Last week, I received an email through Etsy asking me to donate some art for a silent auction intended to raise funds for an adoption. I didn't think much of it at first but I went to their blog and read the story behind this request. This Louisiana couple has been trying to have a baby for 7 years and finally, decided to adopt. They are currently in the middle of the process, with the baby due on April 15. So, after exchanging a couple of emails with the future-adoptive-mom's sister (who contacted me in the first place), I decided to help out. I have a 1.5-year-old son who, while making me fear for my own sanity at times (yep, already!) and taking way much more time and attention than I bargained for, is the joy of my life. I am sure that all of the above will become true for this brave couple :)
The auction will be held tonight starting at midnight through Sunday midnight at http://thescottsblog.wordpress.com/. In addition to a number of fantastic things donated by artsy and crafty people from all over U.S., you will have an opportunity to bid on these three archival prints:
"Cherry Blossom II"
Hoping to send these to some familiar names!
