Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Dirtroad Team - Shawz and From Victory Road

Welcome to leap day of leap year! What will you do with your extra day? I will be doing the same old thing! Take a minute and visit with the two wonderful shops from the Dirtroad Team. The first shop is Shawz where Shawn learned how to sew as a little girl making dolls with her grandmother. Her grandmother is now 98 and still going, must be the sewing! Shawn learned how to quilt in 1999 and this has now turned into a nice little business for her. Shawn loves colors and her shop is filled with bright colors. You will find quilted pillows, tooth fairy pillows, cup cozy and crayon bags. The crayon bag comes in a small and large size and would be a great addition to a Easter Basket. Everyone loves to color and crayon to go will help keep a child busy while you are on the go. Shawn does do some custom orders, but please remember she has a small daughter and a new baby so leave enough time to get the order done. Shawn comes to us from a small town in Tennessee. The next shop comes from Kansas, called From Victory Road. Don and Kayann have their Etsy shop filled with repurposed items. They make refillable journals, ACEO cards and more. You will also find refills for the journals. Check out the hand bags that have been hand painted, made from quilts, or the one made from fussed plastic bags. The robot lamp made from lamp parts is so so cute. This is the shop for very unique one of kind items. If you have someone who is hard to shop for this is the shop for you, they have something for everyone. If you live in a small town this team is for you. We are open to all forms of art and here to help and support each other selling on Etsy. Stop over and check out the members on the team page and then come join in on the fun!
