Go Bold

30 Jan

You can tell by my hair that I don’t like to be subtle in my appearance. This sometimes applies to the jewelry I wear as well. I like all kinds of jewelry, but occasionally, I want something that makes a statement. Fortunately, if you feel the same way, there are many artists out there that create such pieces. Prepare to be noticed!

Art for a Cause

19 Sep

Many times, art is more than just something made to look pretty. It can be an expression and reflection of the artist, created to send a message, or made to help a cause the artist is passionate about. Mom’s Basement has it’s own donation shop, and I’ve found many generous artists on Etsy and DeviantART creating items for selfless causes. Not only do they offer awesome, geeky art for purchase, but they help you feel good about yourself at the same time.

Last year, Mom’s Basement raised $150 for Child’s Play, a gaming industry charity devoted to providing consoles, games, books, toys and other entertainment to hospitalized children. The Mom’s Basement Charity store on Etsy is open for the holiday season once again and accepts dollar donations as well as offering awesome geek merchandise for charity.  It’s our hope to raise more money this year!  If you are interested in donating your handmade geeky items, check out this thread on the Mom’s Basement team.

Basement dweller SliceofOrange makes buttons and magnets featuring your favorite video game and anime characters. Also available are adorable cat pins in different breeds – the total price of each is donated to Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue in Toronto, ON. Visit SliceofOrange to see all the cute kitties available.
