Surprise Post!

August 31, 2010

Hello friends! I am away all week but I thought I’d pop in to leave you with a few links to enjoy and to announce that on Friday, September 3rd I will have two special guests visiting who will share 10 tips on how bloggers and crafters online can build community and be helpful to one another. You have to wait until Friday to see who they are… However, you will be invited to get involved in the conversation and leave your tips as well so remember to pop in on Friday to read this helpful post for bloggers and crafters everywhere.

Surprise Post!(please click on image for more on the triangle craze!)

Until Friday…

Enter the Olioboard contest, it ends on September 13th but there are only a few entries and some nice prizes to be won so give it a go! I just found out today that I’ll be on the panel of judges to choose from the winning entries. So enter! Enter! Enter!

Do you miss seeing Etsy Take Five Tuesday today? Don’t worry, I wrote about a triangle trend  just for you with links to over 20 sellers so you now have 4x the normal take five serving! Here’s the link, I hope that you enjoy my finds!

Four recent Etsy purchases that I made and love!

See you on Friday!
