It's time! Last week was pretty fabulous. Not only did we have over 500 thumbnails posted, we had reports of sales going on in a lot of the stores out there. It was fantastic to hear some of the success stories from some of you, that were due to the party.
This week I have invited everyone to join in that wants to. Sellers and Non-Sellers alike are all welcome. Let's all work together to make this party a huge success!
I have also sent out invitations to many of the Etsy Store Owners who are participating in the Christmas In July event. The CIJ event is almost over and hopefully this party will give their stores an extra little push, like it did for a lot of you last week.
For those of you who have not been here before....Welcome! We love that you have joined us, for this fun way to create some links, traffic, followers, hearts, and sales.
****Please Read The Rules And Instructions Before You Enter****
Really Easy Rules
1.) You must be a follower of this blog to participate if you are not one already.
2.) Everyone is welcome to participate. Both sellers and non-sellers may join in the fun.
3.) For the most part, any item that you made yourself, may be entered into the party.
4.) Some of you out there are in need of a big push this month, so I am allowing everyone to post up to 5 items this week. We could all use some extra traffic, so let's pull out all the stops. Post your best 5!
5.) Important.....This party,... the traffic it brings,... the links it makes,... and the store sales it adds,... depends almost entirely on how well the participants spread the word and promote it. Please do whatever you can to make it a success. Link to it. Grab a button. Write a feature post about it. Announce it in a forum. Tell your Etsy team. Whatever you want. Just get the word out there.
6.) Please click on a few of the thumbnails posted. Visit some of the other stores and blogs. Leave comments and convos when you are there. Become a follower of some blogs and leave a few hearts in some Etsy Stores. You will be amazed at how much more traffic and activity your store and blog will experience if you "pay it forward" and do this. I guarantee it will help you.

Okay...Here are the actual instructions for entering your items into the party.
1.) Scroll down past all the thumbnail pics that were entered before you. Find the little blue button that says... "Add your link". It has a little frog face on it. Click on it.
2.) Copy and paste the URL of the item you want to to bring to the party. For bloggers it will be the URL of the post.
3.) "Name"....This is not for your name. It is for the name and description of your item. You can use up to 50 characters and can even include the price if you want.
4.) Enter your email address. It will not be visible to the public. No worries.
5.) Click "Next" and pick out your picture of the item.
