This is a sample of my new note cards that will be produced soon. This belongs to the series "soul notes", we will have a "Sophie Series" - and yes - a "Giving Sight Series" with proceeds for that going to Optometry Giving Sight. Keep checking in as I will be posting updates on selection and availability. Look for my 5 X 7 & 8 X 10 prints too!
MAKE a great day!

It is going to be a fund raiser for Optometry Giving Sight. - Please check out the link, it is a worthy cause. Mark and I will be there - It is October 11th - more details to follow. We are looking to raise $100 each - so if you would like to donate send me an email! If you would like to PARTICIPATE - send me an email and I will get you a registration form.

A great success and adventure for our "beginning" group of artists! A few flyers up in some local places of business - corner signs on the street - and word of mouth! We had traffic despite the heat & humidity and really put our names out there. It was great fun being together and meeting our shoppers. I think people were expecting a garage sale type of thing and were WOWED by our "ART THING!!!" Super special thanks to my husband who tolerated a week of choas (more than my normal choas) as we got close AND then all he did to help set up - forfeiting most of his plans for the day to do so!!! He is the man of my dreams.

Thanks to all that participated! Heidi (aka Renee) - Forget me not Bags - please click on her link - shop with her - the website photos really don't show how terrific these pieces are! Joan -aka EleganZ by JIX - truly beautiful gemstone jewelry! Joy Tallman - Joyful Designs - her Quilts drew people in off the streets! Anthony of Anthony's recycled works - fun creative custom lamps and more! and Chelsea - my future daughter in law with her fun candy towers for the holidays! and my special one for my Key West obsession! If you missed the show and would like to inquire about anyone of these artist or are interested in viewing something to purchase - send me a note and we will get you what you need!

It was a special day - and we will be moving forward with MORE !!!!

MAKE a great day!
