Desert Raven Art

Back in October my Mom entered a give-away on a wonderful blog called Desert Raven Art.  The give-away was for a beautiful beaded bracelet, and guess what?

Mom WON!

She was so excited!

Isn't it beautiful!? Mom got a lovely note from Mary as well!

Mom thinks the bracelet is colorful, unique and is a  special piece  that she will always cherish!

Part of what makes it even more special is that Mary Hone (the artist behind Desert Raven Art)  is a member of Art For Critters.

What does that mean?

I’ll let Mary tell you from her own website because she can explain it best!

“Being a member of Art for Critters, means I can help an animal organization through selling my art. There are several organizations that Art for Critters helps, and one of them is Almost Heaven Golden retriever rescue.    

I am going to donate 15% of the total sales for November and December,  from theTrade bead jewelry, Bison leather bags and the Stone Spirits to Almost Heaven.

So please help me help them. Almost Heaven is a sanctuary for Goldens that due to age or health issues are considered unadoptable. Almost Heaven helps them to find a forever home, or if that isn’t possible they stay at the sanctuary. To learn more about Almost Heaven, please click the link above.”

Mom and I think that is truly special and generous of Mary to do that!

Mary also has another great blog that we follow called Roxy The Traveling Dog

Mom says THANK YOU Mary for her beautiful bracelet and for all that you do for the “Goldens”

Give  Roxy a special “hello” from Mom and Dakota!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota
