Queensland Flood Appeal - Bloggers unite!

This blogging community never ceases to amaze me. I have truly never met such a supportive and generous bunch in my life, and in times of need, they go above and beyond. First, there was Digella's Baked Relief, and now, bloggers have started donating profits from their online stores to support those in need. The lovely Janette from My Sweet Prints started the ball rolling, by announcing that 10% of the profits from sales over the next two weeks will be donated, which is so generous. And today, the gorgeous Tina from Rubie's Place has decided to donate all profits from sales for the month of January. which is absolutely fantastic.

I thought that was such a great idea that I'm going to steal it (thanks Tina!) - for the rest of January, all profits from my Etsy shop will be donated to the flood appeal. So, if you're in the market for some unique artwork, or hand-made goodies, now is the time to dig deep and help those who so badly need it. Take a peek at just a little of what's on offer:

    SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    Is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.

    Casualidad sopla la sangre
    de alguno señor desconocido
    durante los pocos restantes
    momentos del resplandor de faroles

    que se vislumbran tras el follaje
    flameando de las obsesiónes
    igual efimero como gotas
    del cinzano de la soledad –

    En aquel tiempo me levanta
    dentro uno incidente avejentado
    que en seguida palidece
    al camouflaje de abstraccion;

    chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
    ojos significan aún; con todo
    el sueño que hube evacuado
    tu escudriñas nuevamente.

    My Spanish poetry!

    LE FRUIT DU CIEL

    Un orage nocturne illmuna maintenant l'Amazonie, franchis les Andes, envoya des jeux de cartes gigantesques et frappantes en bas à la Pampa –

    Puis: petit déjeuner à melon; café fumant !

    À la bague du cigare tu lis, étonné: GÉOGRAPHIE.

    And: reciprocity. You do me a favor promoting your blog on mine!

  8. Hi Kerri, we are a resourceful bunch when we put our minds to it. I am involved in BrisStyle's Handmade Ark Appeal to raise funds also.
    Had a great time earlier today catching up on all your news. Congratulations on the Courier Mail article! Also love your "Just Do It" attitude for 2011. I have a big list for this year too.
    Hope you have a great week. Michelle
