I know this isn't my usual fun, happy arty post of beautiful things, but we have been touched by tragedy in the last few days. Wild bush fires have swept through our state, thousands of people are homeless, nearly 200 are dead and whole beautiful little towns surrounded by big wonderous forests have been wiped off the map. Our best friends have lost their whole house, town and everything in it, thank God they are ok. We are all in shock and so desperatley want to help those who have survived!
So besides giving money to help at the Red Cross, I am trying to get creative and think of some other ways to help! I feel limited in what I can do being at home with two little ones so I have cleaned out every cupboard in our house and given some things to our friends and lots of toys and clothes to the charities who are helping those in need. Its amazing what a household can accumulate that it really doesn't need! I urge you wherever you are in the world to look through your house too, are there things in there others in need could use that you don't really need or want, that you really could survive without?
I am hoping to auction some Art works ( will let you know when if its online! ) and if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them!
