My long-time, number one, ultimate HERO of the art world — artist Mary Engelbreit — just announced her newest print yesterday. Besides the fact that her new print is totally cute, the coolest thing about it is this: if you purchase the print from her, she’s using the proceeds to raise money for Doctors Without Borders to help with in their Haiti Relief Effort.
These 11″ x 14″ prints are being sold for just $35.00 AND the first 100 sold will be signed and numbered by Mary! That is a totally sweet deal, plus you’ll be contributing in a small way to helping those in Haiti who have lost everything.
I just ordered one for my studio. I love the saying “May Wonders Never Cease!” as much as the beautiful little girl that Mary has illustrated.
Now that the dirt has started to settle and media coverage is slowing down, it’s easy to forget about all the people who lost their families, and all their earthly possessions in just minutes. I’m going to hang up Mary’s drawing in my studio so that I remember to continue to pray for the people of Haiti every day.
Be sure to count YOUR blessings today, and please keep Praying for Haiti!
(From the New International Version of the Bible)
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
I know! 🙂 Won’t it look cute in my studio??
