In a time of horrific devastation, one lady had a vision. Through word of mouth and social media, 33 artist came together under one roof. Each donating their work. The public began bidding for paintings, pottery, woodwork, books, note cards, gift baskets, certificates and more. The time frame was 25 days. The goal? To raise as much money as possible via internet and in store visits. The cause? The people of Fort McMurray. On the last day, Artisans came out in support. Bidding continued right down to the wire. $3145.00 was raised. Smiles filled the room. Thank you everyone.

The ice has given way to the sound of running water. The creek chortles over rocks, mud-covered twigs and raw roots. Natural springs create mini gorges in the ground. Opening gashes in the land on their way to join with the creek.
The country thaws and the saturation spreads. A devastated landscape shows new signs of sloughing along the already scarred hills.
Mother Nature tests all she come in contact with. There is no arguing. There is not recourse. A beautiful woman who gives in to no one. What she wants she never asks for. She just takes.
