Team Meeting

Sorry if you missed it. We were in the chat room. Here is a nice looking treasury of those of us who were there. This is in my poster sketch right now. I will let you know on the Yahoo Group, when I can turn it into a treasury. Of course I'll be taking myself out. Enjoy!

Another Front Page

StudioCherie was on the front page Monday evening. This widget is an easier way to show our front page features than capturing a screen shot. Pretty cool huh?

Front Page Now

Congratulations to Cori, for making the front page this morning. Etsians really love those soft, light photos, and Cori's artwork fits so many moods. Her work really makes great front page material. If your whites are overpoweringly bright, you might consider finding a way to tone it down. A little bit of shadow seems to create the softness that gets good exposure on Etsy.

Team Meeting

Randi puts so much into our team meetings. I learn something new every time, and am always glad I attended. Last night we were introduced to 5 new team members, and got some great tips about making treasuries. Here is the link on Etsy where you can learn about treasuries and how to make them. If we all make an effort to make beautiful treasuries and include some team members mixed with others, our chances of being promoted on the front page will go up.

We also talked about fund raising for the team. Some good ideas were mentioned, and you will notice adsense here on the blog very soon.

Membership in our Yahoo Group is going to be mandatory for all team members because it facilitates communication. If you have not signed up for it, please do.

Now here is a list of shops who attended the meeting. I think the new members will make treasury making even more fun!

Craft Fair Report

Cori, Patricia, Paula, Andi, Sally, Kerry

Some of our lovely teammates met up to participate in a craft fair in Walla Walla last Friday. Paula from CutieFruity sent in this photo and the report. I have linked their names to their shops.

On March 27, six members of our team participated in the Walla Walla Artisan Fair at the Walla Walla fairgrounds. Since the fair was on a Friday only, it was pretty slow and there was plenty of time to check out one anothers wares and talk about plans we may have for our shops and such. After many team meetings online, it was fun to meet face to face at chat a little while during the show. Four of us travelled from the Tri-Cities and two came down from Pullman. All of us found out about the fair through the team. Since most of us already "knew" each other, it was very easy to introduce ourselves and get to know one another better, even if the show was a bust (I think all of us at least broke even). There were 17 vendors in all, so we had a very good representation from the team. A reporter from the UB even came and interviewed all of us about selling online vs. at a show. Some of us are misquoted, but the article does promote the team and Andi, the vice pres, did a great job of telling him about Etsy and our team. Not only can an etsy team help out with online business, but it is also beneficial locally, since the EWATeam is location based. For a few of us, this was our first show. It was a good start and a great learning experience. --Paula Taylor
