Blogging for a Cure: The Final Week

Note: My husband and I took the rest of the photographs posted here at the Reception for Robert's Snow Artists, which was held on November 4th at the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, Massachusetts. The 2007 snowflakes will remain on exhibit through December 2nd.

Time certainly has flown. Think about this: The final week of Blogging for a Cure will begin tomorrow! Where did the time go?

Once again, I would like to thank Jules and Eisha, the fine ladies of 7-Imp for spearheading this effort to promote Robert’s Snow: for Cancer’s Cure, a series of online auctions that will raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and cancer research. Please visit the Robert’s Snow website to learn more about this unique fundraiser, which was co-founded by Grace Lin and her late husband Robert Mercer.

Jules coordinated the efforts of dozens of bloggers who have been posting features about the picture book illustrators who created snowflakes for Robert’s Snow 2007. She also organized the master schedule for our postings. In addition, I would like to thank Tricia Stohr-Hunt of The Miss Rumphius Effect and Jen Robinson of Jen Robinson’s Book Page for providing participating bloggers with weekly schedules to post at our blogs.

NOTE: I have linked to the blogs that will be posting features about the Robert’s Snow artists this week—not to the specific posts. Jules and Eisha of 7-Imp have created a special page that includes a list with links to all the Blogging for a Cure posts. Their list is updated every day.

Elaine, I just wanted to say what a beautiful, gracious job you're doing promoting Robert's Snow. Six features! I'm doing three, and I'm following the same format for all three, and even that feels like a lot. You've been doing an amazing job with Robert's Snow and also with highlighting the great organizers and helpers who have made it possible to do. Woot!

I'm going to miss all these interview when they end! I so enjoyed getting to "meet" me featured illustrators too. (One one on the phone, and one via email contact that continues.) Looking forward to the final week!

The artist interviews for Blogging for a Cure have been a labor of love for me. Robert's Snow: for Cancer's Cure is dear to me heart. It's been interesting getting to know some of these talented artists.


I've been so busy with my own Blogging for a Cure artist interviews that I haven't yet had an opportunity to read all the other artist features that have been posted to date. I'm so glad Jules and Eisha created that "special" page at their blog so I can read them all after I've finished posting my last artist feature on the 18th.

I know Elaine isn't that wonderful of them! I have missed many weekend features too. It does take so much time. I can't believe how many features you've done! Stop by my blog before Monday if you want to be entered in the drawing for a signed book by either of the two author/illustrators I featured!
