Hope and Words On The Spurr of the Moment

Donated 10 Face Shields to Marblehead Fire Department June 1, 2020 15:06

Thank you Tom Roberts for donating 10 Face Shields from Hope and Words to the Marblehead Fire Department.  I was so excited to make a difference and couldn't have done it without Tom's help.  He is a good neighbor and I was thrilled that he wanted to create a win, win situation with the donation, which helps Hope and Words.  Inside each of the Face Shield packages, I put a Hope and Words postcard, with the many masks, hand sanitizers photos on it and wrote a special memory to each fireman thanking them for taking care of my friends, my house or my neighbors house in the past.  We love fireman.  Thank you for your great work.  

Also, PB and KS donated 6 Face Shields to Confidential Care.  A health care company in Marblehead.  It really feels great to make a difference in this town.  

Donations continue for Face Masks, Hand Sanitizer, cotton gloves, etc. May 29, 2020 10:37

Thank you for all of your great orders for the face shields, face masks and have had two people want to buy 10 shields to donate to the Fire Department.  More to come on that.  I really love making people safe.  Here are some other great items; Cotton gloves (I love this and wash them after each use) hand sanitizer, alcohol wipes and travel soaps, which have about a dozen inside this cute package.  All are $3.00.  Please contact me about the face masks.  I'm always getting in new styles every week.  The ones with the air vents are the best.  I even went running while wearing one, but just for 1/2 mile.  Hope everyone is healthy and miss you all, lots of smiles, Janet  spurr1@msn.com 

Unique Face Masks May 17, 2020 17:49

Dear great friends, customers and everyone wonderful,

Thank God for Face Mask sales.  Just received some new fun, fang masks, which are really comfortable.  A neighbor bought 3 yesterday and ordered 4 more today.  She said they are perfect for her teenagers.  They sell for $7.00 each and I'm already sold out of the vampire mask.  I'm also hoping to get in face masks that have a hole for a straw.  More to come soon!  Take care, Janet 

Kids' Face Masks $6.50 and smiles May 7, 2020 12:45

Just read recently in USA Today; There is a mild benefit to laughing.  It's a positive emotion that is good for our heart and easier to solve problems when we're in a positive mood.  I know it's extremely hard now to be positive, but I think of my great friend JL who has cancer.  She is going to Mass General Hospital for treatments.  I try many times a week to email and send her something funny.  Speaking of fun, just received Kids' Face Masks which are $6.50.  They won't be on my website, but email me at:spurr1@msn.com and no minimum.  Thank you, Janet

Social Distancing Face Masks April 30, 2020 11:27

Been walking lately and watching spring bloom.  It's nice to be able to stop and enjoy the blue, red and yellow flowers or trees.  I saw a yellow magnolia tree the other day and never had noticed it before.  Today, Hope and Words has yellow face masks either with Social Distancing on it or plain yellow.  There are also other items that might help you or someone else through this time too.  Take care, Stay Safe, Janet

I wore this 3 dimensional face mask while walking the other day and it's my favorite, most comfortable one I've worn.  I'll be getting them in and will post them on my website on Tuesday, along with the Face Shields.  The Hand Sanitizers are available now.  And if anyone knows of a front line worker I can donate this too, please email me at: spurr1@msn.com  Thank you, Janet

Starfish means Resilience April 20, 2020 14:17

Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties, which during this time could help.  Actually most anything can help, whether it's comfort food, a good laugh or a great Starfish necklace or scarf to send to special person of for yourself.

Starfish scarf worn by fashionable dog April 16, 2020 11:06

I'm focusing on smiling and remembering the good things, such as my friend Kim's dog wearing the Starfish scarf, which is available in 3 colors.  Starfish means resilience; the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.  

In Hope and Words starfish has always been meaning to me.  Maybe growing up each summer on Cape Cod has something to do with it.  Stay safe, smile and look for fashionable dogs, thank you, Janet 

April 10 - Music helps April 13, 2020 13:02

During this crazy time, I find if I turn off the news and turn on the tunes, I'm so much happier.  The other night on the Jimmy Fallon show, he introduced a singer Dua Lipa.  I usually hear a song which driving and download it later.  Dua Lipa's new album Future Nostalgia is great.  Actually every song on it rocks.  

And if you need help washing your hands, check out the new 'hand' earrings on the earrings page.  Thank you and be safe, smiles, Janet Spurr
