My art offering to Jacoby Art Center’s BRAS ON BROADWAY breast cancer awareness fundraiser – blown, pressed, dichroic glass, recycled chandelier crystals, pearls, lace, wire, beads, brass, & many hours!
After being part of Bras on Broadway during October 2013, this bra will be donated to South Hampton Health Care Center in St. Louis, Missouri, where I have been a patient for almost 25 years.
I will DONATE proceeds from every Harley-Davidson glass suncatcher I sell at Grafton Artisan Village on July 28, 12-4, to the MARCH OF DIMES BIKERS FOR BABIES fund.
I will be demonstrating jewelry-making at Grafton Artisan Village, 15 E. Main Street, Grafton, Illinois, this Saturday – and, in honor of the Metro East March of Dimes Bikers for Babies ride, I will donate proceeds from my Harley Davidson-themed items to the cause.
Live to ride – ride to live – and help others along the way!
Another Christmas come & gone – did you GIVE what you wanted to for Christmas? Not Did you GET what you wanted – I meant GIVE.
I found more joy in giving & surprising people this year – people who did not expect it – way more than in the nice things I received as gifts.
I don’t regret anything I gave – my gift was how it made me feel so good. I am thankful to have an art form (glass jewelry) that most people appreciate receiving.
I started out this holiday season to give handmade & homemade – and I did, and it brought joy! I love the handmade, homemade gifts I received as well – much more than the things box stores were foisting off on people. (Enough with the microfleece already!)
I would have liked to give more to those in need – but at least I gave some, in my corner of the world. when and where I could.
My Christmas moment this year came in AUGUST – writing 15 letters “fromt Santa’s elves” to school children for a friend’s friend who is a teacher. I had a jolly time, and the kids who got them enjoyed them too I heard…
Spreading joy and kindness – that’s what it’s all about…even if it doesn’t help the bottom line – it helps each heart.
May you always delight in simple things and give from the heart!
