I know it has been absolutely forever since I posted here on The Feeding Edge. There have been so many reasons for that the biggest being that my husband and I sold our home in Colorado last spring and moved to my home state of Maine! As you can imagine or as you may have experienced – this is a huge undertaking. But, we survived and are thrilled to have bought a home a mile and a half down the road from my younger brother and his family. I now get to be Aunt full time which if you’ve followed my blog for any period of time will know that this is something that is extremely important for me to have in my life. And now here we are starting October!!! How did that happen so quickly?
Three years ago today I started on a grand adventure to paint 365 daily apples to hopefully bring some awareness to a little known disease I have called Ankylosing Spondylitis. What a year that was!!! And since that time I have been doing all sorts of things like start and successfully run, Walk Your A.S. Off and broadening the power of the amazing apple to Apples For A Cure. Last year I painted 31 Apples For A Cure and sent them as gifts to people you nominated to receive one.
This year I am going to do things a little bit differently. I will be selling (I know. But, I need to sell these babies to continue doing this site and the walk and all sorts of other things I’ve got dreamed up) so there will be some original Apples For A Cure – like the one above – for sale for a small price of $25 and prints available for $12! AND here’s the BIG news – for the month of October I will be doing a NEW daily Apple For AS (for sale at various prices)!!! Those 31 apples will be posted here (please make sure you are signed up for my emails over there on the right side of this blog – via the “Receive Posts Via Email” thingy so that you can see it each morning). The original apple will be available ONLY here and will be sold on a first come first serve basis. There will be prints available of these 31 apples via Etsy and these prints will also be a fundraiser for the organization specified on each individual apple with a full HALF of the proceeds of the print going to charity with an accounting in November of what I sold and how much we raised for the which charity!
I hope you love the new designs and will stock up on some or all of them – they will also be available as post & notecards!
I will be launching my new site JenniferVisscher.com the beginning of November so please head on over there to make sure you are signed up for my mailing list for that site too!
Keep your eyes pealed this afternoon/evening for my first NEW apple for AS!
I am just so excited to be back with you all!
