I just came across your journal entry - now over a year ago. I have shared it with several people at the school including our principal, art teacher, and the winning bidder of this "masterpiece". Words really can't express how grateful we are for your time, talent, and beautiful heart. You gave our children an amazing gift by sharing your art. Truly a memorable experience for us all. It is fitting that I found this on Thanksgiving weekend as you are truly a person that I am thankful for. All that you are and all that you do. Take care and I hope to talk with you soon!

Stacie - what a beautiful story and experience! -And the finished piece was stunning, no wonder it went for 2k! The letters were fabulous, too. What a treat. I'm sure some of them will come away from that experience as artists for the rest of their lives.

What a beautiful experience for you. And those pieces of art work the kids made was fantastic. Wonderful job you did with them. You would make a great art teacher, the world needs more people like you. Kids are so short changed by art instructors today, you would be giving all of them a great favor in teaching them art.

Oh my gosh, Stacie! This is just THE BEST story, made even cuter by the fact that your husband was so dedicated to the bidding cause! I'm soooo excited for you that it went for $2000... and those kids! Imagine how good you made them feel? I'll bet you launched a few new art careers that night. Big hugs, Shari


What a fantastic story! Maybe it is time to get out of the cubicle and find your niche. Sounds like you have! Maybe working with kids is right up your alley...
see you soon!


What a perfect story to share with all of us this Sunday before Thanksgiving.
I have to agree about children at this sweet age.
I can just see their joy at the beautiful piece that they created with your help.
I volunteered for several years at our local elementary school and always have such good memories of those great children.
Bless you and your dear husband.
