Summer is long gone. Fall is nearly devoid of all color. New England is known for its breathtaking foliage and autumn wonder, but the window is small. It feels like i blinked and the color was gone. Last weekend, I knew it would be my last chance of the year to enjoy the warm sunshine and colors in my yard. Tiny still-lifes everywhere. I didn’t want these moments it to go unappreciated and forgotten.
Sure enough, here it is the following weekend, and the grey veil has settled upon us. The sky is drab, the blossoms are shriveled, and the trees are almost bare. Sandy threatens to wipe out what remains. It will be cold and grey for the next five months. Goodbye color and light…for now. This is where art comes in.
Stay safe in the storm.
Well, part of my order for Peace on Earth came in today! This is the first time i am seeing the actual products. The cards are still in transit to my house, but the stamps are adorable… and yes, they are real stamps. (Why does everyone keep asking me that?) (-:
It was probably somewhat bold of me to go ahead and peddle my products before I actually saw the products, but I had to meet a deadline…and it’s for a good cause! I did loads of research so I’m confident Zazzle will do a great job with printing. If not, I will just have to implement Plan B… which is yet to be determined.
So anyway, thank you to those of you who already made a purchase on good faith, as I basically wing it. For those of you who would like a closer look first, I will post the photos here as i receive them. Here are the stamps…

Stewie in his bag, spreading Awareness this October.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Wow, we are well into October already… time for us to get out our PINK and raise some awareness. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in full pink regalia. I am not alone in my mixed emotions about all the pink fuss. But I happen to be a hardcore fan of the color pink, and I fully support the donning of all its shades where intentions are sincere.
An event, and cause, at the company I work for, is one such place this sincerity is found. The other day, the first design from TheCreativeDaisyArtProject made its debut at this event. Peace on Earth is now available, and 100% of the proceeds I earn for any item in this design will be donated to causes providing breast cancer treatments and prevention.
The card is available in folding or postcard style, and there are also matching stamps that can be purchased separately. We can create other products in this design upon request.
This is the first of many drawings, photos, sketches and paintings being created and collected for the sole purposes of raising some cash for various good causes, and spreading smiles and warm-fuzzies across the world.
Please visit the link below if you would like to make a purchase. http://www.zazzle.com/skybluewithdaisies/gifts
My intention is to post periodically and regularly about the project, it’s target causes, and the people behind the art. You can visit my dedicated blog, which will include updates on funds donated, and more details about the project.
Thank you for your kindness. Please pass on the pink, and feel free to share this link, TheCreativeDaisyArtProject, with your readers… your colleagues… your facebook friends!
Have a happy, healthy holiday season!
