Photo original I won a $500 grant from SWAN Day CT to fund my first published book of art...but I need much more than that to do it.

      Jessica, any time I feel sad or listless, I find something you said written somewhere on the internet or in my pile of "special things I saved over the years". You're a professional cheerer-upper and you always make me laugh.

      Aww, that goal has grown up so fast! Visiting this page has become such a habit for me over the last few days that I will miss it when it's all over.... If only 119 people would donate exactly 2 dollars at the rate of roughly 4.5 people per day, then we can draw this fundraiser out longer and give me something to do with my idle internet time.

      I wish I had more to give! Can't wait to see the book.

      Good luck! I will covet your printer and scanner.

      I'm glad it was only your cat that you decided to show us in that video; I was a bit worried things were about to become X-rated. Also, brush your hair next time ~ presentation is important! Finally, I better get my 8x11 print; none of this "I'll donate out of the goodness of my heart and my love for art" BS for me.

      Francis, every dollar is so very appreciated! Besides, you're still making a MOVIE. That's like, a big deal and stuff.

      This is awesome! Wish I could fund the whole project but things are tight right now. Can't wait to buy the book when you're finished.
