Ali Edwards Capture life. Create art.

March 29, 2007



In the spirit of giving I want to do a couple drawings over the next few days as we approach the end of the Six Degrees contest on Saturday night. Entry into the drawing will end at 6:45pm Pacific with the actual drawing being done at 7pm Pacific today, tomorrow, and Saturday. Each morning I will post a new prize – leave a comment to be entered into the drawing.

Today I am going to give away a class kit to complete the album above: evolution. It's an album that takes a look at your life over three different time periods. This was the class I taught last weekend at ARTistry and it will appear (with instructions) in my upcoming book later this year. The kit includes everything to make the album (supplies + paint, instructions, homework, etc).

Leave a comment in the section below to be entered into the drawing.

And let's keep that donation number going up and up. Remember, $10 can really go a long way.

    I am so excited to see how this amazing lifestyle has been able to capture, motivate, and move a group of people to create change – for your son simon and all of the other amazing people who are touched by autism and ASD.
    You have a wonderful gift Ali, thank you for sharing it with us.

    I am i awe of the badge for 6 Degrees!!! You have really set out to make a difference for your son and everyone with autism. It is really disheartening to know that they cannot figure out what causes this. maybe with the money you raise, they can come a little closer to figuring out how this arises!!
    Simon is a very lucky little boy to have a mommy like you!!
    Good Luck!! By the way, do you get to personally meet Kevin Bacon?? That would be really nice. He is so yummy!

    Ali, I have always loved your work in CK, and when I discovered your blog about a month ago, I was thrilled. What has been even more thrilling is watching your badge and the donations rise and rise and rise. You have inspired me to find something worthy to put my time and effort into. Thanks for being such an inspiring role model.
