Diabetes Art Day!

I want to spread the word about Diabetes Art Day (September 1), a very fun idea by a super special person.
Lee Ann Thill is an art therapist and a person living with diabetes.  Lee Ann is a wonderful person, and I’m blessed to know her.  I hope that you’ll find some way to participate – even if it is just stick figures on a post-it note.

From her post:

I’m asking you to break out of your linguistic comfort zone, bust out some art materials, and make a piece of artwork – painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, an installation piece, a mixed media something or other, or whatever you can imagine. I’m sure most of you don’t consider yourselves artists, but I think that you are, and just haven’t discovered it yet. Then, once your masterpiece is complete, post it on September 1st. If you want to get your family involved, maybe each of you can create something, or you can even do a group art project. The possibilities are endless if you use your imagination!

Thanks everyone!
– Kathy, I’m so sorry to hear about your job loss. That’s always tough, but especially so when it is because of diabetes.
The diabetes art day is everywhere, all over the internet. Take a look at Lee Ann’s blog for more details. http://www.thebuttercompartment.com/


Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
