This is my wife's art site -- https://www.jacquelinebelljohnson.com/ (need to cut/paste the link)

She is having a studio sale (click on the studio sale link) and has a lot of art pieces (mostly postcard size hand-drawn or printed art images but also some ceramics, sculpture, and printed fabrics).

Some samples of the work available:

fallingblox: Any knitting Farkers out there (FarKnitters?) ... anyway, I'm Alasdair from Fallingblox Designs. I teach workshops and write patterns for all levels of double-knitting experience. You can find my stuff online at https://double-knitting.com/. If you don't know, double-knitting is a method of knitting that has no wrong side. I have been working for the past 15+ years to push the boundaries of what is possible with this technique, and currently am among a handful of people riding the bleeding edge of knitting innovation.

Some highlights follow. Nota Bene: I don't sell the finished objects (you couldn't afford it -- and if you can, get in touch), I just sell the books/patterns and instructions for making them yourself. Much more affordable, and more fun!

Only have an Etsy shop right now, and is still being stocked, but there's a decent amount of starting items :)

I find a TON of 4-5-6 leaf clovers every year, so started making resin jewelry pieces with them.  Lots of trial and error, but so far I like this method the best.  Keychains and a couple other colors still need to be photographed and listed. Willing to attempt custom color requests if I have it in my collection.

kimwim: A cthulhu baby quilt, anyone?


got one

my aunt is rather hard core with quilting and asked what I wanted. I said either a Warhol style Marilyn Monroe or Cthulhu. I think she is working out the Warhol thing, pattern-wise,

toraque: For five years running, a crack team of editors have published an annual Fark Fiction Anthology, filled with submissions from your fellow posters here on Fark! And best of all, all proceeds from the sales of these anthologies go to support St. Jude Children's Cancer Research Hospital, so you can read what Farkers have to say while supporting a good cause!

The previous years' editions are available on Amazon (well worth the money- we have some talented writers here on FARK), but this year's anthology is still being final proofed prior to publication. I have them all (and bought several copies to send to inflict upon friends and family. I re-read them often.

2016: https://www.amazon.com/Heart-Farkness-2016-Fiction-Anthology-ebook/dp/B01I71JI0Q/

2017: https://www.amazon.com/Through-Scanner-Farkly-Fiction-Anthology-ebook/dp/B07467ND6J/

2018:  https://www.amazon.com/Everybody-Panic-2018-Fiction-Anthology-ebook/dp/B07JBB71SB/

2019: https://www.amazon.com/Oh-No-Not-Again-Anthology-ebook/dp/B082QPL7NV/

2020: https://www.amazon.com/Fark-Time-Covid-Fiction-Anthology-ebook/dp/B08QDRPW7M/

I think the Kindle Unlimited edition is free, but the regular Kindle edition and dead-tree copies have a cost involved. None of the Farkers involved (authors or editors) get any of the money. All proceeds go to Saint Jude's Children's Hospital, but they still won't let us say so on the actual publication.

Note: the links to Amazon may be a bit wonky. Go to Amazon books and search for any of the titles, and the rest should pop up as "people also read ..." down below.

I'm a little late to the party this time, but I make hand-cut coin jewelry as necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and more. My website is :

Coin Operated Jewelry

It has a lot of my coins on there, but not everything so if there's a country or design you're looking for, just shoot me an email (also on my site) and I'm happy to do custom orders.

Some samples are:

Puzzles (Usually in 9- 12- or 15-pieces, but also customizable):

Also, I'm not a big fan of Instagram or social media in general, but a sad truth of selling online is you need an online presence, so if you're not in the market for jewelry but still wanna throw some support my way, please follow along @coinoperatedjewelry on Instagram and leave a comment once in awhile. It actually does help quite a bit.

Thanks and happy holidays!

Unlike the many many talented Farkers here, the things I make are mostly for home use or for friends (knitted baby blankets and the like). However, I AM a small business owner. I have a travel agency. There's only two of us working this thing, and now that travel is actually coming back, we're hoping that firing up the business after 15 months of dormancy will be a good idea.

If you're looking to travel and would like to have somebody either guide you through the booking process or advocate for you in case something goes wrong, please consider a travel agent (even if it's not me, though I hope it will be).

I can be reached at travelbug at amaretravel doot coom.

Since everyone else is posting photos, here's a photo of me and my colleague from our recent sailing on Virgin Voyages' Scarlet Lady. We were on for Hallowe'en, and dressed as the Scarlet Lady (blonde mermaid with a red tail who's painted on the side of the ship) and Sir Richard Branson (though I looked more like Michael McDonald). The crew all recognised me and were calling me 'Boss' and 'Sir' all night, but my own mother didn't recognise me when I sent her the photo.

Hi, everyone. My wife's Etsy store is The Smiling Turtle.

She designs jewelry and stitch markers, using fair trade materials wherever possible.

Some of her items have a coffee theme, because who doesn't love coffee (apart from me - sometimes I'm amazed that wasn't a dealbreaker)?

She also has a line of spoon-themed items to raise awareness for people with chronic illness.

She has both budget and higher-end items, and she does take custom orders.

Right now, she is having a 15% off sale on everything, with free shipping anywhere in the continental US on orders over $35.

As some of you may know, our lives have been upended by me developing long COVID, so we could really use the support, plus (not that I'm biased!) her stuff is just gorgeous.

Feel free to contact her via her store if you have questions. Thanks!

KoalaFace: Sugar Bombs by Cara I make tea bombs, cocoa bombs, chocolates, candies, and other  custom confections, as well as custom tea blends.
We use only premium ingredients, including Callebaut Belgian chocolate (no candy melts or almond bark), organic vegan pure cane sugar, and all organic tea ingredients. We have been featured on In The Know, MSNBC, and Buzzfeed.com as the #1 choice for unique Mother's Day gifts 2021.

Everything is available for shipping via my Etsy shop. I am in the process of adding some more holiday items, including gift box/gift tin options for tea samplers, tea bombs, peppermint bark, and edible cookie shots as well as some new flavors of cocoa bombs. I will also be offering pre-order options for later shipping dates to ensure fresh products for you! [Fark user image 425x318][Fark user image 425x566][Fark user image 425x318]

I make things out of wood - mostly custom beer tap handles.

(these are neat - your title, your author, your publishing house, your design. They obviously don't have to be tap handles, but can be book ends, anniversary presents, etc.)

Happy to discuss projects even if we don't move forward.


I'm definitely going to need some tap handles sometime in the next year or so once I finish the basement bar, and these are epic.

I'm not talented at all in terms of arts or crafts or creativity. I'm too technically minded.  However, I know many farkers are writers, and what better gift for a writer than a custom pen? I'll shill for my cousin's business here, lol.

Instead of my own stuff, I am posting the URL for Street Health, that has a mobile health bus and other stuff.

Services - Street Health

Ontario Farkers - This is a moibile clinic service for homeless (and almost-homeless) people. With hospitals being overloaded and Omicron and flu season about to jam-up clinic waiting rooms, Street Health should be one of the more useful solutions to the ongoing pandemic.

They probably ahve a lot of overhead costs, like gas, insurance, etc., but it is definitely a way to reduce waiting room times in Ontario cities. I think if we can get enough investment, cities could use the model for permanent mobile clinics.

Yay! Thank you SquareBear73!
How's the tap handle doing? I can't tell you how many times I just giggled while carving that one - so incredibly cute! I am always happy to receive pictures of my handles in their new homes, if you have the opportunity.

And don't forget, it has free health care for life - if it gets a ding, send it over and I will clean it back up, good as new. You pay shipping to me, but that's it.
