No.4!!! I focus primarily twice a week on the NEW people to Etsy, when it comes to getting word out about emerging talents and businesses in the handmade community. Lately however I have begun to receive hoards of friendly gestures coming not just from the new sellers on Etsy but also the established ones too. I love giving the new sellers opportunities to find a place to get their name out there as in the ever growing Etsy world we all know that's getting harder, but people who have been around for a long time are picking up my work and doing really nice things to give me a shout out too. So for them (newbies too) Wednesdays are days where I want to share my gratitude and to also give them a shout out too, so their kind gestures are returned in the same way :)
TREASURIES Ok... Given up on trying to capture the treasury page image! I figured it would be more credible to the seller that creates these treasuries to have a link to an item in their store, like I did last week as in the long run I reckon a backlink to their shops would be more beneficial to their web ratings than a backlink to their treasury which disappears after only a few days! So today for treasuries that I have spotted or been told about over the past week, I would like to thank Etsy sellers IrinaPhotography and TrudieDavies for featuring me as a main in two lovely and colourful treasuries with 11 other fab sellers. No pictures I'm afraid of the treasuries themselves like I've mentioned but I want to encourage anyone reading to please visit the stores of these sellers either by clicking on their shop names mentioned already, or checking out my 2 favourite items out of each store! The top picture is a beautiful photograph depicting a natural rainbow bridge! I love it! Stunning, so you can check out the print itself by clicking the picture. And for TrudieDavies' lil Birdy studs. How cute are these??? There is a tonne of gorgeous silver jewelry, individually designed and made from recycled silver in her store. Definitely worth visiting as personally I am in awe each time I take a peek! Thanks again guys for featuring my work.
BLOG FEATURE I have a few of these to mention today actually. PipeandPepperPrints I think was the first to mention my shop in their blog after I included them in both Monday Magic and the corresponding treasury I now create weekly for the Monday posse. I thought I'd be nice to mention them again in thanks as I am grateful they even considered me for their blog regardless of featuring them beforehand, and I do LOVE their photography :) On the left I have included a linked picture to their print known as 010. It's beautiful and spring fresh! and also please visit PipeandPepperPrints' Blog, and show them some love :) Similarly seller BlondesBackyard also featured me in their blog in the same way which I am very greatful for. The blue mushroom buttons won my heart for Monday Magic but today I want to show off their cute little reversable pincushions on the left which are just one of many sweet and bright crafty project things in their store. You can visit their blog here. Lastly I wanted to offer thanks to PaintSlinging for popping me into their blog as a Guest Artist which was the first time I think that terminology has been used for me on any feature I've been in before so I was pretty chuffed about that one :) They regularly post guest artist features for painters, photographers and illustrators so check out PaintSlinging's blog to find out more and request to be a part of it! I have included an original and amazing painting of a fish from their store which you can click and visit. ORIGINAL! Can't get better than that :) Check out their other original paintings... Fab!
So That's it I think for this week. I hope I havent left anyone out... if I have I'll pop you into next weeks feature :)
