The Stone Soup Challenge is a grassroots movement founded by artist Laura Bray. The goal of the challenge is for artists and crafters to help one another by promising to use a portion of their monthly profits to invest in a fellow artist's shop. To join us in helping artists everywhere and to read more about the challenge, please go to our Facebook page.

Remember! If we all contribute a little to the pot of Stone Soup, we will all feast.

Welcome Lollishops!

I'm pleased to announce that the online shopping venue, Lollishops, has joined our cause. Sadie Lou (the founder & leader of Lollishops) has even created a special badge for The Stone Soup Challenge for her shop members to put on their blogs.If you want to grab it, visit The Lollishop Blog.

Did you know that I send out a free monthly newsletter all about the business of arts & crafts? It's free and each month I write an article about business or marketing. In my life before crafting, I got an MBA, so I try to use it by helping other artists and crafters start successful businesses. You can see previous articles on my website at You can sign-up to receive the newsletter there or you can sign-up here on the blog-there's a badge on the right. It's just another tool you can use to overcome the economy's current challenges.

Hey, did you know we have a group on Ravelry? Elizabeth, from Sheepshape Spinning, started it. Go here to check it out. It's people like Elizabeth, who are working to spread the word about this challenge, that will bring great success to all of us. Thanks Elizabeth!
