Etsy Team Spirit Award

Team Spirit Award!
This week's spirit award goes to the amazing Createability Team. This group is composed of artists with disabilities, as well as caregivers for disabled people, who use Etsy to connect with others. Their mission is "to take back control of the terms used around our various conditions and bring knowledge and awareness to those around us." Members are very motivated and support one other emotinally and by promoting each others' shops. This team has been around since '08 and continues to be an inspiration to the Etsy Teams program. Keep up with Createability on theirblog or browse the photos in their Flickr group

This announcement came on Monday, December 12, 2011. I was informed today, Friday December 16, 2011 that we will be receiving a trophy from Etsy for this honor. 

I would like the Thank everyone on Createability Team for making this an Award Winning Team and Welcome to All of our new members. I will post photos of the trophy as soon as it arrives.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Or whatever Holiday you celebrate at this time of year! May 2012 be even better for us all!

Update: On February 4, 2011 Our trophy arrived with a handwritten note on pretty handmade stationary.

Do you know that the rulings of the Federal Trade Commission applies to you? Did you know that if you can’t ship within the promised time (or within 30 days if you made no promise), you must notify the customer of the delay, provide a revised shipment date and explain his right to cancel
and get a full and prompt refund.

Also, you have the right to cancel orders that you can’t fill in a timely manner, but you must promptly notify the customer of your decision and make a prompt refund.
