No Tricks, Just Treats!....The Perfect Time for a Sugar Bolus!
***THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED***
Can you believe it is October already? Where do the weeks go?
Well, this IS the month of TRICKS and TREATS, right?
I know that D will do nothing short of provide the TRICKS for all of us this month....So I will provide the TREATS!! Not one, not two, but THREE TREATS for one lucky reader!
That's right. It's time for another Sugar Bolus! And I'm hosting...
(Not sure what a Sugar Bolus is? Visit Candy Hearts to learn more about it.)
I am always looking for ways of organizing all of the supplies that I carry for my daughter with Type 1 diabetes. While browsing on ETSY one day, I came across these sweet Drink Stick Wallets at Brambleberry Cottage.
Nanci has a loved one with Type 2 Diabetes.
She originally designed these wallets for him to carry his drink sticks to work.
Nanci at Brambleberry Cottage so generously sent my Sweet Allison one of her Drink Stick Wallets to try out. What a TREAT. But the TREATS are not just for me ...she sent a second Drink Stick Wallet for one lucky Life is Like a Box of Chocolates reader to enjoy as well! Thank you Nanci!
And Look! It's filled with TREATS!
Still no TRICKS! But now it's time for TREAT #2!
Another sweet Etsy shop that I found, PillowSewCute, has generously donated an Ouch Pouch for this Trick or Treat giveaway. Thanks Karen!
The Ouch Pouch® is an ORIGINAL Designer First Aid Pouch
with an easy-to-view clear front pocket that will neatly hold YOUR owie supplies! Great for:
suitcase ♥ backpack ♥ purse ♥ car ♥ diaper bag ♥ desk golf bag ♥ garage ♥ beach bag ♥ brief case ♥ stroller
The Ouch Pouch (don't you just love that name!) comes in several sizes. I tried out the Medium (5x7) and the Small (4x5) Ouch Pouches. They also come in Large (6x8) and a special Epi Pen pouch (4x8).
As I was saying, my diabetes bag is an organizational nightmare! Don't believe me? See for yourself!
When I saw these Ouch Pouches with the clear pocket, I thought they might help me to organize these diabetes supplies. Plus, they are so cute! Look at some of the ways that I tried them....
These are photos of the small Ouch Pouch, perfect for glucose tablets, candies, test strips,
syringes, insulin bottle, extra batteries, and more.
The medium Ouch Pouch is my favorite! I can even fit a juice box in that sweet thing! The best part, look how narrow and compact this pouch is with the Juicy Juice box, granola bar and Smarties all inside.
I even tried the Epi Pen pouch for carrying the Glucagon. The thing that I liked about this pouch is that it has a clip on it, so you could clip it to a purse or your belt loop. (Karen, at PillowSewCute, changed out the "Epi Pen" label for me since I was going to use it for a different purpose. Thanks, Karen!)
And now you are wondering where the TREAT for you comes in, aren't you? Well, here it is....PillowSewCute has donated this Ouch Pouch for the lucky winner!
This medium Ouch Pouch in Zoo Blue fabric can be yours!
You want to see how my diabetes bag is looking these days, don't you?
But wait...What is TREAT #3 you say? Why the bag of course! I use this thermal tote from Thirty-One for our diabetes bag. A fellow D Mama is hosting a Thirty-One party in which 100% of the profit will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Pretty cool, huh?
As part of this awesome giveaway, you can win a small thermal tote from Thirty-One in the pattern of your choice. (**If winner doesn't respond within 48 hours, I will choose the pattern.**)
