Recently I have become passionate about supporting local business, agriculture and artisans. Let's be honest, Michigan has gotten a bad rap lately. All you ever hear about is our economy problems, our higher than average unemployment and auto industry bailouts, but there is so much good stuff here in Michigan! I intend to find the good stuff and bring it to you. Together we can help Michigan thrive once again!

I'll start by letting everyone know about a new group of artisans on Etsy. There's a team called the Michigan Trolls (full disclosure-I'm a member). If you want to see our products, just head on over and search "Michigan Trolls". The items are beautiful and varied. I'm sure you will find something to love!

I Took The Handmade Pledge!


  1. Wonderful idea to not only promote Michigan, but to advertise to others to promote Michigan!! Glad to be a member of that team~

  2. Great way to support Michigan! This team is going to be great.
