Save The Gulf T-Shirts and Cute Soy Candles

I thought i'd feature two etsy sellers for you today that caught my eye, rctees and ClassyChicBoutique The first caught my eye from posting in the etsy team i'm a member of. I know that for those of you in the USA this means a lot to you. The etsy shop rctees has made some awesome items in aid of Save The Gulf. There are various t-shirts and a lovely canvas bag. Here is what they said:

Wear the Message....SAVE THE GULF!!!25% of the proceeds from this tee will go directly to help with the Gulf animal cleanup through Craft Hope. We sent our first care package on Friday, June 11th and will continue sending supplies as long as it's needed. c/o IMMS (Institute for Marine Mammal Studies) Oil Spill Relief in Pensacola Florida. Pensacola Beach before OS ---> All of my life, family vacations have been spent at various beaches on the Gulf Coast. This is where my husband and I plan to retire. What is happening there now is a tragedy that must be stopped. Until BP steps up and takes full responsibility for the environmental devastation that is taking place, WE must band together and save our wonderful wildlife. I know I'm not alone is feeling that MY animals and MY beach are being destroyed. I'm angry and I'm willing to do what I can to help. Sending donations through Craft Hope is the least we can do. Rctees will be sending supplies through Craft Hope as long as they need us to. With your help we CAN make a difference.

There are various unisex t-shirts, womens t-shirts and an awesome canvas bag which i'm saving up for.

Another seller that caught my eye today was from the June Listing Club etsy forum thread, a group of shops committed to adding at least one new listing to their shop every day this month. Today etsy seller ClassyChicBoutique listed a blueberry cobbler casserole dish soy candle and hot baked apple casserole dish soy candle, see photos below. I've never seen these before and would love to have them in my kitchen, pity i'm so far away

PIF - Pay It Forward

I've not been online much as i've had a nasty cold, but i'm feeling a lot better now

I've just listed a PIF in my etsy shop for my Japanese doll pattern I've been wanting to do this for a while and finally got round to it. PIF meand Pay It Forward. So if you buy one of the PIF's on etsy you do a similar act yourself. For example if you have an etsy shop then list a PIF yourself or you can just do an act of kindness sometime through the day. The idea is that you don't make money on the sale just cover the etsy and paypal fees. Mine is listed for 50c and at the end of the day i only lose about 4c for each PIF. Some etsy sellers list something for 20c then the postage is a crazy price. e.g earings listed for 20c, postage $20. This is not a true PIF

Felt Fruit Salad - New Pattern

I've just created a new felt fruit pattern, fruit salad. Its just been listed in my etsy shop. Learn to make banana slices, strawberry slices, satsuma segments, peach slices, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi slices, pineapple chunks, whole strawberries and cream puffs.

You can make how many you like and mix and match your fruit salad, maybe you want a dish of strawberries and cream, maybe mixed berries.
