I was out with friends last night and the conversation ultimately turned, as it has for the past few days, to the devastation in Japan. My heart goes out to those who have lost family members, their homes and businesses and treasured possessions. My thoughts are with the small group of technicians who are working tirelessly to contain the nuclear reactors. My hope is that they will continue to locate survivors amongst the rubble.

After any disaster of this magnitude, I am always amazed at the outpouring of support from around the world. Finding any way to help, some seriously talented artists, designers and crafters have created products, of which sales will go to relief efforts in Japan. Here are just a few that I found...
