Time to party in a very big way! Thursday's party drew over 650 thumbnails. It was an overwhelming success. I cannot tell everyone how pleased and flattered I was to have so much support for Times are Tough Thursday.
So here is the deal, I listened. Because of the response we had on Times Are Tough Thursday, I am going to change things up a bit for Modern Craftswoman Monday. With around 500 thumbnails posted last time on the first day alone, who am I to argue. So, let's get this show on the road!
***Please Read The Rules And Instructions - This Party Has Changed A Little Bit***
Really Easy Rules
******You Must Become A Follower To Participate If You Are Not One Already*****
1.) All crafters are welcome. This includes sellers and non-sellers. The more the merrier! You may link directly to your Etsy store or selling blog if you want. Many crafters work very hard to pay a few bills with the items they make. This party is an outlet for them to get a little free advertising if they want it.
2.) The items posted must have been made by you.
3.) You may enter the price of your item in the description. In fact, I encourage it! Let's see some crafters sell a few things this week. I will be allowing up to 50 characters in the description area for you to take advantage of.
4.) This is a "pay it forward" and "honor system" type of party. It's success largely depends on the number of people who attend and how much you as a participant promote it. Please link back and pass the word along. Some of you will find it hard to link back from your Etsy store. That is fine. I understand. Just try to promote the party the best you can. Here are a few ways that some of the really cool people promoted last Thursday's party. They.......
grabbed a button, tweeted it, put it on Facebook, emailed their friends, wrote a feature about it, put it on their sidebar, announced it on forums, notified their group, and lots more. However you want to promote the party is up to you. Here is a button if you want to promote it that way....
Now for the instructions......pretty easy.
1.) Scroll down past the thumbnail pictures of all the entries and click on the little blue button that says "Add your link."
2.) Copy and paste the url of the item you want to bring to the party in the url box.
3.) In the "Name" box, do not put your name there. This where you will put the description of your item. You can also input the price of your item here if you are selling it.
4.) Enter your email address. It will not be viewable to the public. It is just a part of the sign-up process.
5.) Click on "Step 2" and pick out the picture of the item you want posted. Click on it and done.
You can post up to 3 items this week. Take advantage of it!
