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.


Our First Snow.

Woke up to a chilly morning with a rainbow and snow flurries.

 We could see snow on top of the mountains. 

Our friend send me this picture this morning.


A Gift

I had one of life’s rewards tonight when this little girl now a young lady 31 called after 24 years. Nicole lived in New York City and was in a program called Fresh Air Kids and she came to our home in the country for two weeks each summer when we lived in rual Bradford, Pa.  We shared so many memories and tears this evening. Thank You Nicole, your call this evening was a gift




In anticipation for my new GTT Cricket torch coming this week I made Jimmy Cricket.

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. 

I know some of you are afraid of clowns …but look he is a happy clown. : ))
