Thank you for making the Art Supply Drive a success!


I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be able to teach art journaling to three classrooms of 4th grade children this year.  Woo hoo!  Over 20 people donated art supplies, gift cards and checks during last month’s drive, and I’m so thankful for their kindness, generosity of spirit, and follow through.  These donations, combined with those received earlier this year, will provide instruction and supplies to over 120 at-risk children this school year.  I’m so happy and excited!

If you happen to be one of the people who wanted to donate but didn’t quite get around to it – don’t despair, and please don’t give up.  I accept donations year-round, whether it’s October, February, or April! It’s never too late.  :]  The kids benefit so much from the program and everything gets put to great use, so please consider giving the gift of art.
Speaking of art, I’ll be posting some of my own art on Thursday.  My left hand is still pretty gimped up, but I’ve managed to do a bit of work in my art journal with my right hand.  I’ll share some of what I’ve been creating with you, so please stay tuned.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful autumn thus far, dear readers.  Happy Tuesday!
Warm regards,
