Where has this been all my life?  Goodbye, yellowing scrapbooks of design ideas. Hello, a community of like-minded members with your interests and aesthetic taste. This is a marketers' dream of input. This is a designers' treasure of input. Hello Pinterest!

Crafthaus.com is a wonderful social network and presentation marketplace for cutting edge artists & craftspeople!
Not just pretty pictures and promotion, but a real opportunity for the artistic craft community to discuss ideas and share timely information.

Etsy.com is your direct connection for the purchase of original handmade crafts from talented artists & craftspeople!
"Etsy is more than a marketplace: we're a community of artists, creators, collectors, thinkers and doers"
Love it, unfortunately I have to reshoot all of my product line photos to fit their format, so...

I am hoping to get my Etsy shop up by Winter, 2016.  See me at Louise Metals!

After my three wonderful years with the project, The Illinois Artisan Project has fallen to budget cutting in Springfield. I will always be grateful for this honor and miss the great people I worked with in this project.
