Well, what a great response from you on the art kits made as benefit for Art For Aid http://www.artforaid.ca. (If you are new to this topic, see my previous post)
In all, 24 out of my 36 kits have been spoken for in just one day (I posted yesterday) , so the donations for buying the mylar blankets have been rolling in! Wow. I must say I did not predict this level of interest! Thank you all so very much; I am truly grateful for you and touched by your willingness to support Art For Aid in this way.
So great has the interest been, in fact, that all the larger size kits at $15 ( with 30 items) have “sold” and will be mailed out in turn this week. So I am out of large kits, folks. But never fear – there are more kits! Even if a tad smaller.
12 kits remain available: both the 20 item Medium kits (in 9″ x 12″ envelopes) and the 10 item Small kits (in 6″x 8″ envelopes).
The papers included in the Medium and Small sets are of the same genres and quality as those in the sold-out larger set, I promise.
NB: The papers inside the envelopes are various sizes, not necessarily the size of the envelope, but all are useful for mixed media work like collage, cards, artist books, journal pages, etc; and of course, I hope that the papers can inspire your own experiments in art.
After this series of kits reaches new homes, and I get feedback on the contents, I will look at whether it could be appropriate to make a second series available to donors.
So please, if you can, keep on donating and help me liquidate the current stock of 12 kits.
Don’t forget – email me BEFORE you donate to check with me if there are kits left for you in this round. wendy(dot)feldberg(at)sympatico(dot)ca.
It is getting colder each day and the mylar blankets we are buying for FN families become daily more valuable to their recipients. And we had our first snow today in Ottawa.
