This is terrible on my part!! I feel like a perfect ass on this big screw-up; I try so hard to be a woman of my word and I hate when my disease interferes with me maintaining that goal.
Remember when I got all fired up about trying to get medical support and manufacturer backing for polymer clay physical therapy?
Finally, after having every door shut in my face, I gave up. I didn’t have the energy to pursue it after Mark was diagnosed either. BUT, I completely forgot to tell you this part!!
I kind of feel like a heel about the results but you all know that my intentions were all good and I was on the up and up about trying to shine the light on how clay has benefitted me, right?!
Well, here’s the thing, I did hear back from one of the manufacturers, Sculpey, and they were extremely supportive of my quest, just not on a long-term basis. They told me to pick out what colors I wanted ’cause they were shipping me a one time donation of 50 bars of clay!!
I stated that I hadn’t got anything started yet on the weekly workshops I was hoping for and, therefore, could they make sure the clay was good and fresh since I might have to store it for a while.
Long story short, they said don’t worry about it if I ended up using it myself, they just wanted to contribute back into the community whenever possible, something like that.
Darn it! I wish I had posted this story immediately after everything happened so I could remember the details better!!!!
But hey, I’m just glad I could share that with you all 🙂
