So, a few years ago, I stumbled across Etsy.com. It is a fantasatic sight of wonderfully, creative folks that have online shops set up with their artistic goodies. For the truly creative and funky-minded, a nice living can be made. For others, it's a great creative outlet that provides some spending money. There are subgroups of the site as well ~ the Vegan Etsy Team, Military Brats, etc. Also, I love browsing the sites where people use old items and repurpose them. When I lived in O'Fallon, Illinois, there is an annual festival called the "Strange Folk Festival" (thank you Autumn Wiggins!). It is an amazing group of eclectic folks (most of whom have Etsy shops). One lady took old ties and repurposed them into purses ~ sooo cute!
