The Providence O' Christmas Tree auction raises funds benefiting ministries who, together, serve over 17,200 people a day in need of healthcare, housing and hospice. 

They choose 14 designers in the Seattle area, and I have been asked to design a tree! I have created a Christmas Tree called Once Upon A Tree. Once Upon A Tree is going to take the guests into a fictional world of words and pages coming to life during the whimsical Christmas holiday. The tree will be filled with folded pages of garland to unique book art design from the most brilliant authors. From characters jumping out of pages building their story, to Rembrandt telling his last tale on canvas; the viewer will surely be transformed into a world of story filled imagination!

I have always loved art, and I have always loved to read. It made sense to me that these two mediums should come together, showing a glimpse of the authors mind in motion.

The tree will be bid on by individuals or companies Dec 5th, 2013. Some trees sell for 50k! All of the beautiful pieces on the tree, along with 147 signed books or 147 digital books that have been donated already by a publishing company here in Seattle, will be given to the person who wins the tree. Would YOU be interested in donating to this tree design??

With your help, I will be buying intricate art pieces that range from $200.00-$300.00 each,  to help make this tree come to life.

Thank you for your help and your constant support!

Pretty much, the moral of the story is:

I want to have the highest bidding tree!
