Cheese Tray Auction!
My recycled, slumped wine bottle cheese tray with beaded canape set was finally auctioned yesterday, as I mentioned, for my son's school. It sat at a $17 bid for a while - I was getting nervous. I had put an estimated value on it at $50 because I don't know what the market is for these things. I made it all in the theme of the Great Event, Under The Sea, so I thought maybe I should have valued it higher, since it was specifically made for the auction. Yesterday was the last day, and YAHOO, it went for $110! I was so happy! I'm glad my donation to the school reached that amount of money, but I'm also glad for personal reasons! Sometimes, as an "artist", it's hard to put yourself out there!
