Chemo Kumihimo

Bernice started her chemotherapy yesterday!  I just have to share this picture with our loyal ADKOF fans because when I got it on my phone, I just couldn't help but smile.  When I picture people going to chemotherapy sessions (which last anywhere from 4 to 6 hours sometimes), I picture sweats or jammies and no make up.  Not Bernice!  Here's what our beauty queen wore to chemo yesterday:

And yes, she's rocking one of the latest ADKOF designs that she got in the mail from me on Wednesday!  She decided that who better to market to than the chemo nurses, and how better to market than to actually sport our new designs.  She's a walking billboard  I told her that she looks like a page out of a magazine.  I might even send it somewhere because I think she looks practically angelic!

So if you're wearing an ADKOF design, you're wearing history in a nutshell.  Our family is wading through many milestones in our lives right now, so our inspiration for pieces a lot of the time comes from our experiences.  Who knows...you might just fall in love with one of Bernice's Chemo Kumihimo pieces (she's working on kumihimo bracelets while she sits through her sessions).  Kumihimo is an oriental style braid that you use a loom for.  Several of the beaded bracelets that I've already previewed here are kumihimo style.  Bernice decided to take advantage of her time by knocking out some jewelry designs!

We even picked up some materials to do some breast cancer awareness pieces in the month of October (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month), so we'll be putting those up pretty soon!
