Our team will be launching a series of team on-line workshops and small critique sessions in the upcoming weeks. We all need to be checking the calendar in our Yahoo Groups group for the details. Meanwhile, I wanted to congratulate our own Gail of DigitalExpressions on her becoming a member and mentor in the Sellers Assisting Sellers (SASsy) team.
You will find Gail listed as an expert in using PowerPoint. She says, "I use PowerPoint and a couple of other programs for my graphics. I have been a power user of the program since before I retired we used it for presentations and meetings at Boeing."
Congratulations Gail! The full listing of SASsy experts can be found in this forum post on the Etsy Forums. I have found them to be extremely helpful, and we all know Gail to be a real gem.

I think we will all be learning a lot in the coming months from Andi. Just look at the product photography in her shop. This is what I call eye-hand coordination. She has got the eye to know great looking graphics, and the hands to make it come to life. Here are just a few of my favorites from her shop. bliss card
Q. What inspires you to make your cards and albums?
A. My inspiration comes from everywhere! Most of the time I get inspired by all the great new products coming out all the time, but I often look through magazines and the web for inspiration. There are thousands of awesome blogs that provide great inspiration, but I also look at things like well designed ads for color inspiration.
dinosaur tracks card Q. Do you find yourself wondering about the person who will give or receive the card?
A. I really like seeing the kinds of people who buy my cards. It always surprises me that there isn't just one type of person who buys handmade. So many different kinds of people are interested for so many different reasons. It's great to see the handmade movement getting so much attention.
