Art Auction for Okey's Promise: Art for a Cause

Our dear anipal, Brewski Butt, let Bztat, aka Vicki, come to Blogpaws 2011 to make a presentation about the next phase for Okey's Promise. In her kickstarter page, Vicki explains: "My hope is that this artwork will start a dialog about the combined issues of animal abuse, child abuse and domestic violence." A key issue is that this project will only be funded if at least $6,000 is pledged by Monday Sep 26, 4:02pm EDT. as of 9-6-11, $1285 have been pledged.

As you may recall, the link between domestic and animal abuse is very dear to Mom's heart. She had me contact our group of artistic anipals and we are putting together an auction of artwork. Our list so far is: jewelry by Duck'sTypist, drawings by CheshireK, a print from Bztat, a Pasikas scarf, and one of Mom's beaded wallhangings. Details are still being worked out as to when, where, how.

I hope to have pictures for you all. I promise that Parker will help mom for sure. I will say that I have left fur on it already - it is a Christmas Laurel Burch wallhanging that she plans to hand bead. Mom, you had really better glam this up, because i am falling asleep just looking at it!

Love to all,


  1. What a wonderful idea! Love that Laurel Burch wallhanging. We hope that BZTAT reaches her goal.

  2. Another fantastic idea. Love the Art Auctions so much and it's always for such a worthy cause. Also love the quilt piece your mom is working on. It will be another beauty for sure. he he - darn typist had to delete her first comment because she forgot to tell you what a great quilt piece that will be.

  3. I'm sure it will be GORGEOUS! And thanks for joining my Anipal Times staff/readers blog hop!


  4. This is terrific! And the quilt is beautiful already, it'll be spectacular with beads!

  5. What a PAWEsome gift! For a Pawesome cause too!
