Boo, the Special Auction

Just a quick reminder that the Boo auction is live and off to a fantastic start... she is up to $200 already!  Please spread the word so we can raise some money for the wonderful non-profit childrens hospital, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. 

In case you missed the earler post, Ashley of Li'l Blue Boo has been dealing with a very aggressive form of cancer. You can read more about her ordeal on her blog  I am so happy to say that as of now, it looks like the chemo is working so hopefully Ashley will be on her way to a complete recovery very soon. 

This is how Boo started:  Stephanie Corfee designed a "Team Ashley" logo at the request of a dear friend so people could show their support for Ashley during this tough time. When I saw the logo, I got an idea. I had some of the art yarn left from the 1st doll I made for Ashley's daughter, Boo and I thought it would be fun to make a doll similar to that one to wear a shirt with the Team Ashley logo. The Melamoose Co. very generously made the t-shirt and the coolest ruffle pants from some incredible Japanese linen blend fabric. And to top it all off, Boo is wearing a hair clip made by Ashley's sister, Perry. Perry sent me a couple clips a little while back, and this seemed like the perfect doll to wear one. You can find more of her work at

As you can see, this doll was a group effort and made with a lot of love.  The auction for Boo is up and running now right here:
  If you are interested in bringing her home, simply put in a bid before the auction ends at 7 pm EDT 11/4/11. At the end of the auction, I will send a paypal invoice to the winner and send the proceeds to the local non-profit Children's Hospital, in Ashley's name. If you would like to send a donation to the hospital directly too that would be fantastic :)
Thank you! xoxo  Debra
