Only a few days left to support this amazing opportunity – not only is Academy of Handmade Artists and Supporters creating the “Oscars of Crafting” but they are also presenting at SXSW and have been working hard here in SO Cal to benefit artisans, crafters, and creative people tyring to make a living making the world a better, craftier place. Their events have impressed me, from Next Level Business Workshop to their Etsy Craft Party in OC last summer.

Just $10 can make a huge difference!!! If each of you on my friends list gave $10, they would have well over $20,000 – that's FOUR TIMES what they need to raise!!!

If you have ever tried to make your crafting business work and wondered why there weren't resources to help you, well, Sharon and KC wondered the same thing and that is how the academy was born. Let's help it stay alive and be the resource we've always yearned for, for years and crafters to come.

Thanks for stopping by! Please follow me on social media using the links on the above right or below this post. And leave me a comment – I’d love to chat crafts with you!
