Amazing...that is the first word that came to me as I read about what happened last night at Creative Escape!!! Teachers from past Creative Escapes were given a $15.oo lamp to alter for an auction that would benefit the Leukemia Society. 100% going to the charity. Tim Holtz and Heidi each decorated one and theirs was auctioned off live last night at their closing dinner. Heidi's went for an amazing $8200 and Tim's went for...sit down...$29,000!!! Yes you read that right twenty-nine thousand dollars!!! Still gives me goose-bumps just thinking about it. I read that this totally overwhelmed Tim with emotion, I can only imagine. This was the woman who won the bid. It looks like Heidi was very touched as well!!! I found this picture online to share!
I loved my experience at CE last year and only hope that I get to attend next year.
