Charity Events

Saturday was a busy day. My mannequin, Rene, needed to be dropped off at the Fashion Show/Lunch for St. Madeleine Sophie's Center at the Sheraton Harbor Drive. They had 800 people for lunch and hopefully raised a lot of money for a very worthy cause.
You can see from these photos Rene was in good company.

This beautifully tailored jacket was made from window screen.

Stopped by the SDPCG Clay Day between chauffeuring Rene, and made a few Bottles of Hope. If you refer back to the 10-20-10 post you can read a bit more about how Bottles of Hope came into being. This photo shows some of the creative bottles that were baked and ready to go to Moores Cancer Center.


  1. I still give Rene a 10! Concerning the Bottles of Hope - are those made over glass bottles? Can you put them in the toaster oven with the glass underneath? I am thinking about an art project with the femo you brought me...

  2. The clay is baked on clean glass medicine bottles put on a baking tray or tile. The stoppers are baked seperately. Some people have had success using plastic bottles filled with water but the plastic sometimes melts. yikes!
