New way to promote!!!

Arlissa of Not So Baby has suggested a wonderful new way to promote your shop.  Check it out!!

"Christmas, Thanksgiving and other holidays are coming and shoppers are getting ready! If you'd like to promote your shop more, being seen in treasuries is a great and free way to do so...it's even possible the treasury you're featured in could be on the front page of Etsy.com! Wow, imagine how many views and favorite you would have then?!

We've started a new game to help promote whoever wants to play. It's a treasury game and the details can be seen at: www.etsy.com/teams/10238/etsy-mommies/discuss/11246688/page/1/

If you like promoting your shop, making treasuries, or are willing to try something new, then you should sign up! :)

Sign up soon, only the first 15 players to join in get to play and be promoted! If everyone likes this game, we'll continue on a weekly basis."

For a good laugh...

So, my post last month was about Pinterest and some rules you might like to know when taking advantage of the some of the wonderful ideas there.

As I pin things and dream about doing them I often find myself terrified to try it because they often turn out to be laughable and absolutely nothing like what I imagined.  This happens often.

I happened upon this other blog which has people write in and have the blogger post their
pinterest "failures."  They do it in good fun and to show others that we all fail sometimes.

I think I sat and laughed for a good hour.  It is a real confidence booster to know that most people aren't Martha Stewart and things don't always go as you planned.

For a good laugh and a smile today, check it out!  Remember to keep your chin up and you can do it!
