We love you Beemer!

This past Saturday Beemer was out raising money for the local humane society.

A BIG thank you to Beemer, her Mom Joey, and BMW of Asheville for all they do for the Asheville Humane Society in Asheville, NC.  Beemer raised $10,000 for the Humane Society last year and is on her way to raising more this year.

Beads for Food – Novembers Fund Raiser

LEST Street Team is a group of wonderful lampwork artist who sell on Esty. We had a fund raiser in October to raise money for Breast Cancer.

 Alice was sold at my Etsy Shop PaulaNC and I raised 60.00 in bead sales for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the month of October.  Alice as also featured on The Art Zoo Blog on November 4, 2008. What a pleasant surprise for me to see my work shown on their blog.


November’s Fun Raiser is “Beads for Food” I will be donating one can of food to our local Sheppard Care Food Panty in Bat Cave, NC for every sale I have in the month in November at my Etsy Store PaulaNC.


Cute enough to wear pink.

 October LEST Street Team challenge is “Tuff enough to wear pink”. Many of the members are donating a portion of their profits to breast cancer awareness foundations. Well, I am not sure if she is tuff enough but she sure is cute enough to wear pink.
