Let's Make Art Matter For Julie - Merry & Bright Mini Watercolor Painting
This month we have the opportunity to give back to someone within our LMA community. Our Merry & Bright recipient, Julie, was nominated by her daughter Stacey, who paints along with us. Over the last 7 years, Julie has battled and beaten ovarian cancer four times, and though her longest remission was just two years, she still managed to start her own nonprofit organization which provides adult swaddle blankets to newly diagnosed women so they can feel warm and comfort during the long hours in the chemo chairs. On each blanket, she hand-ties a ribbon with a note containing her personal information in case they need solidarity, comfort, or words of encouragement. Last October, her cancer came back for the fifth time. As she and her family navigate next steps, let's send Julie some love and encouragement. No one fights alone!
This project is like nothing we've ever done before... Sarah Cray was joined by Julie's daughter to collaborate paint postcards together. Join Sarah & and her special guest, Stacey, and learn how to paint a festive candle. A pre-stamped postcard is included in our Merry & Bright box. If you are not subscribed, but would still like to send some love, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the address.
