See my new fabulous necklace. This was a special surprise that involved three great people. Thanks to all of you for making this so fun. My mom helped out on this end, she sent me on a treasure hunt to find this and I was so surprised. This necklace is so fab and is a stunning work of art. Thanks sabre, the master mind behind the plan and the creator of this necklace that 'belongs to me". It made me feel special.

A group of us on etsy decided we would create things in our shop to donate the proceeds to support cancer research. Over 240 dollars have been raised already and we have donations pouring in. What a great bunch of people. If you would like to buy one of the donated items with the proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen foundation, please go here http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=5817123&page=1
Ok my parents are residing their house, so they are tearing off the old cedar. I gathered up some pieces, stretch on some muslin and painted it. I plan on doing a bunch of them and sell them in my etsy shop. They are very rustic, in fact I didn't even square up the boards, but they are cedar so they smell good and will chase away moths.
I just completed this painting as a donation piece for a great local cause. The money of the sale of this goes to a non-profit clinic in our town that supports children. A facet of that clinic is the soon to be Austism Clinic to help and support those who love someone with autism. Children causes are always close to my heart. I am blessed with three beautiful children myself, that I would give anything for. This is just a little thing I can give to support other children and also my daughter who is autistic.
