I've been out of town for almost two weeks and it seems forever since I posted on the blog! I went to visit my mother who celebrated her 80th birthday on June 15th. We are blessed that she is in remarkable health and an extraordinarily active woman. We call her the energizer bunny! I find it hard to keep up with her.
I returned this morning and have spent the day regrouping - wading through snail mail and e-mails, doing laundry and just trying to get back in the swing of things here.
About a year and a half ago I was involved in 2 collaborative "chunky book" art projects to be sold with proceeds going to a fellow artist, Robin Whittemore, who was battling breast cancer. You can read about her journey at http://www.fightforherlife.org. Both books were recently listed on etsy - you can check them out at: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=12451734 and http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=12452035. The tea book has already sold but the nature book is still available. Unfortunately, Robin died before this effort was completed, but the proceeds will now be used to help benefit other patients.
