My Etsy Shop is Open!!!!

I've been wanting to open my on-line Etsy arts and crafts shop for quite a while now. For people that are not familiar with Etsy it is a website that sells handmade items.
A couple months ago my sister-in-law Cassandra introduced me to a blog about a young couple with an 11-month-old daughter Cora. Cora battled cancer for some time, and just the other day Cora went to be with Jesus.
Cora's story touched my heart. 
I found on Cora's blog that her family is starting a "Cora Paige Playground" fund. So, I donated some money then a found another blogger who started to sell her craft items on Etsy, and 100% of her proceeds will be donated to the fund. I bought one of her items, then thought to myself, "I need to do this."  I figured the Lord blessed me with talents and I decided to put them to use.
I am donating 100% of all proceeds to the playground fund, which is managed by the parents' church. I'm inviting all of you to visit my Etsy store at http://handmadebykara.etsy.com
