Michigan Artisan- WoodNGoods

Well, there's no denying it: fall will be here before we know it. That means that Back-to-School, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and all sorts of holidays and occasions are going to be upon us before we know it. Some of these occasions warrant gift-giving. This year, consider giving beautiful gifts that were handmade right here in the great state of Michigan!

Periodically, I'll feature a Michigan artisan here on Yes Michigan! I hope that you'll check them out and consider them for all your gifts this year!

WoodNGoods makes amazing wood "paintings" as well as ornaments and other fun stuff. Check them out!

Come Cheer on the 3-Day Walkers!

For those of you who don't already know, this weekend is the Michigan Breast Cancer 3-Day. Around 2000 men and women will walk 60 miles over 3 days to raise funds for Susan g. Komen for the Cure. Another 500 folks have volunteered to serve as crew to meet the needs of those awesome walkers. Come on out to one of the official cheering stations to cheer them on as they walk! Or make your own cheering station along the route! If your house or place of business is on the route, consider putting out some cold water, lemonade, or just leave your hose on and out! It's going to be a warm one! Kids with squirt guns are also appreciated!

You can find the official cheering stations here.
