More pictures of Sisterhood

My piece for the Art Saves Lives - Silent Auction

This is the piece I made for the Silent Auction that our doll club sponosred to raise money for Breast Cancer Research. The piece is called Sisterhood. I am a breast cancer survivor. My sister is a Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor. I realized that cancer touches all of us and we are changed forever by the experience. My piece is about the sisterhood that I have experienced with other women like myself who face this disease head on and live the premise that failure is just not an option.

My Latest Doll

This is Aislin, meaning dreamer; and boy did I feel like I was in a dream attending the retreat. It was wonderful, magical, scary, fun, mind blowing ~ Raven (aka Jean) and Sherry are the most gifted teachers that I have ever experienced. They can reach into your soul, pull out the most amazing techniques and, in Raven's case - toss you from the nest and watch as you fly! And, she does this all with this sweet little innocent smile; if you ever see it - RUN!! LOL

Now I am working on the dolls for the Saving the Tatas charity event!

Call for Artists - Save the TaTa's

Hey there, I am so excited about an upcoming even that our doll club is co-sponsoring with Mary Ellen, owner of Gallery 225, here in Gilbert AZ.
Our event, "Save the TaTa's" will be a silent auction and is going to be held on October 15th at Gallery 225. We are putting out a call to artists to donate their work to this special event where all the proceeds will go to the charity.
As a breast cancer survivor I am "over the moon" excited about this event. If you are interested in contributing as an artist, let me know and I will get you the guidelines and the submission form.
If you're not an artist, but would still like to help out - we're looking for any contributions, donations, etc. Just let me know and I will get you the information.

Working toward Expo

Well I am working away at getting ready for the Expo, Spring into Summer, at the Intuitive Development Center next Saturday.

I have a line of dolls ~ Intuitively Inspired and they represent the four ways of getting your messages. Knowing, Seeing, Feeling & Hearing! I am very excited.

I have a batch of fabric sitting in a solution of some very strong tea; my first attempt at dying fabric in this manner. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
