November is National Diabetes Awareness Month!
As the holidays approach, we gear up for family gatherings, reminiscing with old friends, and gift giving! This year, consider purchasing a locket from South Hill Designs Cute Jewelry. If your November purchase includes at least one of the items above, then 5% of the whole order will go to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund). Add the Red (January Birthstone) Swarovski Crystal, Platinum Pearl (3 pack), Gold Butterfly Charm, Silver Heart Butterfly Charm, or Crystal Butterfly Charm to your order and know that you will be supporting Diabetes Awareness and the search for a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Pictured with me to the left is my cousin, Alex. He was diagnosed at age four with Type 1 Diabetes. Seeing him get sick more easily and quickly, watching him be poked countless times a day, and knowing that his parents and grandparents wake up countless times a night to test his sugar and make sure he is ok just touches what it is like to be a Type 1 Diabetic. At 5, Alex was given the opportunity to use an insulin pump, instead of having to have an insulin shot each time his sugar needed to be adjusted. One would think this would be easier, and in some ways it is. However, the insulin pump has only slightly made Alex's life a little easier. He can't just jump in the pool whenever he wants in the summer. He has to remove the pump hose and secure his pump site. Alex has to be careful playing sports, especially contact sports, because his pump hose could be ripped out. He still has to check his sugar multiple times per day. While kids his age were learning how to beat a video came level, Alex was learning how to check his own sugar by poking a needle in his finger and putting a drop of blood on a test strip. Alex was also learning how to give himself an insulin correction.
Alex is very precious to me. I pray some day there is a cure to diabetes. I pray Alex and all the other Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetics get closer to living a "normal" life. I pray no more children face diabetes at such a young age.
Please, consider placing an order in November, and add one of Cute Jewelry's designated charms to your order, so 5% can be donated to JDRF.
Have a wonderful holiday season and a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Sunday! Here is the re-cap of Saturday's events at South Hill Designs First Annual National Conference:
The thing everyone is most excited about--New Products! South Hill Designs will be releasing:
I, for one, am mostly excited about the new charms, and new locket style. There will be 2 choices of Diamond Lockets. Silver with Black Enamel or Gold with White Enamel. Both look gorgeous! Of those 39 new charms, 8 of them will be Holiday inspired, including a Turkey, Easter Egg, and an adorable Snow Man!
Of the 21 new screens, 12 of them will be Astrological inspired! I can't wait to get the Scorpio screen for my locket! For me it holds extra-special value, because not only am I a Scorpio, but so is my father and my mother!
The new chains are going to offer even more ways to show off your locket, including a way to wear multiple lockets on one chain!
We will have 3 new genuine Swarovski Crystal Droplets. They will be available in Rose, Sapphire, and Clear. And get this--We will have matching, genuine Swarovski Crystal Channel Earrings to match! And guess what?! Made in the USA!
It appears South Hill Designs Signature Line is coming to an Artist near you! First in that line will be the genuine leather studded wrap bracelets and the all new South Hill Locket Bracelet. It appears South Hill Designs has listened to our many requests (over just one year in business!) and designed a gorgeous bracelet that will house our charms and accents!
Most of these items will be available to order on or after September 30th. Yay! I leave you with a sneak peek of what the new Silver with Black Enamel looks like with one of our new charms--a Dragonfly Charm! Happy first day of Autumn!
