Hat Trick

Front page, Storque Article, Gift Guide! Congratulations, Randi. Your caffeine molecule coffee sleeves have won the hat trick of Etsy exposure. Soon you will be embroidering those molecules in your sleep. Visit the Geek Chic gift guide to see Randi's handiwork. I am doing cartwheels in my brain I am so excited for you (or maybe that's the caffeine this morning) but I am really, really happy for you. If you click on the Storque article link, you can read about how well Randi did in the voter and you can nominate your favorites for Americana Decor. If you read the comments, you will see that Randi has nominated some of you already.

Weekend Deals Gift Guide

Pillow cover by Slidesideways
Etsy is really getting creative about speading the love. Be on the look out in the Storque for the links to forum discussions from which they choose items to feature. While there are just a few items featured in the actual Storque article about Fathers Day deals and YART sale deals, they also link to special limited time gift guides. There are several of us in the Fathers Day sale gift guide - Slidesideways, Ragnazidnar, and StudioCherie. I have noticed that Etsy has been expanding the yartfreeship gift guide over the past couple of days, so there may still be time to get in on that one too. Here is the link again to the Storque article that explains how to participate in this week ends special gift guides.
Randi is in the top 4 for the cozy vote. If you have not yet voted, please click on the link in the previous blog post and help her win!

Etsy is Spreading the Love

Looks like the Etsy voter in the Storque is going to be a weekly event. This week, we get to vote on our favorite "cozies." I have been wanting to see Randi's caffeine molecule coffee cozy in the Geek Chic gift guide for a long time, now it looks like she's got a shot at it. If you have not voted yet, go to this link and click on the voting link from there. As a team, let's get active in nominating one another for these opportunities weekly. Next weeks voter is going to be Birthday cards. Natalie has very sweetly made some nominations from the team. If you have a birthday card that needs to be nominated, feel free to send a convo with the link to your item to studiocherie, and I will nominate you. When it comes out, I will pop back on here to post all of the team contenders for the best birthday card vote. Good luck! VintageDresser and StudioCherie are also in the vote this week, but it looks like Randi is the one who really has a good chance of winning, so lets team up and make it happen.

Great opportunity for traffic to your shop

It's hard for a lot of us to pass by a yard sale without stopping to see if there is some treasure there we just have to have. Why should the online world be any different? Starting next Wednesday, June 10th and running through Sunday the 14th, Etsy is having a Yart sale. Read this article to find out how to participate. It is really easy and I think it will bring huge traffic to your shop, so don't miss out.
