Etsy, Have I Told You Lately How Much I Love You?

Oh Etsy how I have loved you over the past years. Ever since I saw that first advertisement in Craft Magazine, Volume 6, February 2008. To be honest, I was in it for the feature article "DeCorrugated" with links to Foldschool's DIY folded cardboard stools.

Sure, it started as an innocent love affair - just a little peek now and then, leading me on to committing my time and inspiration to you. But now - NOW - its for real. Thank you for inspiring a trans-national legion of artists and crafters to get together and help Haiti pick up the pieces right here and now.

Etsy, your Storque blog post today, entitled "Etsy Finds: Our Hearts Go Out to Haiti" is like an answer to my prayers - had I not only a few days ago been musing that I wish we (the Etsy community at large that is) could all give just a little bit more?

Thank you, thank you for stepping up and taking a leading role in inspiring us to lend a hand. And thank you for including me along the way.

The photographs to the left are on sale at RCA 102887's shop and available here. All proceeds go towards hopeforthehungry.org.

Re:Design Technologies' Paper Clip Chandelier Frame Tutorials can be purchased here for $14.40 or $6.50 with 50% proceeds going towards the Yele Foundation.
