Link Party Time! - Modern Craftswoman Monday #12

Hello everyone! It is time for another Modern Craftswoman Monday Link Party.

Last Monday's party had 363 items posted. Thursday's party hit a whopping 500+. But here is the really neat thing about all this activity.......Etsy Store Owners are reporting sales!....and.... Bloggers are reporting an increase in followers! And guess what.........My parties are still free to everyone. And, I still allow sellers to participate and post their store items for free.

There has been quite a bit of confusion about why I do this for everyone. It is just my way of "paying it forward" to some pretty hard working craftspeople.

Here are the really easy rules for this party.......


1.) ******You Must Become A Follower Of This Blog To Enter, If You Are Not One Already****


2.) All crafters are welcome. I love every single one of you. This includes sellers and non-sellers. The more, the merrier!

3.) The items posted must have been made by you.

4.) You may enter the price of your item, if it is for sale. Some of you are reporting sales in your stores beacuse of this party. Let's keep up the good work!

5.) This is a "pay it forward" and free party. It's success depends on how much you as a participant promote it. Please link back and pass the word along. If you can't link back, invite a few people to attend. FB it, Tweet it, feature it, post it in a forum, whatever you can do is fine.

6.) One more thing.....I would like to see everyone work together and visit a few of each others stores and blogs when possible. Please make it a point to leave comments as you visit.


Here is a button you can grab if you want to promote the party that way...

Instructions For Actually Entering....It's Easy!

1.) Scroll down past the thumbnail pictures of the items that were posted ahead of you. Click on the little blue button with the frog on it 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 provided.

3.) In the "Name" box, do not put your name there. This is where you will put the description of your item. You can put the item price there too, if you want.

4.) Enter your email address. It will not be viewable to the public.

5.) Click on "Step 2" and pick out the picture of the item you want posted. Click on it and you are done.

That is all there is to it.
You can post up to 3 items this week.
Take advantage of it.

Also, I have 2 giveaways going on right now for some pretty wonderful jewelry. Click Here for details on the Mermaid Tresure Pendant and Click Here for details on the Citrine and Sterling Silver Earrings.

It's Free to enter both giveaways!
