In case you haven't noticed, I haven't been around recently, Thats because I have been on holiday. Not just any holiday but one to celebrate my 50th Birthday. There will be a separate blog about it with all my pictures when I have sorted through them all. So apologies for not updating you enough, but as I start I thought I would tell you all about my new little scheme!!
My Lovely sister in law recently had a birthday, she asked for a donation to go to her favourite charity instead of a present and so we did, but as I couldn't afford to be as generous as I would have liked, then I came up with a cunning plan.......
Her charity of choice is the the 5 sisters Zoo. This is a bear charity and you can read all about it here http://www.fivesisterszoo.co.uk/, so I painted a bear and will try and raise money for her charity using the picture. I have yet to think what to do with the original painting, so any idea on how I can raise the most money from it would be gratefully appreciated,
but to make a start I have produced a bag with a transfer on of the image on that I am selling on Etsy, 20% of the cost will go to the 5 sisters charity , so if my maths is correct ( I'm hopeless with numbers) then as each bag costs £7 each, then £1.40 will go to the 5 sisters charity. I have sold 3 already so thats a good start.
I am trying to think of other ways to sell this image, but will have to come back to you when I have worked them out.
If I could ask for your help to spread the word then I would be very grateful, and there is a link below if you wish to buy one.
