I am a "PINK ARTIST" and proud of it

Dear sweet friends.

I am very excited to share this with you all!
I have joined the "PINK ARTISTS FOR A CURE"
and I hope that you will all find it in your heart to join in too!
It's a simple request for a wonderful cause!


is a community of artists joining together
to create one joint art doll to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

When doll is complete, it will be mailed in to Art Doll Quarterly™
before finally being auctioned off on eBay at a later date.

No you don't have to make a doll.....

You create......
one 2x2 inch square with a cloth base using your chosen medium
in ANY way you feel inspired to do so for this project!

(ideas, but definitely not limitations might include... name of loved one,
motivational word, favorite quote, theme of LOVE, HEART, DANCE, BREASTS,
a face, an eye, a hand, a pose, a script that dances from your fingertips, a beaded symbol,
a thread embellished design, a photo, a digitally enhanced image, poetry you wrote or
a portion of a poem you LOVe, scripture, felted object (wing, heart), thick layer of
paint with rubber stamping, rusted object, a clay face...
let the THEME of LOVE inspire you). Sometimes just looking around your studio
or work space will INSPIRE you! See something sitting on your desk that you've been
wanting to use but didn't know what to do with???

Read all the details here at Monicas blog......

Please join in and help spread the word.....

We all know a family member, friend or neighbor whom has been affected by cancer.

This is such a simple way to help raise money to find the cure!

Thank you so much

Hugz and blessings, Dolly

P.S. if you do decide to join please let me know
as I would love to post your name here!
