Rocking Relief !

As of Saturday afternoon, my Etsy shop is officially sold out of the 37 Days Rock My World rocks that benefited the John F. Ptak Relief Fund.

My awesome computer geek and right hand man in rocking the world, David, calculated all kinds of juicy statistics for me.

128 orders were placed

for 232 bags of rocks,

all to give financial support to John and Patti as John undergoes treatment for kidney cancer.

(He had his surgery last Wed. and is healing,resting and in amazingly brilliant spirits at home. Can you say clean margins ?!!!)

That means that these Rock Fairy hands painted over 3000 rocks with messages of love that are now all over the world !

And, after shipping costs and materials, it allowed us to donate $1500.00 to the John. F. Ptak Relief Fund !

David and I are unbelievably proud of all the hard work we put in to be able to give to this awesome family in this way. It has been an act of joy and an honor. Our thanks and gratitude to all the people who placed orders with us and made this more special than I could ever have dreamed. Thank you too, to the great gang of Rock Fairy friends who helped me along the way.

You all rock !

I have put the Etsy shop into Vacation mode as I rest my wings for awhile.

What better way to rest than to head to a week-long visit to the Lake House on Lake Champlain, and enjoy a workshop with the amazingly talented, magic maker,  e.b. ,

(Ps - The John F. Ptak Relief fund is still collecting donations until the 14th of September. Wouldn't it be amazing to reach that $100,000 goal ???)

What you and David have done proves that even one or two people can make a huge difference in this world. But then we've always known that about the two of you. A well deserved rest creating art and enriching your soul is a perfect way to end this chapter of such magnitude. Every right to be proud of this fundraising effort...love you guys!! xoxo
