I was trying to think of a way to raise money for the adenoid cystic carcinoma research foundation (accrf) and i decided to collect drawing cards to be framed and auctioned. my goal is to create a large piece and auction it on ebay in the fall.  it's off to a slow start, but i started a blog to try and explain it.

 I also have been using this as my theme when i swap in the ongoing atc swap. I spoke at a meeting at my church, and created a small piece for a silent auction, and it went for $100! there was also a free will donation that will go to the research foundation. i did several of the cards, but there are also ones from family, and the cancer support group, in addition to craftster swaps.



i found the tray on clearance at michaels. they used to have several diffrent ones but it doesn't seem to be popular in my area, so i'm going to look for another one online.

I love those trays; I have one hanging in my kitchen that also contains swapped atcs and little knickknacks. I love that you auction yours off for charity. It's beautiful!

I absolutely love this project. I just read your blog, and I think this is an amazing thing you are doing. I was in tears reading your story. I hope and pray you will get healthy and stay cancer free in the very near future.  Kiss
