Etsy for Autism

Some of you all remember me writing about Betty Refour and her sister Rose who is an autistic adult. Well, I recently heard from Betty that there is a new blog(Etsy for Autism) that is being written by a team of artists who support and encourage Autism Awareness. I love to buy handmade items and I think it's wonderful to know that there are people out there who are using their talents to draw attention to things like autism, organ donation, etc. So head on over there to see some really beautiful art...and be inspired by these kind souls!

This is a piece created by Rose. Betty says that Rose has always been artistic and that she loves to go shopping immediately after she sells one of her masterpieces! Click on the artwork to go to the Etsy shop...
