my heart is very heavy today.
i got news last night that a friend's husband passed away after a sudden and massive stroke last week, leaving her in a place that i cannot even bear to imagine with her two little boys. kimberly is a new friend, one i have yet to meet in person but who i have gotten to know through blogging and emails and preparations for our trip to thailand. i want to help, i don't know how, but i want to help in some small way from my little spot here miles away from her. so for now, i want to help raise money for her - for medical expenses, funeral expenses...living without daddy and husband expenses. i know the blogging world is large and beautiful...and that we can pull together for a fellow wife, mother, scrapbooker in need.
today i am listing some silent auctions. you may bid in the comments section of each individual post (in any increment), and the bidding will close friday at 10pm PST, the highest bidder gets the goods!
i will also be making a video tutorial which i hope to have ready on friday - with a donation you can download the video and make a cool project with me (or just laugh at me, that works too!).
and of course, prayers and outpouring of love for this family in this sad time is beautiful too.
i love you, blog readers! and i thank you for helping to help kimberly through this in some little way.
this auction is for a custom painting - 24 x 24 inches on wood. the winner and i will chat and discuss colours and elephants and i will create your own magical mixed media piece!
(this is an example of what i have made for ivy's bedroom)
let the bidding begin :)
