PAINT-IN FUNDRAISING EVENT

This weekend of October 20 and 21, promises to be an exciting one! As many of you know, I am hosting a PAINT-IN at the studio. It's to help raise funds for Parents' Lifeline of Eastern Ontario.

PLEO is a very underfunded support group for parents who have children and young adults suffering from mental illness. I am inviting you to come paint an ornament or two or more...The ornaments and paints will be here waiting for your brush strokes or your crafty touch.

COYOTE WOODWORKS, upon hearing of this cause, immediately and very generously agreed to donate all the necessary wooden gift tags. Well... they arrived a few weeks ago...all 300 of them!!! Now, that's generosity!!!

For great wood surfaces at affordable prices, please visit Coyote Woodworks.

I'm encouraging any crafter or artist to participate in this fundraiser. If you can't paint at the studio, you can still help out.

Just paint or decorate or make an ornament between now and October 30, and mail it in to me.

Everyone participating will be acknowledged on this website. Please sign your ornaments and enclose your address so I can contact you.

Also know that 100% of the funds raised will be used for PLEO youth programs. Here's where you can learn more about PLEO.
