Have you been over to the Custom Made website yet? They are doing a great job at providing three things:
1. A place for artists to show off their abilities and portfolios
2. A place for potential buyers to find a wealth of resources for hand made products, some even near where they live.
3. A referral service to connect those in category one with those in category two.
We've been working hard over there lately, updating my profile to show folks like you some of the work I have done so you can have an idea of what you might want me to make for you someday. Looking for custom anything? Check them out. Here's a link to my profile page.
