When I started my Etsy shop it was the result of peer pressure. Now I have 30+ items in my shop I belong to 12 teams and it has become a bigger addiction than facebook was.

Three of the teams I joined recently are designed to help promote my Etsy shop. For one of the teams I must create 20-40 promotional items which will be sent out as feebies when people sell things. We each do that to help promote each other. Another team is for people who offer coupon codes. They created a treasury that features members work and they are having a big sale right now. Every shop has a coupon. The third team are people with active blogs and we help each other by mentioning each other's shops on facebook and blogs.

I am not sure how much any of this is helping sales but it has added excitement to the whole process and I am meeting some really nice people and viewing some really beautiful creations. I believe it has expanded my ideas about what to expect to see on Etsy. These people are true artists.

Check out some of these links and see for yourself:

I guess I better get back to beading and knitting those 40 keychains for the promotion team.
Have a Great Mother's Day- I will be eating a fantastic homecooked meal at my son Gardner ad DIL Kristen's house.
