I have the coolest friends - Project Ani

My friend Ani is a treasure. She's a strong and beautiful woman who is currently starting a new life for her and her 2 1/2 year old son. We've been friends for years and now we are neighbors, as well.
This new season for Ani hasn't been easy. After being laid off recently, she's been doing everything she can to make ends meet for her and her energetic little man, having garage sales - scraping pennies together.
What I haven't mentioned yet, though is how creative and artistic Ani is.  She's really a creative genius. So when life hands her lemons, she's making some beautiful lemonade. I gave her some supplies, she added to them from her collection of vintage brooches, lace and other items and voila! BEAUTY.

Today I've listed 4 of her jewelry pieces in my etsy store to sell for her to put food on the table.
(One sold before I even got to post this!)
I hope that as you shop for the holidays, you'll consider shopping in Ani's section of my store.  It will be a blessing to more than just the giver and the recipient.

Sale soon?

Let's be honest... I've been hauling my stuff to festivals and art shows for 7 and a half years now and I'm too tired to do it anymore. This holiday season, I backed out of all but two events, only choosing them because they are run by 1- a personal friend, and 2-me....
The Backyard sales have really been fun! But I didn't schedule one this year... So here's my question... If I had one, would you come?
(for those of you readers in Los Angeles!)
