As several of you already know, I am a fairly crafty person. I like to make new things myself, or at least try. I’ve attempted knitting (Aunt Marie spent several couch hours with me over the course of a few days to try to teach me how to knit. After 3 failed attempts and countless forearm cramps I gave up…for now…), I loved pottery class in high school (note – one day, a pottery wheel may make a good gift!), I own and use a sewing machine and desperately want to learn how to quilt, and my most recent craft I am seriously working towards mastering is making jewelry. I’ve made jewerly for my bridesmaids, for friends weddings, as gifts, and have even made jewelry for wine glasses (yay wine charms! now we can remember who’s glass is who’s).
So after many time of being told that I need to sell the things I’m making, I finally gave in and started a shop on Etsy.com. I’m making new things every day, but here are some of my favorites:
What’s even more cool is that I am donating 50% of every sale to the Ryder family and Libby’s battle with cancer (you can read more about Libby at libbyryder.blogspot.com). I don’t personally know Libby, but her story touched my heart and I want to be able to help.
