WINNER OF VIDA STATEMENT CLUTCH

My niece Avery has drawn the name of the winner of my “Peppermint Rose” Statement Clutch!

VIDA STMNT CLUTCH WINNER.jpg

Congratulations to Ms. J. Hale Turner!!! Your clutch has already been ordered and is in production. As soon as I receive it, I will forward it to you.

This hand and wristlet clutch is the chic, new way to carry a clutch. It’s the clutch that literally has staying power, and it’s one of spring’s most must-have handbags with an innovative strap and handle! A new way to work a clutch, you no longer have to carry it, but you can wear it, too!!!

I’m sure that once Ms. Turner receives it, she’ll be happy to share some pictures of her posing with it to give us some ideas of how to wear and/or carry it. 🙂 To order yours or any other designs from my collection, just click here.

Thank you all again so much for being so supportive of me! As always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours ❤ !

Maxine 🙂

HEALING PHOTO ART

Scientific studies indicate that art heals by changing a person’s physiology and attitude. Physiology changes from one of stress to one of deep relaxation. Perceptions of the world are immediately changed from darkness and despair to hope and jubilation.

The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals is an organization founded by Elaine Poggi. I recently had the wonderful pleasure of meeting her via the Internet during my research of children’s hospitals to whom I was seeking to donate some of my nature art. I e-mailed her, and right away, she responded back. Well, to give you the short version, I am now one of the Foundation’s contributing photographers!!! 🙂 Below is a picture of my “Regal Camellia” which has been added to their website. This image is also available on various products in my VIDA, Fine Art America, Pixels, and Zazzle online stores.

CAMELLIAS (WET) 14 (NF).jpg

Please visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about its founder Ms. Poggi and her extremely worthy cause. You can also show support for her organization through Amazon when you make purchases. If you buy items on amazon.com, please consider using smile.amazon.com/ch/76-0720368 which is the same as Amazon, except that it donates 0.5% of the price of your purchases to The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals! Just click on the link and choose the Foundation. Then shop always from smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com. The Foundation is receiving more than $200.00 a year from Amazon, and if more people do this, they will be able to fund a whole photo project in a hospital very soon. Please help spread the word about this among your friends and family.

As always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours ❤ !
