A Holiday Etsy Store for You

Buy Handmade
Hope for Jasenn

I wanted to tell you all about something very special going on right now, a wonderful person you may know, Linda Permann, started an Etsy store to raise money for her brother-in-law who is fighting stage IV kidney cancer. I'm not the only who knows how hard it is to make ends meet during the holiday season - and maybe you know firsthand how scary it is to deal with a sick family member and huge, scary hospital bills. That's why I think what she is doing is so lovely - with the help of crafters (and her own crafts) she's donating 100% of the proceeds from her store to Jasenn and his family.

So often we want to do a little something for someone else during the holiday season, but feel weird about giving to strangers or don't know where to start... this is a perfect way to give to a wonderful person and get something in return!

(Sold 12/7/08)

I donated my embroidered menorah to the store, and I would be honored if any of you purchase that or anything else from Linda's store. I would ship my embroidered piece to you, along with a few little goodies from my stash and my sincerest thanks for helping a young family this holiday! There are tons of great things in her shop, be sure to check it out!

Update: You guys are amazing! One day after this post, my menorah was purchased by Alli - thank you! There are still so many great things in the store - please visit!


  1. thanks so much for posting this! your menorah sold--yay! xoxo

  2. Thank you for that post- I will see what I can do to help. I lost my dad 23 years ago he was only 47 same age as I am right now due to kidney cancer. I will remember him and his family in my thoughts and prayers!

  3. Such a nice thing to do. Your Menorah is beautiful.

  4. I have loved this menorah embroidery since you first posted it, and I'm thrilled that it will soon be living with all of my favorite holiday decorations! I'll be posting about Hope for Jasenn - it's just one more example of how incredible the crafting community is.
