Rainbow Night Button Tree Autism Fundraiser

I created this button tree 2 months ago, and it has since been one of my more popular pieces, even though I have only been able to make 2, and wont be creating another until spring 2015, so I thought in the Christmas spirit, it is only right to auction one off as a fundraiser for an organization that is very close to my heart.

This fundraiser will take place during The Northern Collective‘s December sale- and apart from my listings, there will also be a dozen other crafty mamas who are selling very cool and unique handmade goodies, (not related to my fundraiser, but very awesome gift ideas nonetheless!)  so be sure to check out the whole sale here.

I will also have some autism awareness jewelry and some art cards, which were designed by young artists who are on the autism spectrum which will be available during this fundraiser! Read on for details, please!

I will be auctioning off a Rainbow Night button tree painting tomorrow (Tuesday, December 2nd) at 6PM PST for 24 hours. 100% of proceeds will support Mosaic Learning Society, who supports children and youth on the autism spectrum.

This cause is close to my heart, as I have two sons on the autism spectrum, including my lovely 9 year old non-verbal boy, who is heavily supported by the loving people at Mosaic!

Check out some of the other fundraising items I will have for sale from Tuesday until Friday until supplies last:

I made 12 of these leather puzzle piece bracelets to raise funds and awareness for Autism services, and would be so blessed if you would purchase one for yourself or a friend who loves a person with Autism :)

Now I am REALLY excited about this next item:

These awesome art cards were designed by the amazing students from Mosaic Learning Society, who supports children and youth on the autism spectrum.

Each pack of cards contains 11 different designs (!!! that works out to only $1.60 per card!!!), and is printed with the artist’s name on the back. 100% of proceeds will support Mosaic!

Mosaic Learning Society Victoria offers educational, social, and fine arts programs for children and youth on the autism spectrum.  Created by families for families, they provide innovative programs in adaptive environments to foster growth and confidence in all of the children they support.

And my final listing for this fundraiser are these:

I made a handful of these puzzle piece earrings with surgical steel, hypoallergenic hooks, because I care about your pretty little ears.

Thanks in advance for all your support! Again- 100% of the proceeds from my entire sale will support Mosaic, so please share this event and participate if you can! I will ship everything out before the Canada and U.S. Christmas post deadline (as per Canada Post) though I probably shouldn’t guarantee that they will get their in time! (Canada Post does though so there is a very good chance you can use these as Christmas presents and stocking stuffers!)

From the bottom of my heart I, and the other families who benefit from such vital autism support and services appreciate your support!

Set an alarm for the date and time of this sale- Tuesday, December 2 at 6PM PST- the painting auction will only last 24 hours, and the rest of my listings will be up until Friday night!

Thanks to the amazing Norther Collective for allowing me to host this fundraiser during their sale!

HAPPY DECEMBER EVERYONE!!!!

Over the [Button] Rainbow

Happy Monday! Make a button rainbow!

I’ve been seeing a lot of rainbow-inspired button art kicking around on Pinterest lately, and I thought I’d make my own.

I included my fave crafty sidekick a.k.a. Kid #1. She is the best.

Step 1: Put on your Christmas PJ’s  and draw the outline of a rainbow. I traced a bunch of different sized lids to make it perfect. Kid #1 just wung it. (Or would that be “winged it” or “wang it”?)

Step 2: Color in the rainbow:

OMG. Mine is SO much better…

Step 3: Buttons+glue=me+you= Love, do you hear me? See, I do remember Math 10.

Step 4: You can add clouds, or you can write “Mercie” in swirly, pink letters. Either-or, really ;)

Step 5: Frame without the glass- ISN’T THAT CUTE???

This piece of artwork would be perfect to brighten up that little spot in your hallway that needs a ray of sunshine. Or…

Remembrance Day

Busted Button:

I updated my Remembrance day post- Its meaning has expanded for me in the last couple of years.

I’ve wanted to paint poppies for a while now, and I finally unpacked my painting supplies, (it was a long month without them!) so I figured it was the perfect time to try it! And it happens to be Remembrance Day in a few days too, so this is extra-good timing.  I painted this for my dad: (Can you see the hidden paper plane in the sky? I thought that would be an interesting touch!) I used a big, circle piece of mat board as my canvas and acrylics as my paint of choice. My dad’s dad died in World War II, so I think he will extra-appreciate this painting. Here is a write up about my grandfather and his aircrew that went down on Feb 20 1944: http://www.aircrewremembered.com/raf1944/2/bowenjack.html He was Pilot 2. It’s so crazy to see how young most of these men were when they made such a huge…
