featured artist

OK PEOPLE! check out this featured artist today!
Curtis Schmidt is a friend of ours and works with my hubby. he is just chock FULL of christmas spirit to boot. He was "Crafting for good-not Evil" when he made this wreath. it all started with a face book call out for people to give him "gears". any thing that had a gear in it that you didnt want he wanted. i was like "oohhh some kinda good craftin must be going on in the Schmidt household. wonder what it could be?"I saw this project before it was finished and was just an amazing little box with gears and stuff on it and was totally facinated when i heard that he was going to somehow attach this box to a christmas wreath and donte it to an auction for charity.
for my steampunk friends out there, doesnt this just totally scream steampunk cristmas to you? the box powers the lights on the wreath!this wonderful piece of art went to a charity auction at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art here in Kansas City. it earned $150 for the benefit of KVC Behavioral HeathCare! go Curtis!
i love! love! LOVE! thise wreath. the person that won it is soooooo lucky.
