Here is the promised Etsy for Autism Contest piece. I ended up not putting the words, "Childhood is a journey, not a race." on it. I just couldn't get them to look right on there.
We should have a treasury named Etsy for Autism posted for your viewing pleasure beginning today, April 1st. It is a contest in that the item with the most views at the end of the month wins the contest. Don't let that stop you from buying something you want on the first day, though! The main purpose of the contest is to raise money for Autism Speaks. The head of the study that Rexy is in, Geraldine Dawson, has actually been hired as the Chief Scientific Officer for Autism Speaks. They will be doing more research into causes, therapies, etc with her at the helm. Please stop by Etsy and take a look at everyone's merchandise. If the treasury isn't up yet you can find the items by searching for "Etsy for Autism Contest." that should get you the most results.
UPDATE! HERE IS THE TREASURY!
Here is what I wrote in my description of the piece:
I made this mixed media painting with that in mind.
I was hideously late getting this done. Can you believe Rexy was sick AGAIN!?!? Gah! In the last six weeks I think she has picked up every little bug within a ten mile radius. 5 times in 6 weeks! She missed another week of school. Sigh...
But! I made more stamps for Crusade #18! Well, I made two and then I carved some stuff on the scraps. First, I made a little bunny for Rexy to stamp with. It's still a little mushy. I could carve it a little deeper and it would be better, I think. Then I made this flaming heart. (More of a symbolic flame, don't you think?) Since my girl was born on
Valentine's day I've become a heart-person. I was never one before this.
Thanks again, Michelle, for a fun project. Time for stencils...
