Did you know that we currently have things for sale from our Art Co-op in Haiti on our website?
Very very soon we will have more things available and we will be integrating this blog into our website so that there will only be one place for everyone to stop in and see what is going on AND what is for sale to help kids and families in Haiti.
We were thrilled to have a huge order of bracelets that will be sold to help women in Haiti in honor of an exciting theater production in Minnesota coming up soon. We will have more info coming up about that and some new artists soon too!

This sweet girl is Claudette. She was living at the Rescue Center getting dressing changes while we were in Haiti last week.
She was lighting an oil lamp when her clothes started on fire. Her mother is bedridden and told her to quickly run next door, but as we all know fire and running don't go well together. By the time she reached her neighbors and they helped to put out the fire, she had burned the entire front of her little body. These burns are not uncommon in Haiti. I just read about this new Battery Kit project starting that will give Haitians an alternative to using oil lamps. Kind of an interesting idea.

Funky Dori and daughter, Funky Erin work with fabrics and glass to create one of a kind accessories you just have to have!
Like so many other Lampworkers, Dori fell in love with the flow of the glass and the challenge of either making it do what she wants, or better put, giving in to what the glass wants to do.
Artist Dori Settles not only donated some amazing jewelry to Artists For Hope, but she also came to our Open House and made herself available to speak with shoppers about her work and see firsthand what Artists For Hope is all about. We loved spending time with her and everyone loved her jewlery! We will be listing some of her donations on our website very soon. Be sure To check out her website and her ETSY site to see more of her work.
