Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Back in January, one of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's designers contacted me to ask if I would would be willing to donate some prints to an upcoming project. The show does such incredible things for families in need and so I was thrilled to. The prints were used in the construction of a new home for Mary Ann Riojas and her four children in Fresno, California. The episode will air this Sunday (March 8). Here are some of the photographs that I donated and that you may spot if you watch carefully.

Absolutely amazing photos! I am so glad you are willing to share your giftedness in this way. My husband and I can hardly get through a show of EM:HE without shedding some tears. How awesome to actually be able to participate and change the course of a family's life! Congratulations.

Thank you all so much for your support!

Alas, I didn't actually see any of my photographs on the show, but I did get a credit on the ABC website. I'm glad my prints went to such a wonderful family. I hope they bring the tiniest bit of cheer into their lives.
