My good friend and local artist, Donna Gauntlet, graciously agreed to help me out by being the Model Extraordinaire for the day. She took time out of her busy schedule to help me. Her illustrated book will be published later this month. Visit her website and enjoy her love of joy and whimsy!
Second Chance Last Opportunity

Hearts Desire is pleased to participate in this celebration on Oct. 22 at Michael's on East of a wonderful nonprofit organization that has been Sharing the Light in the Sarasota community for 20 years. A portion of sales from the Hearts Desire Pop-Up Boutique will be donated to Second Chance Last Opportunity. SCLO is a community-based 501(c)(3) grassroots organization that has been offering life management skills classes to at-risk teens and their low income and/or homeless families since 1995. Along with the strategies and skills for success gained from classes, SCLO offers counseling, health education, youth programs, food distributions, shelter referrals, all with a dose of tough love, if appropriate. Most importantly, SCLO gives back the responsibility for turning their lives around to the individuals served.

There may still be tickets available to the Share the Light luncheon.
for more information or to make an online donation.
