Report from ACFW’s Silent Auction

T-Shirts were a popular item this year.

I’ve had the privilege of coordinating the Silent Auction for the ACFW conference for the past several years. All proceeds from 2012 go to the scholarship fund for the conference in 2013.

Awesome Handmade Desktop Secretary

The wooden pieces above and below were handcrafted by Gary Harders of South Dakota.

Handcrafted Duck Call

Gift Certificates were offered for Kim Sawyer’s B&B, other vacation spots, critiques, E-book formatting, book trailer, private coaching, and much, much more.

Service Certificates were snapped up by savvy writers.

Specially designed and hand crafted items poured into the bookstore. (I realized too late that the picture of the lovely hand crafted jewelry did not turn out.)

One of a kind afghans show our ACFW Members talent.

Over 50 items were offered by our generous ACFW members.

Assorted baskets of goodies.

Big baskets, little baskets.

Something for everyone


"Emma Grace"I still can’t get over this one. Janna Franklin, the lady in the middle created this lovely lifelike baby. Kim Sawyer out bid all of us with her first bid. I just mentioned that if I felt I could justify it to Husband (after bidding on several other items) I would out bid her.

After the banquet Kim came and paid for her purchase and placed “Emma Grace” in my arms. I call that SHARING THE LOVE.

  1. Sharon, that’s what I love about the Christian writers. I see so much of God in the acts, not just the words. I hope to be able to be a part of this conference some day soon. Blessings to those who give.

    1. I hope to see you at an ACFW conference soon, Melissa. My first one was in 2007 and as a Christian writer. . . that’s where OUR PEOPLE are. This conference is quite honestly the highlight of my year.

  2. That’s so like Kim Sawyer! And to Janna Franklin, that’s quite a gift! I’m sorry I missed donating to the silent auction this year. I did a door prize, but next year I’ll do another silent auction item. I’m already on the lookout!
