Donor that was featured on Skull-A-Day!

Local artist, Nicole Pangas, creates fun skull tumblers, mugs, and steins on her etsy site.  I love that she was also featured on Skull-A-Day!  I thought this was the perfect post for Friday the 13th!

People are going to have to arm wrestle me for all the cool loot we have this year!  I'm planning on bidding on a bunch!  Friendly competition anyone?

An artist that has been with us since the beginning

is Denise Rohde!  Denise is a joy to be around and has supported us from the get go.  We originally met in 2007 before our inaugural ACCF event from a call to artists we had submitted on craigslist.  We are very proud to have highlighted Denise's work annually in our auction.  She has highlighted many Ann Arbor landmarks in her art over the years and they always get a lot of attention.  This year's submission will not disappoint!  Thank you Denise!!

No greenthumb needed for these garden submissions!

Kersten Fuith of PoFu, a local potter in our area, has donated some wonderful garden items for our auction next week!  A big congrats to Kersten as she was a featured seller on etsy this week!

I was drawn to her etsy site and was in awe of her toad houses!  They just spoke to me!  I envisioned one at my house and thought that some of our guests for ACCF would adore them just as much.

Thankful for lovely donors to our cause!

Last night I had the privilege of meeting Pam of Art of Being Pamela as I picked-up her kind donations for our auction.  What a sweet, sweet lady that I am so thankful found us on a craigslist post for donors.  Her work is beautiful and her energy was infectious!  I left her house feeling so great about all of our kind donors and their efforts to help us fight the fight against cystic fibrosis in my sister's memory.  THANK YOU Pam and all of our cherished donors!

Piggy Banks!

Our first submissions for Kids for the Cure of Cystic Fibrosis (KCCF) comes from Emily and Alex.

The girls painted piggy banks from Piggy Banks USA (Alex's grandma is the owner). 

Notice the banks with the roses...65 Roses is how many children pronounce cystic fibrosis.  Great detail ladies!   

We are proud to add Piggy Banks USA to our list of donors for 2011.  Not only did they donate the banks for this project, they also are donating gift certificates for auction on the big day.  Yahoo!

Great job and THANK YOU!
