Handmade for Newtown

Have you guys heard of Handmade for Newtown? This is an online auction organized by my friend Rachael and From The Heart Auctions to benefit the parent community in Newtown, CT after the horrible massacre that happened there a few weeks ago.

Handmade For Newtown Auction

I donated an original piece of burlap art to the auction to help raise money for the cause. It's called Sunset Birds. It is handmade with fabric designs appliqued onto a piece of upcycled burlap from a coffee sack. The artwork is stretched onto a wooden frame, professionally finished and ready for hanging!

You can see the auction listing for it here and if you'd like, bid on it!

Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of what's open for bids:

Pretty awesome, don't you think? Go check out the auction album and bid away!

And here's my artwork again, just because I took a bajillion pictures of it, ha ha!
