Every year I work with some nice people on the JREF forum to help raise money for scholarships for The Amazing Meeting. We are not affiliated with the JREF, we simply like to send some of our forum members to a conference that can be life changing’
I always have an auction, but this year decided to throw in an etsy shop. I’ve never tried this before, but I ended up with a lot of cool crafts after teaching a few classes to local students.
My favorite is the cigar box clock. Nice clean wooden cigar box that is exactly the right shape to sit on a shelf or end table. It also is a fun spot to “hide” things, and the clock faces are vintage maps or illustrations from old books.
One box features Baker Street, for the Sherlock fan.
I also have some fun frames I did with old maps (seriously with GPS maps are vintage).
All the money from the shop I am donating to the fund, which we named the Mr.Skinny Fund after one of our beloved, but now gone, forum members.
So, my teaching examples are now your treasures. Plus 100% goes to help the Mr.Skinny Fund.

Your cat’s name is Moxie! Is it named after the soda or my daughter or something else? Either way, LOVE it!
Welcome to our little blog. I don’t want to answer for Kitty but I don’t think the cat’s middle name starts with a C. 🙂
I stand corrected. Through the magic of space telephones and Facebook, Kitty has informed me that her cat, Moxie, IS named after your daughter! We are of course fans of Skeptics of Unusual Size, whether they are diminutive men like Randi, or really tall guys.
