Your Nails! Your Message!
I wanted to thank you for my replacement stamper heads! I received them a while ago and forgot to say thanks. I also wanted to tell you guys something.
My mother had been diagnosed with cancer. Stage 4 in her lungs and other cancer that had spread from her brain, down her spine, both arms, pelvis and her left leg. Shortly after I received my first orders from you guys, I went to visit with her. My sister had come down from Wisconsin, and we all got together at my mom's house in Kentucky. [My mom] was the original nail junkie. Her nails were always flawless and gorgeous, so I brought all of my stuff down to do up her nails.
After everyone got done laughing about the fact that I still own a Caboodle (gotta keep my stuff somewhere!), she spotted the plate in your Series 3 collection with the ribbons. Whether they were in fact the cancer awareness ribbons or just looked like them, I don't know, but she loved them. I stamped them on her ring fingers, and it was the first time I had seen her smile in months.
She passed away a week and a half later on March 9th, but she still had those ribbons on her nails. The cancer in her brain caused a lot of problems and the rest [of the cancer] kept her in a ton of pain, so she wasn't really herself towards the end. But I will never forget how that stamp made her smile. Something so simple gave her something to be happy about.
I just wanted to let you know that her and everyone else there thought [it] was the coolest stuff they had ever seen. You guys were round-aboutly responsible for making her happy for one of the last times. She was absolutely the original, O.G. nail junkie.
