As part of this years "Spring Eggstravaganza" at the First Baptist Junior Academy of Jacksonville, businesses and parents alike have donated an amazing array of baskets and items for one of the years biggest fundraisers. I offered my services on several of the projects and the latest one I've completed is what I will show you today! One of our parents has a uncle that makes the MOST adorable wooden toys and furniture and I was given the raw wood items to personalize for the event. If you are interested in supporting this wonderful school, please follow the links to find out how you can purchase tickets to the event, which takes place on April 5, 2013 from 6-8 pm and includes a fabulous catered mean from Buca di Beppo .
Help rescue the Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Support the Arts! I'm helping, you can too!
In my family, we have a few dog breeds that tickle the heart strings a bit more than the rest, though we love them all! Among our favorites is The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and there have been many precious and well-remembered members of the family from the breed. An opportunity to support an event benefiting rescue organizations dedicated to the King Charles Spaniel came across my table. I did not have to think long about whether or not to participate. I didn't have much time, but I created an original piece for the auction from my imagination. (I really just wondered what it would be like to be my Aunt Susan...walking her brood of boys down the street.) Thus "Morning Out With The Boys," (pictured above) was created, and I am hoping that it will help those honorable dog lovers out there and these precious animals they are fighting to rescue. Would you like to be a fan of the Cavalier Brigade?! Would you like to participate in The auction or offer to assit your aid in a future event? Please follow the links above to view the MANY ADORABLE items up for bid. It isn't just art either! The Auction is open from March 17-23, 2013. Highest bidder wins! It's all for the puppies! Thanks for stopping by and we'll see you at the auction!
One of my newest and more hilarious endeavors lately has been the "Handprint Animals." My daughter is in Pre-K and I was asked by the office staff if I could help turn students hands and footprints into animals for a quilt they were putting together for a fundraiser. Well, suffice to say that I became slightly obsessed with creating these fun keepsakes...and I can't wait to see the finished quilt with all 130 hands from the entire Junior Academy! I am sorry I don't have ALL of the before shots to go along with the finished painted squares...but if you can see the hand or foot inside the image (Which I certainly hope you can,) then you can create them at home with your own children (or alone in your room...I won't tell.) Like this idea? Don't fret...I'm full of these! Check back next time for a new batch of critters!
Thanks so much for stopping by. See ya real soon!
