Crayola gluten free info

I know that there are so many parents out there that are getting ready  for school and scanning that school supply list or even if you just want something for your little one to play with at home here is some info on Crayola.

I called them again today (07/26/11)  and everything except crayola dough is Gluten free.  I checked about the new dry erase products since they are new and they are Gluten free.  I always ask about the crayola color bubbles and they are still safe as well.

Here is the information from the site and the link as well:

Touch yourself!

There are a ton of great organizations out there for breast cancer and they have hip names so we all support them.  Really though as a mom or just a woman how many of us forget to touch ourselves once a month? We all have so much going on and truth be told the last thing I want to do is add one more thing to the to do list when it comes shower time. I even have a how-to breast exam shower hanger in there with me that I got when I was 16.  I think this disease kills so easily because Women are so busy taking care of our families that we put ourselves off until later.

Since another woman I love has been added to the list of ppl I will fight to Save the ta-tas, Cop-a-feel, and all the others out there.  I felt the need to remind all women and men out there in cyber land to take a min each month and touch yourself. Maybe this disease will never find you  but more likely then not it will touch your life somehow.
