I have the pleasure of being a part of an amazing community group on Facebook that I found a few months ago. I recently learned that there are many different FB groups to support, connect and empower communities and I was ecstatic when I found one for my area. The really cool thing is that EVERYTHING IS FREE in this particular group! Post a pic of something you want/need to get rid of or post when you're in search/need of something and the awesome admin and members make it happen! I've scored a few treasures on the site and have also donated some things too. Well the team at Ripples to Waves are working really hard at putting together free community events and I had the pleasure of attending one a few weeks ago, which happened to be my 1st TLC vendor event!
It was my honor to show my artwork at their event and in a way, it felt like a omen of good blessings that my 1st event was in my community, surrounded by positive and incredible people! The celebration was an Easter Egg-stravaganza and although I was showing my artwork there, I couldn't help but bring my camera and take some pics of all the fun that was had.
There were many activities with lots of fun for the kids, and adults too; an Easter Bunny, little chicks kids could hold and adore, a well organized Easter egg hunt, cookie decorating station, raffle, gardening activity, dress up station, arts & crafts table, music, food, face painting and even a table overflowing with clothes that were donated by the communty... free for the taking! Here's a few pictures of all the fun
Just weeks after this event, the administrators of the Facebook group worked hard to get the group incorporated as a non-profit! So congratulations "Ripples to Waves Inc"! All your selfless-ness and hard work is appreciated and inspired me to create a little token of appreciation to celebrate becoming a non-profit!

and a big thank you to my community for your support and great feedback on my artwork!!
