We love art. We love all kinds of art, but the best is the kind that gets your hands dirty. It seems we rarely have time to revel in this type of creativity these days, but we certainly try when we can.

So recently we donated a piece of artwork (created by Leslie) to the BlogHer ’10 Voices of the Year Gala and Art Auction that took place in New York City on August 6. Ok, so what is BlogHer? Well, its pretty much what it sounds like. From the website: “BlogHer is a community and media company created in partnership with women in social media… Today, BlogHer is the largest community of women who blog: 23+ million unique visitors per month (Nielsen Netratings). Engaged, influential and info-savvy, these women come to BlogHer to seek and share advice, opinions and recommendations.”

The Gala/Art Auction was also curated by kirtsy. What is kirtsy you say? From their website: “kirtsy is a social media platform of pure goodness. A plaza for the peachy. A portal to the pretty. A place to find cool things. kirtsy is the place to find and/or link to anything and everything on the Web that you’d like to share. The front page content is ever-changing and always cool.”

Although we’ve really just begun exploring these wonderful communities, we really dig what we’ve found so far. The proceeds from the Art Auction (which began post gala/conference is still happening online Ebay here!) go to The Nature Conservancy, benefiting the people and wildlife of the Gulf Coast oil spill. Our piece already sold (yaay!), but there are many other cool pieces to choose from.

Speaking of cool pieces… I am always looking for affordable and unique artwork. Along with the BlogHer/Kirtsy Art Auction, I recently discovered some awesome, eco-friendly art at paperwork. Have you seen this?… supercool.

It’s part of  UGALLERY, which offers a more diverse collection of artwork… (and some heftier prices)

And both are connected to Daily Deal… a heck-of-a-deal bidding war for one piece of artwork offered up every day at 12pm EST. How fun is that!
Which reminds me, I need to go because i have two minutes to see what today’s selection is.

Have a great weekend everyone, and take the time to check out some art. It will fill your heart with love.
