My first Blog

This is my first attempt at blogging...I hope that it is interesting and understandable.

I am not a person that communicates well online ...until I joined Etsy I have never had a conversation with someone online other than on Ebay a quick question. I joined Etsy at the suggestion of a marketing consultant.

I joined Etsy, listed some items and checked out the forums but never participated in them until one night I was checking out a thread that was fundraising for 2 young boys that had lost their mother in a motorcycle accident. For some reason I really became involved it that great venture. I met many beautiful, caring and loving people....when it came time to close the thread I was devastated...I thought I was going to loose contact with these people.

But there was more than I that felt this way and the Etsy Angel team was was for more than the friendships we developed but also for the help we felt we could give to others. We have done a few charities and have gone through some growing pains but it is still a great team and lots of support is shown here.

We now have 6 more new members that we are going to officially welcome to the team on Friday June the 6th. There will be games, fun and some sales in all our shops. Everyone is welcome to join us. Watch this thread for the one that will be opened on Friday for that purpose:

This is a fun and easy time before we gear up for our next charity...which will be a registered charity...something that we have discovered is probably for the best although we enjoyed the personal aspect of raising funds for individuals it leaves some doubt in others minds about what we do!

The Etsy Angels are a great is the one closest to me but I am also a member of the Fabulous Artist Moms....another team of close knit ladies that show alot of support and friendship.

Stay tuned for more information on The Welcome to the New Members of the Etsy Angels and the Take 10 Tuesday sales by the Fabulous Artist Moms.
