I want to apologize if in my previous post I came off as being more concerned with myself and my insecurities about my work than the real reason of this fundraiser. I didn’t realize until after I posted that my chatter about this may come across incorrectly. This auction isn’t about “me” or my work, but about helping out a family in need. I didn’t think that showing pictures of my pieces to be put up for auction and talking about it might be taken as my being self-centered about the whole thing. I’m so sorry if it did--I’m just very enthusiastic about helping out with this and want everyone who reads my blogs to know about this wonderful fundraiser Lisa, Stephanie and Gerrie have put together!
Anyway, I finished up the squirrel bag Friday evening. I love the lining I picked out for this one (as does my entire family... they’ve all commented on it more than once!); its so fun and crazy and green. Lately green has been appealing to me. Perhaps it it because the world is no longer green? Everything has been so drab lately; I always forget how it looks outside this time of year. I’m dying for it to snow and cover everything with a soft white blanket... it would just be so pretty!
I want to thank everyone who has commented on that paper-covered bangle I posted about! As my Christmas present to all my lovely blogging friends, I’m going to post a photographic tutorial on how to make one of your own later this week. Perhaps it would be a pleasant last-minute gift or way to spend Christmas Eve (before all the partying begins!)? Stay tuned for that in the next few days.
