I’d love to be an artist.  To be able to take a brush to canvas and create something is a gift, just not a gift I have.  I have to suffice with hosting an art show and I’m thrilled to be doing just that.

My Kids’ Cookies Shop is holding our first art show featuring the work of Shari Walker Hutchinson. And nothing pairs so well with art as red wine which we’ll be pouring compliments of Victor Alexander Winery.  Of course, you can’t have a glass of red wine unless you also indulge in a bite of a brownie or shortbread.  So, we’ll have that too.

We encourage guests to bring a few canned food items to help Bainbridge Island’s local social services agency Helpline House.

When: Thursday, July 16th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pmWhere: My Kids’ Cookies Shop
9723 Coppertop Loop, #202

Last week I had a gold party at my cookie shop.  About 2 dozen people showed up with their baggies of tangled gold chains, lonely earrings that didn’t have a partner, and out of style pieces.  A local jeweler, Blue Heron Jewelry, set up their tools of the trade and weighed and valued everyone’s gold and gems.  Everyone went home a bit richer and laughter permeated the air as we sipped delicious wine from Victor Alexander Winery and nibbled on cookies.  The best part of the evening, though, was that our local charitiable organization Helpline House walked away with $255 in donations of cash and gold sale proceeds.  That will buy a lot of food for their pantry and help those on Bainbridge Island that are having a hard time in this economy.  Thanks to everyone that participated and were so generous.  Paying it forward is a good thing.
