the news stories dwindle, but haiti is still there...

life goes on - that's just the way life is. but there are still little bits of things we can do to help those around us in need, without creating huge riffs in our day to day routine. many of you probably already browse through etsy shops occassionally (or regularly, or obsessively as the case may be.)
i'd like to encourage you, who are reading my silly ramblings right now, to visit one special etsy shop started by rebecca sower. i won't go into all the background in this post, but you can read all about what rebecca has been doing with a group of haitian crafter ladies and how the earthquake has affected them, and how you can assist, here on rebecca's blog, and here, on the haiti by hand blog. any of you who have watched the movie "what about bob" with bill murray will know it's all about "baby steps."
please take a moment and click on that haiti by hand button over there to the left - see it? i have donated this sea glass and pearl necklace, and i would dearly love to send it to one of you!


  1. I love your necklace. Perfect for summer time beach fun! I should donate something too. I'll have to check the site out later to see how to do it.
    have a sweet and blessed day!

  2. Deb, the necklace is beautiful. Such a wonderful way to help. I will check out her site. Have a wonderful week.

  3. I love the sea glass necklaces! I got one in Kona, but it broke. They are so pretty!
    All your art work is exquisite! I wish I had your talent, Marcia
