Buy Handmade for the Holidays

In an effort to encourage consumers to consider the source of gifts they'll be purchasing this year, there is a new promotion that has been launched that asks people to take the Buy Handmade Pledge. has been created to promote the awareness and importance of buying non-commercially produced items and supporting local artists.

"We encourage all consumers to be aware of the social and environmental implications of their purchases."
"Buying handmade is better for people, better for the environment, and better for giving truly special and well-crafted gifts."

I couldn't have said it better! Please take time to visit and take the pledge!
And do consider buying handmade items throughout the year.
Thank you!

It's the Great Pumpkin........Festival!

It's that time of year again! Time for the Huntsburg Pumpkin Festival!
I don't have a complete schedule for the weekend's events, but there is a parade and pancake breakfast, lots of food, games, crafts and fun.
This will be my third year as a vendor at this event and it just keeps getting bigger and better. I am looking forward to being able to promote my Etsy shop this year and introduce my customers to the concept of buying online any time of the year. I'm sure it will be a great success.

Visit me, LazyT, October 6th and 7th in Huntsburg, Ohio.
I'll be sure to post photos!
