Pink for Kelly
Every month the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy puts on a challenge for our members. Only members can enter a creation, but voting is open to the public and all of the voters are entered to win a prize. I knew there was a lot of work that went in behind the scenes to put on the challenge, but I never really realized how much.
A couple of months ago, our challenge coordinator Kelly, asked for some help. She had been recently diagnosed with breast cancer and needed someone to take over these duties while she started treatment.
We decided to divide the tasks so it would be easier for everyone to fit them in with work and family obligations. We should have done that a long time ago, but no one really realized how time-intensive the challenge tasks were.
When we learned of Kelly's illness we decided to change the theme for September to "Pink." As you can see this theme is particularly dear to us so if you have a few minutes, please stop by the challenge site and vote by Sept. 7.
