Hey, everyone! Remember in previous years when I sold prints or copies of my Egyptian Eye abstract art? I have exciting news!
I’ve decided to sell prints or copies of the Egyptian Eye once again to fundraise and help my family attend the annual Chromosome 18 conference. The print will be about an 8 X 10 size and mounted on foam board or similar ready to hang.
The Chromosome 18 conference helps me get over my fears and my emotions. It helps me feel brave, courageous, and enjoyable. Here’s an example: Last year in July when my family and I were inside the airport, I was fearful, nervous, tired, and afraid; yet, the view I got from the airplane was amazing and it was all worth it.
The really fun part is that YOU get to choose your own price! The base price is $25 to cover cost of printing, mounting, and shipping (US Only – Our overseas friends can email my mom at Camilla Downs @ gmail.com if you’re interested in purchasing a print).
OR …. If you simply want a photo quality print, the base price is $15 to cover cost of printing and shipping. For example, if you wish to donate $25 to my fundraiser, then you would enter $40. Use this Paypal link. (Please note whether you want “Just the Print” or “Mounted Print”)
The Chromosome 18 conference means a lot to me because I get to meet new friends and spend time with old friends. It also means a lot to me because I get to travel to a new city with my family.
I want to check out the swimming pool and have fun with new and old friends. I also want to explore the city if the weather and temperature are good. I also want to check out new restaurants.

Here’s a story inspired by the Egyptian Eye:
The Wise Sultan and The Camel
Once many years ago, a camel walked in the Egyptian desert. The camel wondered if it had an Egyptian eye. So the camel passed a wise sultan who was on his way to a faraway land named Butterfly Land.
The camel asked, “Do you know if I have an Egyptian eye? I’ve been wondering for years now.” The wise sultan chuckled and said, “Certainly seems like you have an Egyptian eye but it is up to you to decide.”
The camel said, “Thanks. Wait, what?” The wise sultan repeated his words. So to thank the wise sultan, the camel offered to give the wise sultan a ride to Butterfly Land. So to this day if you see a camel with an Egyptian eye carrying people and maybe more sultans as well, that very well be the camel you read about in this story.
That’s the end of the story.
Here’s a story inspired by how I feel about attending the Chromosome 18 Conference:
Once many years, a little girl named Rainbow loved traveling to new places. One day, Rainbow decided to write a story. “Hello! My name is Rainbow. My family and I have been going to a conference called Party Dancers for many years”, wrote Rainbow.
One day at the Party Dancers, she faced many fears in just 1 day. Rainbow was very determined to conquer more fears. A couple of years later at the Party Dancers, Rainbow met a friend she connected with through Bookworm the previous year and had so much fun. Rainbow knew many friends and people that year.
Rainbow even tried to get in the cold pool. This year, Rainbow was pumped to go to the Party Dancers again since she found out most of her friends would be at the Party Dancers. Rainbow traveled to Sugary Land for the Party Dancers.
Again, Rainbow met the same friend again and chatted and had fun. Now, Rainbow was pumped to go to the next Party Dancers conference. Rainbow finished her story and sent it off to the publisher.
The publisher was very impressed. Many years past and Rainbow’s story was now a best seller book.
That’s the end of the 2nd story.
Here’s a poem I wrote about the Egyptian Eye from May 2016 – It’s also included in my book:
Enchanted Egyptian Beauty
Triangular prisms sprout rainbows
From the tip of a triangle, triangles peak
Amazing colorful teeth pointing toward a
It is an Egyptian Beauty!
