Art Charity Auction for Hurricane Sandy

Please take a moment to stop by The Altered Page where 
Seth Apter is hosting a Charity Auction 
for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

The offerings are fabulous 
with new items being added daily.

100% of donations will be given to relief organizations 
to help provide for food, water and essentials 
for many who have lost everything.

I know it's been a long time since I've posted 
so if you're here 
it's good to see you...

And if you leave a comment 
you'll be entered in a giveaway for a skein 
of my red hemmed reclaimed silk sari ribbon.

Drawing will be held on Sunday, November 11th.

Recently a fellow blogger asked me if I found it harder to post 
on my blog the longer I waited. Well, given that my last post was written over 10 months ago...I must agree it's true. Procrastination? Deadlines?
Oh wonder I still have that reoccurring dream 
about the class I completely forgot until 
the final exam...
I'm bet I'm not alone here...

Anyway, I have returned with some exciting news to share with you. Author Seth Apter recently published his first book The Pulse of Mixed Media and I am honored to have one of my pieces included!

The book is an exciting and intricate survey of artists 
with many questions answered through words and art. My piece "passage" addresses the prompt "what is your biggest fear?"

 the number 21...a rite of passage...
though tempered as noted on Roman sundials

because life is open ended but finite...
jagged signs and symbols present themselves along the path, 
but we never truly know what they foretell 
or when the journey ends

the fear of stillness and silence, 
life deconstructed marching into the ages...

I must admit, my favorite part is where Seth dedicates the book to his mother, who passed away before the dream became a reality...

 It was she who gave me my sense of purpose and the desire and motivation to follow through with what I believe in, no matter how rough the road might become. I miss her deeply and hope that somehow, somewhere she knows that her dream for me of writing a book has now come true.

Much like just fills your heart doesn't it?

If you'd like to share in the excitement with an opportunity to win a copy of the book, please leave a comment below. I'll draw the name of one lucky winner on Mother's Day.  

The Pulse of Mixed Media is also available for purchase at Amazon.

colorful venture

stepping out of my box 
by offering colorful ribbons in my etsy shop

and some old favorites in fresh new muted shades...

I hope you've been having a wonderful summer...
as for me...
family time and kids have been occupying 
the bulk of my time...
though I am looking forward to 
returning to my artistic endeavors 
as soon as our summer schedule 
begins to take a breather...

thanks for stopping by!
