Who are the One A Day Challengers?

I've featured one of the One A Day Challengers, but what is the whole group. Others have blogged about us as well, including one of my previous posts, but here's my current take...

Started on April 15 by Chrissy of Bittersweets, the basic premise is to make an item and list it every day. The original goal was to do this for one month, but, hey, we bonded and couldn't let go. So on we go. Life does get in the way, so the rules are not strict. Sometimes we can list every day, and sometimes we can't, but we all just do the best we can.

I'll expand on some of these characteristics in future posts, but here's a profile of us:
There are approximately 20 of us, and of those, there are 15 jewelry makers, 3 who knit or crochet, 3 who sew, 1 paper artist, 1 graphic designer, 1 bath and body guru, and 2 who sell vintage. You can see those numbers don't add up to 20... lots of us are multi-talented and at least 4 of us have more than one shop.

Lolabear has been selling on etsy the longest. She joined on January 22, 2006. Devancarol is the newest member, joining on March 28, 2008.

We have 2 Canadians, 2 Aussies, and represent 14 different states, clustered in the northeast, the southeast, the midwest, and 2 western states. And one day, we'd love to all get together and meet in person!

That's enough to digest for now. But rest assured, we are all kindred spirits, and in some weird, crazy way, in a short time, we've become good friends.
