First, I’d like to direct your attention to a lovely fundraiser happening right now that has been established to help illustrator and writer Terri Windling (of Bordertown fame), who is experiencing financial difficulties due to health as well as legal issues. Numerous artists and writers have gathered together to contribute original art, services, prints, jewelry and books for auctioning off, as all proceeds go to helping out Ms. Windling. From the site: “Terri Windling and her family have been coping with health and legal issues that have drained her financial resources at a critical time. Due to the serious nature of these issues, and privacy concerns for individual family members, we can’t be more specific than that, but Terri is in need of our support. As a friend, a colleague and an inspiration, Terri has touched many, many lives over the years. She has been supremely generous in donating her own work and art to support friends and colleagues in crisis. Now, Terri is in need of some serious help from her community. Who better than her colleagues and fans to rise up to make some magick for her? ” With this in mind, I have donated one of my creations, “Nigel”, a one of a kind, hand sculpted piece (click on individual pictures to enlarge and open a slideshow).
The auction ends December 15th, 5pm Pacific Time. Here’s your chance to own a GFS original AND support a great cause.

I’m also excited and pleased that my wands have been picked up by a wonderful online store, and will be very much at home with the other creatures and creations represented. Keep a watch here for when they go “live”!
