I've been a member of Etsy Homefront since May of this year. This is one of the greatest parts of Etsy. These talented artisans, are full of support, generosity, and spirit. I wanted to highlight this great team and the things they've done for me in a blog entry, that will hopefully spurt some on looker to take a look at their shops, and see their wonderful work...as a reward for their wonderful hearts.
They have given me 2 types of support. They have supported me during this year while my husband was deployed. There were many days I needed some reassurance, some good thoughts, and an ear. The forum, the chats, and our cafemom board was always there. And this filled with women who have been there, done that, as all of Homefront are military spouses.
I was also given a ton of shop support. Ideas for new product, thoughts on pricing, photos, sales, etc. A lot of help was given when I was trying to open my second shop, Lilac Ave, and that helped to make it a smooth opening and a successful business.
I also sent out one request via our yahoo message board for donations for my husband's coomand FRG (family readiness group), for a silent auction, and was overwhelmed with the response of 20 donated items. These items were given, with nothing asked for in return, and at no cost, so that the entire proceeds could go to help pay for our homecoming, and single sailor gifts for those returning home with no family.
These are just a few of the items, I am in love with from our group of fabulous Etsians!
