Layne's Legacy - Beading for A Cure...
Mark your calendars! It is almost time for the annual "Beading for A Cure" auctions. They will begin on March 7 and run through the end of April. That means each week there will be all new, beautiful creations for you to bid on, I highly recommend you take some time now to figure out which are your favorites.
I just spent some time gazing at the brand new gallery of pieces for this year and they are absolutely spectacular! If you would rather see them as a slide show you can do that here.
Please consider printing out a flyer and sharing with friends, business', etc. You can find the flyer when you CLICK HERE
The beauty of it - so many stunning entries every year up for auction at very reasonable prices, all the while raising money for a wonderful charity.
This is my third year to participate and my little bag ended up being one of my favorite pieces ever. It was really hard to let this one go.
You will want to bookmark the auction site, so do yourself a favor and go there now in order to have plenty of time be ready to bid on your favorite piece(s) when the auctions start.

Check back often and bid HIGH!
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
