December. It’s almost here. I have taken a vow to avoid, as much as possible, the commercial side of December this year. My neighbor trimmed her red-twig dogwoods and those colored switches are going to be part of my “au natural” decorating scheme. It may look like I’m not in my neighborhood’s blindingly bright holiday spirit, but I have pinecones and grapevine from my yard and I’m sure my porch (with a disco ball???) will look interesting, at the very least.
Of course, if there’s a good buy on something I need, I’m not going to pass that by. I just bought a new tent last week online and now I am set for my next Boundary Waters adventure. I think the mark of a good holiday season is to not be stressed by all the “Must Do” items and to choose where your time and money goes.
I hope you are out there looking for a way to do December differently and will consider all the ways Fiberart For A Cause (FFAC) can help you indulge yourself AND do a good deed at the same time.
FFAC’s very generous Promotion Partner for December is Iris Karp of Attached, Inc. Iris is donating 20% of every Mistyfuse purchase from Mistyfuse.com in December to the ACS through FFAC. So stock up in December and help raise funds for cancer research and education at the same time.
Art, Nature, Creativity, Life, my ongoing online book, has received rave reviews and is available only by direct donation to the American Cancer Society through FFAC.
Take time for yourself, make a cup of tea, and be inspired by thoughtful essays, gorgeous photos, and haikus. Art, Nature, Creativity, Life is also a great gift for all the creative and caring people in your life.
Sue Bleiweiss of the online zine, Fibre&Stitch, is sponsoring special bonus drawings throughout December for all subscribers to Art, Nature, Creativity, Life. Iris and Sue are teaming up for a December Grand Prize random drawing that will make someone very happy.
There’s lots of other bonus drawings for subscribers to Art, Nature, Creativity,Life, including a limited number of these art angels by Peg Keeney.
It’s not often you can make a donation to the ACS, receive a subscription to an ongoing, inspiring book in return AND be automatically entered in great bonus drawings. But thanks to generous Friends of FFAC, it’s happening!
If you are shopping for gifts that are unique and meaningful, The Fiberart For A Cause Shop focuses on artwork with the themes of hope, serenity and beauty.
All profits ($5 per item) are donated to the American Cancer Society through FFAC. As well as three of my Boundary Waters images, the Shop features Karen Stiehl Osborn‘s
And Jeanelle McCall’s
