For me, life is about passion. Doing what you love, creating what you love, listening to your instincts and following them.
If you share this philosophy with others, then it's contagious. Don't take no for an answer, just have a plan and figure out a way. No excuses.
Go for it.

I found a great website: "Try Handmade Gallery". I've been accepted for a few submissions and also recently featured on this site. They have amazing handcrafted items and a portion of their proceeds go to an organization called Kiva to help entrepreneurs throughout the world. Good stuff in my book!
