The items are coming in...

Just a little post this week to let you know that the collective shop will be in full effect very soon. I already have 4 items in my Inbox, waiting for me to list them. And, if I'm not mistaken, there is another one on it's way.

I'm getting very excited at the thought of having all sorts of handcrafted talent sharing the pro-peace message gathered in one shop! It's gonna be so cool!

Anyhow, I better stop blogging about it and get to work on making it a reality, huh? LOL

Coming soon - a collective shop

Behind the scenes, we are making progress in the evolution of the Turn Peace Around movement and the Zibbet shop.

In case you didn't know, the Zibbet shop, as it currently stands, features items I (Sunfire) have created - hemp jewelry, painted tote bags and various woodburned items. But in the last few months, I've been thinking about expanding. Why limit this cause to the few things I know how to do? Why not invite other crafters to spread this message through their handiwork?

So I did.

I put out an open call to some of the folks I know on Zibbet and the people following the Facebook page, asking for interested people to hash out some details, about how to make the collective shop work for everyone. We've been working on it for a couple weeks now, and soon I will have something to list in the Zibbet shop that isn't my own! I'm so excited!

If you are a fellow crafter and want to get in on this, visit the Facebook group, request to join, then check out the Documents for information on how this will work. Would love to hear from you!

An article I wanted to share

Kerri introduced me to her site, Peace Rising, and I thought I was going to faint! You mean it's not a lost cause? You mean other people have reasons for flipping the peace sign, too? I was so excited! (Even more so when she ordered some things from the Zibbet shop!)

At the bottom of her Peace Rising page, Kerri shares some links to other folks that also believe in 'correcting' our current peace sign. One of those pages is a blog post at, entitled "The correct way to display the peace sign". It comes complete with pictures and more explanations of using the peace sign in a positive and powerful way. That blog post can be found here.

It's a short read that really has an impact. It certainly explains things in another way, things I might not have thought of, and ways of sharing the history of the peace sign that I never knew of. I suggest you take a couple minutes and check it out.

Please, if you ever see anyone anywhere flipping peace signs, let me know! I would love to have a huge collection of links to people that are turning peace around!
