Pump Pack Giveaway

I have to start this post by thanking Cara for starting an addiction that is going to follow Kacey for the next few years. When Kacey first got her pump, Cara was so thoughtful and sent Kacey her very first pump packs. One with Tigger and the other with Jonas Brothers. Because Kacey found such a love for these packs, my Mom decided to use one of them as a model and make Kacey more. Last year, Kacey had about 15 different packs and she'd match them to whatever she was wearing that day. It became a "fashion trend" and her friends looked forward to seeing which pump pack she came in with next. So to continue the trend, my Mom doubled the amount of packs and got creative. She has been a sewing freak the last few weeks. She whipped out a whopping 30 pump packs for Kacey to start school with this year! She made her ones to match different outfits but then she even made a few for holidays! She's got one with fireworks, one with jack-o-lanterns, one with green swirls and one with hearts! She even made one with paw prints which is Kacey's school mascot logo!!! Thanks Nae for all your hard work! Below is a pic of what she surprised Kacey with.....
While she was on a sewing binge, she whipped out a few extra packs for me to use as "giveaways" on here. If you're interested in getting one of these packs, all you have to do is post :) Please do not put your address on here for privacy reasons. Just tell me you're interested, your name, your child's name, diagnosis date and most importantly....your email! On Friday, Oct 2nd, I will be putting everyones name in a bowl and letting Kacey draw them out. I've got at least 6 packs to give away so far :) So....POST!!! :) :) :) :)

Sorry that the packs are not in a boy print. My mom did these with extra material she had from making Kacey's packs. The packs that are made straight up and down will hold either a pump or a lancet and test strip bottle. So if your little one is going outside to play and already has a different way to clip their pump, then she can use this to carry her lancet, test strips or even a bottle of glucose tabs/gel.

One very special grand prize winner will receive a ***secret*** pump pack and another special surprise that will be shown on Friday Oct 2nd when Kacey does the drawing.

GOOD LUCK!!! <3

Since Elise isn't on a pump, we don't need to be entered, but I did want to say that these are so cool!

We're interested -- my daughter Kate was diagnosed August 2008 and has had a minimed pump for 2 months. Enjoy reading and learning from your journey.
