Virginia Spiegel has done it again! She has come up with another way to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. (My online buddy Jeanelle McCall designed the logo above!!)
I was heartbroken when she announced 2009 was the last year for FiberArt for a Cause. I loved being part of such a wonderful effort that benefited so many.
Not to worry! This year Virginia is coordinating ToteTuesday, another fun and creative way to get us all involved.
So many have been touched by cancer, it's a privilege to be able to do something constructive to aid the search for effective diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
ToteTuesday begins February 2 with five totes going up for auction. The totes are filled with books, supplies, fabric, tools, artwork and more. There are some preview photos of some tote goodies on Virginia's blog now, but each Tuesday the official tote themes and content will be announced. Here's a link to her blog for a preview http://www.virginiaspiegel.com/blog/
I'm working on a tote with a copy of my book, some rust-dyed fabric, and one of our popular new padfolios featuring thread painted photo montage on rust-dyed fabric. Previously, the padfolios have included note pads, but I've ordered small sketch pads and watercolor pads. Hopefully, they will arrive by February 2 and the new padfolio will have the new media pad in it!
