in celebration of october being breast cancer awareness month, here are some items from etsy.  these generous vendors are giving a minimum of 10% of their proceeds (most even more) to the help find a cure. when looking for a breast cancer awareness item please be sure the vendor is donating part of his/her proceeds to the cause. unfortunately, there are quite a few vendors out there selling breast cancer awareness items strictly for their own personal gain. let’s stick together and find a cure!

u.k. artist, su blackwell takes everyday books and turns them into something extraordinary. her incredible three dimensional dioramas manage to capture the essence childhood vulnerabilities in haunting, fragile settings, while also conveying a sense of childhood anxiety and wonder. there is a quiet melancholy in the work, depicted in the material used, and choice of subtle color. su also ventures outside the book medium to full size paper installations.
