Artists Flood Relief

Last Sep­tem­ber Col­orado was real­ly hit hard with unex­pect­ed flash floods.  Dams broke, roads were washed out, rivers took con­trol, and lives were lost.  It’s just so dev­as­tat­ing.  Com­plete towns were evac­u­at­ed, lives lost, peo­ple unac­count­ed for, homes & busi­ness­es demol­ished.

Rocky Moun­tain Mem­o­ries is host­ing a silent auc­tion to help Cross­roads Min­istries. This non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion has pro­vid­ed a total of 725 flood relief assists but their funds are deplet­ing.  Any assis­tance would be appre­ci­at­ed. Up for auc­tion are many great pieces from var­i­ous artists. I’ve donat­ed auto­graphed copies of  all three of my books Delight In The Details, Delight In The Sea­sons and Delight In The Art of Col­lage, plus sev­er­al oth­er items.  

Plaster Birdhouse

This shab­by chic bird­house was shared on my blog in July of last year. If you want to read how I cre­at­ed it you can check out the blog post HERE. If you wish to bid on this one of a kind home decor item you can do so HERE.

Plaster Bird

The base of this one of a kind hand­made blue bird of hap­pi­ness is cre­at­ed from chip­board then wrapped in plas­ter. Once the wrapped lay­ers of plas­ter dried I sten­ciled addi­tion­al plas­ter to the bird using a vin­tage doily coast­er. I then added lay­ers of paint, per­fect pearls and stamped words. To com­plete my blue bird of hap­pi­ness I accent­ed it with scal­loped strips of vin­tage sheet music and altered mul­ber­ry flow­ers. To bid on this one of a kind home decor item click HERE.

Etsy Items3

This set of hand­made orna­ments is cre­at­ed from scal­loped chip­board, vin­tage sheet music and plas­ter hol­i­day fig­ures. These hol­i­day fig­ures are cre­at­ed from molds cre­at­ed from vin­tage orna­ments I have in my col­lec­tion. Each fig­ure is hand paint­ed by me and all 5 orna­ments are sprin­kled with crys­tal glit­ter and accent­ed with Plat­inum Stick­les.  To bid on these one of a kind hol­i­day orna­ments click HERE.

I also have a hand­made tex­tile cuff list­ed that I threw in at the last minute. This means I for­got to get a pho­to. It is cre­at­ed from a vin­tage quilt that was cre­at­ed by my great great aunts and has lots of baubles sewn to it like, rhine­stone trim, satin flow­ers, beads, vin­tage but­tons and linen burlap.

Bottlenose Dolphin

After see­ing all the dev­as­ta­tion while there on vaca­tion this past April, my dad donat­ed one of his hand-carved bot­tlenose dol­phins sim­i­lar to the one shown above.  The bot­tle nose dol­phin is cre­at­ed from But­ter­nut North­ern hard­wood and sits on a Man­zani­ta burl base. This piece stands 7″ high and 10″ long. To bid on this item click HERE.

If you miss the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pur­chase one of these auc­tion pieces, please vis­it Col­orado Flood Relief Auc­tion and gen­er­ous­ly DONATE to this cause.  The auc­tion clos­es on the 22nd.

Thank you for all your sup­port!
