The idea is this... I have seen so many incredible talents out there in Blogland and Twitterverse. Creating beautiful crafts in all manner of ways. Some at home as a hobby, some to supply Etsy shops or high street stores. Whatever your motive, the items you create are stunningly beautiful in their own way.
Initially, I wondered about a silent auction but decided it would be rather complicated with bidding and sorting out lots etc. Then I hit upon the idea of a little shop (a page on my blog) for people to buy some of these works of art. I have some of my photos to frame and sell. I was hoping if I asked really nicely, some of you may like to donate an item or two. Items will be pictured on my blog with a link either to you or your shop. People can then have a browse on your site if they want to see more.
I was thinking of linking up my Just Giving page for all payments so all moneys will go directly to Unicef. Once the person has paid for their item, I will be notified by email from Just Giving and the item can be shipped off to them.
This is still a very new idea so if you see any flaws, have suggestions or would like to get involved I'm all ears. I would love to promote some of the gorgeous crafts I have seen as well as raise as much for Unicef as I can. I hope this is an idea that can benefit us all.
Huge thanks x
