I am leaving for vacation tomorrow and we are traveling to Gatlinburg, Tennessee to do some hiking and sight-seeing. I thought I would use Etsy Shop Local to see what fine crafters hail from where I will be spending all of next week (with very limited Internet access, so you will not be seeing me on here):
Yesterday, Heather posted items to honor the start of Baseball season featuring her favorite team. I thought it was a great idea and I would follow up with some from my favorite team (and I am so glad Heather is a White Sox fan rather than a Cubs fan, or there might be a throw-down here):
Since Kim has added her unique Relay For Life shooter on the Whiff and Sniff site, and I have registered my Relay For Life team with our local Relay, I ventured out to Etsy to see what shops are offering items to raise money for cancer awareness and the fight against cancer.
While Four Purls is a small Etsy shop, this particular item stood out to me the most in my Relay For Life search on Etsy. It’s a bracelet that is hand knit using a hemp string and purple beading. It’s so unique and eye catching – and all of the proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Grab it now & order one for your Relay walking buddy and you’ll be walkin’ in style!
I also like the Relay For Life HOPE magnets in Tabasc1′s shop. They’re glass marbles made into magnets! These carry the theme from the 2009 Relay For Life: Celebrating Hope. At just $1 each, you could get one for each of your Relay teammates as a thank you for participating.
If you haven’t participated in a Relay event, I encourage you to do so…especially if you know someone that is fighting cancer or has lost their battle to cancer. I’ve set my fundraising goal and so can you!
Yep, I’ve got it! I love watching the Olympics, both the Summer & Winter Games. I love watching history being made with broken records and first-time medal winners and I always get a chill down my spine when I hear the Star Spangled Banner playing in honor of a US athlete winning a gold medal. So, to celebrate the Olympics, here’s some Olympic-inspired handmade go of odies!
Pick up one of these hand-knit coffee cup cozies from Underhill House. It’s made from 100% lambswool so it’s soft to the touch but long lasting. The Olympic Red cozy celebrates the Olympics with the Olympic rings in white and a base color of red – the colors of Canada. Fits most regular “to go” cups, so save a tree and instead of using a paper cozy, go green & use one of these!
Show your Olympic fever every day when you sport one of these leather wristbands from Leather Made Nice. This shop is an amazing shop, offering personalized leather bracelets and medic alert bracelets to belts and keychains and more! Their sales must speak for their work – Leather Made Nice has been open for less than two years and they’ve got nearly 500 sales! These Olympic-inspired leather wristbands are hand cut, hand stamped and hand dyed and comes with one of three sayings on it. Get yours now to show your Olympic fever!
As I turn my attention back to the pairs free program, share with me what your favorite thing about the Olympics is!
