Etsy Sellers Unite to Help The Gulf Coast


The Deepwater Horizon oil spill happened on 
April 20th, 2010 and created an environmental disaster, 
with extensive impact already on marine and wildlife 
habitats in the Gulf Coast
This massive oil spill changed the lives of so many 
people and the many different types of wildlife in the 
Gulf Coast region.
We may never know the true effects of this incredible 
disaster and the long term environmental devastation 
for many years to come.
I believe that we can help to solve this problem and 
bring the Gulf back from this massive disaster. 
We all have to unite and help in whatever capacity 
that we can to clean up the Gulf. 
We only have one Earth, we are all responsible 
for this beautiful world that we share 
together.   
 
....................................................................................................
HelpTheGolfCoast is a collective Etsy shop to help
 the Gulf Coast recover from the massive BP oil spill. 
Etsy sellers have donated their items so that 
100% of the proceeds can be given to charity.

They have set up a separate Paypal account for this shop
and many Etsy sellers have donated their items to help 
raise money for the Gulf. 

100% of proceeds (after Etsy & Paypal fees) will be donated 


Both organizations have given HelpTheGulfCoast
permission to raise funds on their behalf.

So far, they have donated over $5000 to Oxfam America 
and to the National Wildlife Federation!! 

You can help support in this wonderful effort by spreading
the word about this amazing Etsy shop or purchasing an
item from HelpTheGulfCoast to help raise funds for 
the Gulf.


Thank you so much for your love and support! xo

GIVEAWAY: Distressing Delilah

GIVEAWAY for DistressingDelilah
I am so thrilled to be hosting a fabulous new
Giveaway for my dear friend Jenn...
...aka... DistressingDelilah!
Jenn is giving away these beautiful shabby chic earrings
from her fabulous Etsy shop DistressingDelilah.
To celebrate this special blog Giveaway, Jenn will
also be offering a special FREE SHIPPING Sale
for her Etsy shop DistressingDelilah.
Just type "Voleur Rocks!" in your message to
seller for your shipping refund. 
She creates one of a kind pieces of jewelry from
her collection of vintage and shabby chic jewels.
Jenn is also an amazing photographer and artist. I 
love her altered photo art prints.
They are filled with haunting images that will leave
a lasting impression.
Each image speaks of frozen time and space like
forgotten love that awakens with a gentle touch.
Jenn has an amazing eye for distressing digital
images to create beautiful and surreal worlds.
Here is my interview with Jenn to give you an
insight into her creative inspirations and processes.
1. When did you start creating 
or felt inspired to do so?
I started creating when I was a child, and have never 
stopped! I still have my first sketchbooks from when I 
was a little girl. As far as designing jewelry, that is my 
parents "fault!" They started beaded about 8 years 
ago. I never took any interest in it, until, I gave in and 
made my first bracelet. That was it, an addiction began!
2. How do you start your designs or 
what sparks your artistic ideas?
I usually have one piece or finding that I start 
with, be it a vintage clip on earring, or a brand 
new, shiny crystal. Then I go to my large stash of 
vintage jewelry, which I have sorted into drawers 
by colors and shades. I sift through the pieces 
until I fine just the perfect pairing to go with 
the component I began with. The design just 
sort of follows. I often don't have a design 
in mind when I start, it just sort of takes on 
a mind of it's own and evolves.
 3. What do you love about creating things 
with your own hands?
 I don't know if I can always call it love..it is a need! 
Yes, I enjoy it, but like most designers and artists, 
it is something I feel like I have to do every day. 
Without creating, I would feel empty! The most 
satisfying part though, is being able to portray a 
feeling or an emotion, without speaking a word.
 4. People love seeing other artist's studio space.
Do you have a picture or description of your 
"creative space"?
I have my own little studio right off our main 
living area. It is bright and airy, with sliding 
glass doors to the outside. My dogs often 
lie next to the doors and nap, while I work.
(That is Yogibear in the picture by the door)
5. What learning lessons do you have 
to share with other artists?
Be patient, be true to who you are and 
let your own spirit shine through. That 
is what makes an artist unique, when 
they can let others inside their own 
unique world, through their creations.
