SheSpeaks might be able to connect you! We know so many of our members are incredibly talented women and we'd like to connect the creative businesses and give you an opportunity to shine amongst our community and spread the word about what you do. So, if you make any sorts of arts & crafts and/or produce anything creative, this is for you.

For example, Betsy a very talented NJ artist creates silver jewelry in her "free" time and with a long-time friend they opened an online store the barefoot gallery. It's a great place to pick up handcrafted teacher's, babysitters and hostess gifts that are intricate and unique.  We know there are many other creative small businesses that our members and their friends have started.  Tell us about a business you love, or share the details about one that you started yourself.

We are planning to build a holiday forum to feature and highlight all these great talents of members and friends.  We'd like to connect our community of savvy and insightful members who are always looking for the latest products and the scoop on new trends to these great emerging small businesses.  Nominate yourself and others and we'll do the rest!

    I knit and crochet as well as make cards and scrapbook. I have an etsy page under pynoblem, but it doesn't represent nearly the work that I have been doing, and I haven't figured out how to do the shipping part yet. I also have a website at http://www.cropperhopper.blogpspot.com where I showcase more of my recent work. I can do custom work such as shawls, hats, sweaters, afghans, mittens, etc. I also have cards and scrapbook pages that can be custom made.
