Today I stumbled onto an Etsy seller, Gypsy Charms Jewelry, via the Greater New Orleans Foundation website. She has listed an SOS necklace with the proceeds from the sale of this necklace going to The Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund. It’s a lovely necklace and I applaud this seller and all the other Etsyers supporting the oil spill relief effort. I was so inspired that I listed my popular Southern Pecan Pralines as another item with proceeds donated to the relief fund. And then I was feeling gung ho and created a Gulf Oil Spill Relief Treasury. Check it out! Includes a keychain from a favorite seller, RiskyBeads.
Instead of complaining about the sublime ineptitude of BP and the unfathomable, astronomical damage this spill is causing each day, I will attempt to heed the words of Mother Teresa as per The Secret and the Law of Attraction: “I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.” Yes, let’s all try to attract positive energy and not marinate in this catastrophe which affects many things including… (since I must relate my rant to food for this blog) the seafood industry! I don’t want crude in my shrimp gumbo! According to the NY Times Diners Journal blog, many are worried about the havoc on our seafood…
Recently, three lovely Etsy treasuries have included me.
All of them chose my Southern Pecan Pralines.
Thank you again to Corky Crafts and KnitsYoursKnotMine (unfortunately treasuries expire, so these ones aren’t viewable anymore).
Kudos to you on some skilled hand-picking of theme items! Current treasury featuring Adore a Jar Bakery:
Readers: Do check out these Etsy treasuries, and if you have an idea for a treasury of your own, go ahead and create one on Etsy! You may have Favoritized several items that fit under one theme- for example, your favorite color, tree-related knick knacks, or summertime handmade items… you name it. Go for it! It’s a great way to contribute to the community and boost visibility of sellers you like.
Thank you to Fridah at Craftcount.com for featuring Adore a Jar Bakery this week!
