the pink kalli crystal necklace {for the cure}

I have the cutest friend named Kalli. This is us when she was visiting us in Seattle a while back (maybe that's why I'm holding the Starbucks cup like it's a prop? I don't know.). Anyway. . .

I love this girl. She is funny, sweet, smart, and creative. She is inspirational, hard working, gracious. She's an amazing mother, a loyal friend, a fabulous crafter, and a fighter--the definition of strength. And she is a breast cancer survivor.

Few people can handle that kind of pressure with grace and humor, but she has. That's why I'm so excited to share her gorgeous "Pink Kalli" Crystal Necklace. You might recognize Stacy's design from this post. But this one is even more dear to my heart. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this necklace will go to the Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. Wouldn't it make a beautiful Mother's Day gift? Yes it would. But I'll let Kalli tell you more:

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 31. The news came as a complete shock, I felt as if I had so much life to live, and I wanted to raise my two young children, so I searched for a way I could join in the fight against cancer. Annually my family and I participate in Susan G. Komen’s Race for the Cure. The race is held all over the country every Mother’s Day weekend to honor all the women and families affected by breast cancer and to raise money for breast cancer research. It is inspiring. I wanted to give more, so this year, I have designed the Pink Kalli Crystal. 100% of the proceeds from sale of the crystal necklace will be given to the Komen Foundation in honor of Megan Lloyd, a dear friend fighting breast cancer for the second time. If I am not able to see a cure for breast cancer in my lifetime, I am proud to say that I have given to the cause and research in finding that cure through the sale of these handmade necklaces. Please support the many women and men who have been affected by breast cancer and purchase the Pink Kalli Crystal Necklace.

To order the necklace, send an e-mail to and she will send you a PayPal link to pay for it. It's perfect for Mother's Day! Kalli also has a team for the Salt Lake City Race for the Cure coming up in May. If you would like to join her team or donate, go here. And while you're at it, check out her crafting kit shop, Sister Secrets. It's a great place to get complete kits for some of the very tutorials you've seen here!

Thank you so much for helping me support Kalli and her amazing efforts to fight breast cancer!
