The Maker’s Grant

3 Apr

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 11.53.55 AMThe best online marketplace for handmade, Etsy, partnered up with an innovative social network, Ten Thousand Coffees, to graciously award a Maker $5,000 to fund their creative business, product, or idea. I was beyond giddy this week when I found out that Nature’s My Friend was short-listed into the top 20 for the Maker’s Grant! If I was lucky enough to win, this money would help me finally outfit the studio with an etching press! All I need now to make this dream a reality, is a little help from you my friends. I need you to vote for my project; all you need is an e-mail address or a facebook account and you only need to vote once.



Currently I’m in 3rd place but I need YOUR VOTE to make it to #1!!! VOTING ENDS APRIL 6TH SO PLEASE VOTE NOW!
