Flap Your Wings Tribute Fundraiser
I don't think this is limited to any one type of crafter. Anyone who is willing to put their heart and sole into something they create has that same common thread of caring for the other one. I belong to a monthly craft group, and although we don't all do the same thing (some scrapbook, crochet, sew, and journal, as I pound on my clay), the group always is uplifting and encouraging each other's work.
Of course, my main focus is on jewelry making, and those that are active in the pursuit of designing it. There are MANY fantastic blogs out there on the subject, done by just as fantastic authors. I have never met any of them, and yet, there is a kinship with all of them, and I know I am not alone in feeling this way.
It is almost the anniversary of having lost my mother to pancreatic cancer, so it indeed hit a cord with me. I had purchased two of Judy's works and have decided to incorporate them into the items I am creating. I will be offering up these pieces for this auction on the reveal date of April 14, and hope that they do well. Please come back on this date and see what I have done, and if you would like either please post your bid in the comment section, or e-mail me. The items will, of course, go to the highest bidder(s), postage free.
