Wow! I first want to say a huge "Thank You!" to all the kind and sweet comments about my Rosie! I cant tell you how that makes my heart so happy and grateful for you! As I touched on with my original post, I haven't painted in a very long time and it was such a boost to my ego with all the nice and so thoughtful comments! Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!
Rosie raised a grand total of $125!!! WOW! And for such a great and worthy cause! I wish I could find out how much money was raised over all, but haven't found that information out yet! I'll keep you posted when I find out. I had never been to Sycamore's Ladies Night Out before, and let me tell you, it was a sea of pink up and down both sides of the street for a straight 4 hours!
Next year I hope to get more involved...and maybe I will have my own booth!

Hello Everyone! I have some EXCITING NEWS to share with you all! About 2 weeks ago, I was selected to design and paint a HUGE piggy bank for the Annual Ladies Night Out in downtown Sycamore! I was thrilled to be selected for this! This is an annual breast cancer awareness night for women in our area. There are tons of stuff to do, eat, see, and there's a silent auction, witch is where my Rosie will be! For more information, visit Discover Sycamore's web page here!
The inspiration for Rosie was the 1950's WWI poster, Rosie the Riveter. I just love the pout-y lips of the 50's painted bright red!
This was such a fun project! And it also showcases my other talents which I hadn't showcased in quiet a while! It will be fun to see how much money Rosie raises as she is part of the silent auction. All proceeds go towards the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Research fund. I am so Proud of my girl Rosie! I hope you enjoy her as much as I do!
Well, I hope you have enjoyed meeting Rosie! She was such a fun project! I hope to see some of you at the auction! If you are in town, stop by NB&T and say hello!
Winks & Wishes!Christie
