Handmade Help

.

So I spoke to Pip, the crafter queen and her suggestion was to start it's own blog of Handmade Helpers.

I am always so impressed with the blogging communities generosity. especially since I am still relatively new. The outpouring of emotions over the horrid week-end Victorian fires is palpable everywhere you look. Death toll continuing to rise well into 3 figures, so many homes, and animals and dreams gone. I am hoping we can make a difference here.

The best way to co-ordinate all the people that are wanting to help is if everyone handles there own Ebay auction and sends on their goods and donations directly. Here I am hoping to post links to what everyone has up for auction with an end time and hopefully pictures so that everyone knows what goodies are on offer. I am also hoping that people will give me an end total as well so we can have a little running tally. Here is some guidance on how to make a listing, if you have any dramas please let me know.

It is nice to know that community is not just your next door neighbours, it is all of us.

Cindy, is it ok to put the button for your blog on our blogs to help spread the word, even if we're not holding an auction?
