Boxes we dont need no stinking boxes!

Today I got all of the flat rate priority boxes delivered to my doorstep! They seem pretty small, so we shall see, whether they are going to work out or not. I maybe just end up making my own funky boxes and painting them all pretty or something :) I will keep you posted. In other news we had 4 more people sign up yesterday! One person already has their ad up on the sidebar, welcome SkinEssentials

I am hoping to get the other ads within the next couple of days!

Things are moving along rather nicely here, I have most of the bags made and everyday I get more and more emails of people signing up to send in samples! I am hoping that this week I will start posting photos of items as I receive them. Please if you are interested in promoting your shop and helping out a good cause, email me. Follow our blog, vote on the sanctuary to which you would like to see the money go, and post about us, spread the word.

reusable grocery bags!!!

Today I started making some of the reusable grocery bags, that the sample sets will come in.  I made 2 so far hahah, which is a start.  I upcycled a vinyl tablecloth and made it into 2 awesome market totes, and I think I have enough of that tablecloth left for 1 more bag!  I love when I feel like things are coming together, and I am getting work done.  Too bad the batteries died today, or I would take a photo of these cute bags to share!!

10 people signed up, already!!!

So far we have 10+ crafters/artists signed up to send in promotional samples for these bags!  How exciting!  Please feel free to check out the folks with ads to the right, all of those people are sending in promo items for our first vegan sample bag!!!!!
So, what is next?  Well I need to get my bootie movin and start sewing all of the reusable grocery bags together, and getting them ready!  We are hoping to have enough samples for 50 bags the first time around, so that means I have some sewing on my hands.  
What else could you ask for, all vegan samples from many different shops, and to top it off a nice reusable grocery tote!
Thats all the update I have for now
Oh yeah and check us out on myspace
Everyone who sends in samples will also be put on our top friends on myspace to gain exposure that way too!!  Email me with any questions.

Our very first vegan sample bag!!

Now looking for all types of vegan items for our first vegan sample bag!
What are we looking for?  

Anything that is made without animal products and the ingredients or materials arent tested on animals.  Vegan doesnt just pertain to food.  Soaps, food, jewelry, papercrafts, animal toys and treats, buttons, magnets, handknit items....If you have a craft and arent sure if your samples would be vegan, please feel free to email me at and I would be glad to clarify!

We are hoping to make 50 bags for our first vegan sampler, so when sending items please keep that it mind. 
Submissions are due by March 31, and the bags will go on sale April 14th and 10% of sales will go to an animal charity that will soon be announced!!!

This is a great opportunity to get the word out about your shop, and share handmade items with folks around the country!
