmother, Louise (Dabby) Drummond Fairweather to breast cancer. I have very few memories of a grandmother of whom I have been told was an extraordinary woman and that as I grow older resemble quite vividly. Loosing such a great women to such an awful disease has given me the passion to be largely involved with Susan G. Komen for the Cure. My involvement first started in college when I was introduced to Race for the Cure, through philanthropy projects our sorority (Zeta Tau Alpha) engaged in. After college I began volunteering for the Tulsa affiliate of Susan G. Komen and have been so immensely blessed through the people I have meet, the stories I have heard, and the strength I have seen in the women that have or had battled the disease. As a thank you for what the organization does for so many women, I made a few ornaments for the Tulsa office. Here are some pictures I took before delivering the goods, if I have to say so myself I think they ROCK!!


  1. I think they ROCK too! I made a few Christmas ornaments this year too. I love the inner Martha Stewart in me regadless of how many jokes my friends make about it. :)

  2. One of my favorite things about the holiday's is tapping into my inner Martha :-)
