The announcement e-mail said Saturday to Saturday.  Winner receives a custom banner (I really like my banner the way it is) and 20% off Lottie's Trinkets (I really don't wear jewelry).  But best of all the photo is featured for next week.

This piece is in my Etsy shop, and my stats there show that it's been viewed through that website (madeformebyoakley.com) 46 times.  Considering I had never heard of the site, seems like it's good advertisement for both the site and the artist.

Then again, I'm back to the artist-advertising-to-another-artist quandary.  Yes, if another artist wants to buy something they will typically look to another artist.  But as artists, generally speaking, we're more interested in selling than in buying.  So, having said that, I'd really rather not advertise to other artists but rather to shoppers. 

And if I knew how to market to THEM -- well, I'd be rich!

Still -- I feel very touched and honored to have been loved by so many . . . seriously teary eyed. . .

I think it doesn't necessarily hurt to advertise to other artists, as we don't all create in the same media.  If I had any money to spend and needed a gift, I would definitely look to other artists who do something I can't if it's appropriate for the person I'm buying for.  So everyone is potentially a customer, I guess, and all exposure is good.

I understand what you are saying, but remember that everyone doesn't work in every media.  I buy soap from Larissa (both for me and for gifts) as well as journals from BlueHighways.  I also own quite a bit of jewelry from other jewelry artists that work in different styles than me.  Would I buy chainmaille?  Probably not because I can make most weaves for less than buying the piece, but I do often buy from other artists.

Voted again, but sorry not for you. I realized another one of our members is in there too, so I needed to spread the love. But you are way out in front.
