Let's Get This Party Started!



The 2010 Pink Artists Block Party has officially started!

If you saw my previous post, then you know that I started blogging right after joining my very first call to artists ... it was the call to create 2"x2" art squares to be used in the skirt of an art doll being created to raise funds for breast cancer research. Many artists contributed more than a single square, so brilliant Monica decided to send out the extras to a number of brilliant artists. She asked each of them to create a 10"x10" block and then return them to her to be joined into one amazing are quilt ... well, they did their part and she's done hers ... now it's your turn at a chance to make a difference ... and possibly win the AMAZING art quilt ... or a number of other art prizes donated to the cause ... like this:


"Tribute"



an altered tin I created especially for this event



with Love Squared right inside to keep an eye on your dreams,
wishes or other precious little treasures you store inside




the outside is covered in pictures of some art squares that ended up on Love's skirt.

For more information, details on purchasing raffle tickets and a view of the entire prize wheel of awesome offerings, please visit HERE.

You can also help by posting this button:



on your blog sidebar with a link to the post ... every little effort helps!

Hi you...*LOVE* the tribute tin...it is fantastic and so perfect for the occasion. What a treasure to cherish from the Pink Artist Project...it's perfect! Someone is going to be a very LUCKY winner!

Isn't it exciting! The art quilt is so gorgeous and the art in the prize wheel is beautiful! I know we will raise some big bucks for breast cancer. What an honor it has been to be a part of this project! XO ~Lisa

P.S. Loved seeing your PA squares again, the two shrines...what a hoot - so glad they each got one, and your ofrenda turned out fantastic...you honored all six lives beautifully.

Your tin is gorgeous! So gorgeous!

I have to tell you, you are a very generous artist that donates so much of your talent and time. I've gotten lost today in all of the links for worthy causes on your sidebar. I am overwhelmed by what a giving community you are a part of and a bit overwhelmed by what little part I could possibly do. I don't know where I will start, but you have inspired me to start somewhere! Inspiration at its finest you deliver here my dear! I'll keep you posted on what I do, but just so you know . . . you are making a difference.

Really NICE! This is a yummy tin. It's great that you are reminding us. It's a wonderful project.

I love the patchwork look, the colors and texture. I'm inspired to alter a tin. It's been a couple of years since I did one!

Dear Michelle,
Haven't had much time to get to the blog lately, but I wanted to thank you for always stopping by with a kind comment. It makes me think back in time, to the screen door in the kitchen...you look up and the nextdoor nieghbor is there with a plate full of fresh baked cookies! I'm always pleased to see you've stopped by! Thank you,
Misty

Hello again Michelle ~
Your beautiful tin arrived in Virginia today!
Thank you SO very much for creating something so lovely.
The details in how you finished the tin are super!
I also must share with you that I spotted one of my 2 inch squares on the front of your tin.
The blue heart with golden threads over the word "transformed" :)

You wrapped the gift so sweetly too!
oh and the healing crystal and hearts inside the perfectly crocheted pouch were an extra special surprise when I opened the tin.
Many many thanks for bringing so much sunshine my way!
Brightest of Blessings to You and Yours!
oxoxo ~*~ Patty
