"Sweet" Night

A couple of months ago, after setting up a Zentangle display at my local bank, I got a call from the director of the "Friends of the Library" asking if I would donate a piece of art for their "Sweet Night"  fundraiser.  The funds would go to help their summer reading program for kids.  Since I love the work that the Friends of the Library group does, I immediately said yes.  Then I hung up the phone and thought, oh my gosh...I have never sold a piece of art before...what am I thinking...yikes!  So, I created a piece of Zentangle Inspired Art, which they picked up mid-Jan.  The fundraiser event was last Friday night, Feb 10th and was called "Sweet Night" (with a valentine love theme).  It was a dance with a two-piece band, wine, and desserts.  They had 4 large tables of donated items from individuals and lots of local businesses.  Miss Loveland Valentine made an appearance and a professional dance team showed everyone some dance steps.  This was the 10th year of this annual event, which we had never been to before.  Doug and I had a wonderful time.....and wow,wow, wow, someone  bought my piece of art, making my night, really "sweet"!   Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
