Anyhow, Looks like the winner of the beading book is commenter # 2, who just happens to be JoJo. Congrats and enjoy.
Today's letter is Z and I want to tell you about Zibbett. Most people have heard of Etsy which is the Grand Daddy of buying and selling handmade on line, but not too many people have heard of Zibbet, which is a younger, up and coming version of Etsy. There are many reasons to buy handmade, one being that you are supporting the livelihood of a single crafter, who makes stuff with love and care instead of lining the pockets of some sweat shop owning corporation. Another excellent reason to buy handmade is the fact that you can get some truly unique one of a kind gifts by shopping handmade.
Two of our fellow A to Z bloggers not only write extremely interesting blogs, but they are the owners of truly awsome Zibbet shops full of their gorgeous handmade creations. Sandra is the blogger behind A Writer Weaves a Tale http://sandrasfiberworks.blogspot.com/ , and her blog has made me laugh, has made me cry, but always leaves me thinking about being a better mother and a better daughter. She also owns a Zibbet shop which is chock full of beautiful handwoven items such as this lovely purple and lilac shoulder wrap.

Another A to Z blogger with an awesome blog and Zibbet Shop is Barbra from All About the Buttons. She is one of those who can effortlessly blog about any subject and her posts are always refreshing and honest and can be found here. http://allaboutthebuttons.blogspot.com/ . Barbra's Zibbet Shop is an entire craft show in itself. She is an avid crafter who can make just about anything. And make it well, too. Some of my favorite items in her shop are the fabric covered tape measures and the upcycled CD clocks, such as this one which is baseball themed.

Finally, saving the shameless self promotion for last, and the very end of A to Z blogging, here is the link to my Zibbet shop. http://www.zibbet.com/abracadebra
OK, mission accomplished, my final post all about Zibbet for the final day of A to Z blogging.
TTYL and make it a good night,
