Lost In the Crowd BNR

Since the Lost in the Crowd Team has flooded Etsy with treasuries, the next step is a Buy and Replace treasury! You pick a featured shop, purchase ANY item from that shop, and then you pick one of your items to be featured in the spot taken by the shop from whom you made a purchase. Let's hope some of these new shops get the attention they deserve!



If you wanted to purchase from PasqueFlower, I regret to inform you that you are too late. I've had my eye on those butterfly knot dresses for awhile! I told my daughter it was going to be her new special princess dress for when she's all potty trained. She's so excited! Check out her dresses though; they are so cute!

Thanks to SmiLe aGain Creations for hosting this BNR. My Flower Magnets and Owl Labels are featured, yay!

Lost In the Crowd Keeps 'Em Coming!

Yay for one of the hardest working etsy teams ever! Here are two more lovely treasuries featuring some of the undiscovered shops on etsy:



Special thanks to KoJoZo for featuring my Starburst Gift Set!



Thanks to artsyEVE for featuring my Baby Owl Magnet Set!

Bargain Bin Sale!

Since I've been discussing all of the great teams on Etsy, I thought that I would also introduce the Bargain Bin Team. As often as possible we get together and discount various items by 30-50% and promote together. Here's a team treasury listing our most recent promotion. Great items on sale, great team to follow to find great discounts!



Special thanks to SmiLe aGain Creations for featuring my Flower Magnets!

Insane on Etsy

Special thanks to curator extradionare Vintage Clothing Store for featuring my Collage Mint Tin in her latest treasury. What an honor to be included among so many awesome items!



Great items from these shops, many of them from the Etsy Insane Team. What a great collection!

Pretty in Pink

So much pretty here on Mother's Day! As curators Maria and Nancy (from ShandrasLinens) state, "Pink personifies happiness; fairy princesses, a baby's cheek, lipstick, cupcake frosting, sprinkles on a strawberry ice cream cone, rosebuds, ribbons, bubbles floating like jewels through the air, a spectacular sunrise or sunset , jewelry and femininity. here's to being Pretty in Pink.....Enjoy!" Wonderfully put, and Happy Mother's Day!



Special Thanks to Maria and Nancy for featuring my Polka Dot Gift Set.

Show Some Love for "Lost in the Crowd!"

This is a hard working team of Etsy shops that are trying to distinguish themselves among the plethora of wonderful handmade shops. Check out some of these featured items; amazing work!



Special thanks to FrebaPottery for featuring my Daisy Magnet Gift Set :-)

Featured in "Bright and Sunny"

Yet another great treasury from the "Lost in the Crowd" Etsy team. Such a great collection of new sellers!



Special thanks to Sweet Blue Jay Fly for including my Glass Magnets!

Etsy Social Media Marketing Hype Team

This is a treasury featuring postings from the Etsy Social Media Marketing Hype Team. The idea is we all get together and share items from our shop that we want to promote, and once a week we all promote each others items on our respective social networks in order to reach a bigger network. Great idea! Anyway, I made a treasury featuring items from the team. I especially love the toddler accessories (I wonder why...)

Lost in the Crowd Team

My new Etsy shop, Moon Magnets, has been a little slow to get off the ground. While it is great to know that there are so many people out there turning to handmade goods, it can be a little frustrating trying to get your shop to stand out. So I joined a team called "Lost in the Crowd" for new shops that have less than 10 sales in search of tips and advice and support. It's been great so far. Here are two of our team treasuries...I guess I know that my Owl Pebble Magnet Gift Set is a hit :-) Look at some of the amazing new shops on Etsy!

Special thanks to curators ByTheBayBobbles and StarflyCreations

Featured in "Sunny"

These BNR treasuries are a good way to increase sales if your shop is new and you want to build it up some. If you buy any item from one of the featured shops, your item gets featured in the next treasury. I bought a cute pack of thank you cards from Knock Out Punches last night, and made a sale this morning when my shop was featured. I just discovered these. Love it!



Oh yeah, check out my return address labels, bright and sunny.
