General Discussion / I Need Your Help!
« on: August 06, 2018, 05:58:32 PM »
I need your help. Years ago, I wrote a novel. I test marketed it at my own expense, and my test market seemed to agree that it was a good book. I tried to sell a publisher on it for the better part of two years with no success. At that point, I just put it away.

But I've decided that it needs to be published, and so I have. It's available for all kinds of different e-formats on Smashwords (goo.gl/j2H7kc) and in print on Lulu (goo.gl/UkJt4Z).

I am NOT asking you to buy it (unless you read the description and think it might be interesting to you!). What I am asking that you share this and ask your friends to share it as well.

Thanks so very much for your help!

Destash / Fur

I have this nice piece of tan fur (rayon blend) that's better than a yard and a half.  I bought it long ago to make teddy bears, but my bears have evolved.  I will ship this to a good home for $5 + shipping.

This is new for me, but they exist already so I can't take credit for the idea.  I have eight of them in my shop, so pick your color!  Here's a listing for one of them...  https://handmadeartists.com/product-details/Crochet,%20Knitting,%20and%20Needlecraft/Womens/Ladies%20Headband%20Hand%20Knit%20in%20Vibrant%20Sunnyt%20Yellow/?pid=2014011213154409a6f

Blog Ring Archive / Blog Ring Sign Up - October 2013
« on: September 29, 2013, 06:13:40 PM »
Greetings everyone!  In an effort to get people and keep them interested, I have come up with a new plan to try in this round of the blog ring.  It's different....  yes...  but let's give it a shot and see if it works.

A number of things were taken into consideration.  People don't stay with it, first of all.  If you're at the end of the list, it seems like forever until it's your turn.  And then there's the people who get featured who stopped participating.  It is hard to stay with something for four-six weeks or more when you only get featured once...  It's so easy to drop out once that's happened.  And, Andrew recently mentioned that the Highlights pages are one of the most popular on the site.

So this is how this ring is going to work....

  • There will be a different theme each week.  I will announce it every Wednesday, beginning October 2.
  • There will NOT be a featured artist each week.  Rather everyone in the group can be featured every week in keeping with the theme.  And every artist can be featured more than once!  It will be up to each blog writer to pick and choose which artist(s) to use - some or all of them!
  • Since you will have found several items from several participants' shops that fit the theme, you'll already be most of the way there to make a highlight out of those shops/items, too!  If you'd like to take this additional step, go for it!!!  Making a highlight in addition to blogging is not required.
  • Those who do NOT participate for two weeks in a row will be dropped from this blog ring.  I will be watching it.
  • Because of this format, I'd like to limit this round to no more than ten (10) participants.  Each week, I will post the list of participants in the thread with the theme so you won't have to be bouncing back and forth.

This round of the Blog Ring will only run four weeks and then it will end.  If it works (my fingers are crossed), I will do a new sign-up for a new blog ring to start November 10 or so and run through December 15th...  just in time for shopping season.

I hope everyone thinks this sounds like fun.  Let's all give it a try!  So who's in?

Here's my latest bear!  He stands 15 inches tall and is silky to the touch and squishy to hug.  He has safety eyes and an embroidered nose.  His arms and legs move so he can be posed however you like.  This handmade toy teddy is ready to be loved!
