Click here for their story. Every year they call on artists to submit a brick that shows creativity, originality and artistic talent. So I decided this would be fun to do and would help a worthwhile cause. I picked up my brick, (yes they even supply the brick) and thought about what my design would be. I had a few ideas but finally settled on a house. A house?? Well, in almost every house, there is someone who has been touched by cancer of some sort. A friend, a family member, a co-worker. So, that's why I chose a house.Breast cancer or cancer in general, seems to know no boundaries. I found out about an organization that helps raise money for Breast Cancer agencies. They raise money by having an auction of bricks. They are known as Bricks Along the Journey.
A very dear friend of mine died of breast cancer a few years ago. What a trooper she was. She fought for 8 long years and to see her you would never know she had breast cancer. So, Helen, this brick is for you, my dear friend.
I turned my brick in this morning just under the wire, as this was due in yesterday. A very good friend of mine, and an artist to boot, Angie, also submitted a brick and talk about art. Her entry should win a prize. My brick looks so primitive in comparison. Click here to see her brick. I actually had the opportunity to see Angie's brick, up close and personal. Believe me when I say the pic of her brick just doesn't do it justice.
These bricks will be auctioned off at at the 9th Annual Breast Cancer Brick Auction, Sunday October 10, 2p.m. - 5 p.m. at the Cintas Center on Xavier Univ. in Cincinnati, Ohio. This is a wonderful cause and I plan on attending the auction, so you know I will be taking pictures and posting them here on the blog.
Well that is it for now, thanks for stopping by, see you soon,
