2013 CHAIRS FOR CHARITY


 
October has arrived and the month is going to be busy. It is time to move my projects indoors
and batten down the hatches so to speech. We already had 2 nights of heavy wind and rain this past weekend. Now is when I start to feel a bit claustrophobic having to stay indoors so much more.
One event this month that will get me out of the house is Chairs for Charity at The Passionate Home.

This event raises money for the Langley Christmas Bureau. The Union Jack Chair above was my
donation last year and it raised $250 at the live auction. 20 chairs are being revamped and donated
by local artists. New this year professional photographer Steve Hayek is photographing each chair
that is dropped off before Oct 10th. All you participating artists take advantage and get your chair in
 early just to get a fabulous photo of your work to show off.
 
This is my "BEFORE" picture for this year.
 
 

I'll share my finished chair with you when Steve gets it photographed.
No pressure Steve!! http://stevehayek.com/
