The pretty kitty above is Sophie, who is no longer able to help in my studio. We miss her & our Sunny Cat isn't a big help unless you want shredded ribbon or missing stuff! Gotta love kitties!
If Sophie could, she'd remind you that there's still time to help our friend Melody & her Bits & Pieces Art Program. I've already sent a big box of art supplies out to CA so Melody can continue her work teaching Art Journaling to at risk elementary school kids. You can learn how you can help by visiting the link & watching her video.
Another dear friend of ours has yet another way you can help. Queen Xina of SkyBluePink has a donation page to make it easy to donate items that are especially needed. YOU could also win a prize...read about it in this post from her weekly newlsletter:
The Queen wishes gently to remind thee that Our artist friend Melody is once again teaching several classes of at-risk children about art journaling. And the Bits & Pieces Art Program could use thine extra art supplies, or even a small donation. Her classes start in November, so now is the time to help! The official web site has a more complete explanation of her Art Program and an introductory video, too. If thou wishes to help this wonderful cause, we at SkyBluePink have created a web page where donations can be made to offset the cost of Melody's top 4 items: blank books, scissors, ink pads, and loteria sets. Thou canst simply add a small donation to thy regular shopping cart, and we will see that the items on Melody's list get purchased wholesale and shipped to her. Xina has declared that there will be a drawing for SkyBluePink Gift Certificates once this year's Bits & Pieces Art classes have begun. Everyone who donates to this project through this web page will be entered, and there will be multiple prizes! http://www.skybluepink.com/bitsandpieces.html
While you are visiting SkyBluePink, be sure to look around...there are always sooooooooo many delightful "must haves" for all your creative outlets.
Thanks for visiting & helping if you are able. BE SAFE if you are in the path of this massive storm.
