Foto/Fiber 2012

I am so pleased to once again be taking part in a fundraiser for Virginia Spiegel for the American Cancer Society. Virginia does more than any one person I know to help raise money to help defeat the scourge that is cancer. I am honored to have been asked to participate and I think her fundraiser this year is brilliant. All of the fun starts this Wednesday, February 15th. All of the details are below and on her website. Scroll down to the bottom to see the bonuses that I am donating,
