You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

I'm sure some of you super crafters, knitters, and seamstresses already know of this site, but I just found it recently. Etsy. It's a site where crafters sell their handmade products. In toys alone today there were over 500 pages. A lot of the prices seem very reasonable. I'm sure some of these crafters use chinese products in their crafts, but at least it's handmade and not mass produced.

Just thought I would pass this along for anyone interested.

Great site
I'm going to make a huge effort not to buy so much stuff from China, especially toys, from here on out.
