Saturday, July 11th was one of those days I wait for all year: the 3rd Annual Pinewood Derby art car race/fundraiser over at Popps Packing. This year was double the excitement for me, because I got to make a racer of my very own. Taking into account that my car was designed for effect, and not roadworthiness, I feel very proud of the results.
As usual, I went absolutely ballistic at the silent auction, aggressively bidding for some of my favorite artists, and coming home with a full heart and full hands: Rose DeSloover, Andrew Krieger, Mary Fortuna, and Tsz Yan Ng all came home with me! Equally exciting and flattering was the bidding war that broke out over the Meta Mobile; things got a little heated there for second. I heard a rumor that Popps might put this event on hold for a while…I sure hope not. Every year gets better, more ridiculous, and more fun. Viva la Pinewood Derby!!
