Amazing Artisan- PES Film

Sometimes you can find some real gems on You Tube. Some of these videos are just amazing. I love the work of this guy, PES Film. I find myself watching his videos and wondering "How does he do that?" I hope you enjoy some of his work too.


For more great visual candy, check out PES Film's website.

Last night at our Northshore LArtisans meeting, MamasLittleMonkeys told LisaRaspino and I about a site called Entrecard. This is a site where you can advertise your blog on other people's blogs and they can advertise on yours. I am so happy "Mama" was able to explain this all to me and open my eyes to some of the great tools out there for people to use. I have set up my account and have a couple of wonderful blogs who will have ads on this blog. You will be able to see the advertising blog in the space to the right...just under the Save Handmade Teddy Bear (I love that bear).

How cool is that?

I hope more members will be able to make the next Northshore meeting and join in on learning great ideas from each other.

Check out Mama's 2 Etsy shops and Lisa's shop. They are both very talented. Thanks to both of you for putting up with my senior moments last night :)

CPSIA- Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act

Tonight, the Northshore group of the LArtisans met and discussed some topics that were of interest to us. One of the issues of significant importance is about the CPSIA. One of our members tonight, MamasLittleMonkeys, told us that today was a blog-in to post and inform others about what this law is and how it will affect us all. MamasLittleMonkeys had an excellent post on her blog, MamasLittleMonkeys. She is able to speak about this act so much more eloquently than I can. Please go to her blog and read what she has to say. This act will affect us all in one way or another. I am all for having our goods safe for all, but there has to be a better way to go about it than this.
