Bricks Along the Journey

This past weekend was the 7th Annual Breast Cancer Brick Auction, "Bricks Along the Journey." I created the brick, "Wind Beneath My Wings" (pictured above) to donate to this year's auction.

from the auction website: "The "Bricks Along the Journey" Project was established as a symbol of life, rejuvenation, and hope. Bricks salvaged from the rubble of old buildings have been transformed into stunning works of art. This transformation is the perfect metaphor for the experience shared by all Breast Cancer survivors. We take these bricks that have been knocked down and bring them to life again. The brick auctions have been instrumental in raising money for various, local Breast Cancer agencies."

I was in awe of the beautiful and unique bricks—over 300 in all!—up for auction to support this important cause.

This spunky gal was one of my favorites by the talented and acclaimed Pam Kravetz.

A few more personal favs...waaaaaay too many to post here!!

The goal of this year's auction was to raise $120,000. With the positive energy and the large crowd this event drew, I'm sure once final tallies are in that goal will be met. One brick closer to the cure.

I LOVE the cicada and the three little pigs. What a great showcase of creativity for a wonderful cause.

I didn't realize you had a blog. Oh my, now I need to become a regular. Everything is just delightful! How lucky you went to Raven's nest. You know I'll be teaching at Valley Ridge next year.....would be too cool if you came, hint, hint.
And how do I find a pic of your Red Bull thingie? I saw it in a newsletter and would love to see it.
