Etsy Angels Team

This discussion is public.
The Etsy Angels work together to raise money for different 'local' charities: the Chintimini Wildlife Rehab Center in Corvallis, Oregon; Friendly Kitchen of Concord, NH; Bellwether Harbor Foundation in Michigan, Ouachita River Valley Animal League in Monroe, Louisiana, Anderson House in Prince Edward Island, Canada, etc.
In November we hosted a fun BNR for everyone that wanted to take part. We had 50 sales in a matter of hours! All had a wonderful time!
If you like what you see, and you would like to join a very "close", small Etsy Team, please contact Sewinggranny or Wildlifer78 for more information!
Our Team was formed after the many hours spent together promoting for Dawn’s Boys; an effort that began in late December 2007 after a Jewelry artist who was on both Etsy and Ebay lost her life in an automobile accident. She left behind two little boys. Several "Angels" came together to help. After spending countless hours promoting donations from more people than we could imagine that wanted to help, many friendships were made. We couldn’t imagine it all ending without creating a Team for Dawn’s Angels. ♥ So, every other month, we get together as a Team and pick a new charity to raise funds for....all in Dawn's name and memory.

Hi Angels, I am back!
Yesterday was our annual shareholders' meeting and for the past 2 weeks I put in 14+ hrs. every single day (+2.5 hrs. of commute time every day). Just had to get tons of financial statements and charts ready for the main company and 2 offshore subsidiaries. I even managed to lose 3 lbs., and that was really really good :)
The Holidays feel more like Holi"DAZE" to me this year.... Anyone else feel this way?
I have not had much time to do anything else. I am taking 1/2 day off today and hope to get my creative juices flowing again.
Amanda, congrats on your 7th anniversary! 7 years is a long time! I hope we make it this long (we have been married for 5 years). How is Chloe?
Mel, beautiful treasury! I faved it today. I did manage to go to Joanns on Black Friday but did not spend much money. It seems I go every single Sunday, so my sewing room is well stocked. Do you shop online too? How are you and SisseLou feeling?
Peggy, I am sorry to hear about your pneumonia; I hope you are feeling better. I have been coughing for the past week or so too. I am going to the Dr. in case I don't get better by tomorrow.
Sharla, love your new listings. I am sorry to hear about your Grandma. Where in OR do you live? I have nieces and a nephew in Portland and I could ask them if they could watch the babies while you are gone. They are adorable kids (17-19).
Michelle, I am sick of turkey too!!! How is little Jacob?
Hi Lisa! Hugs to you and your mom!
Maryann, great news! I am so happy that you are doing well! Hugs!
Hi Mona, you have been super extra productive as always!!!

So sorry I've been sooo MIA lately. Just got back from the coast for work last night and have been out on the river doing water monitoring all day. Been running around doing paperwork for the oil spill....and, now I'm printing off last minute things for my 1/2 marathon which I run SATURDAY!!!!
I'm running for the beautiful children of St. Jude. Thank you ALL for your support, encouraging words, and love...and thanks for the wonderful donations you've sent to St. Jude on my behalf. It means a lot!!
Love you all!!!
So sorry I don't have time to catch up right now. I hope you all are doing well, and are having some great holiday sales! I've had a few sales in the last week or so...that's been exciting!
I know some of you have been sick, and have family members and friends who have been sick. I just keep ALL of my Angel Sisters in my thoughts and prayers.
Please don't forget about your Secret Angel Santa responsibilities. If you CANNOT send out a gift, PLEASE contact me. There is nothing more upsetting than doing the work for YOUR secret Angel only to NOT receive anything in return. We've had this happen ONE time in the past and it's not fair.
I'll be sending mine next week. I don't want my Angel getting too antsy!! LOL!!!
Hugs to you all....Will try to stop by sometime this weekend but I'm gonna be very busy. I'm gonna get in a quick jog in the morning before heading to Memphis. Will be back Sunday night!

Hi ladies. I have a new listing. And I bought the domain for Cloud Nine Designz today. So I'll have my own web address and a blog. I am really excited. Hope you are all having a great week.

Isabela - I think you said it best when you said Holi"DAZE" - that is SO what it feels like...And December has just begun...
Amanda (chloe) - my son is running a "maraFUNrun" this Sunday! It's his first marathon, and he's super excited. He's been a part of the running club at school and earned 3 ribbons so far. Once he finished this marathon, he'll get an award for 26.2 total miles!
