Day 6- D-Blogging- A picture is worth a thousand words!

Click for the Saturday Snapshots - Saturday 5/19 Link List.
Back for the third year, let’s show everyone what life with diabetes looks like! With a nod to the
Diabetes 365 project
, let’s grab our cameras again and share some more d-related pictures. Post as many or as few as you’d like. Feel free to blog your thoughts on or explanations of your pictures, or leave out the written words and let the pictures speak for themselves.
I am a picture freak! Just ask anyone that knows me. If there are not at least 50 pictures of any given must not have happened, or I wasn’t there! I love taking pictures. I am not a photographer, nor do I claim to be! – But I do LOVE to take pictures of EVERYTHING! Every picture that I have ever taken is now labeled in my mind “before” or “after.” I can look at a picture and in an instant remember if it was taken “before” or “after” my daughter, Kaci was diagnosed with diabetes. Weird, huh?
Well, here are just a few D-related pictures (in no particular order) that I would like to share with all of you.

 This is the postcard Kaci made for the World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange in 2011. Click here to learn more about it and join for next year
 This is Kaci's entry for the FORD Customer Service Division JDRF car design in June 2011.
This contest raised over $43,000!! Kaci's car raised $2,255.00! Amazing!
 Here are the beautiful canvases Kaci painted for the JDRF Hope Ball auction this year 2012. Her canvases were connected with 23 other canvasses painted by children with diabetes. It sold for $3,700 to help find a cure for diabetes!
 These are the beautiful mosaics Kaci and Bailey volunteered to make this year as gifts for past JDRF board presidents.
 This is Kaci in 2010. She stuffed over 1,000 JDRF School Walk folders.
 Kaci in 2011 stuffing more folders. 3000 this time!
