Today I’d like to share with you a Mother/Daughter team shop on Etsy, FromScrapstoCrafts. Daughter, Kristin is selling their handmade goods to help raise money for her Mother’s hand surgeries. You can check out her blog and read the full story here.
EDIT: I apologize, I first heard of Kristin and her shop through Pillows-A-La-Mode who wrote about their shop here.
Her Mother, Linda, has been creating her own paintings on glassware for years now to support her Father who suffered from a stroke over 10 years ago. In the last year she has suffered intense pain in her hands to where she could no longer paint and support her family. The doctor confirmed she has severe nerve damage in both hands. In order to regain her hand strength and use, she must undergo $8,000 in surgeries and after-care or she will lose complete use of her hands.
Don’t forget to check out her Facebook page with other Fundraiser items here. Lots of the glassware is pictured there!
The great thing about this Etsy shop is that the items are made by them both! All scrapbooking items are made by Kristin: handmade cards and gift tags, her Mother made these: wine glasses and glassware, solar lights, candles and candle holders. Here are a few of my favorites in her shop!
Birthday Card, 5×7″ for sale on Etsy $4
Snowmen Gift Tag Set (6) with custom box for sale on Etsy $6
3″ Penguin Pillar Candle for sale on Etsy $7
Strawberry & Flowers Cake Stand Server for sale on Etsy $30
(this might be my favorite, I love strawberries painted on glass!!!)
Smiling Snowman Wine Glass Candle Holder for sale on Etsy $8
I hope you will all check out her shop and favorite her items or share them with your networks! Or if you feel the need, I guess I can deal if someone else wants to buy her Strawberry painted glassware!!!
Please show your support in any way you can, to see such artistic talent be taken away is very sad. She paints beautifully and I hope she can pick up a brush again soon!
