A Helping Hand is all about doing what I can to help friends and fellow artisans who are struggling in this economic uncertainty. I'm hoping that featuring these people and causes here on my blog will get the word out to others who may be able to help in some way.
I'd like to introduce you to a dear friend and fellow artisan, Annette (aka Huck) from Huckleberry Arts. Huck's story is alot like many of ours, in that she is an artist who chose to use her creative gifts to contribute to her family income.
She, along with her wonderful husband Rod, are the proud parents of 6 amazing children and the driving force behind Blockhead Radio. They've been there for so many artists and musicians, and right now they could use a boost. Here is her story:
Two years ago Rod lost his job due to cutbacks in the Construction Industry in their region of the US. At that point, they also lost the only car that they had and have been doing without one since then. Huck and Rod recently learned of some promising job leads, but the commute would be impossible without a car. They are trying to raise some money through Huck's online shop(s) so they can purchase some form of transportation. That's where you can help! Are you a Halloween lover? Love primitives? Need a website or blog makeover? Annette creates whimsical one-of-a-kind Art Dolls, Primitives and paintings, as well as fabulous computer graphics for blogs and websites. Check out some examples below (she made my ceejaybags banner!).
