Help an Etsian today!

Oh, you don't know what an Etsian is? Well, it is an individual who sells their handmade (or vintage or supplies) products on the web marketplace called Etsy. I know a wonderful Etsy seller and blogger who could really use some revenue from sales right now. I became acquainted with her work and her blog when we were both vying for the same trophy on an Etsy "Kill this Thread" thread in the forums. I have been hooked since!

She has two Etsy shops: Clay It Again where she sells wonderful polymer clay creations, and 12 Midnight Oils where she showcases her beautifully rendered oil paintings. She also sells on another handmade goods website called Artfire. Here are a couple of items you will find in her shops:Visit her blog today to read features and interviews of other artists and Etsians, and to find inspiration. Find out about her husband's journey after being diagnosed with IPF (Interstitial Pulmonary Fibrosis) and her search for employment. You will also see her husband's amazing woodcarving ability, and you can purchase her works directly from her blog.

At a time when we all are feeling the pinch of a shrinking economy, she and her husband are feeling the added stress of a devastating illness that means he has become unemployed, and her difficult task of balancing his care with her new job search. If you are looking to spend money online for a gift or for yourself, stop by and give her blog and shops a look-see.

A little help from many sources
will go a long way!
