A good fundraiser gives me the giddy up and go...

Ever since I got back from Texas and had the carrot of purchasing property to flip was taken from me I've felt a little lost. I was really excited about having a new project and work that I could focus on while still having the flexibility of being the mom of an active teenager. Then here come the storms and devastation and the feeling of wanting to help (and putting things in perspective). Thanks to the wonders of facebook, an artist friend announced today that she is doing an online auction of art with all the proceeds going to the Oklahoma recovery costs. Inspiration was born. A reason to create and a way to help.
I signed up then went straight up to my studio and started making. These are two hand mirrors that I made immediately.

Bee-inspired hanging ornament.
This is actually a knock-off of a Paper Whimsey project that I'd been wanting to do. 
Altered cigar box.
Mixed media hanging collage ornament.
Altered journal (in packaging).
I had been thinking I'd like to go to Oklahoma and help when the time is right. Whether I do or not at least this is a start. The auction will begin on May 26th here, the link to the facebook page called Hope for Oklahoma. Please join in either buying, selling, or both.
