OAASIS Auction, Facebook Giveaway and Milestones....

Spring blessings to you and thanks for stopping by. I wanted to invite you all to visit the on-line silent auction in support of OAASIS (Oregon Abuse Advocates and Survivors in Service). I am honored to be a part of this non-profit through the Suvivor's Speakers Bureau. I am offering the above collection for the auction which will end on April 25, 2013.

I recently created a Facebook page for Healing Expressions and would be honored if you might stop by and add it to the pages "you like" and pass it on to those you think might be blessed by the healing content! It will be a work in progress but after several requests, I figured it was time to join and "be found"! To celebrate this page I am having an Art Blessing Giveaway for the journal, glass pendant ("Redeem the past") and magnet ("Breathe Gratitude") pictured below. Just "like" the giveaway picture on my Facebook page and I will add your name to the drawing which will take place on May 1, 2013!

The past few months have seen some milestones. I crossed the threshold into my 50's! My husband, family and 40 or so close friends surprised me with a beautiful party.  One dear friend had a lovely tea party for me and another flew me to San Francisco and I crossed the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time! I am grateful for this season of renewal and blessing.

Exciting News! Healing Expressions Now at Camas Antiques!

Happy New Year! A week before Christmas I got some news I had praying for and received an invitation from JoAnn Taylor, owner of Camas Antiques, to begin showcasing my work at her beautiful store located in Camas, Washington! The store has long been one of my favorite spots to visit with a mocha and a gal pal! It is filled with the most lovely items from many vendors, dealers and artists. I am excited to have a place locally to send my sweet buyers and those who attend my workshops in the Portland/ Vancouver area who might be looking for encouraging gifts and artwork. You can find my work now on the first floor of the store, the first case next to the register!
 I highly recommend stopping at Cafe Piccolo Paradiso first for baked goods and expresso and then stroll over to Camas Antiques to be inspired by two floors of creative treasures!

 In all the excitement of moving into my new spot and our time with family over the holiday, I am very behind in getting the winner announced for the holiday giveaway! Thank you to each of you who participated and for your patience. I drew a sweet name and the winner of December's Art Blessing giveaway is Lisa West! Be sure to take a moment to visit Lisa at her beautiful blog, Letters and Lace!
