Art Auction Update

These past few weeks have been crazy busy with the animals, no surprise there:)
But also I have had some challenges in my personal life and a family emergency while I was in Chicago.
Spent some time in the hospital and then was off to Wisconsin to finish the final closing and moving of my old home.

I appreciate everyone being so understanding with my delays in the art auction schedules due to my time constraints and just wanted to let you know where we're at.
The first phase of the art auction raised: $1,198.93 for 28 items.
We have many more beautiful pieces of art to come.
I'm a bit hesitant to post the rest of the auction till after the holiday, since we are all so very busy.
What I have decided to do is open a Flicker account and post all the art to it, so that you all can see the art.
I just started but here is the link:


I will then post all my e-bay auctions to start on January 4-11.
I am currently working on a Thank you page for my website, so that everyone will be posted, who has supported me and donated art.
I want you all to know how much I appreciate you, even though I'm just so swamped and not the best at communications.
I promise to be better, but for now, the animals come first and everything else follows after..
Another thing I'm planning is to put up a happy faces page of all the animals that have passed thru our doors.

I'm off and running today, I have a Holiday party I'm attending today and giving a presentation of my Christmas ornaments. For those attending who want to order for next year.. I'm pretty excited it's for some pretty famous people:)
More later!!
Blessings and Light to you..
You take care... enjoy your holidays! I look forward to the art auction, part deux!!

I was just HEARTSICK that I missed your phone call the other day.

I called back and left a message. I know you are busy busy and it is difficult to get everything done in a day.

I just wanted to wish you and yours the Happiest of Holidays... and to remind you that you are truly an Angel here on earth!!!

I have several other pieces of art I would like to donate and was wondering if I could still send them into you?

~personally....I think you should have an ongoing art auction going all the time on ebay, let us send more art to ya!! :)

~thinking of you! xo!!
Bernie, I came to your blog via Farmgirl, and you are AWESOME! I completely understand your urgency to save every one of them, and the frustration at not being able to do more. And you have been in the hospital? And that's all you say! I pray you are okay. God bless you.
