My last D.A.D. of 2010 is inspired by a suggestion from my friend and former teammate, Kate — we used to play on the same women’s competitive ultimate frisbee team. She suggested Bench warmer, and my addiction to knitting snuck its way in:
As an aside, Kate never played the role of bench warmer (that would’ve been me :) — in fact, her frisbee-playing and on-field butt-kicking is still going strong (while I retired years ago).
And speaking of kicking butt… we just submitted our first donation to the Canadian Cancer Society yesterday. Wanna see???
We are sending them our donations on a quarterly basis. This is from our sales, starting on our June 7 launch up until September 30 — totalling $1808.81.
When we started this thing, we said “If we sell one print a week, then that will be over $500 to the CCS in our first year. And then hopefully things will grow from there.”
Obviously, and with your help, we’ve kinda blown our original goal out of the water… THANK YOU so much for all your support, feedback and rah-rah-rahs. We are overwhelmed, humbled, and we know our Dad is somewhere beaming with pride.
Donations to CCS, Emily
When I saw Em’s Online romance last week, I had to laugh since I had my D.A.D. for today, Bird on a wire, already sketched out:
We never talk about what we’ll be drawing so it’s always fun when we end up on the same wavelength.
Another etsy treasury inclusion to report! Em’s Whiter shade of pale caught the eye of SeaDreamStudio in Winter Blues:
Thanks for adding us to your treasury!
This is going to be the last week of D.A.D.s we do before we take a winter break for the holidays. How did it become mid-December already??
I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that winter has arrived, having had to pull out the longjohns and scrape off the car a couple of times… Rather than pout about it, I thought I’d try and come up with a pleasant (albeit chilly) scene, and what better way to do it than with the help of a barn owl? Here is Whiter shade of pale:
Bundle up, (unless you live somewhere warm, in which case I’m sending you a big envious raspberry ;P ) and have a terrific week!
