The plan was to send one bead, Brooke suggested sending one for each mama. I personally don't really want to do this. I mean, I think of how nice it would be for me in labor to have a bead representing each of you, but I really want to find a bead that is special and I can't afford to buy a bunch of special beads. We need to come to a consenus on this as soon as possible, though, so if everyone could just post a quick note saying whether they want to send one or many, that would be helpful. I really want to participate, so if everyone wants to send a bead for each mama on the list, I will do it and just amend my rationale.
Also, I definitely think each mama should choose whatever color bead she wants so each person's bracelet is unique to them.
And the bead needs to have a fairly large hole so it can fit over a few strands of embroidery floss plaited together.
I think that is all the questions.
