World Breastfeeding Week 2008

Boob cookie, anyone?

You didn’t think I’d go through the whole week without talking about this (again) did you? Of course not.  I volunteered at a health fair to celebrate, promote and support breastfeeding and it was actually pretty fun.  If you could of seen all the beautiful breastfed babies being carried around in carriers by mamas and papas. It was truly beautiful.

Love has nothing to do with what you are expected to get,
only with what you are expected to give~
which is everything!
You give because you love and cannot help giving.

Katherine Hepburn

I was asked to hang some of my art for the fair which was nice.  I raffled off this piece above. I was also asked to hang my art at a Midwifery convention in the fall. Feels nice to get some of my art work out into the community.

If you would like to see my other pieces a little better, you can check out my Mother/Baby set in flickr.

    How exciting that you’re having all these showings of your art. Wish I could see them in person, but they look fantastic in a grouping like that. I especially love the one with the woman in silhouette.
