Donations from Sale of Paintings & 38 Candles in Antique Teacups.
November 18 was set for my annual HOME STUDIO SHOW, and I promised to donate 10% of profits the the Children of Promise Orphanage in Guyana. My daughter, Angelica was not going to be left out as she was born in Guyana and she pledged all proceeds from making scented candles in antique teacups.
Initially we sourced 7 teacups and glasses and lovingly filled them with Vanilla Bean scented wax. At the show, Angelica sold out in 1/2 an hour and continued to take up to 38 orders! God bless her efforts! She raised over $600 and also had a very kind donation from a gentleman who wrote a cheque for $500!
Please contact me if you would like an invitation for a private showing of watercolours, acrylics, oils and mixed media with sterling silver & 14 kt gold, before my Spring Studio Show in April: email@example.com
