My Big Debut!

Okay, it's not really all that big - but it is kind of a big deal to me. If you look right over there in my sidebar -----> you'll see that I've opened up a wee little Etsy shop! It's true!

This is the deal: 100% of the shop's proceeds are going to benefit the Arthritis Foundation's Camp JAM (Juvenile Arthritis Matters). Yep 100%. That's how much I love this camp and what it does for families like mine who have a kiddo dealing with arthritis. You can read more about our family's experience at camp here.

I don't intend to go into "production mode" and have a zillion things for sale but this is a small thing that I can do to feel like I am doing something in the face of this disease. Over 46 million people suffer from arthritis and over 300,000 of those people are children. There is not yet a cure.


  1. Aw congrats my dear!!! Its a cute little shop for a great cause! Good luck to you!

  2. I wish you all the success in the world! It was your pincushions that attracted me to this blog. Some other blogger mentioned them. :-)

  3. Congrats! I really love that you are donating all of the proceeds. That is such an inspiration! I love your blog. You are so crafty. Keep up the amazing work!

  4. Congrats on your shop! I just had to buy a little pouch, and it was hard to choose the one I liked best! :)
