Connecting at the Catwalk

Ellen and I donated one of our framed
Butterfly Kiss prints for the Silent Auction
Sunday's Crazy Catwalk for Kidds was an afternoon of high energy inspite of the March winds and rains outside.

People came for fashion, food, and art-  all for Supporting Kidds.  

It also was a great opportunity to see and meet new people.  My passion is creating community through art and it is also the mission of J. Christian and Marcy, owners of J. Christian Studio.  
Committed to giving back to the community, they create 4 events a year where they and their wondeful staff, donate their talents, their services and their vision to local charities.  Talk about Paying it Forward!

My favorite part of the day is having people stop by my table and talk about their shoes and the stories behind them.

I was also there signing copies of our book Butterfly Kisses and Wishes on Wings: When someone you love has cancer... a hopeful, helpful book for kids.  I continue to be inspired by the courage of individuals and families who demonstrate grace and resilience in the wake of this disease.

Also on hand for the event were my new groovy new business cards from Aztec Printing and Design. People could choose from one of four images with my Walks thru Life: Shoe Portrait Series on them.  Commissions are welcome.

What's your favorite pair of shoes say about you?
