Art Now For Autism Auction

You may remember that a while back, I donated a little textile/stretched canvas piece of art to the cause Art Now For Autism. The auction festivities begin today!

I know the economy is frightening and everyone is saving like mad, but if you're one of those folks whose luck has maybe been a little better this year than that of others, please consider investing in a small bit of hand-crafted goodness for a cause that couldn't be more poignant. No voices should be silenced.
