I've been busy lately writing and putting together different baskets to donate to various silent auctions. Over the next few weeks, I will highlight some of the fun baskets that I've been working on. The latest one that I put together was for a Mardi Gras silent auction at my church. I decided to do a tea and reading basket with goodies including a copy of my first Harlequin Historical Engagement of Convenience, tea, a mug, chocolate, a coffee scented candle in a tiny cup, a scone recipe with an attached tea pot cookie cutter and some fancy hand lotion just for fun.
Another basket I helped put together is one you can bid on! Fellow writer Melissa Cutler and I have created a cocktail gift basket. We donated it to the Brenda Novak Online Auction for Diabetes Research. This is a great on-line event in which authors donate items, critiques and all sorts of great things to help raise money for diabetes research. If you've never heard of this event, please check it out by clicking on the picture below. The auctions begins May 1, 2014 but you can preview the hundreds of items donated by some of your favorite authors.
