Foundhandmade is a unique way to shop. A buyer is brought to a page with blocks of photos showing them either handmade items, vintage items or supplies. Clicking on a block brings you to the website page where that particular item is for sale. There are also opportunities for buyers to win items.

Sellers get exposure by having their blocks link directly to their website, whether it is a personal website or an online selling venue. You can either buy blocks: One block – One month - $5, Five Blocks (non-touching, randomly placed) – One month - $20, Four-merged blocks (one larger image) – One month - $30, or enter one of their events for a chance to win a free block.

They also have a "Where to Sell" feature. Here you can find traffic rankings of various websites where crafters, artists and designers can sell.

Etsy Envy

The Etsy Bloggers Team is blogging about something from Etsy that you wish you had thought of first. As soon as I read that I new exactly what I was going to blog about. I came across 2ReVert.
This husband and wife team make jewelry from old skateboards. I think my idea envy stems from the fact that my son has been skating for over 9 years so we have gone through our share of skateboard decks. Here are a few of their unique pieces.

Micro Dots Necklace

Reversible Teardrop Necklace


Until I came across their jewelry I had no idea that the layers in the deck of a skateboard were so colored and varied.

I Was Featured

A few week's ago I was featured on Angie's blog. It was very exciting for me and she wrote a very nice review of my shop. You can find it here if you would like to read it.

Of course I then had to go and check out Angie's shop, Handmade by Angie. I was totally blown away by what a talented lady she is. Not only does Angie have crocheting and cards, she also has ceramics. Here are my favorite picks from each of the 3 categories.
