I hate to feel helpless, don't you?
Lately, I have been feeling helpless a lot as I watch horrible tragedies unfold on television! Earthquakes, school shootings, tsunamis, tornados... It's horrible! So when I had the opportunity to make a difference and be helpful in the recent tornado events in Moore, OK I jumped on it.
Heather Ales of the incredible blog creating everyday organized a Facebook page, Hope for Oklahoma, where artists donated items to be auctioned off. The first round went wonderfully and I was happy to donate the Savannah Messenger Bag.
Being the first round went so smoothly (thanks to Heathers diligent work) a 2nd round is currently being organized!! This time I am donating The Timed Craft Mechanic Toolbelt.
It is a vintage toolbelt from Wolohan Lumber Co that I have embellished with vintage lace and fabric. I made a detachable flower from wedding veil, millinery, tissue paper and lace. I then attached an antique pocket watch. I think it came out wonderfully and I hope that my donation will be a great addition to such a wonderful cause!
For directions on how to bid for items and when the auction will open please see the facebook page, Hope For Oklahoma!
Thank you! and GOOD LUCK!!
