I am pleased to announce that I was accepted into Urban Bush Women's Summer Leadership Institute!!!! Exciting.
Chinyere and I are doing multiple fundraisers to assist us in travel expenses and childcare. Our goal is $1000.00. I know that seems like a lot, but I think we can do it. Here is how you can help:
1. enter our button design contest. the winner will recieve an awesome button collection.
2. enter our collage contest. the winner will get an awesome collage collection. (great for folks who like to decorate their home with original artwork.
3. come to gya for our farewell bash on july 15th (next friday from 7:30-10pm) $10 at the door.
4. donate using the paypal button on our blog: yeyoarts.blogspot.com

1. the studio is almost back to artmaking conditions.
2. i now have my jewelry and buttons sold at Peridot!
