Gimme An N!

My Kenny is working on what will be the 3D letters in the Nasty Women Memphis Art Exhibition.

Yes, that letter N is made from an old door, and it’s setting in my hallway with the unfinished floor!  If it gets any more grass roots than this, I don’t know how!  đź™‚

These letters will be bridged together with dowels, front to back, painted pink and covered in black mesh.

I can’t wait!

Memphis Women’s March Brings 7-9K in Peaceful Protest

My husband, Kenny, and I were happy to join the courageous women, men and children marching in the Memphis Women’s March this morning! The expected number of 3,000 peaceful protesters nearly tripled in attendance at the Judge D’army Bailey Courthouse, where the march began. Speakers before the march were US Representative from TN, Steve Cohen, and Adrienne Bailey, widow of civil rights activist, Judge D’Army Bailey, who encouraged the attendants in their march and to take the long, hard, fight forward. It was spirit-lifting to see the turn-out of so many like-minded people, defending women’s, African-American, LGBTQ, immigrant, and individual rights during the march. Thank you to the organizers of this event, it was beautiful to be a part of this momentous movement.

Nasty Women Making History

The Nasty Women Art Exhibition in Queens, NYC, ended Sunday. They have shared that they SOLD OUT the entire show. Over $42,000 in proceeds raised will go to Planned Parenthood. The Knockdown Center’s programing “Stay Nasty” also raised over $8,000 for smaller non-profits benefiting women’s rights, bringing the grand total to over $50,000.
