Can we talk about the way the air smells inside Frosty's? Holy cow...the donuts, the coffee...it was difficult to resist! Generally speaking, I am not a donut eater, but OH MY GOD. I left with a twist at the end of the day and because I love my husband, Terry, I shared it with him...but let me tell you: the only thing that slowed down my inhalation of that delicious treat was me feeling the need to exclaim "This is SO good! How can this be so good?" every few bites.
sunny skies and yummy scents!
I don't know if it's because I was nervous or if it was because of the early start, but I worked like a demon and actually finished my painting around 3:15. The winning ticket was drawn just before 4pm, and I'm happy to say that the winner of "Earth Flower" is one of my oldest and dearest friends (and one of my most prolific collectors, too), Tim Molloy! Thank you to everyone who stopped by to see me that day, to Frosty's for hosting me, to everyone who helped to share/promote the event, and to everyone who bought raffle tickets online or in person. Together, we were able to raise $130 for the Cathance River Education Alliance (thank you, CREA, for all your wonderful work)! Consistent, small steps can make a big difference: after five Brushstrokes With Impact (tm) "Paint-a-Thon" events, we've raised over $1000 for charity! Woo hoo!
"Earth Flower" waiting to go to its new home!
